JOHNNY Depp claims ex-wife Amber Heard had “painted-on bruises” on her face before asking a court for a restraining order against him.
The star, 55, said he had surveillance film and witnesses to show the actress, who claims he attacked her, was unmarked “each day of the preceding week”.
He also claimed he feared death from MRSA after Heard accidentally sliced his finger off smashing a vodka bottle.
The claims are outlined in court papers filed in a £39million defamation lawsuit by Depp against Heard, 33, after she told a newspaper she was a victim of domestic abuse.
Depp and Aquaman star Heard had signed a non-disclosure agreement after their marriage ended in divorce in 2017.
