Depp filed the docs in the U.K., where he’s suing The Sun for defamation in connection with an article calling him “wife-beater.” The article referenced an altercation between Depp and Heard on May 21, 2016 at their downtown L.A. home. Amber says he threw a phone at her face and then pummeled her and she took photos of her injuries.
Depp’s new documents include witness statements, saying they saw Amber in the apartment building on May 21 and saw no red marks or bruising on her face. One witness says she didn’t see the mark until 6 days later.
Amber also took photos of broken glass in the apartment, claiming Johnny hurled glass and shattered it in the unit. One of the witnesses states in his declaration, “There was no smashed glass that I noticed in the apartment at the time.”
Amber has adamantly stuck by her version of events, and Johnny has implied she injured herself after the fact and took pictures.
He also cites in the documents 2 cops who responded on May 21 and gave 2 depositions stating they saw no injuries on Amber. The cops claim Amber said nothing had happened.
Again, the new filings were in connection with his defamation lawsuit against The Sun. Depp says “They must have made a positive decision to present a totally one-sided picture, leaving out my side of the story and pretending it either did not exist or was not worth considering.”
