Comedian Doug Stanhope said both he and his wife were present at the Depp-Heard residence before the alleged abuse took place. 

“We assumed initially that his dour mood was because of his mother’s death the day before,” Stanhope wrote in The Wrap.

“It was not only his mother,” continued Stanhope, “but that Amber was now going to leave him, threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms.”

Representatives for the 52-year-old Depp have denied the allegations, and said that Heard is faking abuse to obtain an advantageous financial agreement in the divorce, where potentially hundreds of millions of Depp’s assets are at stake. 

Depp and Heard began dating in 2011 when the pair met on the set of “The Rum Diary” and would later marry in two ceremonies—once at their West Hollywood home, and then again in a beach ceremony in the Bahamas, both in February of 2015.
