Johnny Depp has lost his case, a sensational libel against The Sun and Ex-wife Amber Heard.
It is now found that the star is a wife-beater just after known by her mouth after claiming that he had hit during their relation to Amber Heard about 14 times.
The 57-year-old actor and star of Pirates Of The Caribbean are facing financial ruin and reputation in tatters.
Johnny sued the publisher of The Sun, and they published a headline: “Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?”
In the ruling yesterday on 2nd November, the claim of Deep was dismissed by Mr. Justice Nicol said that the”publisher had proved what was in the article to be “substantially true”.”
The judge said: “The claimant has not succeeded in his action for libel…”
“Although he has proved the necessary elements of his cause of action in libel, the defendants have shown that what they published in the meaning which I have held the words to bear was substantially true.”
“I have reached these conclusions having examined in detail the 14 incidents on which the defendants rely as well as the overarching considerations which the claimant submitted I should take into account.”
They said in a statement: “For those of us present for the London High Court trial, this decision and Judgment are not a surprise.”
“Very soon, we will be presenting even more voluminous evidence in the U.S. We are committed to obtaining Justice for Amber Heard in the U.S. Court and defending Ms Heard’s Right to Free Speech.”
Newspapers spokesperson said: “The Sun has stood up and campaigned for the victims of domestic abuse for over 20 years.”
“Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and we thank the judge for his careful consideration and thank Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court.”
