Whether sober or not, abuse is still abuse!
In the seemingly never ending saga of Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard, a source has come out to claim that the actor never hit his ex while he was sober. It's just one of the many anecdotes to assert that Depp's alleged struggle with alcohol and drugs has turned him into a violent and unpredictable person.

An insider close to Amber told E! News that the actress hesitated to come forward with her claims because she believed the abuse would eventually "stop". The confidante also went on to claim once J.D.'s violent episodes ended, he would make proclamations that he would change.
The source revealed:
"Amber didn't want to come forward about the abuse because she had faith he'd get better and that it would stop. Whenever there was an incident he'd apologize profusely and she'd forgive him. Until now."
Well, whether you believe Ambs or not, it's clear that no one should stay in an abusive relationship because they hope the abuser will change one day!
The pal, who also claims the blonde is suffering from "severe emotional trauma", went on to add:
"She's now realized that his addictions got the best of him and that she couldn't continue living this way."
How sad. The Depp we're hearing about now sounds SO different than the loving person portrayed by ex Vanessa Paradis and his daughter, Lily-Rose Depp.
Despite all the heartache and drama, the actress is still determined to make sure Johnny gets the help he needs:
"Amber is a tough girl and thick-skinned, which is why those close to her are surprised she has let this happen to her, and it's taken so long for her to divorce him. But their love is unlike anything she has ever experienced and even through what is happening now she still loves him and wants him to get help."
Hmm… considering the 53-year-old's camp vehemently denies any wrongdoing, we're not sure this will happen even if the claims ARE true. Not to mention the poppa has a ton of Hollywood supporters backing him up — we imagine he wouldn't want to lose face at this point!
So, do YOU think Mr. Depp should enter rehab?
