Former spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are currently facing off in a $100 million defamation lawsuit. Moreover, in the trial of April 12, 2022, Amber Heard’s lawyers had called Johnny Depp a “monster”. Note that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard accuse each other of defamation. It all started in 2018 when the Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued his ex-wife for defamation after she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse without naming him in the Washington Post. The actor had claimed $50 million in damages.
Of course, the Aquaman actress counterattacked by also filing a complaint for defamation. Except that she claimed $100 million in damages. The trial between the two spouses in the court of Fairfax, Washington, will surely be held over several weeks. Note also that the lawyers of Amber Heard claimed that the actor had verbally, psychologically, physically and sexually assaulted their client, according to The Internet user.

It was during the cross-examination of this artist that Amber Heard’s lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, questioned him about texts exchanged between the two men in October 2016. “Do you remember that Mr. Depp told you Ever said he hoped, in basic terms, Amber’s decomposing corpse to decompose in the fucking trunk of a Honda Civic?” Elaine Bredehoft asked.
“Yeah, I see it here, so obviously yeah, it was said. It was written,” Isaac Baruch replied. The attorney then asked, “Do you remember Mr. Depp calling Amber Heard a ‘cunt’ and saying it was his fault?” The actor’s friend replied: “It’s written there, I see it”. “This bitch ruined the so cool life we had for a while,” Isaac Baruch then read, referring to a passage exchanged with Johnny Depp. The trial is still ongoing…
