After hours of testimony, John Galliano will have to wait another 3 months to learn his fate for hurling anti-semitic slurs.

The trial was only supposed to last the afternoon, but dragged on all the way past 10pm!!!

When court was finally adjourned the three judges said they will reconvene on September 8th with their verdict.

John Galliano Testifies!

As expected, John Galliano took the stand in a Parisian courtroom on Wednesday where he is on trial for hurling anti-semitic slurs earlier this year.

GQ is live-tweeting from the trial and this is what the fallen designer told the three judges presiding:

-He doesn't remember anything from the rant that lasted 45 minutes
-He says he's a recovering addict
-He started drinking because Dior was doing so well, but after each "high" he would crash and alcohol helped him escape
-When the stock market crashed in 2008, he was under a lot of pressure and took on a lot of line extensions
-He lost a friend named Stephen, who protected him
-His father's death made him turn to sleeping pills because he didn't have time to mourn
-He admits to being in denial
-He's still in recovery, but feeling much better

Later, the "I love Hitler" video was played and Galliano took the stand for a second time to explain himself:

-The words in the video aren't his views. He sees someone who needs help and has been pushed to the edge
-He's fought discrimination all his life as he's also been subjected to it
-The man in the video is not the real John Galliano
-He has no memory of the events and only read about them in the press

The prosecution then asked how Galliano could apologize for something he never did, even though it's obviously him in the video.

Stay tuned…
