And they convey violence, and lots of it.
ET obtained some disturbing new text messages that are said to be between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s assistant, Stephen Deuters. They date back to WAYYYY before the estranged couple was married, and even before other incidents Amber’s come forward about. These texts are from May 2014 and you can read them all from screen grabs HERE. But, I’ll give you the gist of it: it’s May 2014 and the texts begin with a message from Stephen, who is apologizing on behalf of Depp. And then, Stephen says Johnny feels awful and really wants to see Amber:
“Think he’s just texted you. He’s incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong,” Stephen’s alleged text reads. “He wants to get better now. He’s been very explicit about that this morning. Feel like we’re at a critical juncture.”
The recipient of the text, which ET’s source says is Heard, responds, “Yes but I don’t know how to be around him after what he did to me yesterday. I don’t know if I can stay with him.”
Stephen purportedly answers, “He wants to see you so much. He’s distraught.”
Heard texts back, “Obviously he has no idea what he did or the extent that he did it. If someone was truly honest with him about how bad it really was, he’d be appalled.”
“I’m sad that he doesn’t have a better way to really know the severity of his actions yesterday,” she continues. “Unfortunately for me, I remember in full detail everything that happened.”
Stephen allegedly reiterates that the man purported to be Depp has no recollection of the events that occurred. “He was appalled,” Stephen writes. “When I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it.”
“He’s a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get,” Stephen allegedly continues. “He is so very sorry, as he should be.”
Heard responds, “He’s done this many times before. Tokyo, the island, London (remember that?!), and I always stay. Always believe he’s going to get better…And then every 3 or so month [sic], I’m in the exact same position.”
ET was not able to independently verify the recipients of the messages or whether they had been edited, and honestly I’m suspicious. If I was Amber and these were real I’d be WAYYY less cool and collected, and apparently she’s known to be a bit of a hot head. But, I don’t know.
