He’d stayed quiet and hidden for a long time but now, it seems like Johnny Depp is ready to fight until the end! The actor is reportedly ready to do everything in his power to win his legal fight against former wife Amber Heard and clear his name.
There is no denying that when Heard accused Depp of domestic abuse, his good reputation was replaced by a horrible image of a ‘wife beater,’ something he vehemently denies ever being.
That being said, he’s had the last couple of years to really prepare his case and now, Johnny will not back down no matter what.
The end goal? Completely restoring his reputation.
As fans know, Johnny Depp has filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex for allegedly lying about the abuse and ruining his career.
However, not only did she supposedly do that, at this point in the case, it appears that she was the abusive one and Depp has plenty of evidence, including tens of surveillance camera clips.
Furthermore, he’s made another step towards proving his innocence not too long ago since Amber’s stylist declared that she did not have ‘two black eyes’ from being attacked by Johnny as she claimed.
One source tells HollywoodLife that ‘Johnny is preparing for a long legal battle with his ex Amber. His response to her latest motion to dismiss (transfer venue) is due on Monday, May 20, after which Amber’s reply will then be due May 31. Johnny will lay out proof of his allegations that Amber and her friends carried out a series of abuse hoaxes targeting him.’
‘With no hearing date yet set, and a series of motion victories behind him, he has already put a lot of time and energy into clearing his name from her nasty allegations. He is being patient and persevering in his fight against Amber over the truth, and Johnny will not back down.’
