New twist in the case Amber Heard – Johnny Depp. Six months after the end of the trial for defamation between the two actors which shook the United States, the Australian still does not intend to admit defeat. As a reminder, the latter was ordered to pay ten million dollars to her former companion. To try to save him from paying such a sum, Amber Heard said he had officially filed an appeal, in the hope that the jury will reverse its decision.

The Aquaman actress, now 36, said she filed her appeal earlier this month. The actor accused her of defamation for a Washington Post article published in 2018 in which she claimed to have been the victim of “domestic violence”, which was therefore rejected by the court. It was Amber Heard’s lawyers who revealed the terms of their appeal. Within the 68 pages of it, the latter contest in particular the decision of the judge to have excluded certain evidence from the file, including notes from therapists who, according to them, document the allegations of abuse of their client. They also claim that the trial should have taken place in California, where the couple lived together, and not in Virginia, where the Washington Post hosts its servers, which would pose an ethical problem.

The actress’s lawyers also returned to the domestic violence complained of Amber Heard. “The trial court wrongly prevented the jury from considering several separate instances in which Amber Heard reported abuse by Johnny Depp to a medical professional.” According to the lawyers, here is what should happen: either the jury verdict is overturned, or Johnny Depp agrees to drop all charges against his ex-girlfriend, or a new trial will take place.

But the least we can say is that Johnny Depp does not intend to let it go either. The Pirates of the Caribbean star actor has also decided to appeal against having to pay the two million dollars in damages to Amber Heard for defaming one of his lawyers in a Daily mail article dating back to the year 2020. Since the end of the trial, if Amber Heard has decided to withdraw from the media world, Johnny Depp has produced an album with artist Jeff Beck this summer, in addition to preparing for a new role, that of Louis XV , in Maïwen’s next film.
