It’s been a crazy year for Hollywood heavyweight Johnny Depp. First came the star’s rumble down under with Australian authorities. Depp and his then wife Amber Heard were accused of illegally bring their dogs into the country and even forging official customs documents.
Amber and Johnny were forced to make an awkward public apology wrapped inside a public service announcement. You can definitely see the two actors struggling to find to get through the horrible experience. See for yourself.
Unfortunately, things have only gotten worse for the former power couple. Late last week news circulated that Johnny’s mother had passed away on the very same day that Amber’s attorney officially filed for divorce. Now reports are coming out that Depp’s 15 month whirlwind marriage to Heard was decimated through a series of disturbing outburst of domestic violence. Below are pictures Amber claims were taken after one such attack.
Several text messages provided by Entertainment Today, claim to be from May 2014 and seem to show earlier instances of alleged violence before the couple were married. The following messages were sent from Depp’s personal assistant, a man named Stephen, to Heard.
Stephen: “Think he’s just texted you. He’s incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong,”
Stephen : “He wants to get better now. He’s been very explicit about that this morning. Feel like we’re at a critical juncture.”
Stephen: “He was appalled when I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it.”
Heard: “He’s done this many times before. Tokyo, the island, London (remember that?!), and I always stay. Always believe he’s going to get better…And then every three or so month [sic], I’m in the exact same position.“
As a fan of both Johnny and Amber I know they will both move on to do many more great things in film. However, the leaked text infer that Depp probably suffers from some issues with substance abuse, if so let’s hope Johnny gets the help he needs soon.
