The first time Depp allegedly hit her was after she laughed at a tattoo on his arm.

“I’ve never had it like this before. I just stared at him. I didn’t say anything or react,” she said. “I just stared at him. He slapped me hard again. I lost my balance and suddenly I realized that the worst thing that could happen to me could happen… It just hit me.”

“No one did anything. I was so embarrassed that he could kick me to the ground and no one would do anything about it,” she claimed.

Once again, Heard described Depp’s tantrum when he accused her of flirting with someone at the 2014 Met Gala in New York. In their hotel room after the event, the pair got into a physical altercation.

“Johnny pushed me and grabbed me by the wishbone. I think at that point I pushed him again. I remember he threw a bottle at me, she missed me, but she broke the chandelier,” she said.

“He pushed me down on the couch and at one point hit me in the face. I think this was the first time (I thought), ‘Is this a broken nose?’ I remember my nose was swollen, discolored and red.”
