Entertainment Tonight has obtained texts reportedly sent from Amber Heard to Johnny Depp's assistant Stephen Deuters in May 2014, way before the couple was even married. And oh man, it's not good. The texts allude to things Johnny Depp has allegedly done to her—maybe under the influence of something (Deuters mentions Depp not remembering things)—and then begged forgiveness for. Based on the texts, he seemingly did the same thing again months later—the typical cycle of abuse.
ET released 4 screenshots of texts between Deuters and Heard. The full transcript of those texts is below. Also, someone needs to charge their phone.
Stephen Deuters: Think he's just texted you. He's incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong. He wants to get better now. He's been very explicit about that this morning.
SD: Feel like we're at a critical juncture.
Amber Heard: Yes but I don't know how to be around him after what he did to me yesterday.
AH: I don't know if I can stay with him.
SD: He wants to see you so much. He's distraught.
AH: Don't worry about the flights. I'll be taking car [sic] of them myself. Thank you.
AH: Look, He thinks 'he doesn't deserve this.' Obviously he has no idea what he did or the extent that he did it. If someone was truly honest with him about how bad it really was he'd be appalled. The man johnny [cuts off]
AH: And definitely wouldn't say to me that he doesn't deserve it. I'm sad that the doesn't have a better way to really know the severity of his actions yesterday. Unfortunately for me, I remember in full detail everything that happened.
SD: He was appalled. When I told him he kicked you, he cried.
SD: It was disgusting. And he knows it.
SD: I wasn't with him when he sent u the 2nd txt. He read it to me and I said it was the wrong text to send. He then sent the 3rd one and sat and cried again after on the bed. He's a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get. He is so very sorry, as he should be.
AH: He's done this many times before. Tokyo, the island, London (remember that!?), and I always stay. Always believe he's going to get better… And then every 3 or so month [sic], I'm in the [cuts off]
ET released the images of the texts, but they also have not yet been able to verify the sender or recipient of the messages, or if they'd been edited in any way.
This is just the latest in a string of dramatic revelations since Heard filed for divorce last week. She asked for and received a domestic violence restraining order against Depp, and photos have been released of her face seemingly bruised from at least 2 separate occurrences. Depp has received support publicly from his ex-partner (and the mother of his children) French singer Vanessa Paradis, his 17-year-old daughter Lily-Rose, his self-proclaimed friend comedian Doug Stanhope (who claims Heard is blackmailing Depp), director Terry Gilliam (who implies that Amber Heard is just "acting"), and fellow actor Mickey Rourke (who says Depp "doesn't seem like a very violent man" to him). Heard has received support publicly from a few witnesses, and other people who've been abused.
Of course, people don't want to believe that Johnny "I've Been America's Crush Forever" Depp is abusive, but things are not looking good for him right now.
