Johnny Depp Vs. Amber Heard


Over the last few weeks Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have been battling in a televised court case. It started when Johnny sued Amber Heard for making false claims about him that started negatively impacting his career. She published an article in the Washington Post in 2018 that hinted that she was a victim of domestic violence while married to Johnny Depp. In response to Johnny’s legal action, Amber Heard is countersuing Johnny. The trial started on April 18, and it is still continuing.

In Johnny Depp’s testimony, he has claimed that he has never hit Amber Heard and that Amber was the abusive one in the relationship, calling him names and engaging in hateful speech that would quickly  turn into  violence.

“It could begin with a slap, it could begin with a shove, it could begin with throwing a TV remote at my head, throwing a glass of wine in my face,”

Johnny Depp also testified that Amber Heard was angry after a meeting she had with a lawyer about a possible postnuptial agreement and she threw a bottle of vodka at Johnny which severed his finger.

On the other hand, in Amber’s testimony she described being sexually assaulted by Depp and waking up to bloody messages on the wall, discovering that his finger had been injured. Later in her testimony, she admits to hitting Johnny in defense of her younger sister. Amber thought that Johnny was going to hit her sister and cause her to fall down a flight of stairs.

While Ms. Heard’s stories have continued to grow new and convenient details, Mr. Depp’s recollections have remained exactly the same throughout the six painful years since her first allegations were made. His truth — the truth — is the same no matter the environment in which it has been presented
