Washington, D.C.: Amber Heard said on Monday that she divorced monster Johnny Depp in May 2016 because she wanted for her life.I had to leave him, Heard, a 36-year-old actress, told the jury on a defamation lawsuit brought against her by her ex-husband.I knew I wouldnt survive if I didnt, she said.I was so afraid that it was going to be so disastrous for me at the time.Heard said that filing for divorce was the hardest thing Ive ever had to do.

I loved him so much, according to Heard, and her attempts to curb his drug and alcohol use had failed.The monster had been the normal and not the exception, she said.The rage was now normal, she said, because of a restraining order that was brought in the same week that she filed for divorce.Depp, who had a leading role in Aquaman, denied ever striking Heard and said he was the one who was physically abusive.Heard also alleged that he was a domestic abuser in a sex scene in London Fields, which the film-makers did not know about her.I have an incredibly jealous man who is even angry with me for breaking the rule that I have a sex scene.I'm telling him it wasn't me.I didn't shoot the scene, she said.

Their divorce was finalized two years later.
