Amber Heard's father threatened to shoot Johnny Depp during the couple's bitter divorce, according to a witness in the actor's defamation case.  

David Killackey, who worked on both Heard and Depp's classic cars at his California repair shop Performance Allison Transmissions in the wake of their 2016 split, claimed that Heard was abusive toward him and that her father, David Heard, made 'death threats' toward Depp in a phone call.  

Killackey's allegations were brought to light in the court battle over Depp's $50million lawsuit accusing Heard of defaming him by writing in a Washington Post op-ed that she was a survivor of domestic violence.  

She never named him in it but Depp claims that because their bitter divorce was so public, it inferred he had been violent towards to her - something he insists is a lie. 

Depp's lawyers say that Killackey's account proves that Heard was motivated by money to speak out against her ex-husband.  

In legal documents obtained by The Blast, Killackey described several 'extremely hostile' conversations with both Heard and her father after he approached them about paying for the repairs to their cars.

Killackey said the abuse began after he told Heard that all work on the cars would have to be paid directly, rather than through Depp's management.  

'The reply I received what can only be described as an extremely hostile response from Amber,' he said in the court documents. 

'I did my best to convey to her that I did not wish to get in the middle of the dispute between her and Mr. Depp. She did not receive this information very well. 

'Her first reaction was to verbally abuse me with expletives, threats and a continued rant over what she claimed was an unfortunate financial downturn of her personal finances caused by Mr. Depp. 

'At one point she said "you motherf***er, you're screwing me!"'

Killackey said Heard told him she had a legal agreement with Depp which stipulated that he was responsible for paying her bills, 'and that if I expected payment then I should forward bills to Mr. Depp.' 

He said that he stopped communicating with Heard directly after a 'very unpleasant' call, and soon began to hear from her father instead.  

He said that David Heard 'became very bitter toward Mr Depp' after his daughter's separation.   

During one phone call about the repairs, David Heard allegedly told Killackey: 'That f***ing piece of s*** is f***ing me too because I'm supposed to get 10
