Amber Heard’s father threatened to shoot Johnny Depp during the couple’s bitter divorce, according to latest reports.
David Killackey, who worked on both Heard and Depp’s classic cars at his California repair shop Performance Allison Transmissions in the wake of their 2016 split.
The insider cites that Amber had become abusive towards Depp while her father made death threats to him over a phone call.
Killackey had also filed a declaration for the ongoing defamation suit between the two stars.
He stated: “The reply I received what can only be described as an extremely hostile response from Amber. I did my best to convey to her that I did not wish to get in the middle of the dispute between her and Mr. Depp.”
Killackey’s allegations were brought to light in the court battle over Depp’s $50million lawsuit accusing Amber Heard of defaming him by writing in an article op-ed that she was a survivor of domestic violence.
She never named him in it but Depp claims that because their bitter divorce was so public, it inferred he had been violent towards to her – something he insists is a lie.
Depp’s lawyers say that Killackey’s account proves that Heard was motivated by money to speak out against her ex-husband.
It was revealed further that David Heard had also stated that he hails from Texas and carries 45’s with Johnny “meeting the end of mine.”
