Even after the defamation trial verdict, Amber Heard continues to accuse her ex-husband of physical and sexual abuse. To prove her point, the actress even shared a detailed binder that contains years of her therapist's notes proving the abuse Heard suffered from during her time with Depp.

Amber Heard isn't the one to back down and has now brought forward new evidence to prove her allegations of physical and sexual abuse on her by her ex-husband, sharing 'years' worth' of notes taken by her therapist that detail instances when she says the actor 'hit her, threw her against a wall, and threatened to kill her'. 

The Aquaman actress turned over 'a binder worth of years of notes dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of her relationship' to NBC's Dateline ahead of an explosive sit-down interview with Savannah Guthrie, which is due to air on Friday night - following a three-part sneak peek that was broadcast on the Today show earlier this week, when Heard repeated her defamatory claims about the abuse she says she suffered at the hands of Depp, 59.

The 20-minute interview shows the notes taken by the actress's therapist over the years in which she details all the abuse Heard suffered from during her time together with her ex-partner Johnny Depp.

'There's a binder worth of years of notes dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of my relationship that were taken by my doctor who I was reporting the abuse to,' Heard - whose legal team was barred from submitting the notes as evidence by the judge in the trial, who dismissed them as 'hearsay' - told Guthrie. 

According to Guthrie and Dateline, which was given access to the so-called 'binder', the notes share all the details of the violence dating back to January 12, when 'Heard told her therapist Depp "hit her, threw her on the floor"'.

8 months after this, he 'ripped her nightgown, threw her on the bed' and then in 2013 'he threw her against a wall and threatened to kill her', the notes allege. 

The latest preview clip for the Dateline interview comes one day after the Today show aired its third installment of the wide-ranging sit-down, in which Heard confessed that she 'absolutely still loves' Depp - despite once again speaking out to accuse him of physical abuse during their relationship. 

Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife Amber Heard in a $50m defamation trial over a 2018 op-ed in which the actress claimed to be the victim of domestic violence.

Even though Heard did not explicitly mentioned Depp's name but it was obvious who was the target at the time. While giving his testimony, Depp told the judge that because of these false allegations he lost not only his career but his personal life was also badly impacted.

And now even though Heard has lost against Depp, she continues to publicly accuse him of domestic violence- while telling Dateline that she is not a 'vindictive' person who is trying to 'seek vengeance' against him. 

'One thing I can tell you is, one thing I'm not is vindictive,' she says in the Dateline preview. 'This would be a really lousy way to get vengeance.

'As silly as it is to say this out loud, my goal - the only thing I can hope for at this point... I just want people to see me as a human being.'

When pressed by Guthrie about testimony given by several witnesses who said they 'saw Heard instigate violence' against Depp during their relationship, the actress fired back, insisting that she 'never had to instigate it' and that she only ever 'responded to it', claiming that she only became violent towards the actor 'to cope with' the abuse she alleges he subjected her to.

'When you're living in violence and it becomes normal, as I testified to, you have to adapt, you adopt strategies to cope with it,' she said. 'If it meant, as I testified to, if it meant the difference between a broken nose or a sore cheek, I would do it.'

She added: 'I got hit for a very long time before I even knew how to defend myself.'

Guthrie pointed out to Heard that why she is the only woman to come forward with these allegations, questioning why nobody else would have spoken out if they had endured the same violent treatment that she claims to have. 

'Look what happened to me when I came forward. Would you?' Heard retorted.

In a statement given to Dateline, Depp's legal team slammed Heard for continuing to air her allegations so publicly, even after the trial concluded, saying: 'It's unfortunate that the defendant and her team are back to repeating, reimagining and re-litigating matters that have already been decided by the Court and a verdict that was unanimously and unequivocally decided by a jury in Johnny's favor.'

Heard claims that she will 'stand by her testimony to her dying day', repeating the language used in the Washington Post op-ed that sparked the marathon six-week trial by describing herself as a 'survivor'. 

'I will [stand by my testimony] to my dying day. I know what happened to me. I'm here as a survivor,' she said. 'To my dying day I will stand by every word of my testimony.'

Heard now claims that she never wanted her abuse claims against Depp to be aired so 'publicly', insisting that she never wanted to go to trial, but that she 'had no choice' because her former spouse chose to sue her. 

'I didn't want this to be a thing, I didn't want it to be a trial, I didn't want it to be a part of the public record,' she said. 'But when someone sues you, you don't really have a choice.'

Previously, in the three-part Today preview of the Dateline sit-down, Heard made other bombshell revelations, listed here, including admitting that she 'absolutely still loves' Depp - despite branding him a 'liar' who swayed the jury with his 'fantastic acting', a
