Heard submitted a declaration as a response to Depp’s $50 million lawsuit that he filed earlier this year.
In her filing, Heard claims that Depp began to abuse drugs and alcohol about a year into their relationship. She claims he frequently went in and out of “alcohol dependency medical care.” She claims he “used both illegal narcotics and prescription medications.”
Heard claims the drug use made him “a totally different person” that she dubbed “the Monster.”
She claims that the first time Depp hit her was in late 2012 or early 2013. She claims that she laughed at something he had said and he responded by slapping her across the face multiple times.
“I thought about leaving Johnny then,” she writes.
She claims that in May 2014, Depp became enraged because she was filming a movie with James Franco. She claims during a flight on a private jet, he began throwing objects at her.
“At some point,” she writes, “I stood up, and Johnny kicked me in the back, causing me to fall over. Johnny threw his boot at me while I was on the ground. Johnny continued to scream obscenities until he went into the plane bathroom and passed out locked in the bathroom for the remainder of the flight.”
Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, tells The Blast “There are 87 surveillance videos, 19 eyewitness statements (and growing) and other evidence that show beyond any doubt Amber Heard also perjured herself when she sought and received a temporary restraining order from a California court for a battering hoax she claimed she suffered on May 21, 2016. We will also seek consequences for this perjurious claim.”
During a trip to Australia in March 2015, she claims Depp went on an ecstasy bender. Heard claims the two got into another fight and claims Depp “hit me multiple times, shoved and pushed me to the ground, choked me, and spit in my face.”
In a December 2015 incident, she claims Depp “threw another decanter at me, knocked items around the room, and punched a wall.” She also claims he “slapped me hard, grabbed me by my hair and dragged me from a stairwell to the office to the living to the kitchen to the bedroom and then to the guest room.”
Heard also denies any claims that she abused Johnny and says she “never attacked Johnny other than in self-defense (and in defense of my little sister).”
“We are now interviewing other women who have come forward claiming they are victims of domestic violence at the hands of Amber heard, in addition to Johnny Depp and Tasya van Rhee. Regarding her public attack on Ms Rhee, Amber Heard was arrested and incarcerated for domestic violence, although she later lied about those facts too.”
We are told that Depp’s team intends on filing proof via depositions from the couple’s divorce, where Amber admitted to assaulting Johnny.
Waldman continued, “Amber Heard’s problem is not only violence but perjury. Today she filed that she only ever hit Johnny Depp once, to protect her sister Whitney, and cites her own deposition. The reality is that in her own deposition, Amber Heard grudgingly admits to multiple violent attacks she committed on Mr. Depp, including throwing a can of paint thinner into his head in front of witnesses, punching him in the face when they were alone, and kicking a door into his head when he was kneeling down. And she refused to answer under oath whether she herself had violently abused her own sister Whitney.”
