Amber Heard RESPONDS To Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp suffered a major loss in the ongoing libel case against a UK tabloid who labeled him as a “wife-beater”, as #JusticeForJohnnysweeps social media.  Yet another legal blow for Johnny Depp, who was denied an attempt to appeal a court ruling that concluded he assaulted his ex-wife AmberHeard, leaving her “in fear for her life.”

But before we continue, we wanted to take a second to share that we will be talking about potentially triggering topics like assault and the alleged spousal abuse between Johnny and Amber, so please only continue reading if you feel comfortable doing so. 

As many fans know, Johnny has been involved in a libel lawsuit with UK tabloid outlet The Sun for nearly a year after they published a column back in April of 2018 calling him a “wife-beater” among many other claims.  

Following the three-week trial held last July, justice Andrew Nicol ruled against Johnny’s libel claim finding that the column’s claims were “substantially true.” Judge Nicol ruled that Johnny assaulted Amberon on a dozen occasions and put her in “fear for her life” three times during their marriage that ended after just over a year in 2016. 

The court hearing took place last Thursday's Johnny’s lawyers filed to appeal the ruling while claiming that Amber had an “unfair advantage” that boosted her credibility after she vowed to donate her entire $7 million divorce settlement to charity… in which she reportedly still has yet to do. 

The judge ultimately refused to grant Johnny permission to appeal, however, according to TMZ, Johnny’s legal team is now firing back once more as a spokesperson told the outlet that the evidence presented in his appeal  “further demonstrates that there are clear and objective reasons to seriously question the decision reached.” 

Presenting the complete irrefutable evidence of the truth

His lawyers also explained that they are looking forward to “presenting the complete, irrefutable evidence of the truth” in his other libel case against Amber where “she will have to provide full disclosure.” Speaking of his other libel case, you may recall at the time Amber filed for divorce in 2016, she filed a restraining order alleging that Johnny had been “verbally and physically abusive”. 

Over many court battles, the two privately finalized their divorce in January of 2017, but things took a turn the following year when Amber published an op-ed for the Washington Post detailing the domestic abuse she expressed that she endured in her lifetime, however she didn’t mention Johnny’s name. 

Johnny still didn’t take Amber’s piece lightly and sued her in a $50 million defamation lawsuit while in the midst of his UK libel lawsuit.  Trust me, I know, this is a LOT to take in…but if you’re still with me, it was also reported that Amber’s team has since spoken out upon receiving word that Johnny’s UK request to appeal was denied.  

In a statement given to Yahoo Entertainment, a spokesperson for Amber said, “We are pleased — but by no means surprised— by the Court's denial of Mr. Depp’s application for an appeal. The evidence presented in the UK case was overwhelming and undeniable.” 

The statement goes on to reiterate the verdict following the 12 occasions of Johnny’s alleged acts of domestic violence, adding, “Mr.Depp's claim of new and important evidence was nothing more than a press strategy, and has been soundly rejected by the Court.” Amber also addressed the “delay” in donating the $7 million, blaming the fact that Johnny filed a lawsuit against her that she has now “been forced to spend millions of dollars defending [his] false accusations against her.”
