Amber Heard wont press charges against Johnny Depp

The news comes after explosive text messages documenting alleged abuse came to light.

Amber Heard has reportedly decided not to press charges against Johnny Depp over the alleged attack that prompted her to file for divorce.

According to the Sun, Heard is believed to have abandoned her plan to file a police report over the clash at the couple’s Los Angeles home last month.

The news follows the release of a series of text messages that document a history of violence. The messages, allegedly sent between Heard and one of Depp’s assistants include details of violent incidents during the couple’s relationship.

The exchange is believed to have taken place in May, 2014. They begin with a text, apparently sent by ‘Stephen’, apologising on behalf of a man believed to be Depp.

It reads: “Think he’s just texted you. He’s incredibly apologetic and knows that he has done wrong. He wants to get better now.

“He’s been very explicit about that this morning. Feel like we’re at a critical juncture.”

The recipient, believed to be Amber, replied: “Yes but I don’t know how to be around him after what he did to me yesterday. I don’t know if I can stay with him.”
