The 2016 video of an upset Johnny Depp slamming cabinets and throwing bottles in the kitchen while Amber Heard secretly films resurfaces on the internet.
It's almost four years now, but some things just don't get buried so easily. Just like the 2016 video showing Johnny Depp throwing a fit in the kitchen, slamming cabinet doors, and breaking things while Amber Heard secretly films.
In the video, you can see Depp seriously upset. He is cursing and lashing it out on Amber Heard.
It is not clear what the Pirates of The Caribbean actor is upset about, but you can hear Amber Heard trying to calm him down in the background.
Heard asks Depp what happened but the actor continues throwing and slamming things around.
Nothing happened this morning you know tha. I just woke up and you were so sweet and nice. We were not even fighting this morning. All I ever did was say sorry.
He poured another glass of wine and the video ended with Depp trying to swipe the camera from Heard.
According to TMZ, the video was shot months before the MAY 21 incident where Heard claims Depp hit her.
Depp's team has, however, claimed that the video is edited.
Since that video was released, a lot has happened between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
The estranged husband and wife's legal battle has been a public spectacle.
The two got married in 2015. Heard was then 28 while Depp is 51.
In 2016, Amber Heard files a divorce after 15 months of marriage due to "irreconcilable differences."
Heard put out an allegation of Depp's emotional, verbal, and physical abuse.
In a court document obtained by E! News, Amber wrote:
During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me. I endured excessive emotional, verbal, and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry hostile, humiliating, and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.
Photos of Amber Heard with bruises on her face started surfacing on the internet at this point. She also managed to get a restraining order against Depp.
In August 2016, the above video showing Depp throwing wine bottles and glasses in the kitchen was shared by TMZ. Heard says she has nothing to do with the leak.
Later that month, the two reached a $7 million divorce settlement which Heard reportedly donated to American Civil Liberties Union.
The next months were filled with back and forth court sanctions between the two.
Heard continued with her version of the abuse story and even wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post regarding her experience, though she did not mention Depp's name.
Today I published this op-ed in the Washington Post about the women who are channeling their rage about violence and inequality into political strength despite the price of coming forward.— Amber Heard (@realamberheard) December 19, 2018
From college campuses to Congress, we're balancing the scales.https://t.co/dBSwuJBtay
In March 2019, Depp files a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard over the op-ed. Depp claims Heard's allegations are just part of her plans to advance her career.
This time, the tides shifted as Depp also claimed that Heard violently abused him.
Pictures of Depp's severed finger and the ex-couples' private phone calls were leaked and the public is on rage.

First the Chris Brown case then Jussie Smollett case now Johnny Depp. Hopefully 2019 is the year we wait for proof before crucifying men on Twitter. Y’all called him a Woman bearer but whole time his wife chopped off his finger. Amber Heard should be in Jail! pic.twitter.com/gmItGEQ6qa— 6’7- Eleven Inches ➐ (@LebandzJames3) March 12, 2019
Heard's innocent act is crumbling down.
The whole drama surrounding Depp's failed marriage cost his career and his wellbeing. His beloved franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean is now expected to have a reboot with a different lead character.
Fans, however, rallied behind Depp. They're asking for Disney to halt the reboot plans for the Pirates of The Caribbean. They filed petitions to remove Heard on the Aquaman franchise. They continued to call for justice for Johnny.
Indeed! Johnny Depp deserves justice pic.twitter.com/9r1gXiuKEZ— Support Johnny Depp (@MyGrindelwald) May 6, 2020
My #SaturdayVibes are to defend all male domestic violence survivors, like #JohnnyDepp. Male domestic violence is as important as female domestic violence. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #MenToo https://t.co/he5FktuXi6— Natalia (@Natalia51618915) May 10, 2020
