- Actor Johnny Depp has suffered a new blow in his media legal battle with his ex-wife Amber Heard and his attempts to clear his name.
- His appeal to the Court of Appeal has been denied.
Johnny Depp continues in the media eye for the legal proceedings in which he has been involved for years as a result of his divorce from actress Amber Heard.
All kinds of details of the troubled marriage came to light last summer in the defamation lawsuit that Depp brought in the United Kingdom against the newspaper ‘The Sun’, and that finally reached a verdict against him.
The judge declared that it was “fundamentally true” that Johnny was a “female abuser” and took a stand for the media and the evidence presented by Amber Heard. As a result, Depp has lost several projects, including his important role in the ‘Fantastic Animals’ franchise.
Depp assured in his social networks that he was not going to give up “in his fight to tell the truth” and announced that he had appealed the sentence. Finally, said appeal was denied by the judge in November.
The actor, far from giving up, appealed to the Court of Appeals claiming that the judge had ignored evidence that contradicted Heard and wanting to introduce new allegations that his ex-wife had lied about donating the money from his divorce settlement to solidarity organizations. Amber’s response to these accusations can be seen in the video above.
However, now a new blow to Depp’s battle has just been known, and that is that his request to the Court of Appeals to grant him an appeal that leads to a repeat trial has been denied, according to the Associated Press.
The British Court has denied Depp the possibility of appealing the Supreme Court’s decision. Judges James Dingemans and Nicholas Underhill assure that the hearing was “complete and fair.”
The verdict claims that “the appeal has no real prospect of success and there is no other compelling reason for it to be heard.”
“It is clear from the reading of the judgment as a whole that the judge based his conclusions of all the incidents on his extremely detailed review of the evidence specific to each incident. In such an approach, there was little need or space for the judge would give weight to an overall assessment of Ms. Heard’s credibility,” the judges say.
