Amber Heard wrote an article against Johnny Depp
Let us tell you that in the year 2018, Johnny Depp filed a defamation suit against the actress in Fairfax County Circuit Court after Amber Heard wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post. In this article, without naming Johnny, Heard gave the title – Public Figure Representing Domestic Abuse.
During the hearing, both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were present in the court. In court, Johnny Depp said that this article was written in the context of allegations of domestic violence leveled against him by Amber Heard in 2016, which indirectly tarnishes his image. Not only this, Johnny Depp also denied the allegations, in which it was claimed that he had abused Amber Heard.
There was a lot of debate between the two sides
In the hearing that began on Tuesday, Amber Heard’s lawyer said that we will show evidence that Johnny Depp physically and sexually assaulted Amber Heard on several occasions. He told the jury members that if they focused on the basics of libel law, they would not need to referee themselves in the couple’s turbulent marriage.
He also said that the 2018 article didn’t hurt Johnny Depp’s reputation at all. Allegations of abuse became public only two years ago. He said that Depp’s fast-paced career was the result of his drinking and drug abuse, which made him an unreliable commodity for Hollywood studios. Johnny Depp’s team of lawyers argued before the jury that Amber Heard’s article was an example of “Defamation by Implication”.
After hearing both the sides, the jury has fixed the next hearing of this case on next Monday. A civil jury of seven members and four alternate members have been selected to hear the matter on Monday.
