Pirates of Caribbean star Johnny Depp has now filed a defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. He claims that her domestic abuse allegations were just an elaborative hoax.
Johnny Depp files lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard
The documents filed claim that Amber Heard’s allegations were “conclusively refuted by two separate responding police officers, a litany of neutral third-party witnesses, and 87 newly obtained surveillance camera videos.”
The lawsuit also cites an editorial written by Heard for The Washington Post in 2018. Heard shared her alleged domestic abuse. Johnny Depp’s lawsuit says, “Ms. Heard purported to write from the perspective of ‘a public figure representing domestic abuse’ and claimed that she ‘felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out’ when she ‘spoke up against sexual violence.’”
What exactly happened between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard?
While the editorial didn’t mention Johnny Depp’s name, it was obvious for readers due to the public disputes in the recent months. It was certain that she was describing her ex-husband Johnny Depp. The attorney of Depp that the article’s validity “depends on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”
Not only is Depp stating that Heard’s allegations are false and also says that Heard abused him. The lawsuit cites an incident where Heard threw a glass bottle at him. This resulted in Depp’s hand getting severely injured. It even got a surgery later.
The lawsuit says that the photos posted by Amber Heard showing her injuries suffered from Johnny Depp were nothing more than a ruse. The documents also have two police officers testifying under oath that they saw no injuries on Heard’s face.
