Amber Heard Admits Hitting Johnny Depp In An Audio Clip: 'I Did Start A Physical Fight'

This confession was consensually recorded during the couples therapy session in 2015. After this tape was obtained, people have questioned who the real victim was and started the #JusticeforJohnnyDepp which was soon trending.

In an exclusive and explosive audiotape obtained by Daily Mail, Aquaman actress Amber Heard admitted to 'hitting' Johnny Depp, and hurling pots, pans and vases at him. This occurred in 2015 during the course of their short-lived 18-month marriage, where she accused Depp of domestic abuse. However, with this new audio revelation, #JusticeforJohnnyDepp, started trending, and people questioned who the real victim was, reports The Jakarta Post.



According to Daily Mail, the tape (one of many) was recorded consensually during their two-hour therapy session, which the couple attended to solve their marital issues. 33-year-old Heard spoke about her violent streak. She told the 56-year-old Oscar-nominee Depp, "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. I don't know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you're fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you." Depp had admitted to pushing her. She then continued to take a jibe at him stating, "You are such a baby. Grow the f**k up Johnny. You poke an animal enough, it is eventually, it doesn't matter how friendly it is, it's not cool."



To which Depp replied, "I left last night. Honestly, I swear to you because I just couldn't take the idea of more physicality, more physical abuse on each other. Because had we continued it, it would have gotten f**king bad. And baby, I told you this once. I'm scared to death we are a f**king crime scene right now." Heard also stated that she could make no promises about getting violent again. "I can't promise you I won't get physical again. God I f**king sometimes get so mad I lose it." According to The Straits Times, he responded: "I love you and I want you to be my wife. And I wanna be a good husband. If I haven't been, I'll do everything I can to find out how to be a good husband." There was also one point in the tape where Amber can be heard saying: " I did start a physical fight." To which, Depp replied: "Yeah, you did. So I had to get the f**k out of there."



The couple who were married in 2015 split up in 2017 after Heard placed a restraining order against Depp after he allegedly threw a cellphone in her face. They reached a US$7 million divorce settlement in 2016. But it was in 2018 when Heard wrote an op-ed piece for The Washington Post where she spoke about being a domestic violence victim allegedly that Depp filed a civil defamation suit against her worth $50 million, which will be heard this year. He claimed that his reputation had been tarnished and resulted in him losing the role of the coveted Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.



The suit claims that she "hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me." In response, Heard submitted a court filing which details the torture she was subjected to at the hands of a "monster". It included pictures of scars, bruises, and clumps of hair.
