Watch the video: Johnny Depp does not want to be called "woman thug".
Johnny Depp appeared in court in London on Tuesday. The American actor has sued the British tabloid "The Sun" for defamation. The paper had described him as a "woman bat", referring to Depp's marriage to actress Amber Heard. She also appeared on Tuesday at the start of the process. The then couple had married in 2015, after 15 months Amber Heard had filed for divorce, accused Johnny Depp of violent abuse and obtained an injunction against him. The Sun had written that Depp had used violence against Heard at least 14 times, such that she feared for her life. Depp denies the allegations, his lawyer speaks of fabricated lies. The trial is expected to take three weeks, and both Depp and Heard will be heard.
