Amber Heard Admits To Violently Hitting Johnny Depp, Contends It Was In “Self-Defense”

While testifying in court during their ongoing defamation battle, Amber Heard acknowledged hitting Johnny Depp many times while they were married. The Aquaman star, on the other hand, has maintained that her actions were in self-defense and that she did not attack Johnny as he claims. The two stars are currently involved in a multimillion-dollar defamation dispute in a Virginia court, which has been ongoing for the past month.

While testifying in court during their ongoing defamation battle, Amber Heard acknowledged hitting Johnny Depp many times while they were married. The Aquaman star, on the other hand, has maintained that her actions were in self-defense and that she did not attack Johnny as he claims. The two stars are currently involved in a multimillion-dollar defamation dispute in a Virginia court, which has been ongoing for the past month.

Johnny has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The actor claims that a piece written by his ex-wife for the Washington Post harmed his career. Amber did not name Johnny in the story, but she did say she was a victim of domestic violence. Johnny has also claimed that he was the one who suffered from Amber’s mistreatment. Amber has filed a $100 million countersuit against him. Both suits are being tried at the same time.

Amber entered the stand for the fourth day of her testimony on Wednesday. During her testimony, she described how Johnny would reportedly become aggressive at times, forcing her to ‘defend herself.’
 
She said, “There were many times I had to use my body to defend myself, and that included slapping wherever I could. If it meant I could get away, absolutely; or the difference between a sore face and a broken nose… I tried to defend myself when I could, but it was after years of not defending myself.”

Amber has claimed that she was a victim of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of Johnny. These charges have been refuted by Johnny. The continuing trial’s verdict is likely to be delivered on May 27. Amber and Johnny met ten years ago while filming The Rum Diary. After marrying in 2015, the two actors split less than two years later.
