Their Hollywood romance turned sour pretty damn quick, but it's the revelations since their divorce that have really shocked the world.
First, it appeared that Amber was a victim of Depp's violent and drunken outbursts and that she had no choice but to divorce him for her own safety. Then it was alleged that she had fabricated the abuse so that she could get her hands on Depp's fortune.
And now, the tables have tunned with Depp accusing Heard of physically assaulting him.
Who are we to believe?
Well, after reading recently revealed court papers detailing the last message that Amber sent to Johnny, we know who our bet is on... keep reading to find out exactly what she said.
They made such a good looking couple when they first got together in 2009.
But signs that their relationship was not destined to be a smooth one were evident from the very beginning.
But obviously, they both split from their respective partners and soon became Hollywood's hottest new couple.
Except Johnny's choice of gift was a little unusual.

Clearly, Amber was bowled over by Johnny (or his generosity).
And talking of Pirates of the Caribbean, during filming it was said that Johnny badly injured his hand.

The incident reportedly took place only a month after the pair married.

It wasn't only violence that marred their relationship.

He was notorious for being unreliable because of his substance abuse.
He even allegedly showed up late and inebriated for Amber's birthday party in 2016.
All this happened within days of Depp's mother passing away.

As with any high profile divorce, private details of their marriage started to be uncovered.Details that they probably would have preferred to be kept a secret. Like the video that was leaked of the couple in their home wherein you can see Depp swearing, drinking copious amounts of wine and generally smashing up the place.
The couple finally divorced in January 2017, but this was not the end of the Johnny and Amber saga. Far from it.

But Amber was apparently so scared of Depp that she took out a restraining order against him.

Not all were convinced that Heard was as innocent as she seemed.

Heard later spoke out about standing up to sexual violence in the Washington Post.mention Depp by name, Johnny reportedly launched a defamation action against her and sought $50 million in damages. Heard retaliated by filling more than three hundred pages of documents detailing the alleged abuse including photographs.
But Depp refused to stand down and said that it was Heard that abused him.
He also claimed that the night that he severed his finger was a result of Heard's temper, not his.
And now papers have been released in which Depp speaks about the alleged abuse on both sides.
He then went on to say that the injuries were staged.
And he brought up an incident that happened ten years ago between Heard and her ex-wife.
