2016, MAY 25
In 2016, Heard’s former wife Tasya van Ree in a clumsy attempt to protect Heard, tries to minimize the assault: van Ree says that the cop who arrested Heard appeared to be “homophobic.” The day after, officer Beverly Leonard is found to be a gay woman and a proud supporter of the LGBT Community. Mrs. Leonard writes on Facebook that Heard was arrested because she was witnessed assauting van Ree.
Amber Heard, a self proclaimed “immigration activist”, tries to defraud the US Department of Homeland Security in a written letter. Heard claims that her assistant Savannah McMillen from UK was just visiting her with a Tourist VISA. In 2019, Johnny Depp says he has some paychecks which prove that Savannah McMillen worked ILLEGALY for Amber Heard in USA.
Heard Files for Divorce from Depp, citing irreconcilable differences. She asks for $50.000 a month in spousal support, the penthouse and the range rover.
Amber Heard “wishes to work quickly towards a private and amicable resolution of all matters, but she will need Johnny’s immediate cooperation to do so.”
“If the requested Notice is not signed and the original executed form is not returned by May 27th, we will have no alternative but to arrange for Johnny to be personally served.”
This letter will be submitted as part of Depp’s exhibit.
Amber Heard texted Johnny Depp on May 25, 2016 aknowledging that he was the first willing to divorce.
Amber Heard says “sorry if I’ve hurt you”.
Amber Heard says that the “domestic violence thing” was just because she saw the police arriving and she DIDN’T KNOW WHY and what to do.
Amber Heard Accuses Depp of Abuse, obtains a temporary restraining order, and states she’s been abused for four years by Depp. She claimed Depp threw an iPhone at her on May 21st, photos are released showing a facial mark allegedly caused by the iPhone.
In some 2016 court documents that showed up online in 2018, Depp says that he was assauted by Heard the night of April 21st: Depp arrived late to Heard’s birthday party because of a business meeting and “After the guests left, Heard began criticising Depp for being late.” Heard “who had been drinking,became aggressive and violent towards Depp, punching him twice in the face.
After he left the apartment, according to Depp, Heard soiled the bed as a malicious prank. The housekeeper discovered excrement on the sheets the morning after. It’s understood that ‘strong photographic evidence’ links Heard to the reported incident
In some 2016 court documents that showed up online in 2018, veemently denies to abusing Heard on May 21, 2016. That night he went to the penthouse to collect belonging and he “brought his bodyguards with him because he was concerned about what Heard might do.”
In her declaration, Amber Heard and her key witnesses Raquel Pennington declared that they took a picture of Heard’s iPhone bruise in Raquel’s condo at the first floor of the penthouse (where Heard was rushed for safety) after the alleged assault on May 21st.
But the photo was DEFINITELY taken in Johnny and Amber’s bedroom at the 2nd floor, as brilliantly proved by “Incredibly Average” YouTube Channel.
Two police patrol who arrived that evening on May 21st state to People Magazine that they did not see any marks on her, nor anything in the home that was disturbed and broken.
Heard refused to fill a report.
Some documents featured in Depp’s lawsuit against The Sun and the lawsuit against Amber Heard in 2019 show some 2016’s witness accounts: an Amber’s friend declaration and some employees of the Eastern Columbia Building’s SWORN depositions where they TESTIFIED that they saw NO INJURIES on Heard after the alleged assault on May 21st 2016.
Amber Heard and her attorney tell two different stories to media about why Heard refused to fill a report on May 21st.
Amber Heard does not attend her deposition, her attorney Samantha Spector claims due to having a costume fitting for Justice League. This proved to be false when she is not in London for the fitting, but is seen driving away from a hotel in Los Angeles. The deposition is rescheduled.
Again for the second time, Amber Heard does not show for the rescheduled deposition and claims she’s at a friend’s (Raquel Pennington’s) engagement party.
Amber Heard withdraws Spousal Support Request. In court documents, Heard stated that her initial request was “being used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence.”
Officer Melissa Saenz’s deposition testified that Heard refused to give her name on May 21, 2016 so she didn’t realize who the woman was until weeks later. Saenz said Heard was crying but she did not see any marks, bruises, swelling or signs of injury on her face. The officer also testified that she inspected the apartment and saw no signs of shattered glass or broken items. Saenz said Heard repeatedly “shook her head” in response to questions and did not want to talk, and that she had no probable cause to believe a crime had been committed. Officer Tyler Hadden shared similar testimony.
