Amber Heard claimed that Johnny Depp had another personality to which they both referred to as ‘the monster’ during the time they were in an alleged abusive relationship.
Now The Hollywood Reporter has found previously unreleased documents and testimony taken during Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s 2016 divorce. In the 400+ pages deposition transcript Heard refers to Depp’s alleged abuse as “the monster” and a detailed description of a domestic abuse incident on May 21, 2016, in Los Angeles
Amber told Johnny’s divorce attorney Blair Berk that: ‘Johnny and I refer to his other personality, the part of him that is present when he beats me up — we call that the monster and have called [that] the monster for many years,’ she stated. ‘I was petrified of the monster.’
In the transcript, Amber claims that Johnny threw his phone at her face “as hard as he could” before grabbing her by the hair and breaking “a lot of glass things that left glass on the floor.”
LAPD Officers Melissa Saenz and Tyler Hadden, who responded to the 911 call, both said to have not seen any broken glass or, as Ashley Cullins writes in the Hollywood Reporter, any “probable cause to believe a crime had been committed.”
“Depp recounted a different set of events leading up to that evening. The actor, in a July 2018 filing in The Sundefamation lawsuit, claimed Heard was “aggressive and violent” and punched him in the face twice the night of April 21, 2016, after he was late to her birthday dinner. The night of May 21, he said he went to the penthouse to retrieve some of his belongings and brought two of his security guards with him because he “was concerned about what Ms. Heard might do.”
Depp denied that he touched, hit, or threw a phone at Heard and that Heard’s injuries seen in the photographs were not caused by him.
