A leaked audio recording of Aquaman star Amber Heard sees the star saying she can’t promise to not getting physical with Johnny Depp again.
The leaked audio recording was obtained by The Daily Mail and according to their reporting is from a conversation, but it’s more like a fight, Heard and Depp had in 2015.
In the leaked audio, Heard admits to a number of physical attacks against Johnny Depp including the use of pots and pans.
In fact, at the end of the conversation Heard even admits she can’t promise to not getting physical with Depp again.
She says, “I can’t promise you that I’ll be perfect. I can’t promise you that I won’t get physical again. God I f****** sometimes get so mad I lose it.”
Towards the beginning of the leaked conversation, Heard justifies her violent behavior saying, “I did not start screaming until you had f****** all the shit – you poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn’t matter how friendly it is, it’s not cool.”
She then goes to admit to throwing pots and pans at Depp.
Depp tells Heard, “I’m not the one who throws pots and whatever the f****** else at me.”
Heard responds, “That’s different. That’s different. One does not negate the other. That’s irrelevant. That’s a complete non sequitur. Just because I’ve thrown pots and pans does not mean you cannot come and knock on my door.”
Heard then admits to using vases as well.
Depp tells her, “Vases and f******…”
Heard responds, “Just because there are vases does not mean that you come and knock on the door.”
Depp does admit to throwing an object at Heard as well, but says it was only after Heard was throwing cans at him.
Depp says, “The only time I ever threw anything at you was when you f****** threw the cans at me in Australia.”
Heard responded, “Why are you trying to justify who throws things based on whether or not you come knocking on the door? I don’t get why one informs the other.”
Later on in the conversation, Depp accuses Heard of hitting him.
Depp says, “And that you punched me in the f****** thing.”
Heard sarcastically responded, “You’re right! You figured it all out.”
Depp then responded, “In the face. And you said, no I f****** didn’t. What the f*** are you talking about? And I watched you lie.”
Heard then stated, “I didn’t punch you. I didn’t punch you, by the way.”
Depp states, “You punched me.”
Heard then responded, “I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched.”
Depp responded, “Don’t tell me what it feels like to be punched!”
Heard continued, “I know, you’ve been in a lot of fights, been around a long time, I know, I know. Yeah.”
Depp countered, “No! When you have a f****** closed fist.”
Heard then admitted to hitting Depp, “You didn’t get punched. You got hit. I’m sorry I hit you like this. But I did not punch you. But I did not f****** deck you. I f****** was hitting you.”
Depp then stated, “You can’t deck me.”
Later in the conversation, Heard admits to starting a physical fight, “I did start a physical fight.”
Heard would also mock Depp removing himself from her physical attacks.
“The big thing, the, you know what? You are admirable. Every single time, what, what’s your excuse, when there’s not a physical fight, what’s your excuse then? You’re still being admirable, right, by running away? And you can sit here and call me names, but you get a called a name and what do you do – ‘that’s the last insult!’ You’re a baby. You’re a hypocrite. You don’t do anything that you actually do. You expect from people what you can’t give them. If they do something a taste of it to you, you f****** lose it. But yet you dish it out.”
Depp made it clear he wanted nothing to do with a physical altercation in the leaked audio, “I’m not going be in a physical f****** altercation with you.” Although as seen above he did admit to throwing an object at her while they were in Australia.
The leaked audio comes in the midst of a contentious $50 million defamation lawsuit filed by Depp against Heard.
The lawsuit was filed in March 2019 after Heard wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post titled, “Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change.”
The lawsuit alleges that Heard “purported to write from the perspective of a ‘public figure representing domestic abuse’ and claimed that she ‘felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for or women who speak’ when she ‘spoke up against sexual violence.”
The lawsuit adds, “The op-ed depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”
The lawsuit also denied Heard’s allegations of abuse against Depp, “Mr. Depp never abused Ms. Heard. Her allegations against him were false when they were made in 2016. They were part of an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity for Ms. Heard and advance her career.”
The suit claims that Heard was the abuser and indicates that the Aquaman actress chopped off Depp’s finger among other violent acts.
Heard would counter accusing Depp of drug and alcohol abuse as well as physical assault describing him as “Johnny, ‘the Monster.'”
Heard’s friend Raquel Penningon would also describe a destroyed apartment:
“They have a big kitchen island in the middle of the kitchen and on there, there’s candles and like fruit and you know, glass — like jars and vases and things like that. And he just was hitting everything with the wine bottle, just smashing it all off. So their was fruit on the floor and baskets, you know, glass bottles and flowers.”
Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman responded to Heard and Pennington’s accusations.
“Yet 25 minutes after the horrific scene described by Ms. Heard and her two friends, two police officers, male and female, trained in domestic abuse and responding to a domestic abuse call observed and interviewed Ms. Heard twice and performed two security sweeps of the entire premises.”
He would tell The Blast that the officers did not see any signs of destruction despite the description of destruction by Heard and her friends.
What do you make of these new leaked audio tapes? Do you think Heard’s role as Mera in Aquaman could be in jeopardy?
