The co-star of Aquaman movie admits to “hitting” her ex-husband, Johnny Depp and warns that she “can’t promise you I won’t get physical again” in an explosive audion confession.
The exclusive audio confession of Amber Heard to her ex-husband, Johnny Depp was first published by the Daily Mail. The recordings taped on the Aquaman actress’s phone in 2015 as the couple attempted to talk through their marriage problems, caused the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp to be trending on Twitter as fans claimed vindication for the Pirates of the Carribean star.
Heard, 33 and Depp, 56 were ended that toxic marriage in 2016. They are locked in a thunderous legal and public relations battle after their fallout marriage, where both of them non-stop accusing the other of domestic violence.
In the audio, which is recorded a few months before Heard filed for divorce, the pair were having a discussion on a violet dust-up the previous evening where Depp accuses her of punching him in the jaw.
“I’m sorry that I didn’t… hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you,” she says. “Babe, you’re not punched.”
Depp, audibly upset, says, “Don’t tell me what it feels like to be punched!”
After that, Heard replies sarcastically, “I know, you’ve been in a lot of fights, been around a long time. I know, I know. Yeah.”
Depp replied, “No! When you have a f***king closed fist.”
Heard said, “You didn’t get punched. You got hit. I’m sorry I hit you like this. But I did not punch you. I did not f***ing deck you. I f***ing was hitting you. I don’t know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you’re fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you.”
Later then Depp says that he texted their building manager, Travis, asked him to come to their home out of fear if the fight would escalate. Heard taunts Depps as a “baby” and tells him to “grow the f*** up”.
“I know, come and save me,” Heard said. “Travis to the rescue…You go f***ing j**k, go j**k him off. I don’t care. I really could care less.”
Towards the end of the audiotape, Depp talks about the need for them to be moved to separate rooms if an argument “escalates to the point of where it’s just insulting for both of us… or if it gets to that physical f***ing shit, the violence.”
However, Heard said, “I can’t promise that it will all be perfect.” The star added, “I can’t promise you I won’t get physical again. God f***ing sometimes I get so mad I lose it.”
Last year, Depp has launched a USD50 million defamation suit against Heard after she penned an opinion piece in an American newspaper which is The Washington Post describing her experience as a victim of domestic violence. Before this, Depp also has accused Heard of severing the top of his finger with a vodka bottle.
Even-though Depp was not named in the piece, but the star argued that it strongly implied he was the perpetrator and claims it directly led to him being dumped from his long-running role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Heard responded to the Depp defamation suit with a 300-page filing outlining the allegedly “horrific” abuse which she said has suffered at Depp’s hands. She even describing Depp as “the monster” who often became “delusional and violent” when abusing drugs and alcohol.
According to Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman who told Daily Mail, the audio confession was containing Amber Heard’s chilling confessions of violence further expose and destroy her abuse hoax.
Later on, the spokeswoman for Heard accused Depp of his motive of revenge by leaking the tape. “Anyone familiar with the dynamics of domestic abuse would immediately recognize what is really going on here,” she said.
Too sad, but most of the entertainment industry figures in Hollywood spoken up in Depp’s defense.
“I have been in recovery circles of many kinds and stories of men receiving abuse are far too common. Johnny Depp is sadly not an isolated case. No matter your gender you deserve to be safe from abuse be it emotional or physical,” said TV producer Jesse Zook Mann on Twitter.
