Johnny Depp: Amber Heard Tried to Cut Off My Finger!

by at .

It's been over two years since Johnny Depp and Amber Heard finalized their divorce, and at the time of their split, the couple signed a non-disclosure agreement that appeared to be iron-clad.

But this marriage was so wildly dysfunctional that it simply refuses to stay buried.

First, Depp sued a British tabloid for alleging that he had assaulted Heard multiple times over the course of their relationship.

Not long after that suit was settled, Heard published an op-ed in the Washington Post in which she referred to herself as a domestic abuse survivor.

This prompted Depp to file a $50 million defamation lawsuit, which has once again re-opened some vicious old wounds.

“Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse, she is a perpetrator,” Depp's lawyers wrote in a filing made public earlier this month.

Now, new court documents obtained by Hollywood Life reveal shocking details of Depp's counterclaim.

“In one particularly gruesome episode that occurred only one month into their marriage,” Depp's attorneys write.

“Ms. Heard shattered the bones in the top of Mr. Depp’s right middle finger, almost completely cutting it off," the documents continue.

"Ms. Heard threw a glass vodka bottle at Mr. Depp – one of many projectiles that she launched at him in this and other instances.

"The bottle shattered as it came into contact with Mr. Depp’s hand, and the broken glass and impact severed and shattered Mr. Depp’s finger. Mr. Depp’s finger had to be surgically reattached.”

From there, Depp's lawyers argue that Heard engaged in self-harm for the purpose of blaming her injuries on Depp.

They claim that in her Washington Post piece, Heard “recounted a domestic violence incident that occurred between her and Mr. Depp on April 21, 2016, and reversed the roles, claiming that she was the victim when in truth she was the perpetrator.”

Depp's legal team says that Heard “disseminated false accounts of this incident, casting Mr. Depp as the perpetrator of his own injury.”

The attorneys go on to claim that Heard's “domestic abuse…continued unabated throughout their 15-month marriage. Ms. Heard threw dangerous objects at Mr. Depp, and also kicked and punched him with regularity.”

The filing also addresses an incident in which Heard claimed she was assaulted by Depp on the night of her 30th birthday.

The lawyers state Amber “recounted a domestic violence incident that occurred between her and Mr. Depp on April 21, 2016, and reversed the roles, claiming that she was the victim when in truth she was the perpetrator.”

From there, Depp's lawyers accuse Amber of “falsely [claiming] that Mr. Depp physically attacked her, threw glasses at her, and broke a champagne bottle in their penthouse after her thirtieth birthday celebration on April 21, 2016.”

The documents accuse Heard of punching Depp “twice in the face as he lay in bed reading,” as she was allegedly “angry with [him] because he was late to her birthday celebration.”

Depp's lawyers claim the actor was forced to “flee their penthouse to avoid further domestic violence at the hands of Ms. Heard.”

Legal experts predict that Heard and Depp's latest round of legal wrangling will eventually be settled out of court.

But something tells us it won't be the last time these two lock horns in a public setting.
