Depp has denied all of Heard's previous allegations of abuse, and is suing his ex-wife over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in December 2018 in which she described being an alleged victim of domestic violence.
"High-level female execs at the studio are extremely anxious about working with Depp and the message it sends to the public, especially after the recent sordid departure of CEO Kevin Tsujihara", the source said.
Wright- who has claimed repeatedly to be a witness of him abusing her - was on the phone to Depp and Wright yelled to Heard to get out of the home for fear of her safety.
Depp allegedly became violent again during an August 2015 trip to Thailand and Malaysia. "I anxious that Johnny was in a blacked-out state and unaware of the damage he was doing and that he could actually kill me". She alleged Depp "would become a totally different person, often delusional and violent". "We called that version of Johnny, 'the Monster, '" she said. He then "taunted me by yelling out the name 'James Franco, '" she said.
"Johnny kicked me in the back, causing me to fall over".
"The only way for Amber Heard to sustain her hoax is with more lies", Depp attorney Adam Waldman said in an email. She claimed they were in Australia and Depp had taken MDMA and ecstasy; he then allegedly slapped and pushed her during an argument before she locked herself in a bedroom for the remainder of the night. All the charges against her were dropped and Van Ree said in 2016 that Heard never domestically abused her. The abuse continued for three days, she said, until Depp was hospitalized and she was left with "a busted lip, a swollen nose, and cuts all over my body". In 2013, he set fire to a painting given to Heard by an ex, and hit her on the face, leaving a bloody lip, she says. "Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies". "Johnny threw his boot at me while I was on the ground".
ET has reached out to Depp and Heard's reps for comment.
Heard obtained a restraining order against Depp a week after filing for divorce in 2016, alleging domestic abuse. "Yesterday's filing, made by a woman with a prior arrest and incarceration for domestic abuse, presented Amber Heard's new lies".
Johnny Depp's lawyer is maintaining the actor's innocence following the emergence of video footage showing his ex-wife Amber Heard making allegations of domestic violence against him.
"Mr. Depp never abused Ms".
While talking about a flight they took from Boston to LA in May 2014, Heard states that her former husband appeared to be drunk and was clutching a bottle of champagne. They were part of an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity for Ms. She recently starred in the biggest hit of her career, the DC superhero film Aquaman, which has made over a billion dollars at the box office.
The 55-year-old actor is now pursuing legal action against his ex-wife - whom he was married to for just over a year before filing for divorce in May 2016 - in a $50 million defamation lawsuit after she previously accused him of domestic abuse.
