HOLLYWOOD- Actor Johnny Depp has denied abusing his former wife Amber Heard and argued that it was she who abused him and not vice versa.
In newly filed court documents, Depp said, “I have denied Ms Heard's allegations vehemently since she first made them in May 2016.”
After Heard accused Depp of abusing her, he filed a defamation case against the actress. Depp even accused Heard of having "painted-on bruises".
"She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim. While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of a third-party witness, which in some instances caused me serious bodily harm."
Depp and Heard started dating after meeting on the set of 2011 comedy The Rum Diary and got married in Los Angeles in February 2015.
