It was under oath that the actor’s former companion revealed to the audience the abuse she would have received: “During our arguments, I always tried to defend myself. In December 2014, I pushed back again and again. I always tried to get up but sometimes, well almost always, it made the situation worse and seemed to provoke him”.

Amber Heard also talks about how she was trying to make Johnny Depp realize that he was violent with her: “I was yelling at him, insulting him with awful words. I was so angry at what was going on. happening to me. It was all so unfair to me.” For more than a year, the actress says she tried not to fall into violence too, in response to the beatings she received. She says she threatened Johnny Depp to call in the police if he started hitting her again. “I tried to do everything. I even threatened to leave him. But nothing worked”.
