Amber Heard has admitted that she hit Johnny Depp multiple times when they were married while testifying in court during their ongoing defamation trial.

However, the Aquaman actor has maintained that her actions were in self-defence and she did not assault Johnny

The two actors are embroiled in a multimillion-dollar defamation suit, which is underway in a Virginia court since the last month

Johnny has sued his ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation in a $50 million suit. 

The actor has alleged that a piece his ex-wife wrote was harmful to his career. In the article, while Amber did not name Johnny, she said she was a survivor of domestic abuse. 

Johnny has also alleged that it was he, who was a victim of abuse, at Amber’s hands. Amber has countersued him for $100 million. 

Amber took the stand to resume her testimony for the fourth day. During her testimony, she talked about how, at times, Johnny would allegedly get violent

She said, “There are many times I had to use my body to defend myself, and that included slapping wherever I could. If it meant I could get away, absolutely, or the difference between a sore face and a broken nose… I tried to defend myself when I could, but it was after years of not defending myself.”

Amber has in turn alleged that she was indeed a victim of physical and sexual abuse at Johnny’s hands. 

The verdict of the ongoing trial is expected to be delivered on May 27.
