Johnny Depp details childhood abuse in the trial against Amber Heard

Johnny shared details of childhood abuse during his trial against Amber Heard. His testimony drew parallels between his parent’s relationship, and his dynamic with Amber Heard.

Johnny continued that he believed he could change his wife. He said, “I thought maybe I could bring her around. Because the Amber Heard that I knew for the first year, year and a half was not this, suddenly this opponent.”

Johnny explained that he and Amber became adversaries and explained, “ It wasn’t my girl; she had become my opponent.”

  1. It is becoming exceedingly clear to me that the problem is not Amber (or Vanessa for that matter, whom he (JD) equally threw under the bus on several occations) but rather Johnny himself. It seems that every time Depp has a problem with one of his women it is she who is a cunt, which, bitch or whatever defaming noun Mr. Depp is throwing at them.

  2. Johnny Depp was a busy actor with some personal problems he was battling.
    Amber Heard disliked his behavior and began to concoct some false evidence
    to take advantage of the situation for a jack pot profit.
    Amber Heard is an actor and she is now effectively demonstrating no such love
    for Mr. Depp on this very short marriage.
    Amber has demonstrated nothing but callous malicious accusations when no
    evidence of physical injuries was ever portrayed from a credible witness over
    a matter of days in question.
    Amber apparently attempted to fabricate a famous wealthy actor and attempted
    to create an atmosphere of brutality and fear for her life.

    Amber has demonstrated lack of empathy and as such could easily qualify as a
    dangerous calculating… psychopath!!!
