After one year of marriage, Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp. The couple’s 2017 split exploded into charges of domestic abuse, with the actress saying her famous hubby had battered her, and him vehemently denying her claims.
Eventually, Depp, 55, paid his ex a massive settlement to drop the case and turned recluse from the shame the scandal brought him.
“A lot of times in divorces, you see crazy behavior back and forth between the parties and their attorneys,” says attorney Danielle Mayoras in the teaser for REELZ’s new docuseries, Johnny Depp: Fortune Fight.
While Heard, 32, showed photos of her alleged bruises and battered face, Depp lined up witnesses who assured investigators the actor never laid a finger on the blonde beauty.
“It was actually alleged that Johnny wound up his arm like a baseball player and threw a cellphone at Amber, that he was grabbing her face violently, she had bruises on her eyes and on her cheeks, and that he was just very rough with her during their arguments,” says entertainment blogger Mariel Turner.
Johnny Depp: Fortune Fight airs Thursday, January 31 at 9 ET / PT on REELZ.
