In a newly-released audio recording, Amber Heard admits to hitting Johnny Depp.

The actors have repeatedly accused one another of abuse in the years since their divorce was finalized.

"I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched," Heard says at one point.

"I don’t know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you’re fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you."

The recording led to the surge of a #JusticeForJohnnyDepp hashtag, which became a top worldwide trending topic on Saturday.

Neither Heard nor Depp has publicly responded to the release of the recording.
