Depp v Heard Trial Update

Attorneys for Heard sought to undermine Depp’s lawsuit against her yesterday by spending hours in court

focused on his drinking, drug use, and text messages to friends. Heard’s lawyers referenced the actor’s history

of trashing hotel rooms and the smashing of a bathroom sconce during an argument. Johnny Depp is also facing

a lawsuit filed by a member of a film crew who alleges assault in 2018.

The lawsuit against Heard alleges that she falsely portrayed him as a domestic abuser and ruined his

lucrative acting career. Heard’s attorneys argue that Depp did indeed abuse Heard, both physically and sexually,

and claim he can’t deny it because he was often drunk and high to the point of blacking out.

Depp has argued that his movie career suffered after she wrote a 2018 op-ed piece in the Washington Post, which

prompted his libel lawsuit against Heard.
