Johnny Depp's Ex, Who Accused Him Of Physical Abuse, Admits Having Physically Struck Depp in Hidden-Mic Audio

#BelieveAllWomen.

Always. No questions.

And no documentary evidence proving that some may be lying will be permitted.

On Sunday, a taped conversation between Depp and Heard was posted online. In it, Heard admits to "slapping," "hitting," and throwing objects at him. Her biggest frustration with Depp appears to be that he tries to get away from her when she turns violent. Depp is heard saying, "There can be no physical violence," and Heard replies, "I can't promise I won't get physical again."

Heard spends a lot of time on the audio berating Depp for running away from her when they are fighting and not engaging with her when she's in a violent rage. At one point Depp says, "I'm not the one who f***ing throws f***ing pots and whatever the f*** else at me." Heard doesn't deny it and replies, "That's different...one does not negate the other. That's irrelevant. Just because I throw pots and pans does not mean you don't come and knock on the door," equating him walking away from a violent encounter to throwing pots at someone's head.

In another portion of the tape, Depp accuses Heard of "punching" him, and she objects that she did not "punch" him but only "hit" him, and not all hits are punches. Depp counters that her hand was closed.

"I'm sorry I didn't hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you. I wasn't punching you," she said. "You didn't get punched. You got hit...but you're fine. I did not hurt you."

"You got hit... but you're fine."

Bear in mind: It was largely based on this accusation by Heard that Johnny Depp was made all but unemployable in Hollywood.

Now, Depp had contributed to that -- he'd been picking movies that bombed at the box office, and there are reports of his constant drunkenness and refusal to come out of his trailer on the last Pirates movie wound up running up the budget of the film.

Plus, his performance seemed amateurish -- I guess the best you can get when you're feeding a drunk his lines through a hidden ear-piece.

But Johnny Depp has long been "troubled," as Hollywood euphemizes alcohol and drug addiction. And they had been willing to put up with that.

Until the Heard accusation.

Which was a lie.

Now, maybe it's a case of both parties hitting each other, so the charge is true (ish). This audio is almost certainly edited to avoid damaging disclosures about Depp.

But Heard is on tape admitting she hits Depp, and plans to do so again, and acknowledges that a "hit" might not have technically been an open-hand slap (and Depp says it was a closed fist), and Heard also opines that the hit was "okay" because Depp is "fine."

Obviously, this accusation is now highly dubious, and may be a case of preemptively accusing your domestic partner of your own crimes so that when the judge hears both sides accusing each other, he just ignores it all. (Or just, as usual, decides to #BelieveAllWomen and/or Believe the First Accuser.)
