Johnny Depp Explains Why He Stayed with Amber Heard Despite Alleged Abuse


Johnny Depp has been candid about why he stayed with his ex-wife Amber Heard despite her alleged abuse.

Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. The trial started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.

Depp took to the stand to attempt to clear his name against Heard’s accusations that he was a domestic abuser.

The actor said he stayed in the ‘abusive’ relationship because he ‘didn’t want to fail’.

Depp testified:

“She has a need for violence.”

“why did i stay?…i suppose because my father stayed. I suppose because i’d been in that relationship with vanessa and that was lost and …i didn’t wanna fail”

“I thought maybe i could help her.”

Depp continued, saying that the Amber Heard he once knew was “not this…opponent”:

“The Amber Heard that I knew for the first year and a half was not this… opponent. It wasn’t my girl, she’d become my opponent. Everything I did… she didn’t accept it.”

“I stayed because, of course I didn’t want to fail. I didn’t want to hurt anyone, especially Miss Heard. I didn’t want to break her heart.
