Johnny Depp Loses Libel Case
Justice Andrew Nicol has just ruled that the Pirates of the Caribbean star has "not succeeded in his action for libel." Johnny first sued The Sun for accusing Johnny of being a "wife-beater."
According to ET Canada, the ruling mentioned that Johnny had "proved the necessary elements of his cause of action in libel," but The Sun explained "what they published in the meaning which I have held the words to bear was substantially true.
A lot of Johnny and Amber's toxic relationship has come to light because of this case including Amber's many admissions of being violent with Johnny. She has also admitted to fabricating photos to frame Johnny and been caught on tape admitting to being physically violent with her ex-husband.
The 34-year-old Aquaman actress claims Johnny was the violent one to which 57-year-old Depp says her claims are "sick" and a "hoax." Even his ex-wife and previous longtime partners have come to his defense stating he never laid a finger on them. Johnny's tough lawyer David Sherborne publicly stated Amber is a "wholly unreliable witness and frankly a compulsive liar."
Much damning information about the couple's toxic relationship has come to light, including Amber allegedly slicing off Johnny's fingertip, Johnny's alleged drug-fueled graffiti messages to her, allegedly throwing a cell phone at her, Amber's recording admitting "I can't promise you I won't get physical again," and the infamous moment when Johnny referred to his wife as "Amber Turd" after finding human feces in his bed left by Amber and her friend.
Johnny has also sued his ex-wife in Virginia for $50 million because of the Washington Post story. This case will begin in 2021.
