A lawsuit between the actor Johnny Depp, who portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean, and his ex-wife Amber Heard, whom the actor was allegedly abusing, both physically and emotionally, has been going on since 2016. They both returned to court a few days ago. Depp denies the allegations, and his lawyers describe Heard as "liar obsessed with her public image, who has been living and breathing this role for years now and she is preparing to give the performance of her life." writes the BBC and The Guardian.

 

The lawsuit between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard now continues. On Sunday, the pair met in court again, over an alleged defamation by the actress from 2018. At the time, she described herself to the Washington Post as a "public figure representing domestic violence," and although she did not mention Depp, she allegedly damaged his reputation and career. The actor is now suing Heard for $ 50 million for defamation of character.

 

"Mrs. Heard created the role of the victim because Johnny Depp asked her for divorce. She is obsessed with her image, preparing to give the performance of her life" said Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez, adding that Heard was the aggressor of the whole relationship.

 

The actress' lawyers, on the other hand, argued that the actress had to endure years of emotional, verbal, but also physical abuse from Johnny Depp, who now wanted to "ruin her career." The actress is suing her ex-husband for $ 100 million.

 

Actor's older sister, who, together with Depp, faced the abuse of their mother as a child, also took part in the lawsuit. "Mom screamed and screamed. Sometimes she hit our dad too," said Christi Dembrowski, adding, that Depp had never resisted his mother's aggressive behaviour. According to her, the actor is a very gentle and loving brother, son and father, whose behavior changed only when he met Amber Heard. "Suddenly he looked sadder," she said.

 

According to Dembrowski, Heard often insulted Depp and as an example brought up a sentence that stuck with her, after Depp was offered an advertising campaign for Dior. "Amber Heard told him, 'Why would Dior want to do business with you? You have no style, you are an old fat man."

 

Litigation will continue for the next seven weeks.
