Amber Heard, allegedly, called her ex-husband Johnny Depp names and made disparaging comments about him when they were still dating.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s marriage ended in a bitter legal battle. Their divorce was finalized in 2017, but three years later, their legal battle continues.
Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp legal battle
Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of being abusive and violent during their marriage. The Sun published a report calling the Pirates of the Caribbean star “wife-beater.”
Depp fought back and sued the publication for the allegations. Meanwhile, Heard is supporting The Sun.
Heard’s disparaging comments against Depp
Amber Heard’s former personal assistant made a statement concerning Johnny Depp’s case. According to Kate James, she worked as Heard’s personal assistant from March 2012 to February 2015.
At the time, Heard was still dating Depp and James wasn’t aware of their relationship. In her recollection, Heard would call her then-boyfriend “old man” and made disparaging comments about him. She didn’t know it was Depp.
“At first, Amber didn’t tell me who Johnny was, and would speak in disparaging terms about him,” James said in her statement.
“She would say that she was ‘dating this old man’ and suchlike. Shen then disclosed that it was Johny Depp, and I met him shortly after that. My first impression of him was softly spoken and peaceful he was, almost a bit shy. He was very pleasant and courteous upon meeting me.”
Kate James declaration. I don't think any context is needed. It absolutely speaks for itself, and should be talked about far and wide.

Heard was allegedly abusive
In her deposition, James also shared how it was working with Amber Heard. Even if she worked for the actress for almost three years, their working relationship was far from perfect.
James claimed that Heard was “verbally and mentally abusive.” She recalled how Heard would scream at her over the smallest things and fly into blind rages where no one could reason with her.
“Everything that went wrong was always my fault,” James continued.
James also shared an incident when Heard missed a connecting flight around Christmas Day in 2012 and blamed her.
“She was screaming abuse at me for literally hours as though I had made it snow and caused the disruption to the flight,” she added.
Amber body-shamed Johnny
Amber Heard also body-shamed Johnny Depp, according to another witness.
Tara Roberts saw the exes argument in December 2015. She witnessed the actress berating Depp with increasing ferocity.
Roberts also overheard the Justice League star insulting The Rum Diary actor and calling him “washed up” and “fat.” Heard also said that Depp’s career was over and no one would hire him. She added that he would “die a lonely man.”
