Amber Heard’s most complicated story: abuse during her marriage to Johnny Depp

This Wednesday Aquaman’s lead actress, Amber Heardtestified in court against her ex-husband, Johnny Deep, stating that he physically abused her. The accusations range from a slap in the face for making fun of a tattoo whose handwriting was illegible to threats to kill her during an argument on a yacht while traveling to the Bahamas.

Since April 11 last year, there has been a stormy defamation lawsuit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. It all started with the fact that in 2016 the actress filed for divorce, in which Deep was accused of assault. After several negotiations, in early 2017, the actress withdrew the restraining order and issued a statement denying such allegations: “There was never any intent to cause physical or emotional harm.”

Although the relationship seemed to have improved, in 2018 The Washington Post published an article in which the actress admitted “public figure representing domestic violence”. It didn’t take much more to say or the name of the actor to get him suspended from all major productions, including canceling Deep’s contract with Pirates of the Caribbean.

After weeks of only Deep testifying, Hurd was in the dock this Wednesday in Fairfax, Virginia, USA. In this lawsuit, which Hurd a priori threatens for libel, both were accused of mutual insults. “I’m here because my husband is suing me for an article I wrote,” Hurd began.

Throughout her statement, which lasted over three hours, Hurd described several episodes in which she spoke about Depp as a violent man, unable to control his aggressiveness and having a serious drug problem..

Rough trip to the Bahamas

The biggest impression on the public was the story of a trip to the Bahamas, which they made together, just before he sold his yacht. They had a heated argument over his problems with alcohol and drugs. According to the actress, Depp criticized her for talking about her addiction with the children who accompanied them on the trip.

“Then he grabbed my neck, held me for a second and said that he could kill me and that I was a disgrace.”

“Then he grabbed my neck and held me for a second and said he could kill me and that I was a disgrace,” Hurd said, at one point before bursting into tears. Meanwhile, the actor in the gray suit remained imperturbable, who avoided eye contact with the actress at all costs.

The relationship began in 2012, and three years after they met on the set of The Rum Diary, they got married. However, their “magic” marriage, as Hurd herself notes, lasted only 15 months. Soon after, fights broke out when she made fun of one of the actor’s tattoos. “I asked him what it said, he said ‘Wine’ and he punched me three times in the face,” telling her, “You think that’s funny, bitch?”

“I wish I could leave, but I couldn’t”

According to Hurd, after this first physical and verbal abuse, there were other, more violent episodes in which many of Pirates of the Caribbean’s main characters were under the influence of drugs. “He proceeded to examine the oral cavity. He’s looking for his drugs, his cocaine,” she said through tears one night when Depp ripped off her clothes.

Last week, Depp ended his testimony by pointing out that he was the real victim and that Heard had come to break his finger in one of their conversations, which had to be repaired after hitting him with a bottle of vodka.

The actress responded with a counterclaim in which she claimed that the actor had promoted a smear campaign against her. $100 million In compensation.

This is not a trial for sexist violence, but many of the aspects that the lawyers reveal suggest otherwise.
