Actress Amber Heard has claimed that Johnny Depp threatened to kill her as she recounted years of abuse she endured by her former husband, in the new court documents filed in response to his $50 million defamation lawsuit against her.
According to the news source, Hollywood actress has referred to Depp as “the monster” multiple times in the court filings and claimed he wouldn’t remember the abuse due to his excessive drinking and drug use.
As being reported Amber Heard has claimed that at their apartment in December 2015, the former Pirates of the Caribbean star grabbed her by the hair and throat, slapped her in the face and screamed, “I’ll f***ing kill you, you hear me?” He allegedly dragged her on a bed and began punching her head, breaking the bed frame in the process.
“For a while, I could not scream or breathe. I worried that Johnny was in a blacked-out state and unaware of the damage he was doing and that he could actually kill me,” Heard further added.
Heard has recalled Jonny Depp indulging in drugs and alcohol abuse, a year after dating him. They started dating in 2012. In May 2014, the actress has also claimed that Depp began drinking heavily, threw items and verbally abused her on a private flight. Depp later apologized via text, saying he couldn’t remember what happened.
Heard and Depp got married in 2015, but a month later he went on a three-day bender on ecstasy. After Depp reportedly threw a cellphone at her face “like a baseball pitcher” in May 2016, Heard decided to leave him and filed a restraining order. They divorced in January 2017 and Heard reported the abuse, but found very little support from the public.
“I lost a part for a movie in which I had already been cast. People I have never met or spoken to threatened me with violence,” Heard said; and also added that”People accused me of having abused Johnny. That simply is not true. I never attacked Johnny other than in self-defense.”
Johnny Depp has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard for claims that his ex-wife insinuated he was the abuser and called her allegations a hoax.
