The Hollywood icon has given him first interview on the matter to British GQ for their November cover story.
Depp and Heard's divorce was finalised back in January 2017 following the actress citing physical abuse at the hands of her then-husband when he "violently attacked" her in their LA home.
Insisting the "truth will come out", Depp vehmently denies all the claims - saying he was turned from "Cinderella into Quasimodo".
"It hurts. The thing that hurt me is being presented as something that you're really as far away from as you could possibly get, you know? But to... To harm someone you love? As a kind of bully? No, it didn't, it couldn't even sound like me."
"So, initially, I just kept my mouth shut, you know? I knew it was going to stick on me and it would get weirder. Keep going, you know? Go nuts. I ain't going to get into a pissing contest with someone about it."
"Spit out what you need to spit out and, you know, my attorneys will take care of the rest. I never went out and spoke about the sh*t."
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor, who said he's willing to walk away from fame, confessed that he felt his reputation fell.
"Listen, I know I was never going to be Cinderella – I know this and accept it," he mused.
"But it felt like within a very, very short period of time that suddenly this version – for lack of a better word – of Cinderella had been immediately turned into the beast. He's Quasimodo. I could feel people look at me differently, because of the accusations towards you."
"And then people start putting things in magazines: "He's insane. He needs to take a sanity test..." You know, ludicrous stuff. But the only thing that I could do was know what I still know."
