Amber Heard Hits Back At Johnny Depp's Defamation Suit

Johnny Depp filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex Amber Heard, calling her abuse claims “an elaborate hoax.” The actress has responded by going full throttle with her allegations, detailing multiple alleged incidents of “horrific” abuse by the actor throughout their marriage in documents obtained by Page Six. And while Depp claims he has evidence that she’s faked the attacks, Heard is armed with screenshots showing Depp calling himself a “savage” and apologizing for going “too far” with his “rage.”

The actress claims that Depp has repeatedly shoved her, hit her, ripped out her hair, choked her near suffocation, and even threatened to “kill” her on one occasion. One of the alleged attacks occurred on a private flight in 2014, when Depp was drunk and became jealous that she had just filmed a romantic scene with James Franco for a movie.

Heard also notes that substance abuse plays a part in his alleged behavior, as she noticed him “abusing drugs and alcohol” a year after they started dating in early 2012. When he was using, she says “he would become a totally different person,” who the former couple called “The Monster.” In March 2015, a month into their marriage, the actor was supposed to be clean, but she claims he went on a three-day ecstasy bender that led to another “heated” argument that Depp made violent.
