Amber Heard Claims Cops Missed Key Evidence In Alleged Beating

5/31/2016 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0531-amber-heard-lapd-tmz-04Amber Heard is getting trashed because cops didn't do their job properly, or even worse lied to protect Johnny Depp ... so claims sources connected to the actress.

The sources say Amber had visible marks on her face when 2 officers responded to the 911 call on May 21. They claim the officers either didn't see the marks or are lying to protect Depp. They say Amber's injuries became more pronounced as time went on ... especially a day later.

LAPD officials insist the 2 cops did indeed look for injuries and found none.

We contacted 2 doctors who routinely treat trauma injuries who both said an iPhone hurled at someone would cause immediate swelling and some discoloration. BTW, in addition to allegedly throwing the iPhone, Heard claimed in legal docs he pulled her hair, struck her and violently grabbed her face.

As for the officers claiming there was no evidence of any broken glass in the apartment ... our Heard sources say that's because Amber met the cops in an adjoining unit, and they never went to the one where the incident went down.

And Amber's sources say she's the only one who swore under oath her version of events were accurate.  Amber's people say Johnny's team had 24 hours notice before the TRO was heard, and he never filed a sworn declaration.

EXCLUSIVE

0531_Justin-Martin_gettyJustin Martin -- who co-starred with Zac Efron in 'High School Musical 3' -- will be locked up for 18 months after pleading guilty to 5 gun charges ... TMZ has learned.

The Suffolk County D.A.'s office tells us Martin appeared in court Tuesday for sentencing. In addition to the jail time ... he also got one year probation, during which he has to lay off drugs and booze and stay away from the scene of the crime.

As we reported back in July ... Martin ran away from cops in Boston and pointed a gun at officers before he was chased and captured. He pled guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a gun and ammunition, carrying a loaded gun and firing a gun near a building.

Martin avoided a stiffer penalty -- the D.A. was gunning to lock him up for 3 years.

EXCLUSIVE

0531_britney_spears_malibu_vacation_rental_launch_2Britney Spears didn't hit too much traffic Memorial Day weekend because she spent it in a very affordable and reasonably priced Malibu beachfront crib.

Britney stayed at an ultra-modern, secluded pad just on the other side of the Santa Monica Mountains from her Thousand Oaks home. We're told the going rate per night on Airbnb is only $8,000. See, affordable ... for Brit, but she didn't have to pay because they hooked it up. 

The property looks amazing ... two open-air buildings plus a pool directly on the beach. Best of all, the 5-bedroom estate is ultra secluded.

Perfect for a little R&R ... when you have 9 and 10-year-old boys bringing over friends.

What a day!!

It's now official ... Mark Salling got booted from his starring villain role in "Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets" -- just days after his child porn indictment ... TMZ has learned.

We're told production will start re-shoots of Salling's scenes, and Shankar is personally footing the bill for it. We're told Shankar is going a step further ... donating a percentage of profits from the project to an abused children's charity.

The former "Glee" star was indicted last week on 2 counts of child porn. Shankar reacted quickly, saying ... "Child abuse is a cultural cancer whose tentacles penetrate far deeper than a single celebrity caught with illicit images on his computer."

We're told Salling's replacement has not been cast yet.

Amber Heard 'Ear-Witnesses' Say She's a Liar Johnny Wasn't Near Her

5/31/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0527_amber_heard_johnny_depp_gettyAmber Heard screamed to Johnny Depp in the middle of their argument last week, "Stop hitting me!!!" Problem is ... when she screamed Johnny was more than 6 yards away -- so claim 2 witnesses.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ, 2 security guards -- Jerry Judge and Sean Bett -- were standing in the entryway inside Johnny and Amber's apartment unit, giving them space during the argument, when out of nowhere they heard Amber scream.  

The guards say "within a second" they bolted into the living area and saw Johnny in the kitchen and Amber on the couch in the living room -- it's an open floor plan. Both guards say Johnny was at least 20 feet away from her.

We're told, according to Johnny, both he and Amber knew the guards were in the entryway and the scream was a badly executed attempted setup.  

The guards -- both of whom are expected to testify next month during the restraining order trial -- also say throughout Johnny and Amber's 15-month marriage, she was the one who flew into rages ... screaming at him, throwing bottles, and charging him. They claim they frequently had to pull her off Johnny.

Amber claims her alleged injuries were caused when Johnny hurled an iPhone at her. The 2 guards support what the responding cops say ... she had no visible injuries. Amber claims there was broken glass on the floor and even submitted photos in her legal docs, but the guards insist there was no broken glass, and the cops say nothing was amiss.
