In a new leaked audio tape, the ‘Aquaman’ star can be heard apologizing to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor, ‘And I’m really sorry about hitting you with the door or hitting your head.’
AceShowbiz –Amber Heard admitted to smashing a door into Johnny Depp‘s head in new leaked recordings from their explosive court battle over alleged domestic violence.
In the new tape, obtained by the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, the actress, 33, admits to also “clocking” 56-year-old Depp in the jaw, saying: “I am so sorry… I can remember hitting you as a response to the door thing. And I’m really sorry about hitting you with the door or hitting your head. I did not mean to.”
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star’s lawyers played the recording to Heard in August, 2016, while she was giving a videotaped deposition in their bitter divorce trial.
“I’d just been hit in the head with a f**king corner of the door… And then I stood up and then you f**king clock me,” Depp says, as Heard responds, “I did not do this thing with the door … (but) I did mean to hit you.”
After listening to the audiotape, Heard repeatedly claims that she didn’t purposely slam the door into Depp’s face, adding: “I was trying to escape from a room where Johnny was attacking me… I was trying to get onto the other side of the door, attempting to close the door, and he was attempting to get in, despite my attempts to try to escape an assault.”
The “Aquaman” star continued, “I made it very clear I was sorry that the door hit him as I went into the room I was … attempting to escape into,” before insisting that the taped conversation, “misrepresents what actually happened, which is him trying to get into a room, which I was trying to get him out of.”
Depp is suing Heard for defamation in Virginia for an op-ed she penned for The Washington Post after their divorce, when she referred to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse”, and alluding to allegations she made against Depp in their explosive 2016 divorce – which were withdrawn after they reached a settlement.
Depp has insisted it was Heard that abused him, and is demanding damages in excess of $50 million.
