Amber Heard challenges Johnny Depp to a TV interview

She gave Johnny Depp an amber alert.

Embattled Aquaman actress Amber Heard may have lost her legal battle — but she’s not giving up yet: she’s challenged Johnny Depp to do his own interview if he has a problem with her bombastic NBC performance Dateline, in which she doubled down on allegations that he had abused her.

Heard, 36, issued the challenge on Friday, just hours before her explosive interview with Today show host Savannah Guthrie was scheduled to air.

“If Mr. Depp or his team has a problem with this, we recommend that Johnny himself sit down with Savannah Guthrie for an hour and answer all of her questions,” a spokesman for Amber Heard said in a statement to The Post.

Her comments follow a 20-minute preview clip of Peacock, in which Heard gave the NBC show numerous documents from a doctor that represented “years, years of real-time explanations of what was going on.”

“There’s a binder full of year-long notes from 2011 from the beginning of my relationship that were made by my doctor who I reported the abuse to,” Heard Guthrie said on the segment. “Her notes represented years, years of real-time explanations of what was going on.”

"If Mr. Depp or his team have a problem with that, we recommend that Johnny himself sit down with Savannah Guthrie for an hour and answer all of her questions." an unidentified spokesman for Amber Heard said in a statement.

The documents shown on screen describe a 2012 case in which Depp allegedly “beat her, threw her against a wall and threatened to kill her,” according to Dateline.

Eight months later, Depp reportedly “ripped her nightgown, threw her on the bed,” according to the program, and in 2013 he reportedly “threw her against a wall and threatened to kill her.”

However, Heard’s legal team was unable to admit the documents into evidence in the high-profile trial because the judge ruled they were “hearsay.”

A rep for Depp, 58, has since responded to the interview, telling Dateline that the Donnie Brasco actor just wanted to get on with his life after winning the defamation case.

“It is unfortunate that while Johnny tries to move on with his life, the defendant and her team are repeating, reinventing and restating matters already decided by the court and a verdict that the court unanimously and unequivocally decided in favor of Johnny,” they said in a statement.

The bombastic statements come after Depp was awarded more than $10 million in his defamation case earlier this month. A jury in Fairfax, Virginia found Heard liable for defaming Depp in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence. The jury also found that Heard was defamed by one of Depp’s attorneys but was awarded only $2 million in damages. However, experts say it will be a while before the actress has to pay any money.

Nonetheless, in Tuesday’s interview teaser, Heard claimed that she “stands by every word” she said in her testimony before the defamation trial.

Surprisingly, despite the alarming allegations of abuse she made against Depp, the star insisted she still “absolutely” loves the Finding Neverland star.

“I loved him with all my heart,” the Rum Diary actress said of Depp. “I tried my best to make a deeply broken relationship work, but I couldn’t. I have no bad feelings or ill will toward him at all.”
