As Hollywood actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s divorce becomes increasingly toxic, new claims say that the Pirates of the Caribbean star had earlier tried to smother Heard with a pillow.
In an interview, a source informed that the 30-year-old actress texted her during an alleged attack last December, and the concerned friend rushed to the couple’s LA pad, where she claims she discovered Heard battered and bruised, reports News.com.au.
“I got to her apartment to find her with a cut and bruised lip, a swollen eye and a chunk of hair missing from the top of her head,” the friend recalled.
“This incident really stuck with me because she confided in me that day that she feared for her life after an intoxicated Johnny tried to suffocate her with a pillow,” she added.
Samantha Spector, Miss Heard’s lawyer, issued a statement on Tuesday saying that her client “has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny.” The pair married 15 months ago, having met in 2009 on the set of The Rum Diary.
Depp’s lawyers have denied the domestic violence claims.
