Amber Heard filed a court petition on Friday which details the alleged verbal and physical abuse she claims Johnny Depp inflicted on her throughout their marriage. Heard was granted a temporary restraining order against her estranged ex.
“During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me,” Heard, 30, says. “I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.”
Heard has also stated that she believes the 52-year-old actor has issues with drugs and alcohol.
“Johnny has a long-held and widely-acknowledged public and private history of drug and alcohol abuse. He has a short fuse,” she states. “He is often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me as it has proven many times to be physically dangerous and/or life threatening to me. Johnny’s relationship with reality oscillates, depending upon his interaction with alcohol and drugs,” she continues. “As Johnny’s paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship, so has my awareness of his continued substance abuse.”
The abuse continued throughout their marriage with the latest incident allegedly occurring as recently as last Saturday. Heard says Depp threw a mobile phone at her, causing a bruise near her eye. She states they were merely having a “peaceful conversation” about his mother’s recent death, before he allegedly “began obsessing about something that was untrue and his demeanor changed dramatically. He was inebriated and high,” Heard claims
The incident seemed to escalate so quickly that Heard says Depp then threw the mobile phone directly at her face which caused the bruising.
“Johnny then grabbed the cell phone, wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher and threw the cell phone at me striking my cheek and eye with great force,” Heard claims. “He then forceably pulled back my hair as I attempted to stand from the sofa … Johnny continued screaming at me, pulling my hair, striking me and violently grabbing my face.”
Heard has said repeatedly that she fears for her life and is afraid Depp may come back and harm her again.
“I live in fear that Johnny will return to the residence unannounced to terrorize me, physically and emotionally,” she has said.
Johnny Depp in the meantime isn’t getting caught up in all the legal drama. The actor was busy touring with his band Hollywood Vampires for a performance at the Rock in Rio music festival in Lisbon, Portugal on Friday evening.
