Johnny Depp has claimed that his ex-wife Amber Heard put a cigarette out’ on his cheek, and threw a bottle at him in an alleged fight that sent him to the hospital with a cigarette burn on his face.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star has made allegations against the actress as part of a libel case, he has accused her of March 2015 fight, when Amber allegedly became violent and verbally abusive.
Johnny Depp said, during a fight she threw a glass bottle at him which severed his finger after it smashed on the marble bar top.
According to the statements, Depp tried to avoid Heard ‘by going to the downstairs bar in the house. She followed him, screaming at him abusively.’
Depp claims ‘he poured himself a vodka and drank it,’ when Heard threw a bottle at him and missed.
He claims Heard had thrown the second bottle at him, which severed Depp’s finger.
‘Ms. Heard then put a cigarette out on [Depp’s] right cheek,’ the document says, according to The Blast.
The actor’s attorney Adam Waldman said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE: ‘Today we replied in court to the Sun’s cut and paste ‘defense’ of Amber Heard’s latest abuse hoaxes.’
‘And we detailed more evidence of Amber Heard’s vicious violence against Mr. Depp, who was the actual domestic violence victim in the relationship.’
‘There is more evidence to come,’ the statement continued. ‘Yet Ms. Heard remains propped up by hoax-enablers, including Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid the Sun. Does the #metoo movement care about male victims too?’
Heard’s attorney Eric George hit back that the ‘allegation is absurd, offensive and categorically untrue.’
‘This photograph proves nothing – apart from the fact that Johnny Depp is desperate to throw out any outlandish allegation to deflect attention from his physical and ongoing psychological abuse of Amber Heard.’
In 2018, Depp accused Heard of defamation over a Washington Post op-ed where the actress wrote about her experience with domestic abuse, an account which Depp claims implied he was the perpetrator.
