As is obvious from his recent interview with GQ, the loss of money, the alleged abuse and the drama that followed still haunt the Pirates of Caribbean actor.
In reference to his alleged attack on Heard in May 2016, he says:
“She was at a party the next day. Her eye wasn’t closed. She had her hair over her eye, but you could see the eye wasn’t shut. Twenty-five feet away from her, how the f–k am I going to hit her? Which, by the way, is the last thing I would’ve done. I might look stupid, but I ain’t f–king stupid.”
He claims that the police couldn’t find a sign of abuse on her body even though there was an alleged video appearing to show otherwise.
“I mean, they spoke to the police, but the police saw nothing and they offered her an emergency medical technician. She said no. Police see nothing on her. Police see nothing broken in the place, no marks, and then they offer her an EMT to have a look at her and she says no and I don’t know if it was the next day or a couple of days later, but then there was a bruise. There was a red mark and then there was a brown bruise.”
He admits to having been physical towards paparazzi but insists he could never be physical towards someone he loves.
He also talks about the effect of the episode on his children, “How could someone, anyone, come out with something like that against someone, when there’s no truth to it whatsoever? I’m sure it wasn’t easy for my 14-year-old boy to go to school, you know what I mean? With people going, ‘Hey, look at this magazine, man. What, your dad beats up chicks or something?’ Why did he have to go through that? Why did my daughter have to go through that?”
He, however, ends by saying he “(wants) the truth. That’s really my biggest obsession in the world. It’s just the f–king truth.”
