Who Is Suing Whom In This Trial?

After the divorce was finalized and settled, Amber interviewed with the Washington Post in 2018 and said, “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change,” “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”

 Though Amber didn’t mention it was Depp specifically, everything was clear in the eyes of the viewers. In this statement, Amber was clearly hinting that she survived an abusive marriage. Moreover, her first remarks about Depp’s domestic violence were back in May 2016. She even got a temporary restraining order and after the divorce settlement in 2016, she got a permanent restraining order for staying safe against any sort of violence.

So, Amber claimed to have deposited her $7 million settlement money between two institutions she supports, the ACLU as well as the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. However, it was heard that she did none of these donations.

Soon, things started turning sour. Gossip outlets like TMZ reported that Heard was lying because of financial gain. On the other hand, Depp was losing on big projects like his key role in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. 

Undoubtedly, the relationship was very messy. But the lewd comments about him being an abuser were affecting Johnny’s career and reputation. Depp was called a “wife-beater” by the UK newspaper, the Sun. Though he had lost that case it seems like Johnny is winning the current case.

In March of 2019, Depp had proceeded to file a defamation lawsuit against her now ex, Amber for $50 million. Amber then countersued him for $100 million and the case has continued since then.

The Current Updates About The Johnny & Amber Trail

Nothing is clear, in fact, it is totally complicated. Amber was seen submitting emails, messages, diary entries, and even photos of her bruises. She highlighted the pattern of abuse that happened whenever Depp was highly intoxicated by drugs or alcohol.

The first case was dated back in 2013. Amber claimed that once her closest friend tried to hug Depp but the star was seemingly high on mushrooms. He supposedly grabbed the friend’s wrist and even said that he would hurt her.

The next big story was about the Australia 2015 trip. Amber joined Depp for filming the Pirates of the Caribbean Sea franchise. Amber claimed in last week’s testimony that Johnny broke her nose, sexually assaulted her and she had bruises for a few days. On the other hand, Heard and Deep both agreed that Depp’s finger was severed during her stay with him. Even Heard was accused of being violent. 

Just before the UK trial commenced, Amber said, “I’m sorry that I didn’t … hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched. I don’t know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you’re fine, I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you.”

And Depp responded to the statement by saying, “I just couldn’t take the idea of more physicality, more physical abuse on each other.”

Moreover, Amber’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehot, presented to the court that Amber used Milani Cosmetic’s All-in-One Correcting Kit for concealing all her bruises. As a matter of fact, the company did disclose that the product Amber’s lawyer specified was made available for the public in 2017 whereas the abuse happened between 2012 to 2016. So, in no way, she could have used that product.

It has been seen multiple times that Amber’s stories aren’t lining up and she was caught red-handed lying multiple times.

The defamation case is still continuing and the viewers are willing to know more. A huge number of supporters are there for Johnny cause they believe in his truth. So, only a few more days, and the truth will be coming out soon!
