Johnny Depp Allegedly Punched a Wall During Argument with Amber Heard
Amid rumors that Heard once tried to blackmail her estranged husband, word has it that Depp punched a wall during an argument with the actress last year, causing him to delay production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the right hand cast the 52-year-old actor was seen in March 2015 was the result of a fight with Heard, 30. Sources told the publication that the couple were arguing while staying together in Australia for the shoot when Depp punched a wall and injured his hand, forcing him to fly back to the United States for medical treatment.
Heard filed for divorce earlier this month after Depp allegedly physically assaulted her during a heated argument. She was granted a temporary retraining order when she showed up to court with a bruise on her cheek, which she claimed was caused by Depp smashing an iPhone on her face.
Depp later released a statement refuting “the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life” and rumors surrounding the dissolution of his marriage to Heard. Vanessa Paradis, who was in a relationship with Depp for more than a decade and shares two children with the actor, has since defended her ex, writing, “In all these years I have known Johnny he has never been physically abusive with me and this looks nothing like the man I lived with for 14 wonderful years.”
