Whitney Heard, Amber Heard’s sister, admitted to asking Johnny Depp to strike her over text messages.
Whitney admitted in court that she had a friendly relationship with her ex-brother-in-law and had begged Depp to attack her sister during her sister’s marriage.
“You testified that you suspected Mr Depp of striking your sister at some point in 2013?” Depp’s lawyer inquired.
Whitney answered, “Suspicions.”
“However, you were truly kidding with Mr Depp about beating your sister in June 2013, right?” continued attorney
“Unfortunately, over test texts,” the sister said.
“Were you encouraging him to strike her?” Depp’s lawyer was cross-examined.
“We were kidding about it, not genuinely urging him to hit her. Unfortunately, yes “Whitney admitted.
She went on: “I didn’t really comprehend what I was going through. Knowing what I know today, I would never have said it.”
Whitney said Depp punched her in the back during one of the bouts.
“I hear Amber shout, ‘Don’t hit my fucking sister!’ She smacks him — lands one.” She further added that Depp grabbed Heard “by the hair with one hand and was whacking her repeatedly in the face with the other.”
