Ever since Heard received restraining order against Johnny Depp, this whole thing has gotten insanely out of control. Now, E! News is reporting that the couple’s relationship varied depending on Depp’s alleged drug use, and how Heard thought things would improve (spoiler: they didn’t). Hard to know what to believe anymore, but here’s the newest source coming forward to further stir up some media attention:
“Amber didn’t want to come forward about the abuse because she had faith he’d get better and that it would stop,” the source claims. But Heard has said that when Johnny was sober he wouldn’t lay a hand on her, but it was a different story when he was under the influence.
The source also claims Heard didn’t come forward before because she has “suffered severe emotional trauma.” Our insider explains Heard would say that Depp would try to atone for his actions. “Whenever there was an incident he’d apologize profusely and she’d forgive him. Until now,” the source says.
“She’s now realized that his addictions got the best of him and that she couldn’t continue living this way.” Heard eventually told people that she became “scared of him and his temper” but managed to stay strong.
“Amber is a tough girl and thick-skinned, which is why those close to her are surprised she has let this happen to her, and it’s taken so long for her to divorce him,” the source explains. “But their love is unlike anything she has ever experienced and even through what is happening now she still loves him and wants him to get help.”

Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis and even our good pal Benicio Del Toro, have publicly defended the Pirates of the Caribbean actor but I still want to err on the side of Amber, honestly. We can’t know exactly what’s happening, but those pictures are etched in my mind, as s everything about all the booze, manipulation and horrible texts.
