Ohnny Depp Loses in Court over Abuse Claim
After an explosive courtroom battle, Johnny Depp has lost his libel lawsuit over a 2018 narrative that described him as a”wife beater” during his marriage to Amber Heard. On Nov. 2 a London judge ruled that the post from the U.K’s Sun newspaper was”substantially accurate,” citing 14 incidents of alleged violence against Heard which came to light during the trial from July. “Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced,” said a Sun spokesperson, while Depp’s lawyer called the decision”faulty” and”bewildering,” incorporating Depp intends to appeal. The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 57, along with the Aquaman celebrity, 34, married in 2015. Heard accused him of domestic abuse in 2016; Depp denied the claims, and they settled their divorce in 2017. Depp’s $50 million U.S. defamation lawsuit against Heard is continuing.
