In 2018, the Sun tabloid claimed that the actor beat Amber Heard. Then Johnny Depp sued the publication for libel. The actress accused her ex-spouse, with whom she was married from 2015 to 2017, of вЂњthree days of physical abuseвЂќ in 2016. According to her, the actor at that time took drugs and drank a lot. Depp categorically denies that he was violent towards his ex-wife.
Hearings on this case going on all summer and the day before the London court made a decision. Johnny Depp lost. Judge Andrew Nicola did not believe that Depp did not commit violence against his ex-wife.
вЂњPlaintiff (Depp) was unable to persuade the libel claim ... The Defendants (Sun and News Group Newspapers) have demonstrated that what they have published is largely correct. I came to this conclusion after examining the details of the defendants mentioned. 14 incidents, as well as the arguments of the plaintiff, вЂњthe judge said.
In addition, the actor demanded monetary compensation for the damage to his reputation. However, Johnny's request was denied.
