Johnny Depp Punched, Kicked And Dragged Amber Heard By Hair During Three-Day Blackout, Attorney Claims

Amber Heard’s attorney has claimed Johnny Depp punched, kicked and dragged her by the hair.

The allegations come amid Depp’s $50 million (£38m) defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, centred on a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which Heard claimed she had become ‘a public figure representing domestic abuse’.

Depp’s attorneys have accused Heard of orchestrating an elaborate ‘hoax’ with the ‘clear implication’ he was an abuser. In 2020, the Pirates of the Caribbean star lost his libel case against The Sun because the judge ruled claims he was a ‘wife-beater’ to be ‘substantially true’.

Depp’s case kicked off in Virginia this week. During opening statements, Depp’s team accused Heard of being physically abusive and heard how he’d lock himself in the bathroom in order to get away from her, BuzzFeed News reports.

Heard’s team alleged a number of occasions where Depp got drunk and high before physically and sexually assaulting her.

Elaine Bredehoft, Heard’s attorney, also cited on alleged instance where the couple threw punches at one another after Heard confronted Depp for cheating.
