Have passed already two years since Johnny Depp (55 years) and Amber Heard (32) decided to break their relationship. But it is now when the actor has accused his ex-wife through a lawsuit for defamationafter she wrote and published an article in the journal The Washington Post. A column where the own Amber is autocalificaba of “domestic violence victim” -in the united States there is no legal concept of gender-based violence-.
At no time during the article, he appoints Johnny Depp, but, yes, it refers to situations which suggest that the text is written thinking of the actor. “Two years ago, I became a public figure representing the domestic abuse and I felt the full force of the rage culture that exists against women who raise their voice,” says in the column. Amber also noticed how this time he lost a role in a movie and how a campaign of a global craze decided to break the contract with her. He also says that, has been witness to the way in which institutions protect the men accused of abuse.
Depp came to be asserted on several occasions that he never abused his wife, claiming that it was she who exerted physical violence against him. In the lawsuit states that it is all part of a plan developed by Amber to grow in your career as an actress. For this reason, the actor has initiated a lawsuit for $ 50 million for defamation. In the same terms, ensures that the complaints lodged by his former spouse caused him to lose the role as Jack Sparrow in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean.
Eric M. Georgethe lawyer Heard, has shown that legal cases taken by the actor are just to silence her: “Do not accept the truth about their abusive behaviour”. For his part, the spokesperson of the defense of Johnny, Adam Waldman, replied by saying that they are waiting to present “overwhelming evidence from videos, photographs and witnesses” that will help the laundering of the image of Depp.
The marriage of the actors lasted 15 months. They were married in February 2015 and divorced in January of 2017. Their romance began when they met in the filming of The Run Diary (2011) and after several years showing in front of the camera their complicity and beauty, committed in 2014. But once it’s over the love, came the public disputes and legal actions. Now again confronted in a very public war that seems to have no end.
