Depp sat down with GQ to talk about the allegations Heard has made against him. He addressed her accusation that he attacked her on May 2016, saying, “She was at a party the next day. Her eye wasn’t closed. She had her hair over her eye, but you could see the eye wasn’t shut.”
“Twenty-five feet away from her, how the f**k am I going to hit her? Which, by the way, is the last thing I would’ve done. I might look stupid, but I ain’t f**king stupid,” Depp added.
He also said that while public opinion might be against him due to his attacks on the paparazzi, he would never hurt someone that he loves.

He went so far as to say that even the police could not find any hint of abuse on her body, explaining:
“I mean, they spoke to the police, but the police saw nothing and they offered her an emergency medical technician. She said no. Police see nothing on her. Police see nothing broken in the place, no marks, and then they offer her an EMT to have a look at her and she says no and I don’t know if it was the next day or a couple of days later, but then there was a bruise. There was a red mark and then there was a brown bruise.”
Depp said that he had stayed quiet about the incident so far because he did not want to get into a “p***ing contest with someone about.” He added that he is very regretful of the way the whole situation has affected his children.
He said, “How could someone, anyone, come out with something like that against someone, when there’s no truth to it whatsoever? I’m sure it wasn’t easy for my 14-year-old boy to go to school, you know what I mean? With people going, ‘Hey, look at this magazine, man. What, your dad beats up chicks or something?’ Why did he have to go through that? Why did my daughter have to go through that?”

Despite having reservations, Depp also talked about people’s perception of his drama with Amber Heard. He said, “We probably shouldn’t be talking about this, but I am worried. I worry about the people that bought it and I worry about her. It’s just not right.”
“I will never stop fighting. I’ll never stop. They’d have to f–king shoot me. An episode like this takes time to get over. It’s a mourning for someone you thought was…” He trails off in the interview, saying she was “something” to him, since he did “marry her somehow.”
Depp concluded, “I want the truth. That’s really my biggest obsession in the world. It’s just the f**king truth.”
