A new audio recording has surfaced, which indicates that “Amber Heard” used to physically abuse “Johnny Depp”.
Hollywood star Johnny Depp and Amber Heard both had accused each other of domestic violence, and so far Amber Heard had been winning but looks like the tide has turned in favor of Captain Jack Sparrow as an audio recording has been leaked which reveals that Amber heard admitted to starting physical abuse on Johnny Depp.
Where did it go wrong?
Depp and Heard met on the set of their 2011 film Rum Diary and married in 2015. The couple got divorced in 2017, and the two years they spent together has described as toxic by both of them. Both the stars accused each other of physical violence and produced photos of the bruised face, arms to justify their claims. Heard got a restraining order against Depp in 2016.
In 2018 she wrote an op-ed in Washington Post, where she discussed the plight of women who were victims of domestic violence who speak up against it. In her article, she never mentioned Depp’s name, but her language made it very clear that she was referring it to him. Depp retaliated by filing a civil defamation suit against Heard, wherein he demanded 50 million dollars as damages.
The Victim and perpetrator
When the news about violence in the personal lives of the couple broke out, Depp was ridiculed and termed as an abuser. Depp decided to go public with his side of the story, but the move backfired, and he was further ridiculed. He was dropped from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise in which he stars as the titular character Captain Jack Sparrow. Leaked audio is very clear. It has Heard admitting that she hit him, and she loses it when she is angry. Furthermore, Audio also has Depp saying that he left because he does not want to fight anymore, and their relationship was a crime scene.
Justice for Johnny?
Heard’s lawyers have said that this leaked audio does not get Depp off the hook as it does not proves his innocence. Now #JusticeforJohnny is trending on twitter as an attempt by fans to heal Depp’s lost reputation. Most of the time, Divorce is the end of the feud. In this case, it looks.
