Amber Heard admits hitting Johnny Depp

Actor Johnny Depp claimed in US court on Wednesday that his ex-wife Amber Heard’s accusations of violence had cost him “everything”, placing him in the state of a “finished” man.

When these allegations quickly went around the world, telling people that I was a danger, drunk, on cocaine, a man who, suddenly in my 50s, beat women, it was over. You are finished“, estimated the star.

The Hollywood star had used the previous hours of his testimony to try to convince the jurors that Amber Heard was the one who, in their couple, wore blows.

On the second day of his public speaking, the flagship moment of this legal procedure for defamation, Johnny Depp assured that he had lost “regardless of the outcome of the trial“.

The media coverage of this alleged violence has, according to him, put a stop to his career. “It didn’t take long for Disney to decide to drop me from the Pirate franchise“Caribbean,” he said of the five-movie series that debuted in 2003 and grossed more than $4.5 billion at the global box office.

At the helm, the actor accused Amber Heard of violence she allegedly inflicted on him during their marriage, which he described as toxic.

Mrs. Heard, in her frustration and in her rage, she hit“, said the star of the 7th art.

It could start with a slap, a push. She threw a TV remote at my head, a glass of wine in my face“, explained Johnny Depp, 58, saying that the actress had “a need for conflict, a need for violence“.

An audio of Depp and Heard

According to DailyMailthe trial jury heard audio recordings of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard talking about a fight in which the actress admits to punching him and where he claims she kicked the door of The bathroom.

The recordings appear to have been taken by Depp, who previously said he made it a habit. This is the first time the trial has heard Heard’s voice – she is due to testify later in the case.

In an excerpt, Amber Heard tells Johnny Depp: “I didn’t hit you. I’m sorry I didn’t give you a real slap in the face. I hit you, I didn’t hit you“.

Depp responds:Don’t tell me how it feels to be hit“.

Heard replies:You’ve been in a lot of fights, you’ve been there a long time. You didn’t get punched. You have been hit. I’m sorry for hitting you like that, I didn’t hit you. I didn’t fucking hit you. I fucking hit you. I don’t know what the movement of my hand was. You’re okay. I didn’t hurt you, I didn’t hit you, I was hitting you. I’m not sitting here moping. you are a fucking baby“, says Heard.

Shouting, Heard continues: “You’re a real baby! Grow up a little Johnny“.

When Johnny Depp said it was a physical fight, Heard said: “I started a physical fight“.

Depp responds:I walked out of there“.

With bitter sarcasm, Heard said: “You are wonderful.”

“I could hardly ever go see my children”

The two former spouses accuse each other of defamation during this trial, very followed and partly broadcast on the news channels, which is held near Washington, following a column she wrote in 2018.

In this text published by the Washington Post, Amber Heard, now 35, did not name Johnny Depp, whom she married in 2015. But she mentioned the accusations of domestic violence she had brought against her husband in 2016.

Gray suit on black shirt, the serious mine, the star, on Wednesday, largely described, in a slow tone, the verbal insults and alleged toxic attitudes of his ex-wife, during their two years of union.

I could almost never go see my children, spend time with them, because she had to have me with her all the time for her own needs.“, lamented Johnny Depp who added that Amber Heard regularly called him a “bad father”.

Faced with these alleged attacks, the actor claims to be “never violent“.

On Wednesday morning, the hearing focused on the injury suffered by the actor in March 2015, during a marital dispute.

Accompanied by Amber Heard, Johnny Depp was then in Australia for the filming of the fifth film in the series “Pirates of the Caribbean.

Violence and suicide threats

She approached me and grabbed the bottle of vodka. She backed up and threw it at me“, narrated the actor, miming the scene at the helm.

His right middle finger would then have been deeply cut. “I looked at my bone. The blood was just flowing“, he testified while pointing his finger.

Photos of the injury and of the actor lying on a stretcher in the hospital were displayed in the courtroom and aired on numerous media broadcasts of the trial.

Asked by doctors at the Australian hospital about the circumstances of the incident, Johnny Depp allegedly lied and claimed to have injured himself while closing a door.

“I didn’t want to reveal it was Miss Heard. I didn’t want to cause her any trouble“, he then explained.

Questioned by one of his lawyers, he justified having continued this relationship in the image of his father who was abused by his wife.

During his first day of testimony on Tuesday, Johnny Depp had testified at length to the physical and psychological violence that his mother allegedly inflicted on him during his childhood.

On Wednesday, the actor also indicated that Amber Heard would have threatened to commit suicide if he left her.

Present in the courtroom, the actress, who starred in the big Hollywood productions “Justice League” and “Aquaman”, listened carefully to this story, regularly taking notes.
