Johnny Depp's ex-managers, with whom he is involved in a lengthy legal battle over misappropriation of funds, have said that he consciously tried to cover up evidence that pointed to him being physically violent towards ex-wife Amber Heard.

"However, TMG is informed and believes that Depp was fully aware that he was illegally bringing his dogs to Australia, and when confronted heavily pressured one of his long-term employees to 'take the fall"'.

This is not going to fix the image of Johnny Depp.

The court documents cite texts that were obtained by ET, which claim to document a conversation between Heard and Depp's longtime assistant, who allegedly apologizes for Depp's "disgusting" behaviour, at one point referring to an incident in which Depp allegedly kicked Heard.

It resulted in the most awkward "apology video" of all time, Depp and Heard apologising profusely for their mistake in breaching Australian quarantine laws.

Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has threatened Johnny Depp with perjury charges in the latest episode of Australia's so-called "war on terrior".

The incident sparked global headlines when Joyce said the dogs had better "bugger off" back to the United States or he'd arrange to have them put down. While the former couple's divorce finalized in January 2017, details on their troubled relationship continue to arise as Depp sues The Management Group for claims that they mismanaged his money.

In the legal documents filed by The Management Group (TMG) (via People), Depp's former managers stated that the actor was knowledgeable about the rules of the country when it comes to bringing in pets.

"If the allegation is correct, there's a word for that - it is called perjury", he told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. "Ms Amber Heard appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court in Queensland on 18 April 2016 to answer charges alleging the illegal importation of her two dogs into Australia in April 2015", a description from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture said. Depp denied that he was abusive, and Heard dropped that claim when they settled their divorce, pledging her $7 million settlement to charity.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull saw the lighter side, quipping to a Sydney radio station: "I wouldn't want to come between Johnny and Barnaby. sort of the pirate meets the cowboy".

Amber Heard ended up pleading guilty to one count of falsifying border protection documents as she didn't declare the dogs.
