Amber Heard suggested the public would not believe Johnny Depp if he claimed to be a victim of “domestic abuse,” too, because he’s “a man,” audio played for the court on Monday revealed.
Depp is suing Heard for more than $50 million over claims of defamation he says tanked his acting career.
“You can tell people it was a fair fight … see what the jury and judge think. Tell the world, Johnny, tell them — ‘Johnny Depp, I, Johnny Depp, a man, I’m a victim, too, of domestic violence … and it’s a fair fight,'” Heard said in the audio. “And see how many people believe or side with you.”

Audio also revealed Depp warning Heard that their argument could “turn into a bloodbath.”
“The next move, if I don’t walk away … it’s going to be a bloodbath, like it was on the island,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor said, the New York Post reported.
“You’ve taken everything. You want my blood, take it,” Depp said in other audio, suggesting Heard use a knife on him.
Heard also referenced in the audio a time Depp “beat the s***” out of her, as the actor “continued to deny ever hitting her and accused her of being the abuser,” the Post report noted.
In audio played last week, Heard admitting to “hitting” Depp.
“I didn’t punch you, by the way,” the actress said in the provided audio. “I’m sorry that I didn’t hit you across the face in a proper slap. But, I was hitting you. It was not punching you.”
“You’ve been in a lot of fights, you’ve been around a long time,” Heard continued. “You didn’t get punched. You got hit. I’m sorry I hit you like this, but I did not punch you. I did not f***ing deck you. I f***ing was hitting you. I don’t know what the motion of my actual hand was.”
“But you’re fine,” she told Depp. “I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you.”
“I’m not sitting here b****ing about, am I? You are. That’s the difference between me and you. You’re a f***ing baby,” Heard added. “You are such a baby! Grow the f*** up, Johnny.”
Before the trial started, Heard claimed in an Instagram post that an explosive op-ed she penned at The Washington Post about domestic violence that she had never mentioned her ex-husband by name.
“Johnny is suing me for an op-ed I wrote in The Washington Post, in which I recounted my experience of violence and domestic abuse,” the actress wrote. “I never named him, rather I wrote about the price women pay for speaking out against men in power.”
“I continue to pay that price,” Heard claimed, “but hopefully when this case concludes, I can move on and so can Johnny. I have always maintained a love for Johnny and it brings me great pain to have to live out the details of our past life together in front of the world.”
