  • Amber Heard's sister said she regrettably joked about domestic abuse with Johnny Depp in 2013.

  • Whitney Henriquez testified that she regrets the joke sent over text, Law & Crime reported.

  • Henriquez said she wouldn't have made the joke if she knew what she knows now.

Amber Heard's sister, Whitney Henriquez, testified that she regretted joking about domestic abuse with her sister's ex-husband Johnny Depp, Law & Crime reported.

Rebecca Lecaroz, one of Depp's lawyers, asked Henriquez why she thought it was a good idea to take cocaine with Depp after suspecting he was abusing her sister, The Washington Post reported.

"Notwithstanding that, in June 2013, you were actually joking with Mr. Depp about hitting your sister, right?" Depp's attorney asked Henriquez, according to Law & Crime.

Henriquez replied: "Regrettably over a text message, yes."

She said she wasn't encouraging Depp to hit Heard but was "regrettably, joking" about it.

The Post reported that Henriquez called the text "unfortunate" and said she wasn't aware of the situation at that point.

"I never would have said that now knowing what I know," Henriquez said.

Henriquez's comments were part of her testimony on Wednesday in front of a Virginia court, where she also said Depp hung a Yorkie out of a moving car and then made comments about placing it in the microwave after taking large amounts of cocaine and alcohol.

The Pirate of the Caribbean star is suing Hear for $50 million for defamation. He accused her of damaging his career with false domestic-violence allegations. Heard is countersuing Depp for $100 million.
