Amber Heard's future In The Aquaman series just got even bleaker after a new recording released allegedly exposed that she physically abused Johnny Depp.
Amber Heard's future with the Aquaman series is now in question after a recording was released of her allegedly physically abusing Johnny Depp. The recordings were from 2015 and authenticated by USA Today.
Heard's future with the series was first put in question early last year after Depp filed a lawsuit for $50 million over defamation and false allegations of domestic abuse. Heard later published an article an op-ed in The Washington Post painting herself as the victim. She then solidified her claim by providing pictures of herself with bruises all over her body. This got the DC and Warner Bros. execs off her back a bit, but now, with the release of the new recordings, it doesn't look too good for the Aquaman actress.
In the recording, Heard clearly admits to hitting Depp.
"I'm sorry that I didn't, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you're not punched," she said. "I don't know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you're fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you."
Depp then warns Heard if she doesn't stop physically abusing him then they will have to separate.
"I do not want to leave you. I do not want a divorce, I do not want you out of my life. I just want peace. If things get physical, we have to separate," he says.
Heard responded saying that she can't promise to "be perfect, I can't promise you I won't get physical again."
"God, I (expletive) sometimes get so mad I lose it," Heard says. "I can (expletive) promise you I can do everything to change."
After the recording was released Heard's attorney told Newsweek: "The fact that a woman fights or talks back does not mean that she has not been the subject of repeated domestic violence and abuse. It's a myth to say, as Mr. Depp apparently is implying, that if Ms. Heard slapped him, then she can't also be a victim. That is just not true."
Depp's attorney chimed in, telling USA Today that heard made up everything to cover up the fact that she physically abused Depp. The attorney said:
“The first confessional tape she made reveals a conversation any real abuse victim will recognize all too well. It exposes that Ms. Heard perpetrated serial violence against Mr. Depp, and then concocted an elaborate abuse hoax to cover it up. Ms. Heard gives a motive for her violence: Mr. Depp was always trying to 'split' to escape her abuse.”
With this new revelation, fans are petitioning to get Disney to rehire Depp as Jack Sparrow. Many believe that he was defamed wrongly by Heard and that he didn't deserve to lose his position in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise. They are now throwing Heard under the bus.
What do you think? Do you think Heard should be removed from the Aquaman series?
