During his interview with GQ magazine when asked about his ‘volatile’ marriage to Amber Heard, the actor said that the past three years have ‘felt like a perverse situation that was inﬂicted on me.’
He suddenly felt like people were looking at him differently because of what she alleged. He firmly denies ever ‘violently attacked’ her in their Los Angeles penthouse.
He has insisted that one day the truth ‘will come out’ and his reputation will be renewed.
In the interview he explained his side of the story:
‘It hurts. The thing that hurt me is being presented as something that you’re really as far away from as you could possibly get, you know? But to… To harm someone you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn’t, it couldn’t even sound like me.
‘So, initially, I just kept my mouth shut, you know? I knew it was going to stick on me and it would get weirder. Keep going, you know? Go nuts. I ain’t going to get into a pissing contest with someone about it. Spit out what you need to spit out and, you know, my attorneys will take care of the rest. I never went out and spoke about the sh*t.’
In a restraining order request, Heard alleged that Depp ‘violently attacked’ her in their Los Angeles penthouse apartment and threw a cellphone that struck her in the face with ‘extreme force’.
Photos later emerged of Heard with bruises on her face.
An attorney for Amber Heard told DailyMail.com ‘It is outrageous that GQ never spoke to any of the multiple witnesses to Mr. Depp’s physical abuse of Ms. Heard prior to publishing its article.
‘If GQ had done even a basic investigation into Mr. Depp’s claims, it would have quickly realized that his statements are entirely untrue. Mr. Depp has blatantly disregarded the parties’ confidentiality agreement and yet has refused to allow Ms. Heard to respond to his baseless allegations, despite repeated requests that she be allowed to do so.
‘Mr. Depp is shamefully continuing his psychological abuse of Ms. Heard, who has attempted to put a very painful part of her life firmly in her past. One need only look at the physical evidence to draw the proper conclusion.’
