Amber Heard is hoping that the $50 million defamation lawsuit filed against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp will be dismissed by the court.

Depp previously lost his legal battle in the UK, where he sued a newspaper for calling him a “wife beater.”

Amber‘s lawyers filed a supplemental plea with the court, saying that the judgment in the UK proves that the statements made by the actress are true.

“Giving full effect to the UK Judgments necessitates a finding that statements in the op-ed published in the Washington Post are true – Mr. Depp committed domestic violence against Ms. Heard on many occasions, causing her to fear for her life,” Amber’s lawyers wrote in the filing (via Deadline).

They added, “Therefore, as a matter of law, Depp cannot prevail on any of his claims, and Depp’s Complaint against Ms. Heard should be dismissed in its entirety.”

The trial will not start until April 11, 2022 if it does end up going in front of the judge.

  • No way! If the judge is fair and honest she won’t let this happen the case should be presented.

  • Johnny Depp – you are a great actor and an even better human — keep up the good fight — Hollywood is EVIL and they will use a person for their own financial gain then dismiss them just as quickly
