Apart from being the ultimate proof that social standards unfairly favor domestic violence against women, this scandal has uplifted some other inappropriate scenes we never expected to see...

It's really has been a turbulent couple of years for Johnny Depp.

The Kentucky born actor, who has been renowned in Hollywood since the 1990s, has been embroiled in a highly publicized domestic abuse scandal with his ex-girlfriend, Amber Heard, for the last 4 years.

But it seems as though there's so much more to the story...

The latest person to be dragged into the scandal is none other than multi-millionaire "Rocketman", Elon Musk. Brace yourselves for this one ladies and gentlemen...

This was previously thought to be a dream coupling.

After meeting on the set of The Rum Diary in 2011, the actor started dating Texan actress and model, Amber Heard, shortly after calling it quits with his long-term partner, Vanessa Paradis.

At first, the pair seemed perfect for each other.

Johnny and Amber enjoyed a happy couple of years together, and would regularly attend red-carpet events as a couple, arm-in-arm and seemingly madly in love.

They announced their engagement in 2014...

via: Getty

And, not ones to waste any time, hastily tied the knot just one year later in February 2015.

However, it was here when things started to go a little ship-shaped.

via: Getty

Their honeymoon period was rather short-lived as, just months after their marriage, Johnny reportedly suffered a hand injury as a result of "smashing bottles and windows" during a heated argument with his wife.

For the next year, various reports of abuse between the pair continued to surface...

via: Getty

So it came as no shock when Amber filed for divorce in March 2016, just fifteen months after the couple had initially exchanged their "I do"s.

At first, the divorce seemed unsuspicious...

via: Getty

With many news outlets reporting that Amber had cited "irreconcilable differences" while filing the divorce petition.

But, only a few months into their separation...

via: Getty

Amber filed a restraining order against Johnny, claiming that he had previously assaulted her.

It was a big allegation to make...

via: Getty

So people were confused when Amber retracted her allegations just one day before the hearing was due to be held.

But this didn't stop the world from turning against Johnny.

via: Getty

Amber had alleged that the actor had hit her on several occasions, and even provided video footage of him flinging a glass of wine across the room in a fit of rage.

She claimed that this would happen every time he'd lose his temper...

via: Getty

And that he would frequently lash out at her, both verbally and physically.

Pictures of her bruised face also emerged...

via: Getty

In which she claimed was a result of him throwing his phone at her. But as texts have now revealed, there's more to that incident than we all thought. Read on to see the newly exposed text messages.

And, in 2018, the actress penned an article for The Washington Post where she opened up about her experience with domestic abuse and violence.

via: Getty

Though she didn't explicitly name Johnny in her op-ed, she did allude to the time period when, “two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out."

There was an outpour of support for Amber...

via: Getty

Who was even made the American Civil Liberties Union's "Ambassador for Women's Issues".

She truly painted herself as the victim...

via: Getty

And, despite profusely denying all the allegations against him, Johnny found his career taking a hit as a result of the on-going scandal.

Fewer and fewer directors were hiring Johnny for roles...

via: Getty

And his appearance in J.K Rowling's Fantastic Beasts sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald, was heavily criticized.

And, in 2018, he was dropped from his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

In a career-shattering announcement just 4 days after Amber's damning article, Disney announced that the actor would no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Though they didn't directly cite Amber's abuse allegations...

via: Getty

It was widely assumed that Disney, who have earned over $4.5 billion at the box office from the Pirates franchise, were trying to distance themselves from the actor and the scandal surrounding him.

Disney is notoriously family-friendly...

via: IMDB

So the motive behind letting Johnny go, despite his undeniable popularity in the movies, was pretty obvious.

Then there was a sudden change in events.

via: Getty

Despite their actions in 2018, Disney are reportedly considering bringing Johnny Depp back to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the 6th installment of the franchise.

This was huge news for the disgraced actor.

via: Getty

But their sudden change of heart wasn't random and comes after a shocking twist in the Depp-Heard scandal.

Last year, Johnny filed a $50-million defamation case against Amber...

via: Getty

And presented evidence that he was the one on the receiving end of the abuse, not the other way around.

Shockingly, the actor alleged that he was the victim all along.

via: Getty

Johnny's defamation lawsuit read: “The op-ed [Amber's article] depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her."

The lawsuit also states that all of Amber’s claims were “categorically and demonstrably false"...

via: Getty

And listed down incidents of Amber’s alleged abuse since the start of their marriage, including punching and kicking, as well as staging her attacks.

The allegations are difficult to read.

via: Getty

"She hit, punched and kicked me. She also repeatedly and frequently threw objects into my body and head, including heavy bottles, soda cans, burning candles, television remote controls and paint thinner cans, which severely injured me." His lawsuit read.

And the recent court evidence has been even more difficult to stomach.

Disgusting photographs showing both parties in compromising situations has led to this case being scrutinized by the masses. It seems as if they are willing to play it as dirty as they can in order to prove themselves as innocent.

But just to crank things up a notch, Depp's lawyer exposed some texts.

via: Getty Images

Adam Waldman used his Twitter account to release transcripts of "flirty" texts exchanged between Heard and billionaire Elon Musk, dated 2016, on a Sunday that was a suspected weekend wherein Heard claimed Depp had abused her.

The texts revealed that Heard and Musk had been in contact multiple times prior to this exchange.

via: Getty Images

At one point, Musk, who is saved as "Rocketman", asks about the alleged abuse and she says it's "irrelevant." They then go onto discuss 24/7 security which Musk says he will provide for her "confidentially."

Later on, it seems as though they discuss why they had to stop talking to each other.

And this is where Musk insinuates he'd like to stay in contact with her despite their current arrangement. She then tells him to ring her because there are things she can't discuss "over text."

What we're so confused about is why Elon Musk seems so heartbroken after Amber Heard ghosted him...

Was he trying to pursue her? Is that why she took a step back and didn't reply to him?

These texts suggest that deeper feelings were definitely involved.

It's the way Musk says: "The radio silence hurt a lot." Heard's silence clearly affected him a lot more than she thought it would. And the fact that he goes on to clarify that he "really liked" her. I don't know about you guys, but everyone else is pretty hooked on these messages.
