Police refute Amber Heard’s abuse claims

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard at premiereAccording to the two Los Angeles Police Department officers who came to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp‘s home on May 21, there were no signs of any injuries on the actress.

The police officers had a meeting with superiors on the afternoon of May 31 and revealed they weren’t aware that Amber’s husband was Johnny Depp. She didn’t name him during their visit or on the 911 call and the only information they had was that there was a domestic dispute.

When Amber answered the door, she told them there had only been a verbal argument and denied that there was any physical harm or threats. She opened the door a crack initially, but the police insisted on coming inside to make sure she wasn’t being threatened. Once inside, they looked her over and saw no bruises, marks or swelling on any visible part of her body. They did not see her husband.

Sources connected to the actress claim Amber’s injuries became visible only later, but TMZ contacted two doctors for their expert opinions. The doctors both said if an iPhone had been thrown at Amber and hit her, there would have been immediate swelling and bruising, enough to be visible. Amber has also since claimed in legal documents that Johnny “pulled her hair, struck her and violently grabbed her face.” This week’s issue of People magazine shows a photo of Amber with a bruised eye and cut lip, which she also claims were caused by Johnny.

Amber, seen here with Johnny at The Danish Girl premiere last November, wants $50,000 a month in spousal support from Johnny. She reportedly earned $259,876 last year from her work in films, but after expenses, was left with only $51,461. Although court documents show she earns an average of $10,000 per month, she spends $43,700 a month. That includes $10,000 a month on rent, $10,000 on “entertainment, gifts and vacations,” $2,000 on clothes, $2,000 on groceries, $2,000 on “eating out,” $1,000 per month on utilities and $300 on laundry and cleaning. She also reported another $10,000 a month on “miscellaneous” costs such as pet supplies, pr and agent and a whopping $500 on charitable donations.

Hopefully Amber, who has roles in the upcoming big budget movies The Justice League Part One and Aquaman, is earning more for these films that her previous movies, because media reports say it’s looking doubtful that spousal support of $50,000 for a marriage that lasted only 15 months will be approved by a judge.

    Her income and the greedy demands should be ignored for the time being. We are in a society where this happens far too often.
    I was the victim of abuse, and the night the police finally came to my door, my husband was making threats to me and had thrown a long-sleeved shirt to hide the redness on my upper arm. If it had gone on longer, I wouldn’t be here to write this. I left later that week. I was one of the lucky ones. But it was a terrifying trip to get there, paved with a path of lies to family and friends.
    The day after the worst physical assault, I looked like I could have been in a car accident.
    Let’s not assume he is innocent because of his fame and how well-liked he is. Let’s assume SHE truly is the victim here.

    How is that possible. We have never heard of and abuse before. She will be making sustainable more with her two movies coming out next year. I really fid like off he bat.
    Johnny is an icon in movie cinema. I hope he wins

    Bet she’ll go back to women now.

  4. Adrienne • June 2, 2016 @ 12:12 PM

    Of course she will! Just look at that outfit. It screams ‘I like women and I wish I was with one now!’

  5. Yankee Doodle Dandy • June 2, 2016 @ 12:54 PM

    Who knows what’s really going on here. We can only wait and see what happens as things get sorted out. Hope nobody gets hurt in the meantime.

    Yes, domestic violence does go on too often and I feel for the true victims. However, in this case, I don’t feel for Amber. If Johnny Depp was a “violent” man, who beats his women, we would have heard of it before now. And considering his ex-partners and children who actually have lived with him year after year after year testify that he’s NOT a violent man, they are the ones to be believed, not Amber. She is going after the $$$ and that’s more than obvious- especially when she’s demanding $50K / month! She wants out of the marriage and is making wild, untruthful claims for some reason…maybe she wouldn’t get as much $ if she just asked for a divorce. Anyway, she should be ashamed of herself for claiming abuse, because there are legitimate victims out there and she making a mockery of those real victims. Especially when it will be proven in court that she is lying. Shame shame shame on Amber. Your pathetic acting skills have really proven themselves here because nobody believes you!

    Let’s remember, the justice system typically favors the perpetrator. Not saying he did it, just saying either way he’s gonna go on being rich, famous, beloved Johnny Depp.

    If Amber is making this up – and it looks like she is – then she deserves a good beating.

    We simply must assume he is innocent until proven otherwise.

    That so many women are victims of abuse is tragedy. But it is also true that far too many men are exploited by cynical women shamelessly making false accusations.

    Juan Gomeshi may be a hero, and he may treat women badly, but he was also innocent – much to the surprise of almost everyone given his apriori conviction by the media. A vital lesson learned.

    @Steve — Jian Ghomeshi is not “innocent,” the court just found him not guilty. There were too many women who came forward with claims of sexual assault (similar to the ongoing case with the ‘beloved’ Bill Cosby). He was also dismissed by the CBC and won’t be finding work there in the future.

    As to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, no one knows the real story. Time will tell.

  12. Maddie • June 2, 2016 @ 11:20 PM

    Ghomeshi wasn’t innocent, he even admitted that. But the airheads who testified were not sound witnesses. They lied, covered up the fact that all three went back to him after being abused, they did stupid things.. This is totally different. This chick is obviously lying to scam a very rich actor who had the misfortune to marry the wrong woman.

    Someone needs to learn how to live within their means. Millions of people do it every day with a hell of a lot less income.
    As for the photo with her “bruised eye”, anyone can create that just by excessively rubbing the area as one would when the eye is irritated. As for a cut lip, that can be caused by excessively licking the lips or even from wearing too much lip gloss/stick.
    This person thinks she has a meal ticket for life. Hopefully, the judge can see it what it’s for…a money grab. For her to try to have us believe that Depp has never in any of his prior relationships abused a woman in any way and all of a sudden is extremely abusive to her is ridiculous.
    She claims that the abuse was happening even before the marriage. In this day and age, are we to believe that she didn’t know better than to run the other way. Please. She saw a chance to try to cash in and is now trying to do just that.

    I have no idea what Johnny Depp is capable of doing in his private life. I do tend to think if he had/has violent tendencies they would have shown up in other relationships, and so that gives me pause, since no one seems to be able to find any witnesses to that. However, the question for me is what are her alleged injuries worth, even assuming they are real, and Depp did them to her. Let’s just for a moment presume the worst, Depp threw a cell phone at her, it hit her cheek and bruised it, and her hair was pulled, and her lip was injured. What is the value of that in a court case? If those types of injuries were caused by a car crash, you know what she’d be offered, maybe $1000. If she lost work due to it (after all her face is her resource), maybe a payment of a few thousand until it healed or could be covered with makeup. Depp’s personal wealth has nothing to do with the alleged assault.

    Her wanting a huge divorce settlement is not directly related to the alleged assault, that’s a matter for the divorce court to figure out, based upon any agreements between them. If she is claiming the alleged assault precipitated her need to have the divorce, that she is going to have to prove factually.

    Based upon the evidence to date, I wish her luck with that. Courts determine the value of injuries all the time, physical, emotional, property, business. As far as her alleged physical injuries, the payout wouldn’t even pay for one month of her take-out food budget.

  15. Jaime • June 10, 2016 @ 6:30 PM

    I don’t believe it. I have a sneaking suspicion that she has made these claims just so the divorce goes her way. I have no doubt there is a pre-nup and she would stand to get less without a good cause. She may even be using this to cover an affair.
