Amber Heard ‘feared for her life’ after Johnny Depp ‘tried to suffocate her with a pillow’


Johnny Depp once attempted to smother his wife Amber Heard with a pillow, a friend of the actress has claimed, as the couple’s divorce becomes increasingly venomous.

Miss Heard, 30, filed for divorce from Mr Depp, 52, on May 23. And a friend of Miss Heard told The New York Post that the Oscar-nominated actor attacked her in December, resulting in the friend receiving a desperate text message calling for her help.

“I got to her apartment to find her with a cut and bruised lip, a swollen eye and a chunk of hair missing from the top of her head,” the friend recalled. “This incident really stuck with me because she confided in me that day that she feared for her life after an intoxicated Johnny tried to suffocate her with a pillow.”

She has accused him of domestic violence and appeared outside court sporting what seemed to be a large bruise on her face, and has taken out a restraining order. The friend told the paper that Mr Depp was frequently violent. “I have personally witnessed the aftermath of Johnny Depp’s violent and abusive behavior towards her on many occasions,” the confidante said.
