Johnny Depp divorce: Actor ‘repeatedly abused Amber Heard,’ claims his ‘assistant’

By Harriet Alexander - Thu Jun 02, 10:38 am

Samantha Spector, Miss Heard’s lawyer, issued a statement on Tuesday saying that her client “has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny.” The pair married 15 months ago, having met in 2009 on the set of The Rum Diary.

Miss Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Mr Depp, 52, on May 23. She has accused him of domestic violence and appeared outside court sporting what seemed to be a large bruise on her face, and has taken out a restraining order.

And Ms Spector rubbished Mr Depp’s friends’ insistence that it was in fact Miss Heard was violent to her husband.

“In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator’s playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain,” said Ms Spector.
