Amber Heard describes the beating of Johnny Depp to prevent him & # 39; from pushing her sister down the stairs & # 39;

A video appeared from Amber Heard's claim in 2016 about her divorce from Johnny Depp and shows her how the only time she hit him was what she thought was to prevent him from attacking her sister.

The actress told how she and Depp had had one of their many fights in which he hit her when he approached her sister Whitney on a stopover between two flights of stairs in their home in March 2015 in Los Angeles.

She was afraid he would push her so she slapped him in the face, she said, adding that she & # 39; everything & # 39; had done to prevent her sister from causing damage.

In the video received by DailyMail.com on Friday, Heard turns red with emotion and weeping when she returns to the incident.

Amber Heard was pictured during her depot in 2016, where she described slapping Depp in the face in an attempt to stop him from hurting her sister, she said.

It starts with Depp's lawyers and her own bickering and Depp & # 39; s lawyer asking if she had ever hit him with a closed fist.

& # 39; Johnny touched me once and he hit me hard and repeatedly and I screamed.

& # 39; Security comes in and they do nothing about it and they are, he, makes this move when Jerry Judge & # 39; Boss & # 39; calls, or Sean, I can't remember who it was.

& # 39; All we had was a bit of divorce and my sister runs down the stairs. We are on a mezzanine between two staircases … & # 39;

Depp's lawyer then interrupted her and said: & Mrs. Heard, I have to interrupt you because I asked you a yes or no question. & # 39;

Heard's lawyer fought back: & # 39; Well, you can't. Then withdraw your question because it answers. & # 39;

As the lawyers argued, she looked around the room in silence.

Depp & # 39; s lawyer insisted: "I am asking for a yes or no answer."

Heard is looked at at her lawyer, out of camera, saying to her: & # 39; You don't have to answer it the way she wants you to answer it. & # 39;

The actress nodded and then continued with her description of the incident.

& # 39; He was about to push my sister down the stairs. She tried to break us. I protect myself over my little sister.

& # 39; When he laid his hands on her, I didn't know what I was doing. But I know that I jumped between the actions I saw that could lead to a deadly injury for my sister.

& # 39; She was at the top of a staircase. She has never hurt anyone in her life and she does not deserve to be pushed down a flight of stairs. It seemed that she was about to be.

& # 39; I would have done what someone who has a child or a sister would have done. I was defensive in her life.

& # 39; I saw her at the top of a flight of stairs and tried to interrupt a fight between him and me.

& # 39; I don't know which part of my body I put between me and her, but I would have done everything. I would have done everything to prevent her from being pushed down the stairs.

It is one of many cases of domestic violence she describes in legal documents filed on Friday to try and dismiss Depam's libel case against her.

The couple divorced in 2017 – two years after she registered and after she sought a restraining order from him.

Afterwards, Heard wrote an opinion for The Washington Post in which she described that she was a survivor of abuse.

She never mentioned Depp & # 39; s name in it, but he claims it is defamatory. He is asking $ 50 million from her, claiming he never put a finger on her.

Depp rejected the process as & # 39; new lies & # 39 ;.

His lawyer told People: & A hoax confronted with the reality of evidence requires new lies to maintain itself. Yesterday's request, made by a woman with a previous arrest and imprisonment for domestic violence, presented new lies from Amber Heard. & # 39;

She referred to Heard's arrest for an incident with her ex-wife, Tasya van Ree.

All charges against her were dropped and Van Ree said in 2016 that Heard had never abused her in her own country.
