Actor Johnny Depp is currently engaged in a bitter divorce battle with his estranged wife Amber Heard, and a new video tape obtained by TMZ won’t be doing him any favors. In the video, Depp verbally berates Heard while she apologizes for something unspecified. At one point, he also appears to smash a glass.
The video’s Friday release came just one day before Heard’s scheduled deposition, which takes place today in Los Angeles. As TMZ notes, it’s not likely that the video would be admissible in court. For one, sources close to Depp claim that it’s been “heavily edited” to cut out portions in which Heard can be seen smiling and joking around with Depp. These sources also tell TMZ that they believe the video is a setup.
It should be noted that the video was allegedly filmed months before the May 21 altercation in which Heard claims Depp hit her. In any case, Depp clearly appears a bit unhinged in the video. Watch below, via TMZ.
Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story suggested that Depp threw glass at Heard based on reports from other publications. As this is not evident in the video itself, we’ve amended the article.
