Johnny Depp is making an explosive allegation that his ex-wife Amber Heard "painted" bruises on her body she claimed were inflicted by Depp.
It's the latest bombshell in the feud between the warring exes. They divorced in 2016 after just 15 months of marriage.
Heard has claimed that Depp abused her, describing a violent incident in a divorce deposition. The morning after that alleged incident, she was mobbed by paparazzi when she went to court to get a restraining order and dark marks could be seen on her face.
However, in court papers filed Tuesday, Depp said Heard was faking it.
"She walked into court to obtain a temporary restraining order with painted-on bruises,” he said.
Depp denies ever abusing her and claimed that Heard was the abuser and that he has photos to prove it.
"She ... frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls, and paint thinner cans,” he alleged.
He said Heard once threw a vodka bottle at him, which severed his finger.
"The bottle struck the marble countertop where my hand was resting and exploded. ... The projectile’s impact shattered the bone in my finger and entirely severed the tip of my finger,” he claimed.
He was filming an installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” at the time and production was shut down so he could recover.
“I had to have 3 surgeries to reconstruct my finger. ... I feared that I would lose my finger, my arm, and my life,” he said.
Heard's attorney is denying the allegations, saying they are "desperate attempts by Mr. Depp to revive his career."
