There’s been much speculation recently over Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s marriage – namely, about the abuse claims.
However, text messages reportedly exchanged between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s assistant have emerged, and they may reveal the truth.
A source claims the messages, which detail an alleged assault by Depp, were sent between Heard and a man reported to be Depp’s assistant, Stephen Deuters, and are from May 2014, Entertainment Tonight reports.
The text exchange begins with a message from ‘Stephen’, who is apologising on behalf of a man, assumed to be Depp. It read: “Think he’s just texted you. He’s incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong. He wants to get better now. He’s been very explicit about that this morning. Feel like we’re at a critical juncture.”

Another, supposedly sent from Heard, reads: “Yes but I don’t know how to be around him after what he did to me yesterday. I don’t know if I can stay with him.”
Stephen purportedly answers: “He wants to see you so much. He’s distraught.”
Heard texts back:
Obviously he has no idea what he did or the extent that he did it. If someone was truly honest with him about how bad it really was, he’d be appalled.
I’m sad that he doesn’t have a better way to really know the severity of his actions yesterday. Unfortunately for me, I remember in full detail everything that happened.
Stephen allegedly reiterates that the man supposed to be Depp has no recollection of the events: “He was appalled. When I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it. He’s a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get. He is so very sorry, as he should be.”
He’s done this many times before. Tokyo, the island, London (remember that?!), and I always stay. Always believe he’s going to get better… And then every 3 or so months, I’m in the exact same position.
The release of these latest photos comes just days after Heard filed paperwork seeking a temporary restraining order, claiming in court papers that Depp ‘has been verbally and physically abusive’ for the ‘entirety’ of their relationship.
She had also described an attack in December, claiming ‘there was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life.’
Heard has also released a full statement to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) about the alleged domestic abuse she received from her estranged husband Depp.
Now, it seems that social media, who once accused Heard of gold-digging and blackmailing, is now changing tone:
Reading the texts between Amber Heard and Johnny Depps assistant literally makes me appalled, domestic abuse is not okay, so shocked

Photos, video, eye witnesses, multiple documents of proof, but it's still "blackmail" though, huh? https://t.co/yaM9H6yRKA

Photos, witnesses and now texts. How much more 'proof' does #AmberHeard need?

Some people clearly think the evidence of photos, texts and eyewitnesses pales in comparison to the evidence that Amber Heard has smiled.

If the allegations are true, they’re extremely serious.
And, while photos and evidence may seem to tell the truth, it may take a while before it’s established in court.
