As he accused her of cheating on him, he also slit the middle finger of his right hand. He used the blood and paint to write "Billy Bob" and "Easy Amber" on one of the mirrors in their house.
She had also mentioned that Johnny did not bother to treat his wound for over 24 hours and the injury had become serious enough for his to put the shoot at halt for four weeks as he flew to LA to get it operated. The doctors had to use a part of skin from his hands in order to cure the cut.
