Just when we thought things could get any better, well it got worse. Johnny Depp on Monday officially lost the libel case against ex-wife Amber Heard. The British court bashed him by saying that all the allegations against him were true. And saved up ‘The Son’. After several years of claims and accusations, the court has concluded the win of The Son. However, Depp seems to not agree with it. Check out everything you need to know about it.
Talking about how it all started in 2018, when a tabloid called ‘The Sun’ accused Johnny Depp of domestic violence and called him a wife beater. He then sued the tabloid. And Amber Heard seem to agree with the tabloid as she put a law suit against her ex wife for domestic violence. She even claimed that Depp used to give her death threats and use to assault her sexually.
Some Allegations From Amber To Heard
Heard mentioned that her ex husband has a monster side in himself. He has approximately hit her 14 times. By hit she means slapping, punching and even kicking her ass. Amber claimed that Depp has even given her death threats. And has said things like ‘I want to watch you get raped’. He used to drink and do drugs on purpose and behave like a monster. She says that she was in love with his clean and sober side. However, that isn’t the case anymore.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp first met in 2011 after which they started dating. They were in a relationship for several years after which the two got married in 2015. However, things started to take a different turn soon after the two got married. And the two decided to part their ways in 2016. Initially, a lot of rumours were made about why they got separated.
It was even claimed that the two couldn’t give enough time to each other due to work and hence failed to keep up things for one another. However, soon after Amber Heard sued Depp for domestic violence in late 2017, things got pretty clear. According to Amber, Depp used to physically abuse and assault her. Their fights use to get so dirty at a point that Depp has even sexually assaulted her by saying things such as ‘I want to see you get raped’.
However, this news was circulated all over the world when a famous group of newspapers, The Son published a similar news. The newspaper called Johnny Depp ‘Wife Beater’ it claimed several things at the point where fans got confused. And in Monday’s Trial, Johnny Depp lost the libel case against the newspaper and its the owner. So can now people call him ‘The Wife Beater’, I guess not since it’s not over yet, fans are waiting for Depp’s comeback.
Johnny Depp then took a bigger step by suing Amber Heard back for defamation. He put up a lawsuit worth $50 million against her. Many people were on Johnny’s side on this. Since he have heard Amber making fake stories and accusing people. However, this time it’s Johnny Depp who lost. He was called to the court on 2nd of November where he kept him point. However, the witnesses and Amber herself claimed that all the news against Depp are totally true.
Justice Andrew Nicol said that the defendants had proved that what they published was “substantially true”. The judge claimed that he should be proven guilty since he is the wrong one here. However, Depp is not here for it. He and his team has take the matter forward and claimed that the decision is flawed. And it seems like many people are standing for him. What do you think about it?
