Remembering how she lived her relationship and marriage with Depp, Heard narrated different abuses apparently committed by the protagonist of the Pirates of the Caribbean saga throughout the time they were a couple.

Heard even claimed to have been sexually abused by Depp, who allegedly attacked her using a glass bottle.
I didn’t know if the bottle inside me was broken
Depp and Heard’s famous fight in New York
When talking about a famous argument that the actors had inside a hotel in New York, it was impossible not to mention that Depp lost part of a finger.

You are a whore and I hate you and I want to break up
Nobody likes you. You are getting fame because of me. I don’t feel in love with you anymore. You’re a whore
I get irrational when you’re making movies, I get jealous and fucking crazy and weird and we fight a lot more
I headbutted you in the fucking forehead. That doesn’t break a nose
Depp’s accusations against Heard

The only person with a drinking problem at any time in my life was me. The only person I have ever abused in my life is myself
Ms. Heard had taken my cigarette from the ashtray and had put it out in my face
