Having lost a lawsuit against the tabloid The Sun, which called the 58-year-old Johnny Depp "a man who beats his wife," the actor does not intend to give up. Back in March, the star of "Pirates of the Caribbean" went to court to prove that his 35-year-old ex-wife Amber Heard embezzled seven million dollars received during her divorce from him in 2017. Then the actor's lawyers argued that Heard was lying, saying that she used this money to help the American Civil Liberties Union, which supports women, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
The other day, the Page Six portal reported that the actor won in this process against his ex-wife. Now a New York court has ordered the American Civil Liberties Union to disclose information about the real donations of the actress. This information will show whether Hurd lied under oath about her donations.
Johnny Depp himself, perhaps for the first time since the beginning of legal battles with his ex-wife, is really happy with the court's decision. This victory means a lot to him, because information about Heard's donations could once have influenced the outcome of a libel case against the British press, which Depp lost. In the event that Amber's lie is revealed, the actor will be able to get a retrial.
Mr. Depp is very pleased with the court's decision,
- this is how the actor's lawyers commented on the latest news.
Recall that during one of the meetings in the case of Depp against the British tabloid about libel, where Amber acted as the main witness, the actress said that she had already made the first transfer to the account of a charity organization. Johnny's representatives soon called Heard's words at the trial "a calculated and manipulative lie." Later, Amber's lawyers confirmed that their ward had already committed several transfers, but had not yet managed to transfer the entire promised amount of seven million dollars.
