Never thought I’d read allegations like this against Johnny Depp…Read the exclusive report from TMZ below…
Heard showed up with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, armed with photos showing various bruises … she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage. We obtained this pic … showing Amber with a bruise around her eye, which she says Depp inflicted Saturday night. Heard claims the pic was taken shortly after she was allegedly struck.
She claims Depp smashed his iPhone on her face.
Amber claims during the alleged attack, Johnny shattered various objects in the apartment. She says she was on the phone with a friend during the fight, and when Johnny grabbed her phone she screamed to her friend, “Call the cops!” The friend called 911 and cops came to the residence.
Amber says when cops arrived Johnny had already fled, so they took a report.
We’re told cops told Amber they would find Johnny and arrest him if she gave a statement about the alleged violence, but she refused. Officers told her if she changed her mind she could call them.
Cops gave Amber this business card and told her to call if she wants to press charges. As far as we know, she has not gone back to the cops.
Heard claims after he allegedly hit her he offered her money to stay quiet, but instead she filed for divorce first thing Monday morning.
Amber says she has video of one of the beatings.
It’s interesting … she’s asking for a temporary restraining order claiming there’s an immediate threat of harm, but Depp has been out of town since Wednesday promoting his new movie. Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, appeared on his behalf.
TMZ broke the story … 3 days after Depp’s mom died, Amber filed for divorce. And one week after his mom died, she’s claiming domestic violence.
As for why Depp and his people are calling BS … first she never filed a police report, and she posted Instagram pics after the alleged beating and never showed any injury.
The judge just granted a temporary restraining order, requiring Johnny to stay 100 yards away from Amber, at least until a hearing next month. That’s not a real problem since Johnny is in Europe promoting his movie.
The judge also gave her the right to live in the family home. The judge rejected many other requests by Amber … notably, the judge said no to an order keeping Johnny away from at least one of their dogs, saying there was “an insufficient showing to protect the pet dog.” It’s unclear why the judge didn’t reference the second dog.
And Amber also got shut down when it came to awarding spousal support — she wanted $50k per month — and attorney’s fees. The judge also rejected her request for possession of their Range Rover and another request to force Johnny into anger management.
Amber Heard claims in legal docs … during their entire relationship Johnny Depp was verbally and physically abusive, and she lays part of the blame on drug and alcohol abuse. TMZ has obtained the legal docs Amber filed to support her claim that Johnny smashed an iPhone against her face Saturday night, which she claims triggered her move to file for divorce.
As we reported, cops came but she declined to file a report. Amber claims, before the alleged incident over the weekend — during her birthday party at home last month … Johnny showed up “inebriated and high.” She says after the guests left, they argued and he threw a magnum-sized bottle of champagne at the wall and a wine glass at her. She says he grabbed her by the shoulders and pushed her onto the bed. She also says he grabbed her by the hair and shoved her to the floor.
Amber says she didn’t see Johnny again for a month, until Saturday night. She says he was drunk and high again and they were talking about his mom’s passing the day before. She says he “suddenly began obsessing” about something, got mad, grabbed the phone, “wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher and threw the cell phone at me striking my cheek and eye.” She claims he also pulled her hair and struck her, then she says he grabbed a magnum-sized bottle of wine, chugged some and then used the bottle to break objects around the house.
Amber Heard had no evidence of any injuries when cops came to her home Saturday night after getting a 911 call … this according to LAPD law enforcement sources.
As we reported, when cops arrived Amber refused to file a police report. She now claimsJohnny hurled a cell phone at her face, badly bruising her eye, but our law enforcement sources say they saw no injury at all. In fact, we’re told she never alleged any brutality … just that they had an argument.
Our sources say she refused to offer any more information, so they left.
As we reported, sources connected with Johnny say Amber is lying … making up the domestic violence story. One of the things Johnny points to is Instagram … Amber was tagged in a pic showing she was partying with friends Sunday, the day after the alleged attack.
The LAPD says they had no reason to believe Johnny Depp struck Amber Heard with his phone when they were called to the couple’s apartment.
