In a series of expletive-laced text messages to talent agent and Lady Gaga's former fiancé Cristian Carino, Johnny Depp, 56, called ex-wife Amber Heard's accusations of abuse - revealed through tabloid stories during the split between the two - a 'flat out lie," months after Depp sent text messages to his friend Paul Bettany ("A Knight's Tale) saying that they should "burn" Amber. "I want this done with as much as her," Depp wrote to Carino after Heard's lawyers accused him of violating a restraining order after Carino set up a meeting between the two in an attempt to encourage reconciliation. "What can I do??? Admit something that never happened!??? And just swallow a ... ‘flat out lie'? She needs to be reasonable…I ain't carrying an underserved wife beater charge on my back for her!"
