During a defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, Johnny Depp gave lengthy testimony.
In the latest shocking twist, the actor's secret recording was presented to the judge, and it alleges that Amber hit Depp.
In the recording, Amber can be heard saying that she did not recall the incident due to being on Ambien.
Depp can be heard asking his former wife whether she had "lost memory" about "kicking" in the door of a bathroom that he had retreated to before allegedly punching him "in the skull."
"I was upset, there was a lot going on and I was on an Ambien. Why are you obsessing over the fact I cannot remember the way you are remembering it? I said I was sorry. I'm not denying it."
Ambien is a prescription drug for sleeping. Metro UK wrote that Roseanne Barr used it while she tweeted infamous racist claims about the former president, Barack Obama. The drug's manufacturer, Sanofi, responded with a tweet saying, "racism is not a known side effect" of the medication.
Back to Depp Vs. Heard trial. The recording further said that Amber was unhappy with Depp, who would retreat to the bathroom to avoid arguing.
Amber Admits To Hitting Johnny
The most chilling part of the recording was Amber allegedly saying that she admitted to "hitting" him instead of punching the actor.
Amber's voice was played, saying:
"You didn't get punched, you got hit. I'm sorry I hit you like this, but I did not punch you. I did not fu*king deck you. I fu*king was hitting you. I don't know what the motion of my actual hand was. But you're fine. I did not hurt you. I did not punch you. I was hitting you."
The court was also presented with a photo of Johnny Depp's bruised face.
Depp said security guard Sean Bett took the picture in March 2015, a year before Heard claimed Depp was physically abusive.
Heard allegedly admitted to throwing "pots and pans" at Depp in the recordings. She accused him of being a "fu*king baby" and "bitching about" the violence.
The Aquaman star added her attitude was "the difference between me and you."
Before the actress admitted that she "did start a physical fight," Heard said:
"You are such a fu*king baby, grow the fu*k up, Johnny!"
Depp's Severed Finger
The couple married in 2014, but one of the biggest arguments happened only a year later while they were in Australia.
At the time, Depp's tip of the middle finger was cut off. It led to his lawyers asking Heard to sign a post-nuptial agreement.
AP News reported that Amber threw two vodka bottles at Johnny. The second exploded when he placed his hand on a basement bar and severed the finger, exposing his bone.
In court, Depp explained:
"I don't know what a nervous breakdown feels like, but that's probably the closest I've ever been."
The actor then wrote on the walls all the lies Amber told him with his blood. When he was taken to the hospital, Depp said he injured himself.
He allegedly wanted to protect Amber, but her lawyers argued the laws of physics don't support Depp's story and that they would introduce evidence to prove that.
During Depp's testimony, he said that he never struck a woman and accused Heard of "physical abuse" that was "constant," as well as the "bullying" of himself and others.
What took Depp so long to make the recordings public and why he took them in the first place is not entirely clear. In case you still have doubts, here is a video from the courtroom:
