Johnny Depp: “I was the victim”
Depp, however, claimed to have been a victim of abuse by his ex-wife. “She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim,” he argued. “While combining prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Mrs. Heard committed countless acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of an outside witness, which in some cases caused me serious bodily harm.” In her statement, Depp claimed that Heard “hit me, punched me and kicked me” and added: “She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects at my body and head, like heavy bottles, soda cans, candles cans, remote controls for televisions and paint thinners, which hurt me badly “.
Heard’s lawyer, Eric George, denied the accusations against the actress: “The increasingly desperate attempts of Mr. Depp and his advisers to revive his career by initiating baseless litigation against so many people who were once close to him (his lawyers , former managers and their ex-spouse) do not deceive anyone. ”
Depp alleged that he had asked Heard to sign a post-nuptial agreement after the two had married in 2015. “She went crazy and started throwing me bottles,” said Depp. “The first bottle went through my head and failed, but then she threw a big bottle of glass vodka.” The actor said the bottle hit the countertop where he had his hand and caused his finger to break, finally cutting off the tip of his finger. “I had to undergo three surgeries to rebuild my finger,” he said. “I was afraid of losing my finger, my arm and my life.”
In 2016, Depp said he sought a divorce from Heard after an incident in which he found stool in his bed. “After I retired from Mrs. Heard’s presence in the attic on April 21, 2016, the next morning, Mrs. Heard or one of her friends defecated in my bed as a kind of sick joke before they left together to Coachella, “he wrote. He stated that Heard admitted to the manager of his farm “that the feces were ‘just a harmless joke.'”
