The war has lasted for months and is not about to end yet. At the beginning of June, the Fairfax court in Virginia, the scene of the legal confrontation between the ex-spouses Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, delivered its verdict. The two actors were each condemned to pay a sum to the other for defamation. If the amount requested from Johnny Depp did not exceed $ 2 million, Amber Heard was condemned in a much larger way.
The star ofAquaman must pay no less than 13 million dollars. Decision which she finally appealed, believing that the jury present at the trial “made mistakes that prevented a verdict that was fair, just, and respectful of the First Amendment“. He would not have taken into account all the necessary elements that she had provided to them through her lawyers.
Unpublished documents (600 pages), including the DailyMail reveals excerpts, highlight the parts of the testimonies of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp that justice has not taken into account. We learn in particular that the lawyers of the actress had reported that the interpreter of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean suffered from “erectile dysfunction“According to what their client had explained to them, these problems were”at the origin of tantrums of a sexual nature” by Johnny Depp. By claiming to have been the victim of domestic violence on the part of the actor, Amber Heard had evoked a rape with a bottle of alcohol.
For their part, Johnny Depp’s lawyers had planned to use Amber Heard’s brief stripper past to win their case by revealing photos of her completely naked. A fact that Judge Penny Azcarate, in charge of the trial, did not want to take into account either. Just like the messages exchanged between Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson, also accused of violence and sexual assault by former companions, about Oonagh’s mother.
Two months after the end of the trial, Amber Heard decided to appeal the decision. The legal battle between the two actors is therefore far from over. And they are obviously ready to do anything to rally the court and the jurors to their cause.
