Amber Heard and Johnny Depp can be heard going at it yet again…
The two are the subject of a recently-unearthed bombshell: an explosive, violent audio recording obtained by DailyMail.com that details one of their major fights during which Depp was allegedly “hit in the head” with a bathroom door and knocked off his feet.
In it, both the 56-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star and his now-ex-wife can be heard protesting and arguing with each other amid the apparently violent encounter. At one point in the recording, Heard outright claims slamming the door in Depp’s face was an accident — but that she did mean to “clock” him in the face with a punch later in the altercation. Wow…
This is the first time the jaw-dropping tape has seen the light of day, though Depp’s lawyers reportedly played this very same tape during the 33-year-old actress’ deposition in the ex-couple’s bitter 2016 divorce case. How it leaked is unclear, but it’s yet another moment in a series of controversies and scandalous events that seem to endlessly surround both film stars.
It also isn’t clear exactly when this particular tape was recorded, other than clearly being sometime ahead of the couple’s split and eventual divorce. For what it’s worth, the pair apparently had a habit of consensually audio recording their arguments so as to play the tapes back later as a form of “DIY marriage guidance.” Yeah…
Anyways, here’s the full transcript of the audiotape, with both Johnny and Amber hashing out their positions in regards to the fateful door slam and Heard’s admitted “clocking” of her then-husband’s face (below):
JOHNNY DEPP: Probably just a s**tty lock. Anyway.
AMBER HEARD: I didn’t do that.
JD: I opened the bathroom door when you were knocking on it. After a few times I opened and you know, you just kept coming, you just kept going, you just kept going, kept going. I tried to close the door three times, you know, please, please just do you know.
JD: And then, wait and then, then I, I, I, I accidentally, I swear when I was trying to close the door, I guess it scraped your toes.
AH: It did.
JD: I didn’t, you know, I didn’t mean to do that. I don’t know. I bent down and you either pushed or you kicked. I think you kicked the door open. I mean the door. Yeah, more open so that it would hit me and it hit me.
AH: No I didn’t mean to, I didn’t know that was going to.
JD: Wait, wait. It hit me in the f**king head.
AH: But I did not mean to do that. I don’t know what you’re talking about.
JD: I was bent down behind the door.
AH: I did not do anything to, I did not kick a door or push a door so that it would hit you. I did not, I swear that I don’t even, that did not, it was not my intention. I think I remember when the door scraped my toes. I, um, I, I reacted, but this whole, the door thing, I, I remember I never did that. That wasn’t on purpose. I might’ve done it on accident.
JD: Okay. So let’s say that was an accident.
AH: Right. It was.
JD: I then stood up, I don’t even know if I said, I mean, I might’ve said like, what the f**k, you know, whatever. Cause I’d just been hit in the head with a f**king corner of the door.
AH: I’m so sorry. I did not, I’m sorry.
JD: And then I stood up and then you f**king clock me.
AH: I 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, nor erm.
JD: You didn’t mean to hit me in the head with the door but you meant to punch me in the jaw?
AH: I did mean, I meant to hit you, and I did not do this thing with the door, I do remember, I did mean to hit you.
JD: So that you didn’t mean?
AH: The door? No, god, no, I didn’t.
JD: But punching me in the jaw you did?
AH: Okay. I’m sorry I hit you. I didn’t mean to hit you but it was in response. I just reacted in response to my foot. I just reacted and I’m sorry. It’s below me.
JD: Your foot. That was why you punched me?
AH: Yeah, but I’m sorry, I’m sorry If I….
Of course, these two are the warring factions in a pair of ongoing defamation lawsuits — one in Virginia, and one in the United Kingdom.
What do U think about the presence — and contents — of this new recording, Perezcious readers? Is Heard in big trouble considering she’s admitting violence on tape, again?! Does it matter, or just a way to change public opinion outside of what the courts say??
