Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – In a new court filing Amber Heard detailed how she suffered years of abuse from her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, who has filed a $50 million defamation suit against her.
Heard claimed that Depp repeatedly beat her and strangled her while he was intoxicated with drugs and alcohol, Variety. Her filing was in response to the defamation suit the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor filed against her for a 2018 op-ed article she wrote for the Washington Post, where she revealed that she was a victim of domestic abuse without naming her abuser.
The ‘Aquaman’ marine actress stated in her filing that a year into their relationship she noticed that Depp was abusing alcohol and drugs, and that whenever he would use he would become a completely different person.
She called that version of Depp “the Monster”, and the actor would not remember any of his violent conduct when he became sober.
She also recalled one incident in May 2014, when they boarded a private jet from Boston to Los Angeles and Depp appeared to be drunk and holding a bottle of champagne. The actor’s handlers told Heard that he was very upset because he was filming a movie with a romantic scene with James Franco.
“Soon, Johnny began to throw objects at me. Instead of reacting to his behavior, I simply moved seats,” Heard said. “That didn’t stop him. He provocatively pushed a chair at me as I walked by, yelled at me, and taunted me by yelling out the name ‘James Franco.'”
Heard also claimed that a month after they married in February 2015, Depp took a three-day bender on ecstasy in Australia. The couple had an argument, after which the actor began to push her and slap her before she could retreat to a locked bedroom. The fight continued the next day, and by then Depp had already hit her multiple times, choked her, and even spit on her.
She continued to detail other incidents of abuse that dragged on until their divorce in 2017.
In a statement, a representative for Depp told Page Six claimed that Heard has also been physically violent towards the actor. It was also said that Depp’s legal team are interviewing other women who have come forward with allegations that they were victims of violence and other forms of abuse at the hands of Heard.
The representative further stated that they have issued subpoenas against Heard and her friend, Elon Musk, as well as other witnesses.
