Amber Heard admits in a voice recording to ‘hitting’ Johnny Depp and can be heard calling him a ‘f***ing baby’.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor launched a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post.
On Wednesday afternoon, Depp took to the stand to attempt to clear his name against Heard’s accusations that he was a domestic abuser.
The actor described a “staircase incident” where he claimed Heard “roundhouse” punched him in the cheek. He said:
“[Amber’s sister] stepped in front of amber, facing amber, to stop amber,”
A recording was then played of the couple arguing in which Heard admits to starting “a physical fight” with him. She is heard saying:
“I didn’t punch you…i was hitting you, it was not punching you. you didn’t get punched, you got hit…i did not f***ing deck you, i f***ing was hitting you,”
“BUt you’re fine, i did not hurt you…you’re a f***ing baby. you are such a baby, grow the f*** up, Johnny”
Depp added after the courtroom heard the recording:
“What was just played on these audio recordings was very much the tone, and the aggression, and the attitude, and the need for a fight from Ms. Heard,”
