Amber Heard has challenged her ex-husband Johnny Depp to do his own TV interview ‘if he has a problem’ with her repeating her defamatory allegations that he beat her during an explosive sit-down with NBC’s Dateline – in which she reveals that she has a ‘binder full of therapist’s notes, which she claims prove her accusations that he physically and sexually abused her.
The 36-year-old actress issued the bold ultimatum to her former spouse via a spokesperson on Friday, hours before her interview with Today show host Savannah Guthrie is due to air in full.
‘If Mr. Depp or his team have a problem with this, we recommend that Johnny himself sit down with Savannah Guthrie for an hour and answer all her questions,’ a spokesperson told DailyMail.com after a series of clips from the interview were aired on Today and on Peacock in which Heard branded Depp, 59, a ‘liar’ and doubled down on claims that he beat her and sexually assaulted her during their relationship.
During a preview clip from the interview, Heard also released a ‘binder full of notes from her therapist, which she claims is fresh evidence proving her allegations of physical and sexual abuse against her Depp, despite the notes already being dismissed by the judge in her defamation case.
Heard turned over ‘years’ worth’ of notes taken by her therapist detailing instances when she says the actor ‘hit her, threw her against a wall, and threatened to kill her’ as part of her new interview with NBC’s Dateline. However, the judge in her trial against Depp had already dismissed the notes as ‘hearsay’ and barred her legal team from submitting the documents as evidence.
Nevertheless, the actress has now gone public with the binder, which ‘dates back to 2011 from the very beginning of her relationship’ ahead of an explosive sit-down interview with Savannah Guthrie, due to air on Friday night.
The interview follows a three-part sneak peek that was broadcast on NBC’s Today show earlier this week, when Heard repeated her defamatory claims about the abuse she says she suffered at the hands of Depp.
In an explosive 20-minute preview from the Dateline episode, notes taken by Heard’s therapist during their sessions are shown on-screen, with Guthrie, 50, revealing how they contained several descriptions of violence that the actress alleged she had faced during her appointments.
‘There’s a binder worth of years of notes dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of my relationship that was taken by my doctor to who I was reporting the abuse,’ Heard told Guthrie.
‘Her notes represented years, years of real-time explanations of what was going on.’
According to Guthrie and Dateline, which was given access to the so-called ‘binder’, the notes contain descriptions of violence dating back to January 2012, when ‘Heard told her therapist Depp “hit her, threw her on the floor”‘.
