Exes Johnny Depp and Amber Heard each arrived at a courthouse in London on July 7 for the actor’s libel case towards ‘The Sun,’ which stemmed from allegations of abuse made by means of Amber.
Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard had been observed arriving one after the other on July 7 to a London courthouse because the actor’s libel trial towards News Group Newspapers (NGN) and The Sun‘s govt editor Dan Wootton started. Heard, 34, wore a pink face overlaying and a black midi get dressed and heels, maintaining fingers with two girls as she made her means into the courthouse. Depp, 57, coated up with a black bandana and aviator sun shades, and waved to photographers as he stepped inside of for the primary day of the three-week trial.
The Pirates of the Caribbean megastar is suing British paper The Sun‘s parent company and Wootton over an article they published in April 2018, which called him a “wife beater” and alleged that there’s “overwhelming evidence” that he attacked Heard all through their marriage. Depp vehemently denies the allegations, which come with accounts of an alleged 14 separate incidences of home violence, like Heard’s tale a couple of battle that resulted in Depp slicing off the end of his finger (he disputes how he misplaced his finger).
In the April 2018 column, Wootton askedd how JK Rowling may well be “genuinely happy” with Depp being solid within the Harry Potter by-product movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, making an allowance for the allegations made by means of Heard. NGN is protecting the item as true, pronouncing that Depp used to be allegedly “controlling and verbally and physically abusive towards Heard, particularly when he was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs” between early 2013 and 2016, when their marriage ended.
Depp is serving as the primary witness in his libel trial. He attempted and failed to dam her from being within the court all through the courtroom court cases, in keeping with our sister website, Deadline. However, all over the trial, the courtroom will pay attention from two of Depp’s different exes, Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder. Both mentioned that Depp used to be by no means violent towards them.
Depp has a separate libel lawsuit in Virginia, filed towards Heard herself, over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post. In the piece, which by no means names her ex-husband, Heard wrote that she gained “the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.” That trial is scheduled to start in January 2021.
