Amber Heard admits to smashing door into Johnny Depp's head and clocking him in jaw in new audio tape
'I'm sorry I hit you. I didn't mean to hit you but it was in response'
Amber Heard reportedly confesses to unintentionally smashing a door into Johnny Depp's head before "clocking" him in the jaw but told his lawyers that the recording "misrepresents what actually happened".
These statements are made in the latest audio recordings that have surfaced ahead of the two actors appearing in two different defamation lawsuits on different sides of the Atlantic.
The tape suggests that Depp was hit hard enough by the door to be knocked down.
According to a report in Daily Mail, the almost 3-minute long clip begins with Depp reportedly saying, "I opened the bathroom door when you were knocking on it. After a few times I opened and you know, you just kept coming, you just kept going, you just kept going, kept going. I tried to close the door three times, you know, please, please, just do you know. And then, wait and then, then I, I, I, I accidentally, I swear when I was trying to close the door, I guess it scraped your toes."
He added, "I didn't, you know, I didn't mean to do that. I don't know. I bent down and you either pushed or you kicked. I think you kicked the door open. I mean the door. Yeah, more open so that it would hit me and it hit me. It hit me in the f**king head."
In the recording, he is heard saying, "I then stood up, I don't even know if I said, I mean, I might've said like, what the f**k, you know, whatever. Cause I'd just been hit in the head with a f**king corner of the door." He then adds, "And then I stood up and then you f**king clock me."
Speaking about pushing the door and hurting Depp, Heard allegedly says in the recording, "I did not do anything to, I did not kick a door or push a door so that it would hit you. I did not, I swear that I don't even, that did not, it was not my intention. I think I remember when the door scraped my toes. I, um, I, I reacted, but this whole, the door thing, I, I remember I never did that. That wasn't on purpose. I might've done it on accident."
However, speaking of clocking the 'Pirates of Caribbean' actor, she reportedly said, "I did mean, I meant to hit you, and I did not do this thing with the door, I do remember, I did mean to hit you. Okay. I'm sorry I hit you. I didn't mean to hit you but it was in response. I just reacted in response to my foot. I just reacted and I'm sorry. It's below me."
The audio was never reseated to the public before, however, the Lassiter's had played it out for Heard during the former couple's 2016 divorce case deposition. She also claimed that the recording which was played "misrepresents what actually happened."
She also disputed whether it was a 'push' it a 'punch' and added, "I mean, he was just very dramatic about everything."
In the previous audio that was released, Heard had reportedly confessed to pelting Depp with pots, pans, and vases. She had then said, "You are such a baby. Grow the f**k up Johnny," because Depp was allegedly trying to flee a violent confrontation either her.
It is unclear as to where the most recent tape was recorded. However, it has been reported that both Depp and Heard had a habit of recording their argument as a form of DIY marriage guidance, where they would play the recording back later.
Depp is fighting the News Group Newspapers in London over an article published by The Sun in which he is being described as a "wife-beater". The actor claimed that this has allegedly damaged his image as a globally popular movie star. He will be appearing for a hearing of the same on March 23 and Heard is expected to give testimony for the same.
Depp has also filed a $50 million lawsuit against Washington Post op-ed where Heard shared her experiences as a domestic violence victim. While the article did not mention Depp by his name, the op-ed allegedly led to Depp losing his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
