Actress Amber Heard admits hitting former husband Johnny Depp

Actress Amber Heard admits hitting former husband Johnny Depp”

This has all come out as the petition to remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2 nears 45,000 signatures, so we'll just have to wait and see if Warner Bros. decides to fire the actress amid these new allegations.

In his $50 million lawsuit, Johnny Depp describes many incidents of domestic abuse that he suffered at the hands of his (then) wife Amber Heard, including one incident where she punched him twice in the face and another where she shattered his finger with a vodka bottle, and his finger had to be surgically reattached.

Heard shot back by filing more than 300 pages of documents, expanding on the abuse allegations she lodged against Depp during their divorce in 2016.

Waldman claimed Heard "recorded her conversations" with Depp. "This must be recognised, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry".

The audio, shared by the Daily Mail and confirmed to USA TODAY by Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman as a real recording from 2015, includes Heard and Depp discussing an incident that got physical. Heard perpetrated serial violence against Mr. Depp, and then concocted an elaborate abuse hoax to cover it up. Ms.

"I'm not going to fight you".

"After you got f-ing physically violent with me..." I did not f***ing deck you.

A spokeswoman for Heard accused Depp of "vindictively" leaking the tape.

Depp had the following to say about their abusive relationship in the clip, citing Heard's unreasonable behavior as to why things get out of hand.

Then the dialogue continues, and amber meets her lover: "I hit you..."

But the ill feelings cropped up again after she wrote in a 2018 article: "I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture's wrath for women who speak out".

But Depp went a step further in May 2019, saying that "while mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol", Heard "hit, punched, and kicked me".

She added, "For Mr Depp, who lived and lives in an echo chamber of his own making, to try to twist this private conversation to suggest either that he didn't abuse Ms Heard or that she somehow "deserved it" is nothing more than the latest misogynistic effort at victim-blaming".

Depp, who claims in his suit against Heard that her Washington Post piece directly resulted in him being dumped from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, reportedly tried to get Heard removed from the role the first time around.
