Amber Heard Allegedly Hit Depp At Yucca Valley Penthouse
Earlier this week, Depp’s security guard, Travis McGivern took the stand to testify in the ongoing trial. He had shocking revelations to make about Heard’s conduct towards Johnny Depp. McGivern alleged that in one instance, Heard struck Depp in the face and he had to intervene.
The guard further testified that the fights at the place escalated and claimed that on one occasion, Amber Heard threw a Red Bull can and a bag at Depp before spitting on him. He claimed that both parties engaged in “verbal vitriol”. McGivern recounted another incident when Heard punched Depp and stated that “At that point out of the corner of my eye I saw a fist and an arm come across my right shoulder, and I heard and saw a closed fist contact Mr. Depp in the left side of his face.” These details appear to substantiate Johnny Depp’s claims of abuse from Amber Heard. It is to be seen what the court decides on the whole matter.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Bitter Legal Battles
Depp and Heard had a short-lived marriage that ended in a very public and bitter divorce. There were allegations of abuse and violence from both sides. These allegations harmed their careers and brought a lot of bad press for them. Depp unsuccessfully sued a British newspaper in the UK for defamation.
Following that, he filed a fresh lawsuit claiming 50 million dollars in the US against Amber Heard for an op-ed that she penned for the Washington Post. Though the piece did not name Depp directly, the actor claimed that it hurt his career. The trial for the said lawsuit started in April 2022.
