ET has exclusively obtained never-before-seen text messages that a source says are between Amber Heard and a man purported to be Johnny Depp's assistant, Stephen Deuters, that date back to before the estranged couple was married -- and long before other alleged incidents Heard previously detailed in court records claiming that Depp was physically abusive with her.
The text exchange, which the source says is from May 2014, begins with a message from "Stephen" who is apologizing on behalf of a man, purportedly to be Depp. "Think he's just texted you. He's incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong," Stephen's alleged text reads. "He wants to get better now. He's been very explicit about that this morning. Feel like we're at a critical juncture."
Stephen allegedly reiterates that the man purported to be Depp has no recollection of the events that occurred. "He was appalled," Stephen writes. "When I told him he kicked you, he cried. It was disgusting. And he knows it."
"He's a little lost boy. And needs all the help he can get," Stephen allegedly continues. "He is so very sorry, as he should be."
Heard responds, "He's done this many times before. Tokyo, the island, London (remember that?!), and I always stay. Always believe he's going to get better...And then every 3 or so month [sic], I'm in the exact same position."
ET was not able to independently verify the recipients of the messages or whether they had been edited and has reached out to Depp's rep and Deuters in regard to the texts.
After filing for divorce from Depp following 15 months of marriage, Heard filed and was granted a temporary domestic violence restraining order against the 52-year-old actor. In the 30-year-old actress' court filing, she claims that "there was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared for my life." Heard also says that during the "entirety" of their relationship, Depp had been "verbally and physically abusive" to her.
Depp's divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, said in court documents that Heard is "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse."
Depp is currently on tour in Europe with his band, Hollywood Vampires, and a number of his friends and family, including daughter Lily-Rose and reportedly her mother, Depp’s ex, Vanessa Paradis, have come forward to say that he never exhibited any abusive behavior towards them.
"My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know, he's been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same," Depp's daughter wrote in an Instagram caption.
Paradis also penned a letter in support of her ex. "To whom it may concern, Johnny Depp is the father of my two children," Paradis' note, which was obtained by TMZ, began. "He is a sensitive, loving and loved person, and I believe with all my heart that these recent allegations being made are outrageous."
