An audio confession from Amber Heard has just seen the actress admit to physically assaulting ex-husband Johnny Depp. The 33-year-old has made headlines galore for her messy 2017 divorce from the “Pirates of the Carribean” actor – the audio recording exclusively obtained by The Daily Mail today sees the actress confess to violence.
The audio dates back to 2015.
The taped conversations were as the former couple was attempting to work their way through their marital problems.
Amber denies “punching” the actor, but she did confess to unleashing violence.
“I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched,” Amber is heard saying.
“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,” the actress continued.
The conversation between the two then moved to arguing as Amber accused her then-husband of taking her “for granted,” per The Daily Mail.
Depp was heard saying: “I’m not the one who throws pots and pans and whatever the f*ck else at me.”
Amber was also heard telling the 56-year-old Hollywood heavyweight that he was acting like a child.
“You are such a baby. Grow the f**k up Johnny,” Amber explosively said, also calling him a “vacation husband.”
“You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn’t matter how friendly it is, it’s not cool,” she added.
Amber then warned that she couldn’t promise that she wouldn’t get violent again: “I can’t promise you I won’t get physical again. God I f**king sometimes get so mad I lose it.”
Amber threw out accusations that Johnny beat her during their tumultuous 18-month marriage, with Johnny likewise accusing Amber – the actor claims that Amber “put a cigarette out” on his cheek.
The cell phone conversation was a clear back-and-forth of arguing, accusations, and – it would appear – confessions.
Dubbing her “manic,” Depp said: I’m not going be in a physical f–king altercation with you… you f–king hit me last night.”
“That’s different. That’s different. One does not negate the other. That’s irrelevant, that’s a complete non sequitur,” Amber replied, adding:
“Just because I’ve thrown pots and pans does not mean you cannot come and knock on my door.”
Meanwhile, there was also an admission from Depp.
“The only time I ever threw anything at you was when you f**king threw the cans at me in Australia,” he is heard saying.
Amber’s Washington Post op-ed alleging that she was a victim of abuse at the hands of Depp cost her dearly – Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit as a result of her words.
“I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out,” she wrote, omitting any name, but highly suggesting that it was Depp.
Amber has self-posted bruised images claiming to be a result of Depp’s alleged violence. Depp, meanwhile suffered a severed finger one month into their marriage – he claimed that Amber threw bottles at him when she became enraged following his request to sign a pre-nup.
The former couple married in a private ceremony in 2015 with Amber filing for divorce in May 2016. A $7 million divorce settlement was reached in August 2016. Amber donated her settlement money to charity.
