In the latest news concerned with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's messy divorce, Johnny Depp shared what he claims was his final text from Amber Heard. In court papers filed in Fairfax County, Virginia and obtained by Daily Mail, Depp also claims to have spoken with a number of Heard’s former partners about her alleged history of abuse (even detailing an incident between Heard and her ex-wife which resulted in the actress having to spend a night in jail).
Heard said in her text to Depp that the two could "do this or undue [sic] this as we see fit. You and I have the control. And love each other." Another text read: ‘I thought you filed [for divorce]. You said you were going to and said goodbye.· I’m sorry if I’ve hurt you. I have nothing but love for you.’

However, as Depp pointed out, that sentiment didn't last long. "When I did not accede to her demand for money, Ms. Heard publicly accused me of domestic violence, seeking and receiving a temporary restraining order against me when appearing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, May 27, 2016 with a first-ever-seen prominent bruise and cut on her face that she claimed resulted from being hit in the face by a cell phone thrown by me and further facial battering from “some appendage” of mine on the evening of May 21, 2016," wrote Depp in his declaration. Depp insisted that the "domestic violence allegation was untrue, and Ms. Heard’s purported injury was staged.’
Depp also spoke of an incident that happened ten years ago, which involved Heard and her then-wife. "Ms. Heard was arrested in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in 2009 after police officers observed her committing domestic violence against her then-wife Tasya Van Ree," wrote Depp. He continued to detail how Van Ree had asked police to arrest Heard, but that the prosecutor declined to charge her "only because neither she nor her victim were residents of King County, Washington, but not before Ms. Heard spent a night in jail and appeared before a judge in court."

The actor went on to admit that he had spoken to others who were involved in similar situations with Heard. "Several women who have been in a relationship with Ms. Heard have come forward to share their personal experiences of brutal violence and other abuse at the hands of Ms. Heard," revealed Depp. "My advisors have and continue to interview these victims, who remain deeply fearful of Ms. Heard, and to collect evidence from these victims."
The declaration also detailed why he believed Heard was acting this way, placing the blame on pills. "While mixing prescription amphetamines and non-prescription drugs with alcohol, Ms. Heard committed innumerable acts of domestic violence against me, often in the presence of third-party witnesses, which in some instances caused me serious bodily injury,’ stated Depp. "Multiple of these commissions of violence against me she has even admitted to under oath."
The way things are going now, it's looking like this he-said-she-said situation is going to be dragged on a little longer, with both parties continuing to make opposing claims. Who do you guys believe?
