Amber Heard's Sister Gives Bombshell Testimony About Johnny Depp's Alleged Violent Side

This article contains description of domestic abuse.

Johnny Depp's defamation case against Amber Heard has gotten even messier, as Heard's sister has made a shocking claim about the "Pirates of The Caribbean" star. Currently underway in a Virginia courthouse, the trial has been filled with a wide array of bizarre accusations leveled by both Depp and Heard. In addition to seeking $50 million for defamation from his ex-wife, Depp has also claimed that Heard allowed one of her friends to defecate in his bed — an incident that Heard has since blamed on her dog, per the New York Post.

For her part, Heard has also testified about the couple's tumultuous relationship and asserted that she was the victim of physical and sexual abuse. One incident Heard recalled while on the stand saw Depp allegedly assault the "Aquaman" actor during a private flight in 2014. Heard claimed that while multiple people were present during the fight, "no one said anything — no one did anything" to stop the attack, per Good Morning America. However, Heard's sister, who was present during one of the pair's volatile altercations, has now made a bombshell claim of her own about Depp.

Amber Heard's sister claims she was given NDA after fight with Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp's defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, has gotten even more contentious as Heard's sister has testified about a blowout fight she had with the actor. Heard's sister, Whitney Henriquez, took the stand on May 18 and recounted an incident where she claimed Depp physically assaulted both her and then Heard.

"I'm at the top of the stairs with my back to the stairs, and that's when Johnny runs up the stairs. I'm facing Amber, he comes up behind me, strikes me in the back," Henriquez testified in court, per People. "I hear Amber shout, 'Don't hit my f***ing sister!' She smacks him, lands one." At that point, Depp's security team began to approach them to intervene. "But by that time, Johnny had already grabbed Amber by the hair with one hand and was whacking her repeatedly in the face with the other as I was standing there," Henriquez continued. She went on to explain that Depp made her sign an NDA following the alleged altercation.

In addition to Henriquez's testimony, Heard's friend, Elizabeth Marz, also backed up the "London Fields" star's abuse claims. Marz claimed that Depp was often "combative," pointing to a 2016 fight with Heard, per the Daily Mail. Marz alleged that Depp aggressively rushed at her "swinging a magnum-sized bottle of wine."
