One of Johnny Depp’s oldest friends says his ex-wife Amber Heard is seeking to “destroy” the star after not getting what she wanted following their 2016 divorce.

In an exclusive interview with Page Six, Gina Deuters who is married to Depp’s longtime business partner and assistant Stephen Deuters gave her perspective on the couple’s rocky five-year relationship.

“There was one thing Amber said at the wedding. She kind of leaned into me and said, ‘Do you and Stephen ever fight?’ I responded, ‘We sometimes have an argument,’ and she was like, ‘No, Gina, like really fight?’” Deuters said. “I think there is a part of Amber that [believes] fighting is passion. It means there’s sparks, fireworks [in the relationship]. [Amber] is someone who is always used to getting what she wants. She is quite entitled and I think she made big demands in their divorce.”

Deuters alleged that when Heard didn’t get a big enough settlement following their split, she launched a vendetta against Depp. “When [Amber] was denied those demands, I feel she was like, ‘I am not going to get what I want, so I am going to destroy you.’”

As part of their settlement, both parties agreed to a non-disclosure agreement and Heard secured a $7 million payday, which she pledged to donate to two charities the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Last month, Terence Dougherty, chief operating officer of the ACLU, said that the organization had only received $1.3 million in her name.

“We learned she was having financial difficulties,” Dougherty said (via PEOPLE).

Deuters went on to add that her husband wasn’t a fan of the Aquaman actress, saying that he referred to Heard as a “sociopathic show pony.”

“He certainly doesn’t regret it,” she said. “Stephen, at the end, was quite literally the mediator … no one else wanted to deal with Amber, and Stephen would be the only person she could talk to.”

Deuters briefly testified last month telling jurors in the Fairfax County, Va., courthouse that she had never seen Depp display any form of violence when he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. “I just know that Johnny wouldn’t hit a woman,” she said.

But her testimony was stricken and she was asked to leave the trial when she conceded to Judge Penney Azcarate that she had watched portions of the trial online.

During her testimony last week, Heard painted a picture of an allegedly controlling and abusive Depp, who, as he was known to the world as one of Hollywood’s biggest film stars, was a Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde-like “monster” behind closed doors.

Heard spoke about allegations that Depp abused her with a liquor bottle during an explosive fight in 2015 in which he allegedly threatened to “f—ing kill me.”

“I didn’t know if the bottle he had inside me was broken,” she said. “I couldn’t feel it. I couldn’t feel anything.”

Another time, Heard described Depp’s tantrum when he accused her of flirting with someone at the 2014 Met Gala in New York.

“He shoved me down on the sofa and at some point he whacked me in the face. I think that was the first time (where I thought), ‘Is this a broken nose?’ I remember my nose being swollen, discoloured and red.”

When he took the stand last month, Depp was forced to admit his past drug abuse as he alleged that Heard abused him and severed the tip of his finger.

“She has a need for violence. It erupts out of nowhere,” Depp said.

But Deuters said Depp has no regrets about airing personal details of his tumultuous relationship with Heard in public.

“The fight to clear his name is ultimately for his children, as painful and as ugly as it is,” she told Page Six. “He has finally felt his voice has been heard and that means a lot to him.”

Depp, 58, is suing Heard, 36. for $50 million, claiming that her 2018 Washington Post op-ed defamed him when she described herself as a survivor of domestic abuse. The article never mentioned the Pirates of the Caribbean star by name, but Depp maintains the article implied he was the abuser and impacted his acting career.

Heard has counter-sued for $100 million, arguing Depp smeared her by calling her a liar.

The trial resumes Monday.
