Johnny Depp To Testify In Defamation Trial Against Amber Heard
The trial between Johnny Deep and his ex-wife Amber Heard is still ongoing, with the actor and star of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies suing his ex-wife for defamation. Today, Tuesday, April 19th, it’s Depp’s turn to testify against Amber Heard.
In 2018, Heard wrote a review in the Washington Post, where he stated that he had been the victim of abuse, although she never mentioned Deep directly. That article greatly impacted the actor’s career, who started this lawsuit against his ex-wife days ago and is still going on. It is expected to last for weeks between witness statements and the statements of the protagonists of this trial, i.e., Depp and Heard.
In Deep’s case, he is likely to make his first statements this week in this trial, which already had its opening arguments and some witnesses. We can still expect more suspense about this trial and what more facts both actors can bring to this trial.
