Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce battle is far from over. The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor was initially hated when the allegations hit the public radar. However, later on the audio of the Aquaman actress confessing to physical assault came forward and changed the entire dynamic. But did you know of the time when Depp alleged that his ex-wife used to be violent against her ex-partners too?
Yes, you heard that right! Johnny Depp once accused Amber Heard in the court of assaulting not just him, but her former partners too. It was all in reference to the 2009 incident when the Aquaman actress was arrested at the airport. Reportedly, Amber was booked for domestic violence by her ex-flame Tasya van Ree.
He further claimed that Amber lied about the incident under oath when she said that the arresting officer was homophobic. The actress also claimed that the charges were dropped under moments.
In a document received by Dailymail, Johnny Depp’s court statement read, “Several women who have been in a relationship with Ms. Heard have come forward to share their personal experiences of brutal violence and other abuse at the hands of Ms. Heard. My advisers have and continue to interview these victims, who remain deeply fearful of Ms. Heard and to collect evidence from these victims.”
The actor also claimed that Amber Heard does all of it under the influence of drugs. “While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms. Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of third-party witnesses, which in some instances caused me serious bodily injury. Multiple of these commissions of violence against me she has even admitted to under oath,” Johnny Depp said.
However, Amber Heard’s ex-flame Tasya van Ree later came to her rescue. She quashed all the domestic violence rumours and supported her. “I recount hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends.’ Charges were quickly dropped and she was released moments later,” said Tasya.
