Johnny Depp is still bringing the messiness to his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife. The latest of which involves lit cigarettes and that notorious alleged hand-busting fight in Australia during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
According to The Blast, the newest allegation from Johnny is that Amber once put a cigarette out on his cheek. This fits the narrative being pushed by Johnny’s side, which is that Amber is abusive, manipulative, and a liar. Johnny recently filed documents accusing Amber of cutting him with a bottle and burning him with a dart during their alleged fight back in March 2015.
At the time, Johnny was seen in Australia with his hand all wrapped up and busted, which caused production to shut down while he returned to the US to have surgery on it. A year later, Amber claimed Johnny fucked up his hand and severed his finger while drunkenly breaking bottles and windows. Johnny is now claiming that the alleged fight in Australia started after Amber flew into a rage upon discovering that he had spoken to his lawyers about a possible post-nuptial agreement.
Johnny claims he wanted to avoid Amber and any possible fight, so he went and hid out in the bar located in their rental home. Johnny says he poured himself a drink – his first in a year up to that point. Amber allegedly came downstairs, threw one bottle, which missed him, then threw another, which hit him and severed his finger. The Amber allegedly put out her cigarette on his cheek.
The Blast obtained a picture from Johnny’s Australian hospital visit, and they believe you can see evidence of the alleged cigarette burn on the right side of his cheek. Johnny’s first alleged drink in a year must have hit him pretty hard too, because those sunglasses scream, “Help, I’m far too fucked up for this fluorescent lighting.”

Also rumored to have happened during that fight was that Johnny drunkenly wrote the words, “Starring Billy Bob Easy Amber,” on a mirror and the walls in blood and paint. Johnny claims he did do that, but only because he was in shock at the time. He also denies ever pissing anywhere in the house.
Johnny’s lawyer Adam Waldman spoke to The Blast, and it sounds like they’re both pretty confident this cigarette accusation is going to stick.
“The overwhelming body of evidence we already amassed unambiguously establishes Amber Heard as a serially violent abuser of both men and women, and obliterates her preposterous abuse hoaxes against Johnny Depp. Yet Ms. Heard remains propped up by hoax-enablers including Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid The Sun and her corporate and ‘philanthropic’ partners. Having already dismantled Ms. Heard’s three most notorious abuse hoaxes, today we reply in UK court to her new frauds, which the Sun unwisely chose to cut and paste as their ‘defense’ against Mr. Depp’s defamation lawsuit.”
The Blast reached out to Amber’s team, but received no response. UPDATE: Amber’s lawyer Eric George denied it.
“This allegation is absurd, offensive and categorically untrue. This photograph proves nothing – apart from the fact that Johnny Depp is desperate to throw out any outlandish allegation to deflect attention from his physical and ongoing psychological abuse of Amber Heard.”
Putting a cigarette out on someone’s face is pretty dark. But of course, this is just Johnny’s side of things. Maybe Amber used Johnny’s face as an ashtray, and maybe she didn’t. All I know is that if this goes to trial, Johnny is going to have a hard time if the prosecution asks him to point on the picture where Amber allegedly burned him.
“That’s it, on my eyebrow. Wait, no…that’s where I drunkenly cut myself when I fumbled the opening of my favorite vintage switchblade. Hmmm…maybe right there on my lip? No, that’s where I drunkenly singed myself while smoking a pipe stuffed with Hunter S. Thompson’s ashes. Gosh, this is harder than I thought.”
