A video has surfaced allegedly showing Johnny Depp throwing a wine glass at estranged wife Amber Heard.
Heard filed for divorce from actor Depp in May, just 15 months after the couple got married in February 2015. Court records filed by Heard cited “irreconcilable differences”, with a restraining order later granted against Depp, who Heard accuses of domestic violence.
TMZ recently obtained footage filmed by Heard that allegedly shows Depp throwing a wine glass at Heard during a heated argument. The video was allegedly shot “months before” Heard filed for divorce in May.
Sources close to Depp have responded by saying that the video is “heavily edited” and that Heard had “set up” the incident.
Depp and Heard got legally married in Los Angeles in a private ceremony in February 2015, before having a public wedding with guests on a private island in the Bahamas days later.
Court documents filed by Heard’s lawyers claim that Depp “violently attacked” the American actress in their penthouse apartment in May.
Documents also allege two other incidents of domestic violence, including one on Heard’s birthday where Depp is said to have thrown a magnum-sized bottle of champagne at the wall and a wine glass at his wife. He is then said to have grabbed her by the hair and shoved her to the floor.
In a deposition, Heard said: “During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me. I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.”