In California, if police have cause to believe DV has occurred they are legally obliged to apprehend the suspect, even if the victim doesn’t want them to. There’s no need for a statement/report for this to happen.
3rd time deposition is on the schedule. Amber is 90 minutes late for her scheduled deposition at Wasser’s office in Los Angeles on August 6. According to court documents filed by the actor’s attorney on August 9, the actress “refused to testify despite repeated requests from Johnny’s counsel and instead sat with her lawyers, cried on the telephone, yelled, screamed and paced in a separate room.”
Depp lists 23 witnesses and 29 exhibits.
Heard lists 7 witnesses and 28 exhibits.
Heard and her close friend and witness Io Tilled Wright speak about a terrible assault (both in the testimony and online) that happened in December 2015. Oddly, they don’t give a date for it, although Wright says it happened the day before Heard’s interview at James Corden (December 16).
There are thousands videos and pictures of Heard in December 2015 and none of them shows marks. Besides, Heard presents no evidence from that month in her exhibit list: Johnny Depp does. He is the one who presented a photographic evidence from December 15 2015 in his exhibit list.
Thanks to Incredibly Average for noticing this.
Amber applies to withdraw the claims and signs the stipulation on August 11th, before sitting for a deposition.
Amber had avoided 3 earlier depos by that point. On august 13 Heard does her deposition because she was ordered to do so by the court: ideed she applied to withdraw the claims on August 11.
Heard states that she didn’t make a statement to the police because her lawyer advised her not to.
Private footage from Amber Heard’s exhibit list are leaked on TMZ.
A video that never shows Depp becoming physically abusive with Amber Heard: it never shows him insulting her, or throwing anything at her. He is just in a bad mood.
None of the video or photos leaked to the media ever showed Depp abusing Heard.
Depp’s attorney is the last person who signs the stipulation and dismissal of the restraining order request.
The morning of the 16th, a divorce settlement was reached: Amber Heard receives $7 million as that’s what she is entitled to under California divorce law.
Heard withdrew her claims and the case was dismissed with prejudice by the judge so she can’t refill it.
After Johnny donated part of the settlement directly to the two charities which are the ACLU and the CHLA, Heard suddenly threw a tantrum through her PR, called Depp out for wanting ‘tax deduction’, and demanded that he should donate $14 million instead, left aside the fact that Depp would get tax deduction either way whether he sent the money to her or donate to the charities directly, Heard also claims in her statement that the two charities were his ‘newfound’ charities in which he ‘has never previously supported’: yet Johnny recieved an award for his contribution from CHLA in 2006.
Johnny Depp sues a British tabloid for libel over a story calling the actor a “wife-beater”: Depp is suing for £200,000 pounds in addition to £10,528 in legal fees, as well damages to be assessed by the court, according to the documents. He is also asking for an injunction restraining the paper from “continuing to publish” allegations of spousal abuse.
“Ms. Heard has been previously arrested and spent the night in jail for domestic abuse (an arrest that was initially blamed on police homophobia, although the arresting officer later averred to being a gay rights activist). Ms. Heard has admitted to multiple violent attacks against Johnny Depp that caused serious injury. Eyewitness, photographic, and previous sworn testimony will be presented to the court.” -Adam Waldman
Depp has filed a lawsuit for defamation against his ex-wife Amber Heard over the op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post back in December. Depp says Heard “is not a victim of domestic abuse, she is a perpetrator.” The suit also denies that Depp ever abused Heard, and claims that her allegations were part of an “elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity”.

I saw her throughout the day of December 16, 2015, in good light, at close range, wearing no makeup. Throughout the day of December 16, 2015, I could see clearly that Amber Heard did not have any visible marks, bruises, cuts, or injuries to her face or any other part of her body. She appeared as a guest on the James Corden show that day.”
McMillen continued, “After the show, Ms. Heard said to me ‘can you believe I just did that show with two black eyes?’ Ms. Heard did not have any black eyes, and had been visibly uninjured throughout the day and at that moment. I later learned that Ms. Heard had accused Johnny Depp, in court filings and the media, of violently abusing her the previous night, December 15, 2015.”

