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.
Amber Heard Vs. Johnny Depp: Wednesday’s Testimony
All eyes will now be on the video testimony of Kate Moss, who used to live with Depp and dated the actor between 1994 and 1997. Kate Moss was invited for testifying about the claim that Heard made. Amber Heard echoed that she hit Johnny to protect Whitney Henriquez, her sister. Heard had testified that Whitney was standing near a staircase and immediately remembered the rumors that had spread about him pushing Moss down a flight of stairs.
During the trial, Johnny’s legal team looked pretty happy when Kate Moss got mentioned. That wasn’t a good sign for Amber. Then again, it was clear that she was going to have to face tougher questioning during the next phase of the proceedings.
