Video of Amber Heard admitting she punched Johnny Depp 'to stop him from attacking her sister'

Video has emerged of Amber Heard admitting she once hit now estranged husband, Johnny Depp, but claimed it was to stop him from attacking her sister.

The actress in her 2016 deposition about her divorce from the actor, told how she and Depp were having one of their many fights which involved him beating her when he approached her sister, Whitney, on a landing between two staircases in their home in Los Angeles in March 2015.

She feared he might push her so she hit him in the face, she said, adding that she would have done 'anything' to stop her sister coming to harm.

The video obtained by DailyMail on Friday, begins with Depp's attorney's and her own squabbling and Depp's attorney asking if she had ever hit him with a closed fist.

'One time Johnny was hitting me and he was hitting me hard and repeatedly and I was screaming.

'Security walks in and they don't do anything about it and they're, he, makes this motion when Jerry Judge yells "Boss", or Sean, I can't remember who it was.

'All we had was a little bit of separation and my sister runs down the stairs. We're on a landing in between two flights of stairs...'

Depp's attorney then interrupted her saying: 'Miss Heard I must interrupt you because I asked you a yes or no question.'

Heard's attorney fought back: 'Well you can't. Withdraw your question then because she is answering.'

As the lawyers argued, she looked around the room, silently.

Depp's lawyer pushed: 'I'm asking for a yes or a no answer.'

Heard is seen looking at her lawyer, off camera, as he tells her: 'You don't have to answer it the way she wants you to answer it.'

The actress nodded then continued with her description of the incident.

'He was about to push my sister down the stairs. She was attempting to break us up. I am protective over my baby sister.

'When he laid hands on her, I don't know what I did. But I know I jumped in between the actions which I saw could lead to a fatal injury for my sister.

'She was standing at the top of a flight of stairs. She has never hurt anyone in her life and she does not deserve to be pushed down a flight of stairs. It looked like she was about to be.

'I would have done what anybody who has a child or a sister would have done. I acted defensively in her life.

'I saw her standing at the top of a flight of stairs, trying to interrupt a fight between him and I.

'I don't know what part of my body I put in between me and her but I would have done anything. I would have done anything to prevent her from being pushed down a flight of stairs.

It is one of many instances of domestic abuse she describes in legal documents filed on Friday to try to dismiss Depp's defamation lawsuit against her.

The pair divorced in 2017 - two years after she filed and after she sought a restraining order from him.

Afterwards, Heard penned an op-ed for The Washington Post where she described being a survivor of abuse.

She never once mentioned Depp's name in it but he claims it is defamatory. He is seeking $50million from her, claiming he never laid a finger on her.

Depp dismissed the lawsuit as 'new lies'.

His attorney told People: ' A hoax confronted with the reality of evidence requires new lies to sustain itself. Yesterday’s filing, made by a woman with a prior arrest and incarceration for domestic abuse, presented Amber Heard’s new lies.'
