Heard sat for an intense deposition back in 2016 while she was going through the nasty divorce with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, and the video has now been released as the two stars go through another round of litigation.
In the 2-minute snippet from the deposition, a clearly upset Heard begins to describe the fight that led up to her striking the actor.
“He was hitting me … hard and repeatedly,” Heard explained, adding, “I was screaming. Security walks in and they don’t do anything about it.”
The actress is then cut off by Depp’s attorney from off camera, who claims to just want a “yes or no” answer to the question that was asked.
Heard’s lawyer then jumps in to defend his client and the entire room of lawyers erupts before the moderator calms everyone down.
Heard is then asked again if she has ever hit Depp, and she continues with the story, claiming her sister ran down to help and admitting, “I am protective over my baby sister.”
“He was about to push my sister down the stairs,” the actress emotionally explains, adding, “When he laid hands on her I don’t know what I did, but I know I jumped in between the action that I saw could lead to a fatal accident with my sister.”
Along with the deposition video, multiple photos have surfaced appearing to show Heard’s hair ripped out of her scalp, although it’s unclear if it’s from the same incident.
There are also pictures of the former couple’s apartment in shambles from the altercations they endured.
Shortly after Heard sat for the grilling back in 2016, she settled up her divorce with Depp and the deposition and video never went public.
However, in the midst of the stars once again battling it out over abuse allegations, the old evidence has surfaced.
