He is demanding $50 million, she even $100 million in damages: actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard are currently fighting a mud fight in front of the court in Fairfax, Virginia. It’s about an article that Heard published in the Washington Post in December 2018, in which she writes about her experiences with domestic violence. The 36-year-old does not mention Depp’s name, but he still sued her for defamation and damage to his reputation.
With the civil process, he wanted to bring the truth to light and save his image, the actor said in court. It is questionable whether this will succeed. Because so many sordid details about Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s toxic relationship have come to light during the days of the trial so far, the trial could do more harm to both of them. The process began on April 12 and is expected to last around six weeks.
