Johnny Depp allegedly hit Amber Heard in the eye
The Aquaman actress claimed that she told Depp that he hit her in the eye before she started crying.
"And he approaches me and I don't know if he… if I'm feeling him approach, anticipate trying to get up, or if I helped him help me up, or if he just did it all by grabbing my hair, but for some reason, I had some aide in getting up off the couch by him grabbing my head mostly on my right side… the impact of which was significant and then he grabs my head, takes a fist full of my hair…" Amber Heard said.
At this point, the actress claimed that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor mocked him. Depp, allegedly, wanted to look at Heard's eye after the actress accused him of hitting it.
According to Heard, Depp also threatened to pull his ex-wife's hair back before yanking the actress's head.
"He's… I don't know… smacking my face or moving my face or… and he's got me by the hair…" Heard said while crying.

The interviewer asked the actress if she was standing up when Depp yanked her head and smacked her face, and she said yes. The interviewer also asked Heard if Depp pulled out any hair from her head. And the actress said that Depp was still holding on to her head at this time.
"And he said… I don't know if he's trying to grab my face or if he's hitting my face. I don't know what's happening. But he's yelling at me. He's screaming about… my… ‘let's see how hard I hit you.' And I'm screaming at the top of my lungs, ‘help, help, please help!' I guess I said ‘call 911' and screaming for help… just in case iO is on the phone, which I don't know because the phone is somewhere after hitting my face. I don't know where it ricocheted and bounced off to but it's on the floor. I can only hope she's on the line. But I know, I guess security is somewhere. And even though they never respond when I'm screaming help ever… I'm screaming ‘help' as loud as I can," Heard said.
