Amber Heard Admits to 'Hitting' Johnny Depp From 2015 Recording

Heard continues: "Scared for my life, I told Johnny, 'You are hurting me and cutting me.' Johnny ignored me, continuing to hit me with the back of one closed hand, and slamming a hard plastic phone against a wall with his other until it was smashed into smithereens".

The audio is from a two-hour therapy session in 2015 when the celebrity couple attempted to fix their toxic marriage.

In the ensuing argument Heard, who is a human rights activist and outspoken advocate for women's rights, admits that she "did start a physical fight".

To that Heard replied: "I can't promise that it will all be ideal. I can't promise I won't get physical again, I get so mad that I lose it". I did not punch you.

During the two-hour conversation, Heard - an advocate for women's rights and domestic violence survivors - tells Depp to "grow the f*ck up" and "just because I've thrown pots and pans does not mean you can not come and knock on my door".

But revelations in an audio-tape - provided to - seem to raise questions over who the victim really is, with the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp now trending. "If I haven't been, I'll do everything I can to find out how to be a good husband". "Babe, you're not punched, ' Heard tells Depp, attempting to downplay her outburst the previous evening". Depp paid Heard a divorce settlement of $7 million, which she donated to charity.

Johnny Depp's attorney Adam Waldman said the audio file containing Heard's confession exposes and destroys the physical abuse hoax. Over two years later, she wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post about how she "faced our culture's wrath" for speaking up against sexual violence.

"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's lawyers alleged that Heard was attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse, with the USA singer later suing Heard for defamation over a newspaper editorial. Wedded in 2015, the pair separated a year later, with Heard obtaining a restraining order along with a divorce.
