Back in 2016, Johnny Depp was accused of domestic abuse by his then wife Amber Heard. Now the actor has filed a $50 million lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp has filed the lawsuit on March 1 in response to a Washington Post op-ed written by Amber in which she alleged Depp of domestic abuse. He has filed a defamation case against Amber and provided evidence that he was at the receiving end of abuse and not Amber.
Johnny accused Amber of punching him and throwing a vodka bottle at him, severing his middle finger and shattering the bones.
As per the complaint,
“The op-ed depended on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her,” the complaint reads, adding that the piece’s implication that Depp was a domestic abuser are “categorically and demonstrably false.”
“Ms. Heard’s false allegations against Mr. Depp have been conclusively refuted by two separate responding police officers, a litany of neutral third-party witnesses, and 87 newly obtained surveillance camera videos.”
A part of the complaint also mentions the incident of May 2016,
” Unaware that members of Mr. Depp’s security team were mere feet away, Ms. Heard falsely began yelling, ‘Stop hitting me, Johnny’. The interaction culminated with Ms. Heard making false allegations that Mr. Depp struck her with a cell phone, hit her and destroyed the penthouse. There were multiple eyewitnesses to this hoax.”
Fans came out in support of Johnny Depp post the complaint. Stay tuned for more updates!
