In a 2015 two-hour taped therapy session, Amber Heard, 33, was heard talking to actor Depp, her then husband, about their strained relationship, admitting that she hit him, and had previously thrown pots and pans at him.

In the tape, Amber was heard saying: “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,”

“I can’t promise that it will all be perfect. I can’t promise you I won’t get physical again. God I f***ing sometimes I get so mad I lose it.”
