Johnny Depp Claims Amber Heard Put A Cigarette Out On His Face During A Fight

Johnny Depp Claims Amber Heard Put A Cigarette Out On His Face During A Fight

Suing his ex-wife for defamation and false charges, Johnny Depp has shed more light on Amber Heard's alleged abusive behavior.

While it is up to the judge now to formally take a decision on the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard case, the 56-year-old actor is not backing down from revealing new information and submitting proofs. Depp is now claiming that during 'the' fight, instead of him abusing her, Amber physically abused him and even put a cigarette out on his face, as reported by People.



The statement comes in reply to the case against The Sun, which backed Amber's claims and presented Johnny as a 'wife-beater', defaming him to the world.

“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," Depp's attorney said in the statement.



He added further that's not all but there is way more evidence to come which will prove Depp innocent. “And there is more evidence to come. 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?” Amber's lawyer, however, has denied the claim and called it outrageous and untrue.



“This allegation is absurd, offensive and categorically untrue, " lawyer Eric George said in his statement obtained by People, calling Johnny's evidence fake.

"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." You can check some of the pictures Johnny submitted in the tweet below:



Initially, in the light of MeToo movement, the public supported Amber Heard but as Depp is presenting more and more proof in the court, people have begun siding with him.

Depp submitted an official statement to the court along with a plethora of evidence he and his legal team have been collecting over the years, including over 87 videos which reportedly show Amber abusing him, not the other way round. “I have denied Ms. Heard’s allegations vehemently since she first made them in May 2016 when she walked into court to obtain a temporary restraining order with painted-on bruises that witnesses and surveillance footage show she did not possess each day of the preceding week. I will continue to deny them for the rest of my life," Depp said.



"She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim. While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms. Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of a third-party witness, which in some instances caused me serious bodily harm," he added.



According to The Blast, the trial date for the defamation case is set for February 3, 2020, and will last for twelve days. Heard asked for the case's dismissal in the court but it looks like it will go to trial in Virginia, as Depp requested.

Amber's allegations against Johnny have been previously refuted by "two separate responding police officers, a litany of neutral third-party witnesses, and 87 newly obtained surveillance camera videos.”
