“I had worked so hard to try and make this relationship work. I went to therapy, I went to Al-Anon, I got help, and I read books. I did everything I could possibly do and it didn’t work. I was conflicted,” Heard said.

Amber’s claims about the phone have been denied by Johnny Depp during a separate trial in the UK.

According to Amber, she felt that if she stayed in the relationship, she “wouldn’t survive”, “So I made the decision to file for divorce. It was hard because I loved Johnny so much,” Heard said.

She went on to explain that violence was becoming normal in their relationship. “I was so scared it was gonna end really badly for me,” Heard said, adding, “I believe he would have taken it too far and I wouldn’t be here.”

Amber filed for divorce in August 2016 and the couple reached a settlement for 7 million dollars, which later Amber pledged to charities. However, after the actress published an op-ed in The Washington Post in 2018 in which she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse, Johnny Depp sued her alleging defamation and that she had ruined her career.
