Amber Heard has renewed her allegations of domestic abuse against Johnny Depp in a new court filing in response to his $50million defamation lawsuit.
Heard describes a number of incidents when Depp alleged beat and choked her while he was under the influence of drugs and alcohol during their four-year relationship in the complaint obtained by The New York Post on Thursday.
Depp sued Heard last month over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in which she described being a victim of domestic abuse but did not mention the actor, whom she divorced after less than a year of marriage in May 2016.
The defamation suit accused Heard of implying that Depp was abusive toward her and labeled her claims ‘an elaborate hoax’.

Heard responded to Depp’s suit by laying out the actor’s alleged abuse in vivid detail.
She claims that her then-husband became ‘a totally different person, often delusional and violent’ when he was abusing drugs and alcohol.
‘We called that version of Johnny, “the Monster”,’ she wrote.
She said she first witnessed his alleged substance abuse about a year into their relationship, which began in 2012.
‘On some occasions, when Johnny simultaneously used both illegal narcotics and prescription medications I have had to get him medical attention,’ she wrote, according to The Post.
‘Whenever he was using, I worried for both of us.’
Addressing Depp’s repeated denials of her allegations, Heard wrote: ‘Johnny often would not remember his delusional and violent conduct after he came out of his drunk or medicated states.’
She added: ‘Because I loved Johnny, I had believed his multiple promises that he could and would get better. I was wrong.’

Heard specifically describes one morning in May 2014 when she and a visibly intoxicated Depp clutching a bottle of champagne boarded a private jet from Boston to Los Angeles.
She said that once they were on the flight, Depp ordered the flight attendants to give him an oxygen tank and continued to drink heavily.
‘Johnny’s handlers told me that he was upset that I was filming a movie with a romantic scene with James Franco the day before,’ wrote Heard, who was filming The Adderall Diaries with Franco at the time.
‘Soon, Johnny began to throw objects at me. Instead of reacting to his behavior, I simply moved seats. That didn’t stop him. He provocatively pushed a chair at me as I walked by, yelled at me, and taunted me by yelling out the name “James Franco”.’
She continued: ‘At some point, I stood up, and Johnny kicked me in the back, causing me to fall over. Johnny threw his boot at me while I was on the ground.
‘Johnny continued to scream obscenities until he went into the plane bathroom and passed out locked in the bathroom for the remainder of the flight.’
Heard claimed that Depp later apologized to her over text message, writing: ‘Once again, I find myself in a place of shame and regret. Of course, I am sorry. I really don’t know why or what happened. But I will never do it again.
‘My illness somehow crept up and grabbed me … I must get better . . . Again, I am so sorry, so sorry. … I love you and I feel so bad for letting you down.’
Heard also claimed that Depp’s assistant Stephen Deuters messaged her and claimed that the actor didn’t remember what he’d done, saying he was ‘appalled’ when he learned about the incident.
Deuters allegedly said: ‘When I told him he kicked you, he cried. He’s a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get.’
