Amber Heard’s Sister Reveals What Happened After Johnny Depp Allegedly Hit Her

“I’ve never seen my sister fall so madly for somebody.”

Amber Heard’s sister testified on Wednesday afternoon saying that she watched the actress’ relationship transform with Johnny Depp. Whitney Heard Henriquez, Heard’s younger sister, said in the court that she witnessed actor Johnny Depp grab Heard by the hair and hit her in the face repeatedly when they were married.

Henriquez said that she lived with Heard and Depp off and on during the course of their relationship and that she thought of Depp as a brother. Speaking of an altercation, Henriquez said Depp ran up a set of stairs at their penthouse towards her and allegedly hit her.

“He comes up behind me, strikes me in the back. I hear Amber shout don’t hit my f****** sister. She smacks him, lands one,” Henriquez said. “By that time Johnny had already grabbed Amber by the hair with one hand and was whacking her repeatedly in the face with the other. At that point, that’s when [Depp’s security guard] Travis [McGivern] runs up the stairs, after Amber landed one. Travis then pulls them apart.”

According to Amber Heard’s sister Henriquez, Heard found text messages that showed Depp was allegedly having an affair, causing an argument in which Depp eventually said, “Amber made me do it.” 

Heard’s closet was “completely destroyed” by Depp afterward, and following the staircase incident, Henriquez said she was given a non-disclosure agreement form to sign.

“There was an NDA on my kitchen table. … My understanding is it’s a contract to keep things private. To keep your mouth shut, essentially. I was asked to sign one. I don’t believe I signed it. I left sometime after.”

However, McGivern, one of Depp’s witnesses, previously testified in the trial, offering a differing account of the staircase incident. The security guard, who is still employed by Depp, recalled a “relatively peaceful conversation” that devolved into a “louder” and “more volatile” discourse. He said Heard was the one who threw a Red Bull can at Depp during the incident, leading McGivern to stand near Depp as the “verbal onslaught continued from both of them.”

“Mr. Depp was giving as good as he got at that point,” said McGivern. “He was angry and agitated.” He added that he blocked a purse thrown by Heard too, and that the Aquaman actress “tried to spit on” Depp amid the “verbal vitriol from both of them.”

“Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a fist and an arm come across my right shoulder and I heard and saw a closed fist contact Mr. Depp in the left side of his face. That was Ms. Heard’s fist,” McGivern said. Adding the actor’s reaction, he said: “The initial look on his face kind of mirrored mine, kind of a look of shock. Like, ‘What just happened? Where did that come from?’ At that point, I wasn’t gonna let Mr. Depp get hit any more so I moved him down the last flight of stairs to the lower level and told him, ‘We are leaving.’ It wasn’t up to him anymore. Just for his safety.”

Heard testified that she “swung at” Depp in the alleged fight so that he “didn’t push my sister down the stairs.” She said on the stand, “In all of my relationship to date with Johnny, I hadn’t landed a blow. And I, for the first time, hit him — like, actually hit him. Square in the face.”

Henriquez said the relationship between her sister and Depp had begun promisingly. “They were incredibly in love,” she said. “I actually to this day — I’ve never seen my sister fall so madly for somebody.”

“And things were wonderful,” she continued. “They seem to really understand each other and get along well. But very quickly this pattern emerged as their relationship went on that if Johnny was using, there almost always was a fight.”
