This news was based on another from the Daily Mail, published at the beginning of last year, in which audios were leaked in which, supposedly, the ‘Aquaman’ actress publicly admitted to being the aggressor of her ex-partner. Later, it was learned that said audios were manipulated, because, during the actor’s trial against the newspaper The Sun , Heard admitted to having punched him to, according to the actress’s account, defend his sister.

For now, the judicial war continues and it will be in July when the beginning of the end begins. The latest update is that the actress’s legal team has filed an appeal to have the defamation lawsuit filed by Depp in a US court dismissed and avoid going to trial.
The reason that his lawyers argue is that, because he was an actor in ‘Fantastic Animals’ he lost his lawsuit against The Sun also for defamation, this sentence handed down by the United Kingdom courts should also apply in the United States.

Depp’s attorney, Benjamin Chew, called this move a “desperate attempt.” The lawyer also recalled that Heard’s legal team had already tried to have the lawsuit dismissed a total of three times in the last two years. It is estimated that the trial will last four weeks and it will be at the beginning of next year when the verdict is delivered.
