Published on:

After three years of relationship and one of marriage, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorced in 2017 but their legal problems did not end there, as both denounced the other on more than one occasion.

It was in 2019 when Johnny Depp filed a lawsuit against Amber Heard for defamation, due to the article that the actress published in The Washington Post, ‘I spoke out against sexual violence and faced the wrath of our culture. That has to change.’ Although this opinion text never mentions the protagonist of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, it refers to the relationship she had with him and the ways in which she was attacked by her former partner.

However, the latter has only mentioned that these accusations are false, despite the fact that Depp’s legal representatives had evidence in this regard.
