It’s a small victory for Johnny Depp in his fight between him and Amber Heard. The interpreter of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean obtained Wednesday, November 3 the right to access the phone of his ex-wife. This decision was approved by the Virginia court. Six years earlier, Amber Heard had accused the 58-year-old actor of domestic violence and had shown photos of his injuries.
With the actress’ phone, Johnny Depp hopes he can prove that the accusations against him are false. In 2016, during a hearing, he claimed that Amber Heard had falsified the photos where she appeared with a black eye. He notably lodged a complaint for defamation to the tune of $ 50 million. For his part, the interpreter of Mera in Aquaman had also declared to have had a broken nose and a split lip.
Amber Heard would have retouched several photos thanks to an application
In the court file, Benjamin Chew, the actor’s lawyer claimed that Amber Heard would have “fabricated photos that she used to obtain a temporary restraining order and a sum of $ 7 million”. Another important fact, the Los Angeles police would have noted “no injuries on Amber Heard” after the actress’s appeal for physical assault.
According to the first information, the preliminary investigation shows that a certain number of photos have been retouched thanks to an application. A small victory for the father of Lily-Rose Depp who lost his case against the tabloid The Sun on March 25.
