BITTER DEPP COMES OUT SWINGING!
Accuses ex Amber of cutting off his finger & faking photo proof of domestic violence
MOVIE pirate Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard are hurling ugly charges of vicious physical attacks at each other — including his shocking claim that the Aquaman beauty cut off his finger with a bottle during a fit of fury!
The explosive back-and-forth comes in legal documents linked to Depp’s $50 million defamation suit against Heard.
He filed it in Virginia last year following her op-ed piece in the Washington Post, in which she recounted horrific abuse she suffered without naming the actor.
Now, Depp, 55, is battling back with charges that Heard, 33, was a pill-popping, boozing wildcat who repeatedly battered him
and severed his finger just a month after they tied the knot in February 2015 in a fight over a postnuptial pact.
“While I was in Australia filming … my then lawyer tried to discuss with Ms. Heard … that she sign a postnuptial agreement with me, she went berserk and began throwing bottles at me,” says Depp.
“The first bottle sailed past my head ... then she threw a large glass vodka bottle. The bottle struck the marble countertop where my hand was resting and exploded ... shattered the bone in my finger and entirely severed the tip of my finger.”
Depp, who produced photos of the injury, says he underwent three operations “to reconstruct my finger and contracted MRSA [bacteria that causes infection] three times.
“I feared that I would lose my finger, my arm and my life.”
Depp claims Heard changed her stories, first claiming he cut off his finger when punching a wall because he believed she was cheating with actor Billy Bob Thornton, which she and Thornton deny.
Now, he says she claims he severed the finger by smashing a plastic telephone “while wildly beating her in a ‘three day ordeal.’”
The actor also charges that Heard’s a schemer who “fabricated” injuries with “painted-on bruises” so she could get a restraining order against him in 2016.
Heard claimed she was hit under the eye by a cell phone Depp threw at her.
But he insists he can prove the injuries were faked because “witnesses and surveillance footage show she did not” have the wounds.
Meanwhile, in Heard’s court papers, the current galpal of Tesla kingpin Elon Musk describes Depp as a drugged-out, booze-guzzling “monster” who tortured her with “horrific” abuse during their marriage from 2015 to 2017.
She claims he ripped out clumps of her hair, destroyed her possessions and choked her so severely she believed she was going to die.
But Depp insists she’s the batterer, who “hit, punched, and kicked me ... threw ... heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls, and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me.”
He even claimed she pooped in his bed.
Heard’s legal eagle Eric George slammed Depp’s claims as “desperate attempts to revive his career by initiating baseless litigation.
“The evidence in this case is clear: Johnny Depp repeatedly beat Amber Heard.”
But Depp insists: “I never abused Ms. Heard or any other woman.”
