There’s a new twist in one of the biggest scandals in Hollywood. After a stormy divorce, domestic abuse accusations and petitions to have Johnny Depp removed from the cast of multiple movies, now Johnny Depp claims that the public has been mislead.
Johnny Depp divorced Amber Heard in 2016 after his former wife accused him of domestic abuse and obtained a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp. She got quickly over the separation and in the summer of 2016 she began dating Elon Musk. This relationship was also doomed because it ended one year later.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorced got finalized last year with Amber Heard receiving $7 million as a divorce settlement, funds that she donated.
After reaching an agreement with Johnny Depp, Amber Heard withdrew the domestic abuse allegations ( when the accusations were made Amber Heard claimed Johnny Depp pulled her hair, tried to chock her with a pillow and hit her in the eye with a mobile phone ). Amber Heard also accepted not to talk in public about the divorce.
Johnny Depp also withdrew his accusations that Amber Heard was a gold-digger. Both admitted that their marriage was “volatile” but there was “never any intentional physical or emotional violence“.
Well, the peace between Heard and Depp lasted until last year until Amber Heard published a story in the Washington Post with the title: ” I talked against sexual violence – and i faced the wrath of our culture. Something must change“.
Johnny Depp claims that Amber Heard violated the divorce agreement and shed her asking for $50 million in damages. Johnny Depp accuses his former wife of staging things in order to advance her Hollywood career while Johnny Depp’s career was hurt because of the scandal and accusations made by Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp also said that while their were still married, Amber Heard cheated on him with billionaire Elon Musc and that the affair started one month after the wedding. The accusations were denied by Elon Musk’s publicist.
Moreover, Johnny Depp says Amber Heard was never struck in the face by a mobile phone. Johnny Depp and his legal team gathered many evidence – video recordings and testimonies from people working in the building their lived in while they were married – that show that Amber Heard never had a black eye. There is even one video in the building’s lobby in which – allegedly – one of Amber Heard’s friends punches her in the eye then they both start laughing.
And if this isn’t enough, Johnny Depp also brings in the violent behavior of Amber Heard. The actress was arrested at the Seattle-Tacoma international airport for punching one of her former lovers, Tasya Van Ree. Amber Heard was never arraigned and Tasya van Ree said that the incident was misinterpreted.
Johnny Depp also claims that Amber Heard crushed the middle finger of his right hand after she threw a vodka bottle towards him. The incident allegedly happened in Australia. Apparently, Johnny Depp needed medical attention and stitches.
According to Johnny Depp’s legal team this was just one of the times when Amber Heard threw different objects at him. They claim that Amber Heard made it a habit to punch Johnny Depp and, one time, she punched him in the face when Johnny Depp was late to a party she hosted in 2016.
