This is so shocking. Amber Heard has come forward as an alleged victim of domestic violence from her husband, Johnny Depp, and she has submitted a photo of her bruised skin as evidence from May 21. Read on to see how Johnny allegedly caused the bruise on her face.
A terrifying picture of Amber Heard, 30, with huge bruises on her face has surfaced shortly after she filed a restraining order against her ex Johnny Depp, 52. Today, May 27, Amber claims that the photo was taken shortly after Johnny allegedly physically assaulted her with an iPhone. Get all of the details right here.
In court today, Amber has accused Johnny of using her phone as a weapon, TMZ reports. The actress claims that while she was on the phone with a friend, Johnny grabbed it and smashed it into her face as she screamed to her friend to “call the cops”. This photo was taken shortly after she was allegedly struck, and as you can see in the pic, the red bruising around Amber’s eye and cheek is shaped like a rectangle, and is roughly the size of an imprint that an iPhone would leave behind.
Along with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, Amber showed up in court today to ask for a temporary restraining order against Johnny. Most shocking of all is that Amber is claiming this alleged abuse has happened multiple times throughout their relationship since they were married in 2015.
Amber is also claiming that Johnny “offered her money to stay quiet” after he allegedly hit her, and now she’s filing for the restraining order on the grounds that there’s “an immediate threat of harm”. People reports that Johnny knew she was planning to file, and that he offered her money to keep her silent. Meanwhile, Johnny has been traveling out of town since Wednesday to promote his new movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass, which opens today. As a result, Johnny was represented by Laura Wassar during Amber’s court appearance.
