Johnny Depp testifies at defamation trial denying any abuse 

Actor Johnny Depp continues his testimony in a Fairfax, Virginia court in his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The Pirates of the Caribbean star denies the abuse allegations while recounting his personal hardships in the courtroom.

In his roughly three-hour testimony on Tuesday, Depp spoke in detail about Heard’s allegations of domestic abuse, his history with substance abuse and his experiences growing up with an abusive mother.

During his testimony, Johnny Depp made the following statement:

“About six years ago, Ms. Heard made some quite heinous and disturbing ― brought these disturbing criminal acts against me that were not based in any species of truth. It was a complete shock … It just didn’t need to go in that direction. Nothing of the kind had ever happened, though there were arguments, things of that nature. But never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any woman in my life.”

The actor, known for his work in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, is suing Heard for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she wrote about her experience with domestic abuse. She did not name Depp in the piece, but he claims it cost him lucrative film work.

Summary of Prior Events

To sum up years worth of legal issues, after Depp and Heard’s divorce, The Sun ran an article claiming Depp to be a ‘wife-beater” and helping Heard’s career by allowing her to claim victimhood due to their tremulous relationship. Heard later went on the write an Op-Ed Article with The Washington Post besmirching Depp’s name and making accusatory claims against the actor further tarnishing his career and causing him to be dropped from several large franchise opportunities including Pirates of the Caribbean and Fantastic Beasts. 

This legal dispute is still an ongoing matter. We will post updates when more information becomes available.