Lies, contraddictions and truth surface the social media
From 2015 to 2016 many Amber Heard’s friend (including key witnesses Raquel Pennington and Elizabeth Liz Marz) lived in Depp’s penthouse (Eastern Building in Downtown LA) rent free: the worth of the luxury penthouse is about $12 million.
In his testimony, Depp says he wasn’t even aware of some people living and doing their business in the penthouse.
On May 22nd -the day after the alleged attack with the smartphone- while Heard decided to divorce, Heard’s key witnesses Raquel Pennington and Elizabeth Mars were at Los Angeles flea market having a “special day” and “much fun”, as they said on Instagram.
About May 21 alleged assault, Pennington claimed in her deposition that “Amber was crying, shaking and very afraid of Johnny”, just a few hours before attending the flea market.
Despite allegedly witnessing domestic violence and the attack on May 21, Raquel Pennington (Heard’s witness and best friend) liked Depp’s related pictures on Instagram on May 10 and May 24.
After claiming to be “extremely afraid of Johnny and for my safety” and that she was “petrified he will return at any moment to the residence, to which he has full access to”, Heard withdrawn the Restraining Order request and continued to live in Depp’s Penthouse. She lived there till she was forced to move out in January 2017, when the divorce was finalized.
On her personal Instagram (when it was private), Heard shared a photo of her in the penthouse in December 2016. Heard deleted the photo before going public.
Raquel Pennington’s mother share two drawings of Depp on Instagram. Raquel Pennington (Amber’s key witness and best friend) and Whitney Heard Amber’s sister) liked them.
Heard hires The Krim Group to restore her reputation. Indeed, this company “is a social impact consulting company specializing in celebrity engagement. Specifically, we help non-profits and brands secure celebrities for special events, personal appearances and cause marketing campaigns.” It’s been founded by Todd Krim who describes himself as a “Special Advisor to Celebrities.”
Heard’s close friend likes pictures of Depp on Instagram in January 30, 2018.

Io Tillet Wright, one of the people on Heard’s witnesses list as a long time and close friend, in summer 2018 publicly mocks the night of the alleged abuse, April 21, on Twitter. When called out, Wright comments on Instagram that he wasn’t in Los Angeles when actually, at the time, she posted some pictures located in Los Angeles (further, Wright deleted some pics, deleted his comment and changed the location of one post).
Thanks to Incredibly Average for the screenshots.
After telling everyone about the “nightmare” she went through in 2015/2016, in December 2018 Heard shares one pic of that period. It was taken by Greg Williams (Depp’s great friend who has always supported Depp) on the rooftop of the couple’s penthouse.
Heard’s close friend, Rami Sarabi, says that he miss the penthouse in the comments.
Johnny Depp’s friend, Doug Stanhope, says that Heard was “threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms.”
“We’d watched it build like this since before they were married. We’d watched her manipulate and f— with him for years. We didn’t say a word. To each other, yes, but never to him. When your friend is in an awful, abusive relationship — man or woman — and you risk weighing in that their counterpart is a demon, you know the odds are they will jump right back into the fire and then dump you from their life for being honest.”
“These recent allegations are outrageous.”
“He was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.”
“Johnny would never lay a hand on a woman and isn’t capable of hurting anyone.”
-Lori Anne Allison
“I created this video because like many, I’m tired of watching Amber Heard continue to use her accusations of Domestic Violence against Johnny Depp, even though she dropped the charges, to keep herself in the spotlight. I’m passionate about this as she is taking the attention away and making it more difficult for real domestic violence victims to speak out, especially when all she is teaching them is to drop the claim and demand money. ” -Autumn On Venus
“This video has been brought to you in light of Johnny Depp’s article that he did for GQ Britain. In which he explains that HE was the victim of abuse in his marriage to Amber Heard, In a statement released yesterday by his lawyer, Adam Waldman, he states that he has undeniable evidence and a sworn testimony to prove that Amber ADMITTED to abusing him in court documents, which he is going to bring to light in his upcoming court date against the law suit he filed against The Sun newspaper for Libel.” -Autumn On Venus
“This video doesn’t, directly, have much to do with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, but rather a friend and witness of Ambers. Basically, I wanted to share information that isn’t really being talked about.” -Incredibly Average
“This is a video focusing mainly on the night of May 21st, 2016. Like always, it is all rooted and backed by plenty of research and facts.” -Incredibly Average
