The Johhny Depp-Amber Heard case has taken a drastic new turn. In a shocking audiotape, from a therapy session, Amber can be heard confessing that she hit Johny. "I'm sorry that I didn't, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you're not punched," she says in the tape, adding, "I don't know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you're fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you." Amber stresses a few more times in the tap that she did not punch or deck her ex-husband, but only hit him with her hand without the hurting him. "You didn't get punched. You got hit. I'm sorry I hit you like this. But I did not punch you. I did not f**king deck you." Johnny Depp’s Ex-Wife Amber Heard Pleads Judge to Record Domestic Violence, Drugs and Alcohol Abuse in Response to His $50 Million Defamation Suit.
