As Kate Moss Comes To Testify, Judge Dismisses Johnny Depp’s Plea To Reject Amber Heard’s $100M Counter-Suit

The judge in the case of Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard released a verdict to the public that he rejected Depp’s request to ‘dismiss’ the $100 million lawsuits filed by Heard last year. This happened a day before Kate Moss, the British Supermodel was about to step in to testify. Depp’s legal team argued that his former publicist didn’t act with “actual malice” when he stated in an interview with a tabloid that Heard had made up the abuse allegations. But judge Penney Azcarate panned Depp’s motion, saying there was more than enough evidence for the case to move forward. For example, the judge noted there was evidence that Waldman could have known whether or not Heard abused Depp, rather than making claims about her character that lacked proof.

Amber Heard Vs. Johnny Depp: Tuesday’s Testimony

Heard’s claims on Tuesday focused on her loss of between $45 and $50 million in earnings. Just the day before, Heard’s witness echoed that Amber didn’t get any salary jumps as other actors did. In fact, Jessica Kovacevic, Amber’s agent, echoed last week that the makers decided to chop down Heard’s role in Aquaman because of the negative reputation of the actress in the market. However, Walter Hamada, DC’s president, denied the assertion. The president echoed that Heard’s contract was not renegotiated because of her performance in Aquaman and not because of her trial.
