Johnny Depp loses the case against The Sun.
His ex-wife causes major harm to his career, that is, Amber Heard. She is leveling various allegations against him. These two celebrities met on the set of The Rum Diaries and got married in 2015. Their relationship lasted till 2017. It was when Amber Heard filed for a divorce against her then-husband back in 2016. Then, the actress obtained a restraining order against Depp, and she accused him of physically and verbally abusing her.
This news led to many controversies, and then the world saw Depp being cast in the Fantastic Beats franchise while getting dropped out from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. But later in 2019, Depp sued Heard for the case of defamation over an op-ed she went on and wrote in the Washington Post. In a series of events, we also acknowledged Johnny suing The Sun for libel after running a piece in 2018 that dubbed the actor as a wife beater.
Judge Andrew Nicol says that he has enough evidence to find Johnny Depp guilty!
The trial started on the latter case back in July, and as of Monday morning, the decision was made. Andrew Nicol was the judge on these judicial proceedings, and he believes that The Sun’s piece from 2018 can be substantially true. He determined that there happened to be enough evidence to support Heard’s claim that Depp abused her.
The Judge even went on to say that these allegations have even had a negative effect on Amber’s career as an actor and activist as well. In his judgment, he also wrote that he accepts her evidence of the nature of assaults he has committed against her and how they must have been terrifying. He also accepts that Mr. Depp put her life in fear.
