In his ongoing libel test against The Sun , Johnny Depp is trying in order to prove he isn’ t the “ wife-beater” as he has been labeled in an op-ed heading.
And while it might not be easy to completely discharge himself in the public’ h eyes, as more and more dirty washing is aired it’ s i9000 becoming clear he isn’ t the only spouse exactly who should be worried about a status as a domestic abuser.
We’ ve currently heard Amber Noticed admit in order to hitting her ex-husband within leaked audio of their personal conversations and then try to contextualize and redefine those activities in video deposition. And naturally, we’ ve heard Ashton testifying on his own behalf, informing his version of occasions in which he was apparently struck and bullied.
But now for the first time, we now have a third party witness who really claims to have observed misuse in the marriage — in Amber’ s hands, which is.
Most recently place under the microscope were the particular events of March twenty three, 2015. The actress stated Johnny grabbed her by hair and hit the girl during a fight at their particular apartment in the Far eastern Columbia Building.
Sasha Wass , attorney for Sunlight parent business NGN , said the fight obtained intense after “ Skip Heard accused Mr Depp of having an affair with somebody called Rochelle . ” Apparently the lady found texts from this girl on his phone. Amber’ s i9000 claim is that security needed to be called to protect her plus her sister Whitney from Ashton.

However the written witness statement of Travis McGivern , a security guard who was operating at the residence on the day under consideration, was released on Friday, plus it pretty clearly supports Ashton.
McGivern, who worked for the Pirates of the Caribbean star for nearly 7 years, throughout the entire relationship, said Mr. Depp known as him to come to the residence and bring a doctor, one Debbie Lloyd .
Whenever he arrived he says this individual heard a “ spoken argument. ” Initially, he or she stood outside the door, providing the couple their personal privacy until he felt this necessary to intervene “ once the argument got louder and much more intense. ” After getting into he claims to have witnessed works of violence:
“ At some time approximately 30 to forty five minutes after my arrival, Microsoft Heard threw a full may of Red Bull that will hit Mr Depp in the back. ”
A complete can?? Geez. Not a far step in the glass bottle Johnny states she threw on an additional occasion, severing the tip associated with his finger.
McGivern explained his following move has been all about defense — of Mr. Depp:
“ After Ms Noticed threw the can associated with Red Bull, I identified that Ms Heard got access to a variety of other items which she could throw through her position. I as a result moved next to Mr Depp to ensure that he would not get strike by anything else. ”
He furthermore claims Amber SPAT upon Johnny:
“ At this point, Microsoft Heard was standing on the particular landing above Mr Depp and I witnessed her throw on Mr Depp previously mentioned. ”
Considering what she apparently did to their bed it might have been worse.
In all seriousness, McGivern referred to some really disturbing assault, saying:
“ Ms Noticed also tried to throw the girl purse at Mr Depp, but I deflected this mid-air. Approximately 10 minutes just before we left, I observed Ms Heard punch Mister Depp in the eye having a closed fist. ”
He says he or she waited until he noticed Amber and her cousin leave before exiting themself. In the entire time he or she was there, he claims, the claims by Emerald that Johnny had to be taken off of her or the girl sister were false:
“ Once again, this did not take place and at no point do Mr Depp hit Microsoft Heard. ”
Once Ms. Wass was able to question McGivern through video link, she actually admitted Heard hit Johnny! Nevertheless , she wanted to clarify it had been in defense of the girl sister, something the security safeguard denied:
“ She was your only one who was being in physical form aggressive. He (Depp) failed to touch Miss Heard or even her sister. ”
Ms. Wass replied to McGivern:
“ You are lying about your own description in order to assist Mister Depp who was extremely upset and violent on that will occasion. ”
Huh. If they are lying for Johnny, they are far from the only one.
Another witness statement launched Friday was that of in long run friend Isaac Baruch , who resided in the penthouse of the Far eastern Columbia, along with Amber’ s i9000 sister and friends Rocky Pennington and her boyfriend Josh Drew .
He claims Johnny informed him way back in 2013, at the beginning of their relationship, that will Amber was abusive:
“ Within the first year within 2013 of living in the particular Eastern, Mr Depp 1 day knocked on my doorway to visit. He said, ‘ l don’ t understand what to do. ’ t said, ‘ About what? ’ He said, ‘ The lady likes to argue and she loves to hit’. I said, ‘ what do you mean, physically? ’ He smiled and said, ‘ Number She just wants to claim about stuff all the time and she’ ll start striking me. ‘”
All the way in 2013. These two should not really have got married. He continued:
“ I was kind of surprised whenever he said this and am asked almost disbelievingly, ‘ you mean like lively hitting or hit striking? ’ He said, ‘ Yes, she argues after which she’ ll just begin punching me and really wants to fight. I’ ll attempt to stop her but the girl just keeps going to the stage where I just stop trying to prevent her and say OKAY, go ahead do your most severe, get it out of your system. ‘”
Yet he wasn’ t simply testifying about Amber apparently being abusive — yet about the abuse she states have suffered.
He says he saw the girl right after the infamous 2016 phone incident and that this individual saw Amber the next day, and he or she told him Johnny “ had come by the night prior to and got violent” which she was changing the particular locks. She told your pet what she eventually informed the public, that her then-husband “ hit her hard and threw a telephone at her. ”
However , he says he or she did not see the marks the girl showed in those notorious photos.

“ With lighting from the hallway and the sunshine that came in through the home windows from Penthouse 1, which usually filled the room and distribute into the hallway, it was quite simple for me to get an excellent look at of Ms Heard’ t face. I literally had been around 12 inches through her, inspecting her encounter and I did not see an individual mark or evidence of any kind of marks, bruising, or inflammation of any kind anywhere on her behalf face. She also certainly didn’ t seem to be putting on any makeup at this time associated with day that could cover any kind of marks or swelling. Her face looked in my opinion just as natural and regular as all the other times I’ ve seen it in the last three years while hanging out with each other around the apartments. ”
He procedes say he saw the girl multiple times throughout that 7 days and never saw any scars.
In fact , he or she called the photos of Amber’ s face — which includes a new one which you can see upon DailyMail. com — “ phoney baloney. ”
What do YOU think of these most recent witnesses for Johnny?? It’ s hard not to query the validity of someone upon Depp’ s payroll, yet how about Baruch’ s testament?
