The now very public and very messy legal dispute between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has taken yet another turn for the worse. According to court reports, Heard now claims that she feared for her life following an incident in which Johnny allegedly 'smothered' her with a pillow.
She went on the record for the legal papers saying "I feared for my life", referring to an alleged incident in December 2015 for which she claims that Depp had been heavily drinking.
In a bid to support Heard's claims, a friend of the young actress took to backing up her comments yesterday: “I got to her apartment to find her with a cut and bruised lip, a swollen eye and a chunk of hair missing from the top of her head.
“This incident really stuck with me because she confided in me that day that she feared for her life after an intoxicated Johnny tried to suffocate her with a pillow.
“I have personally witnessed the aftermath of Johnny Depp’s violent and abusive behaviour towards her on many occasions.”
This information follows a recent claim made by Heard suggesting that Johnny had punched a wall in the midst of an argument, which would later result in him taking a month off from filming.
Neither Depp nor his legal representatives have responded to Heard's latest claims, and we don't suspect they will, given their recent statement that said: “Johnny will not respond to false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life.”
