Amber Heard is responding to Johnny Depp in their million dollar defamation lawsuit, and the actress claims he is lying to the court about a very important moment that went down during their huge blowout argument.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Amber says that Johnny has "clearly perjured himself claiming that there was only one 911 call reporting his abuse on the evening of May 21, 2016. "
The accusation is part of a document from Heard requesting that the defamation case be moved out of Virginia and to her local jurisdiction in California.
The filing by the "Aquaman" star's team states, "Readily obtainable public records of LAPD call logs from that evening show that iO Tillet Wright called 911 at 8:30 PM to report Mr. Depp's violent and destructive behavior that evening, confirming the eyewitness accounts of how iO heard that Mr. Depp was becoming violent toward Ms. Heard over the phone and then called 911."
As we first reported, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star claimed Wright waited over an hour and a half before calling police, even though he testified that he had called 911 after hearing Heard scream out during the fight.
Video surveillance, obtained by Depp's legal team, actually show the actor leaving the residential building he shared with Heard in L.A. around 8:30, which is interesting considering the call to LAPD wasn’t made until 10:00 PM.
Heard disagrees with her ex-husband and filed LAPD incident logs of her own. According to the new documents, there does appear to be a call made during the time the argument between the two was going down.
According to Heard's records, a call was made at exactly 8:30 pm on the night of May, 21 2016. The log states, "received call fr victim friend "Amber", Assaulted by boyfriend, refused to give further."
According to records, a second call was then made at 10:09 PM which reads, "female stated she was on phone with her friend and she began screaming at her husband, subj Amber Heard, Husband Johnny Heard."
Interestingly in the records filed by Amber, one of the last logs published by LAPD claims officers, "met w/vict. chcked loc. verified husband left. loc vict advised verbal dispute and refused to give any furthr info. issue bus card."
Depp's legal team has pointed out that Amber told police the two were only engaged in a "verbal dispute," and have filed statements by LAPD officers on the call who claim they did not see any evidence of physical abuse suffered by Heard.
As we reported, Depp filed a declaration in the case claiming, "I have denied Ms. Heard’s allegations vehemently since she first made them in May 2016," adding that he still believes she, "walked into court to obtain a temporary restraining order with painted-on bruises."
With the filing of the new police logs, Heard wants Depp to be, "held responsible for submitting provably false and misleading, and in any event, irrelevant -statements in his declaration," adding, "These signal an intention by Mr. Depp to litigate in the court of public opinion."
She continues, "The true impetus of this lawsuit is not the alleged defamation but that three years after the fact, Mr. Depp found 'new evidence' he wanted to present to a court some 3,000 miles from where any evidence or witnesses are found."
Depp's attorney, Adam Waldman, tells The Blast, "Ms. Heard says she 'will not be silenced,' and then remains silent for months as her hoax is buried by the avalanche of evidence." He adds, "As for her hoax-assisting friends, willing to perjure themselves for her 3 years ago ― where are they now?"
Waldman says, "Ms. Heard continues to defraud her abused hoax victim Mr. Depp, the #metoo movement she masquerades as the leader of, and other real abuse victims worldwide."
A judge will now make the decision on whether the case will remain in Virginia or be moved to California.
