Depp filed for a new defamation trial in Virginia on Monday, following the defeat of a previous defamation case involving ex-wife Amber Heard. An opinion piece by Heard for the Washington Post in 2018 on her experience speaking out against sexual abuse is being sued by Johnny Depp for $50 million defamation. #MeToo and the lessons she learned from it were also discussed. Heard didn’t name Depp in the article and didn’t go into great detail about their relationship.

According to the woman who spoke at the event, “Like many women, I had been harassed and sexually abused as a teenager.” ‘I didn’t think of myself as a victim,’ I said. ” I felt the full weight of our culture’s anger towards women who speak up when I became a public figure two years ago,” she wrote.

Johnny Depp And Amber Heard Court Battle Revitalize Their Careers

Actor Johnny Depp is suing the publisher of the British tabloid The Sun and its executive editor Dan Wootton in London’s High Court for calling him a “wife-beater” in a 2018 article. In November 2020, Johnny Depp’s claim was dismissed. Tabloid reports were “largely accurate,” according to the judge. Additionally, Depp was denied an appeals process by the judge. In 2015, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married for 15 months. Heard filed for divorce from Depp in 2016 after claiming he had assaulted her.

Refusing to accept any of the accusations against him, Depp claims he never hit her. In one of the more bizarre counterclaims, Depp alleged that Heard had thrown human feces on their bed in their Los Angeles residence. Additionally, Heard testified in favor of The Sun’s publication in court.

An incident in which Heard claims Johnny Depp threw her to the ground and strangled her for three days while filming Dead Men Tell No Tales in Australia is detailed in one of the incidents.

Heard allegedly threw two vodka bottles at Depp after learning that he was negotiating a post-nuptial arrangement, which Depp claimed caused him to break a finger. The opposite is the case with Heard, who says he lost part of his finger after he slammed his phone into a wall.

Heard dropped the abuse claims against Depp just days before the hearing on the restraining order and agreed to a $7 million divorce settlement with him. In a joint statement at the time, Depp and Heard recognized that their relationship was “volatile” and that neither of them intended to harm the other. In the announcement, it was further mentioned that the divorce settlement money will be given to charity.

At the time of his trial, Depp was still being used as the face of one of Dior’s scents; he was criticized for it. A statement issued by Depp claims that his ex-wife painted on “paint-on injuries” that “witnesses and surveillance footage prove she did not possess each day of the prior week” in May 2016, when she appeared in court on domestic violence allegations.
