Johnny Depp accused Amber Heard of punching him twice in the face back in 2016 and now The Blast has obtained the photo of his injuries, which is being used as part of his new lawsuit against his ex-wife.Depp claimed on the night of April 21, 2016, he was late for Heard’s 30th birthday dinner. When he returned home, Depp claimed Heard was upset and began criticizing him. He claims he was reading in bed when Heard became “aggressive and violent, punching him twice in the face.”
Depp says an employee of his then took the photo — which shows Depp with a shiner under his left eye — the next day.
As The Blast first reported, Johnny Depp sued Heard for defamation over an op-ed Heard wrote last year where she referred to herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Depp denies ever abusing Heard and is asking for $50 million in damages.
Johnny Depp also submitted 87 surveillance camera videos to the court, 17 depositions of witnesses (which includes police officers), and of course, the previous images. Prior to this latest development, the industry had ‘canceled’ Johnny Depp for assaulting Amber Heard.
Since this new information broke, a number of people have retracted their statements and are standing by the movie star.
