Hollywood actor Johnny Depp, known for his commendable performances in films, by playing characters that stand out of the ordinary, lost his libel case to ex-wife Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp was forced out of the "Fantastic Beasts" movie franchise days after losing a libel case in Britain against a tabloid that branded him a "wife beater."
Moss took the stand in March via video link to deliver a few minutes of testimony, during which she denied Heard’s claim that Depp had pushed her down the stairs in the Nineties.
The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star has spent millions on a bitter legal battle with his ex-wife, the 36-year-old actress Amber Heard.
The reports of Heard's selling her house came just days after she filed notice to appeal against Depp in the defamation case. The appeal filing came despite Heard being denied her request for a new trial.
Mikkelsen replaced Depp as Gellert Grindelwald for the third instalment, "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore," after Depp resigned at the request of studio Warner Bros last year.
Public relations experts say that Johnny Depp’s career is “on the upswing”. Since the June defamation trial, he’s performed with Jeff Beck, signed a seven-figure deal with Dior, and been cast as King Louis XV in a new feature film. To paraphrase LL Cool J, don’t call it a comeback. Johnny Depp’s been here for years. Still, I’m puzzled.
Lawyers for the two sides are making their closing arguments following six weeks of blistering mutual accusations of domestic violence between the couple.
After six weeks of testimony and three days of deliberation, on 1 June, the jury sided in favour of Depp, finding Heard liable for defamation.
