Johnny Depp’s lawyer: Amber Heard ‘used fake pictures’ in domestic abuse claim

Legal fight: Depp with Heard PICTURE: AP

JOHNNY DEPP has responded to claims by his ex-wife Amber Heard, suggesting she is using ‘fraudulent pictures’ to help her domestic abuse case against him.

The 55-year-old is suing the Aquaman actress for $50million (£38million) after she alleged he had grabbed her by the hair and thrashed her around and had threatened to attack her sister.

Heard, 32, admitted in a video she had struck the Pirates Of The Caribbean star to stop the alleged assault at their home.

Depp denies the claims and images purported to show damage done to their property in an alleged fight contain ‘no metadata’ to confirm when they were taken, said his lawyer Adam Waldman.

He alleges Heard ‘concocted new fake claims of abuse’ to obtain a restraining order against Depp in May 2016.

Mr Waldman also claims she committed acts of ‘serial violence’ against Depp. The couple divorced in 2017.
