Johnny Depp Gives New Evidence That He Didn't Abuse Amber Heard
In court on Tuesday, Johnny Depp, while in the United Kingdom, gave evidence that he did not abuse his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who framed him as an abuser in her op-ed following their divorce.
Johnny has claimed that Amber framed him as an abusive "monster" which led to a widespread shaming campaign based on false reporting. Time Magazine reported today that the actor sat in the courtroom over an article from The Sun that referred to him as a "wife-beater."
As it was previously reported, Depp sued the owner of the newspaper, News Group Newspapers, over an article that framed Johnny Depp as an abusive man who regularly beat his wife, Amber Heard. Depp has vehemently denied the story.
According to the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, Heard told the world that he was an awful monster and she was scared for her life when near him. He claimed her allegations were not true.
Depp and Heard first met while filming the 2011 movie, The Rum Diary, before tying the knot four years later in February. They divorced in 2017, and have since been accusing each other of abuse. Some of Depp's former girlfriends have shown up to support him, including Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder.
Both women have released statements in defense of Johnny Depp. The article in question is The Sun's report on Johnny Depp being cast in the latest JK Rowling film of the time, Fantastic Beasts. The article referred to him as a "wife-beater" and said it was shameful that he found work.
Heard has accused Johnny of abuse on fourteen different occasions, which Depp has argued are all untrue. Moreover, the actor says that Amber or one of her friends defecated on his bed.
Depp and his team described Amber as a "highly complex and aggressive individual" who would often succumb to uncontrollable mood swings and create arguments out of thin air. He claims, in addition to her abrupt circular arguments, Heard would often become enraged to the point of violence.
