Actress Amber Heard recounted the years of abuse she endured from her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, in her recent court documents filed in response to the previous $50 million defamation lawsuit against her.
She accused Johnny Depp as “the Monster” numerous times in her statement and claimed that wouldn’t remember any of those abuses due to his extensive drinking and substance use, as reported by Page Six.
She recalls an incident in their LA apartment in December 2015, where Johnny Depp grabbed Heard by the hair and throat, slapped her screamed,
“I’ll f—ing kill you, you hear me?”
He allegedly dragged her to a bed and began smacking her head thereby breaking the bed frame in the process.

Heard mentioned in her statement,
“For a while, I could not scream or breathe. I worried that Johnny was in a blacked-out state and unaware of the damage he was doing and that he could actually kill me,”
“Johnny often would not remember his delusional and violent conduct after he came out of his drunk or medicated states…Because I loved Johnny, I had believed his multiple promises that he could and would get better. I was wrong.”
In May of 2014, the Amber Heard claimed that Depp began drinking heavily, threw stuff at her and verbally abusing her.
She claimed Depp kicking her and knocking her down to the ground, owing to which she passed out in the restroom of the plane.
He later apologized to her via text message, saying he couldn’t recount what happened.
Johnny's assistant also texted Heard, saying
“He’s a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get.”
Heard penned an op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018 and briefed her abuse, but didn't mention Depp in the article.
The actor filed a $50 defamation in a lawsuit, claiming that Amber Heard was the actual abuser and that her allegations are nothing but a hoax.
