Johnny Depp & Amber Heard Case Timeline
In 2015, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard get married. Amber is 28 and Johnny is 51 back then. Almost a year later, Heard filed for a divorce citing irreconcilable differences and seeks restraining order on the grounds of domestic violence. Later, photos of Amber’s bruised face and Johnny’s aggressive video surfaces on the internet and Heard denies her involvement with the leakage of the said video. Johnny Depp pays $7 million for settlement and Amber donates it all to charity.
Johnny demands court sanction from Amber as she has allegedly been defaming Johnny for publicity. The court denies the sanction but both the parties continue to speak ill against each other in interviews. Johnny Depp finally files a lawsuit against Heard for defamation and sues The Sun for calling him ‘wife-beater’. Johnny Depp accuses Amber Heard of domestic violence, affair with Elon Musk, and negatively impacting his career.
Allegedly, Johnny Depp has mentally, verbally, and psychologically abused Amber Heard. Shoved her, choked her, and beaten her on several occasions. On the other hand, Johnny Depp accuses Amber Heard of violence, saying she cut his finger, burnt him with cigarettes, and even defecated on his bed, intentionally.
Celebrities in Jeopardy
A video of James Franco, the Spider-man actor, where he is seen entering the elevator along with Heard can be subpoenaed. Allegedly, Heard was abused by Johnny before entering the elevator and Franco can clarify whether it is the truth.
Dan Wootton, executive editor of The Sun, can be in a tough spot for calling Johnny Depp a ‘wife-beater’ and also for questioning Warner Bro’s decision to cast him in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie.
Aquaman franchise may also suffer significantly as Amber Heard plays the lead female protagonist in the movie. Disney, who has been associated with Johnny Depp for a long time can also get majorly affected if Johnny gets defeated in the case.
Winona Ryder, Johnny’s ex-fiancé, and Vanessa Paradis, Johnny’s first wife, stated that Johnny is neither a violent man nor a wife-beater. Their careers may suffer if their statements are falsified in the future. Paul Bettany, who plays the role of Vision in the ‘Avengers’ franchise, has also been dragged in the case. There is evidence that there was an exchange of messages where Johnny Depp has complained about Amber’s behavior and talked about drug use.
The case has become nastier with every hearing. The stars have made the entire situation an international sensation by defaming each other publicly. This week, it will be Amber Heard’s turn to take a stand and present her side of the case. She will enact as her own witness and testify against Johnny Depp in the court.
