Amber Heard’s sister has claimed Johnny Depp asked her to sign a non-disclosure agreement after he allegedly punched her during a violent attack on the Aquaman actress.
Whitney Henriquez testified in court in Fairfax, Virginia on Wednesday about an incident in which her former brother-in-law allegedly punched her in the back, threw a can of Red Bull at a friend, grabbed Ms Heard by the hair and allegedly hit her before ransacking her. Madame Heard’s closet.
The incident, known as “the staircase incident”, is believed to have taken place in March 2015 inside the downtown Los Angeles penthouse where Ms Heard and Mr Depp lived together.
“Johnny then throws a box of red bull and it hits Debbie in the back. She didn’t even react, she didn’t even seem to notice,’ Ms Henriquez told the court during the former couple’s multimillion-dollar libel trial.
“I’m standing up there at the top of the stairs with my back to the stairs and that’s when Johnny runs up the stairs.
“I’m facing Amber. He comes up behind me and kicks me in the back.
Ms Henriquez said her sister yelled at Mr Depp ‘Don’t hit my fucking sister’ and then ‘hit him, land one’.
After Ms Heard punched her husband, Ms Henriquez said Mr Depp grabbed his wife by the hair and punched her “repeatedly” in the face.
Following the incident, she claimed to have found a nondisclosure agreement left on her counter for her to sign.
She said she didn’t sign the NDA.
