In audio shared by Daily Mail, Heard and Depp are heard discussing a previous altercation when Depp said accused her of punching him. Heard denied punching him but didn't argue that she did hit him. "Babe, you're not punched ... 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," she said.
Depp's lawyer, Adam Waldman, told USA Today, that it was Heard who recorded the conversation. “The first confessional tape she made reveals a conversation any real abuse victim will recognize all too well," Waldman said. "It exposes that Ms. Heard perpetrated serial violence against Mr. Depp, and then concocted an elaborate abuse hoax to cover it up. Ms. Heard gives a motive for her violence: Mr. Depp was always trying to 'split' to escape her abuse.”
Heard's lawyer argued that just because Heard was abusive, doesn't mean that Depp wasn't.
