In court documents obtained by The Independent, Heard wrote: ‘I live in fear that Johnny will return to the residence unannounced to terrorise me, physically and emotionally.’

Comedian and close friend of the family, Doug Stanhope, has also written a piece for The Wrap which claims Amber was ‘manipulating’ and is trying to blackmail Johnny.

Writing that Depp told him that ‘Amber was going to leave him, threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms.’

‘Blackmail is what I would imagine other people might put it, including the manner in which he is now being vilified’, he added.

Doug added that he and his girlfriend Bingo were worried about the couple even before they got married.

‘We’d watched it build like this before they were married,’ Stanhope wrote. ‘We’d watched her manipulate and f**k with him for years.’

The court case is ongoing.
