Amber Heard wanted Johnny Depp to know I love him and I'm sorry a year after split, texts reveal
Amber Heard has asked her former talent agent to share the apologetic notes she wrote to Johnny Depp more than a year after she called it quits, the jury at the former couple's defamation trial has been told.
As part of a pre-taped deposition, Christian Carino - a talent agent who previously represented both the Aquaman actress and Pirates of the Caribbean star Creative Artists Agency-shared alleged details related to the ongoing case.
According to text messages between heard and Carino, the actress felt remorse after their breakup, People reports.
Carino, who described himself as a close and close friend of heard at the time, was asked about the text messages he exchanged with her in August 2017.
For some background information, Depp and Heard, who met while working together on the 2011 film The Rum Diary, tied the knot in February 2015. Heard filed for divorce in May 2016 and sought a domestic violence restraining order against the Fantastic Beasts actor less than a week later.
The texts of Carino and Hurd were read aloud by Depp's lawyer.
Hurd wrote to Carino about Depp: "I wrote a lot of notes. Can you give him one? I don't know how or where to start. There is no way to start and all I have to say is, but I have a lot. Finally I am single, clear in my heart and mind. I just want him to know that I love him and that I'm sorry."
Carino said in his testimony that he "believed" that heard was trying to reconcile with Depp at the time. Hurd's romance with Tesla CEO Elon Musk will eventually end in the same month in August 2017.
In a text message sent to Carino in September 2017, Heard shared: "Oh my god I miss him," referring to Depp. Another message I wrote from June 2018 says: "send him a Happy Birthday message."
After her fling with Musk, heard also started seeing Bianca Botti during 2020, and welcomed her first child, a baby girl, as a single mom in April 2021, saying she was "Mom and dad"to little una Paige.
Depp, 58, is suing heard, 36, for defamation over an article she wrote in the Washington Post in December 2018 about her experience with domestic violence.
