It was February 3, 2015 when Johnny Depp And Amber Heard they decided to marry one civil ceremony in his house, a West Hollywood, with accompanying weekend celebrations on Little Hall’s Pond Cay beach, at Bahamas. A bond that was born at the beginning 2012thanks to meeting on the set of The Rum Diary, and which ended in May 2016, with a divorce filing from the actress after only 15 months of marriage.
The relationship between the two stars, however, she broke off just level sentimental: in the last six years, in fact, it has sadly continued in the courtroomsbetween accusations of domestic violence and adultery, all seasoned with details in splatter mode. A story that appeared immediately controversialwith her presenting herself to the authorities showing the swollen face and getting a restraining order against her ex-husband.
Depp, in turn, accused her of having painted the bruises on his face and, a year ago, also that I didn’t donate to charity – as agreed – i 7 million collected from separation. Yes, because in 2017 there seemed to be i assumptions for a respite thanks to a divorce clause which forbade both sides to speak in a negative way of marriage. But nothing, the following year it broke out a new pandemonium.
Heard, in fact, wrote an editorial on Washington Post in which – albeit without ever mentioning Depp – he defines himself as «a public figure he represented domestic violence». The plaintiff – who in the meantime has lost the case with the Sun who labeled it as «a man who beats his wife» – he therefore decided to sue for defamation the ex-partner, with the hope maybe – analyzes variety – to clean up your own image.
The serious accusations that have been brought against him, in fact, have had obvious repercussions on his professional career. “I wanted to say a proper goodbye to Jack Sparrow», he said in one of the last hearings. Featuring evidence they brought to light disturbing details: from the video shot secretly by the actress in which picks up his partner which he fights against a kitchen cabinetto him showing a severed finger.
According to the reconstruction of the lawyers, she would have been a get him injured throwing him a bottle during a stay in Australia. “It is necessary for me to leave to avoid a bloodbath as happened on the island», says one of the last audios played in the classroom. The voice is Depp’s: “It’s not worth it, why be unhappy can we just have a little understanding». What he meant is not clear.
Much more explicit text messages sent to Paul Bettany in which he claims to want «drown and burn» Amber Heard: «All of this was never intended and meant to be accomplished», the star defended himself. “I’m ashamed to have it widespreadbut since they are private texts they go contextualised. This is a direct quote from Monty Python and the witch-burning sketch,” Depp added, “is alone surreal humor».
She claims to have been attacked and even «penetrated with a bottle of liquor», he reiterates that he hasn’t never hit a woman in his life: “The victim is me». At the court of Fairfax the very difficult task of tracing the contours of the truth, to bring down the credits on the Depp-Heard relationship, which from an exciting love story has turned – for several years now – into a bitter judicial show.
