Johnny Depp Did Beat Amber Heard, Rules Court
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were engaged in an ugly court battle a few months ago. The real battle was between Johnny Depp and new tabloid The Sun. In one of their articles, The Sun called Johnny Depp a wife beater. This was after Amber Heard had claimed during her divorce that she was a victim of domestic abuse in the hands of Johnny. Johnny was offended by the wife beater tag and filed a defamation case against The Sun. However, now the court has declared that The Sun was right in calling out that Johnny Depp had beaten Amber Heard during their marriage.
Johnny Depp Tarnishes His Image As Amber Heard Wins
There was a lot at stake during the trials. While Amber Heard maintained that she was beaten up by Johnny multiple times, Johnny denied all the allegations and called himself a victim of domestic abuse in the hands of Amber. So a judgement against Amber would have tarnished her image completely as a domestic abuser. However, Johnny has to take the blow as he has now been ruled by court as a wife beater. Excerpts from The Sun’s news said, “Mr Justice Nicol threw out Depp’s defamation case after finding our story – which had always been staunchly backed by Ms. Heard – was accurate.
What Does The Judge Have To Say Regarding Johnny Depp Beating Amber Heard
Justice Nicol was the judge who was handling the defamation case by Johnny against The Sun. He was convinced that Johnny had domestically abused Amber. As per The Sun, Johnny had beaten Amber 14 times during the course of their marriage. However, the judge accepted 12 cases out of the 14 claimed. He said, “Although he has proved the necessary elements of his cause of action in libel, the defendants have shown that what they published in the meaning which I have held the words to bear was substantially true.”
Judge Puts An End To Months Of Drama
The Johnny-Amber-The Sun case had kept everyone glued to newspaper as it garnered a lot of media attention. In the end, the judge is convinced with his decision after a thorough inspection of all 14 cases. He said, “I have reached these conclusions having examined in detail the 14 incidents on which the defendants rely, as well as the over-arching considerations which the claimant submitted I should take into account.”
