Amber Heard shares public message for Johnny Depp before “confronting his ex-husband in court”

Amber Heard shared a public message before “confronting” her ex-husband Johnny Depp in court.

The defamation case is scheduled to begin Monday (April 11) in Fairfax, Virginia, and Heard expressed hope that once completed, the couple could “move on.”

This latest lawsuit comes from a complaint filed in 2019 by Depp, who claims that Heard defamed him in an article he wrote about The Washington Post in 2018.

In the article, she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” He demanded $ 50 million in compensation (£ 38.4 million).

Herd countered, accusing Depp of orchestrating a “slander campaign” against her and describing his own lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”. He demanded $ 100 million in compensation (76 76.8 million) and immunity from Depp’s claims.

Prior to the trial, Herd told her Instagram followers: “I will be offline for the next few weeks. “As you may know, I will be in Virginia where I will face my ex-husband Johnny Depp in court.”

He continued: “Johnny is suing me for an article I wrote The Washington Post, in which I narrated my experience of violence and domestic abuse. I never named him, I probably wrote about the price paid by women who speak out against men in power. I continue to pay this price, but I hope that when this case is over, I can move on, like Johnny.

“I have always had a love for Johnny and it hurts a lot that I have to live the details of our past life together before the word,” Herd said.

“Right now, I recognize the continued support I have been fortunate enough to receive over the years and in the coming weeks I will rely on it more than ever.”

In November 2020, Depp lost a defamation lawsuit in London against him Of the Sun. The publisher after a 2018 title described him as a “husband hitter” in relation to his Heard.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star also lost an attempt to overturn the Supreme Court ruling in March 2021.

However, Depp scored a rare legal victory after trying to find out if Herd kept her promise to donate the proceeds of her divorce settlement to charity.

The following year, Depp suggested that he be boycotted by Hollywood. At the time of his comments, the US was the only region that did not release his latest film, Minamata. He was also replaced as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise by Mads Mikkelsen.
