Hollywood sensation Johnny Depp needs no introduction. The 58-year-old actor enjoys a colossal fan following worldwide because of his unforgettable performances throughout his career.
If you are a diehard fan of him, you must be aware of the defamation case trial on ex-wife Amber Heard.
During the trial on Wednesday, the actor shared that Disney was skeptical of casting him before his wife’s letter came to the public in 2018.
If you live under a rock and are totally unaware of this case in the actor’s life, don’t fret. We have made things relatively easy for you.
What’s the case all about?
The couple began dating in 2009 and got married in the year 2015. But the actress publicly revealed in 2013 that Johnny had hit her.
So the defamation case is in response to Amber Heard’s statement published in a newspaper in 2018. She portrayed herself as a public figure who has been the victim of domestic abuse.
A year later, in 2019, Johnny filed a libel case against his ex-wife, accusing her that the op-ed had ruined his career. Unfortunately, the case gets more cumbersome as you delve deeper into it.
In the case, Johnny Depp has testified in court that he was dropped out of Disney after the letter was published. But now Heard’s lawyer had something different to show in the court apropos of what Johnny claimed.
During the cross-examination, the 58-year-old actor agreed that he would never work with Disney ever, even if they came up with $300 million in hands.
To let you know that Johhny has filed a defamation case against Amber Heard (his ex-wife) for 50 million dollars. He claims that the accusation against him is entirely fraudulent. However, in the letter published in 2018, nowhere mentioned Johnn Depp.
But the actor firmly believes that the letter has jeopardized his career no matter whether his name was mentioned or not. Even if the case ends, the allegations will still be with him forever.
No matter whatever is happening inside the court, the audience outside has already made its decision. Johnny Depp is getting tremendous support from fans over social media.
