The back and forth between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s surrogates in the media has already gotten pretty ugly since Heard filed for divorce last week. Rumors of abuse soon spread, followed by photographs, a restraining order, and a slew of defenders for Depp on social media. Doug Stanhope may have provided the most vocal defense for Depp in a guest column for The Wrap, but now Heard and her legal team seem to be striking back.
Heard has reportedly said that Depp’s injury from 2015 — the one that delayed Pirates of The Caribbean 5 filming in Australia — was not from a go-carting accident as previously reported, instead resulting from a fight the couple had that ended with Depp punching a wall. The story comes from an ET exclusive and seems to support some of the claims she made during her sworn statement in court this past Friday:
“I live in fear that Johnny will return to (our house) unannounced to terrorize me, physically and emotionally,” Heard wrote.
She detailed Depp’s history of drug and alcohol abuse, saying that she feared for her safety, claiming the “Edward Scissorhands” star has a short fuse, an “exceptionally scary” temper and suffers from paranoia.
“I am extremely afraid of Johnny and for my safety,” the actress said in her declaration for a restraining order. “Depending on his interaction with alcohol and drugs. Johnny has a long-held and widely-acknowledged public and private history of drug and alcohol abuse.”
