Amber Heard has claimed that Johnny Depp held his dog Boo out of the window of a moving vehicle.

During her testimony, Amber, 36, told a US court that Johnny, 58, "howled like an animal" as he held their four-legged friend outside of the car.

As she took to the stand at Fairfax County Court on Wednesday (May 4), she told jurors that the alleged incident took place in March 2013.

The actress claimed that Johnny binged on cocaine and drink throughout the night and repeatedly accused her of infidelity.

Johnny is suing Amber for libel over a 2018 article she wrote in The Washington Post, detailing her experience with domestic abuse.

While the oped piece doesn't name Johnny, his lawyers say falsely implies he physically and sexually abused her while they were together.

The Aquaman actress made claims that she was finally able to get Johnny to leave her home later in the evening after he had "seemingly calmed down" and "reluctantly" agreed to go with him to go to a photo shoot.

She claimed to the court: "We were driving up this street and he has the window down, he's smoking [and] at some point, he starts howling out of the window.

"If I remember correctly, he grabs Boo, his dog, who is a slightly chunkier Yorkshire Terrier, he grabs Boo and holds Boo out of the window of the moving car and he's howling like an animal while holding the dog out the window.

She added: "And everyone in the car – I'll never forget it – everyone just froze, no one did anything.

"I too was torn as to what I should do because I didn't want to do anything to cause him to react and drop the dog.

"It was just this eerie moment where he was howling and holding this animal out the window… and I have this eerie memory of no one really reacting to him."

The actress told the court she had been "heartbroken" the first time Johnny had allegedly been violent towards her and slapped her three times across the face.

She told the court: "[It was] seemingly so stupid and insignificant (but) I will never forget it, it changed my life.=

"He slapped me across the face, and I laughed because I didn't know what else to do.

Amber is due to continue giving evidence in the libel trial in Virginia later on in the week.

The case continues.
