New evidence resurges as Johnny Depp files a $50M defamation lawsuit against ex-wife, Amber Heard.
Actor Johnny Depp wants to clear his name. In the court document, he cites 87 surveillance videos, 17 depositions under oath, photo evidence of his injuries, and Amber Heard’s admission under oath of her various attacks towards her ex-husband. The actor claims that the domestic violence allegations against him were false and he demands a jury trial.
In two of the photo evidence released to the public, Johnny was seen with a black eye, and another with a graphic image of his finger partially chopped off.
As the darling of the #MeToo movement that advocates for sexually abused survivors, Amber has had many supporters siding with her after her divorce. The actress’ career kickstarted, even becoming the female lead alongside Jason Momoa, in one of the biggest and most successful superhero blockbusters, Aquaman, in 2018.
While Amber’s career was soaring, JD’s was at a decline. Only a few of his closest friends and family stood by him.
