Amber Heard Suffered 'Years of Physical and Psychological Abuse' From Depp

Amber Heard (photosAmber Heard photos)'s lawyers are firing back at Johnny Depp and his team for discrediting claims that she was abused by the actor.

Heard, who filed for divorce from Depp, was granted a restraining order against him earlier this week.

Her lawyers say Heard has now also given a statement to LAPD: "As the result of Amber's decision to decline giving an initial statement to the LAPD, her silence has been used against her by Johnny's team. Amber did not provide a statement to the LAPD in an attempt to protect her privacy and Johnny’s career."

"Johnny's team has forced Amber to give a statement to the LAPD to set the record straight as to the true facts, as she cannot continue to leave herself open to the vicious false and malicious allegations that have infected the media."

"Amber has suffered through years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of Johnny."

"In domestic violence cases, it is not unusual for the perpetrator's playbook to include miscasting the victim as the villain," they continue. "In reality, Amber acted no differently than many victims of domestic violence, who think first of the harm that might come to the abuser, rather than the abuse they have already suffered."

"Amber can no longer endure the relentless attacks and outright lies launched against her character in the Court of Public Opinion since the tragic events of May 21st. With her statement Amber hopes to give the LAPD the opportunity to conduct an accurate and complete investigation into the events of that evening and before."

"If that occurs, and the truth is revealed, there is no doubt that Amber's claims will be substantiated beyond any doubt, and hopefully Johnny will get the help that he so

The lawyers say they attempted to keep the matter private but Depp's team has forced their hand.

"From the beginning it has been Amber's desire to keep this matter as private as possible, even though LAPD officers responded to a 911 call made by a third-party."

"The LAPD officers viewed not only the disarray that Johnny had caused in the apartment but also the physical injuries to Amber’s face. We filed the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage at the very end of the day on Monday May 23rd and we did not serve Johnny with the Petition at the premiere of Alice Through the Looking Glass that evening."

"We sent a letter to Johnny's counsel team the next morning making it clear we wanted to keep this matter out of the media. We then held off requesting a domestic violence restraining order as we knew that Johnny was out of the country."

"We took the high road. Unfortunately, Johnny's team immediately went to the press and began viciously attacking Amber’s character. Amber is simply a victim of domestic violence, and none of her actions are motivated by money."

"Amber is a brave and financially independent woman who is showing the courage of her convictions by doing the right thing against Johnny's relentless army of lawyers and surrogates."

Depp is on tour with his band, Hollywood Vampires. His latest film, 'Alice Through the Looking Glass', bombed at the box office this past weekend.
