Just weeks after Johnny Depp filed a $50 million lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard for ‘defamation’, the Pirates of the Caribbean star now alleges that Heard punched him and severed his finger. Aquaman star Amber Heard talked about the domestic abuse in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, which prompted Johnny’s defamation lawsuit against her. “The op-ed depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her,” the complaint read.
It also stated that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false” and that there are testimonies from two separate police officers, third-party witnesses, and 87 newly-obtained surveillance footage that could refute her.
The lawsuit also listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks. The Blast managed to obtain a photo of Johnny’s black-eye which was allegedly caused by Amber after he was late for her 30th birthday dinner on April 21, 2016.
The suit also mentioned that she had thrown a vodka bottle at him and severed the middle finger and shattered the bones. She allegedly punched him in bed.
Fans from across the globe have forward in support of Johnny Depp and he is reported to be quite overwhelmed by the response. A source told Hollywood Life, "Johnny is overwhelmed by all the love and support he’s receiving from fans on Twitter. He is finally feeling vindicated after years of looking like the 'bad guy' and not believing his side of the story’’ it added.
