Johnny Depp's Doctor Shocking Claims About Actor's Relationship With Amber Heard
Us Weekly, in its upcoming May 2, 2022 issue, reported that Dr. David Kipper remembered seeing broken glass strewn about and shared there was "blood around the home." In his testimony, the doctor made it clear that he never witnessed any physical abuse between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
However, Dr. Kipper shared texts from Johnny Depp in which the Murder on the Orient Express actor painted his former wife as verbally abusive. In a message to the doctor in July 2015, Johnny penned in part:
"[Amber is] somehow locked into this very unpleasant and belittling mode in the last three days. The accusations, the verbal abuse, and insults."
Johnny Depp, in the text, reportedly added that Amber Heard called him a "pathetic fraud" who was not capable of changing despite his efforts to get sober. On April 14, as per Us Weekly, Dr. Laurel Anderson told the court that the Aquaman actress initiated fights as a point of pride and that Johnny attempted to de-escalate conflicts more than Amber did.
An unnamed source close to Johnny Depp, reportedly, stated:
"Dr. Anderson testified that Amber had a jackhammer style of speaking, which left Johnny with 'no voice' -- and said she did not agree with Amber's perception that she was a victim of spousal abuse."
Kate James, Amber Heard's former personal assistant, also appeared in front of the court on April 14 in a pre-taped video deposition. The same Us Weekly insider noted:
"Kate said she never once saw or heard anything related to allegations of physical violence between the two and in fact suffered her own various forms of abuse at the hands of Amber."
The entertainment news outlet continued Kate James said the former wife of Johnny Depp once "spit in her face" when she made a salary demand, would scream at her, and send "barrages of abusive text messages day and night." She added Amber Heard's own mom had told her she was "terrified" of the London Fields actress, insisting she never saw Johnny mistreat her as he was "always completely passive."
The Us Weekly source said Johnny Depp and Amber Heard both used to hearing "embarrassing testimony" and feel it's "a small price to pay if they can clear their names and finally move on with their lives." Of the Black Mass actor, it went on to say:
"He'll fight to his last breath to show the world that amber set out to smear his good name and ruin his life. He's certain justice will prevail and show the world he's the real victim here."
As per the same magazine informant, the stakes are high for Amber Heard as well. It claimed:
"She's deeply stressed...If Amber loses, it'll quite likely mean financial ruin since she doesn't have a fraction of the money Johnny does. She's sad it's come to this but is staying positive and is looking forward to it all finally being over."

The Mortdecai actor vehemently denied having any information in relation to his forced termination as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Johnny Depp said:
“I would be a real simpleton to not think that there was an effect on my career based on Ms. Heard's words, whether they mentioned my name or not.”
The former husband of Amber Heard, during his time on the stand, also admitted he believed in the character "wholeheartedly." However, Johnny Depp revealed that "nothing on this earth" would not get him back and work with Disney on a Pirates o the Caribbean movie, saying:
"If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas. One day you're Cinderella so to speak and then in zero point six seconds you're Quasimodo. I didn't deserve that and nor did my children, nor did the people who had believed in me all these years.”
