Amber Heard p**ped on Johnny Depp's penthouse bed and punched his face for being late for her birthday party
Depp claimed that the defecation was some sort of a sick prank Heard or her friends played
Johnny Depp referenced an instance in the defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in which the latter had apparently defecated on his penthouse bed after punching him repeatedly for being late to her birthday party on April 21, 2016.
According to a detailed official declaration that Depp submitted to the circuit court of Fairfax County, Virginia, the 'Aquaman' actress knew that Depp would be late for the party that she had thrown for her friends on her birthday because he had a late meeting. Even though Depp had informed Heard of his professional engagement prior to the party, he claimed, Heard violently attacked him for being late.
"Among other violent acts, Ms. Heard punched me repeatedly in the face as I lay in bed reading after the party, leaving me with an egg-shaped swelling under my left eye," the court documents said. As evidence, the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor submitted a photo of his then bruised face that was taken by his friend Sean Bett after he returned to his West Hollywood home.
The following morning, Depp claimed, that after he left the penthouse, either "Heard or one of her friends defecated in my bed as some sort of a sick prank before they left for Coachella together." Depp also claimed that their Estate Manager Kevin Murphy told him that Heard admitted to him that the feces was “just a harmless prank.”
He added that the defecation was an act that was the last straw in their marriage and he made up his mind to file for divorce, already having endured years of domestic abuse from Heard.
A month later, on May 21, Depp arrived at the penthouse to collect his things and inform Heard that he was filing for divorce. When he called Murphy on the phone in front of Heard and asked him to repeat what he had told him about her admission that the defecation on the bed was a prank, Heard allegedly "went berserk and started screaming and cursing at Mr. Murphy, prompting Mr. Murphy to ultimately hang up the phone."
On being informed by Depp about the impending divorce, Heard called up her friend, iO Tillett Wright, and they badgered and mocked Depp while denying the defecation incident - although there was photographic evidence of it - and condemned it as being a figment of his imagination.
Finally, an angry Depp took the phone and told Wright, “I don’t care, it’s over.” Then he claimed that he tossed the phone toward the sofa, where it landed about four feet away from Heard. Despite the device never touching her, when Depp turned to walk to the other side of the room, the actress loudly proclaimed that he had thrown the phone at her and hit her in the face, screaming, “Johnny stop hitting me.”
Depp wrote that before he could make sense of things, Heard's friend Raquel Pennington, who according to him was hiding in the penthouse somewhere waiting for the actress' signal, came rushing to the scene and yelled, “Don’t do it, stop it, leave her alone.”
"I was shocked and immediately denied this absurd allegation because I had neither thrown the phone at her, nor hit her, nor touched her, nor was I physically anywhere near her. Ms. Heard did not know that my two security guards were posted immediately outside the door of the penthouse," the declaration said.
He also claimed that one and a half hours after he had left the penthouse, Wright “called 911” claiming at the time that he had done so "instantaneously to save Amber’s life" after he heard Depp get violent on the phone call.
