Johnny Depp Has Lost His Libel Action Against Publishers Of Sun Newspaper
The actor had sued after the British newspaper printed an article calling him a ‘wife beater’- something he’s always denied.
It’s been one of the biggest libel trials of the 21st century and laid bare the chaotic lifestyle of Johnny Depp and his personal battles with drugs and alcohol .
The Hollywood actor said he wanted to clear his name against claims of domestic violence against his ex-wife actor Amber Heard during their marriage.
A High Court Judge has found that what was in the article was “substantially true”.
The Sun newspaper said in a statement domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and thanked Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court.
A lawyer for Ms Heard said the decision and judgement are not a surprise.
