Depp, Heard tuloy ang giyera sa korte
Tuloy ang court battle ng ex-Hollywood couple na sina Johnny Depp at Amber Heard.
Sinulong ng 58-year old actor ang defamation lawsuit laban kay Amber dahil sa sinulat nitong article sa Washington Post noong 2018 tungkol sa “surviving domestic violence.”
Hindi pinangalanan ng 35-year old actress si Depp sa article, pero inakusahan niya ng domestic violence ang aktor noong 2016.
Ayon sa PEOPLE: “A Virginia judge granted the actor the right to pursue his lawsuit, denying Heard’s supplemental plea to dismiss the case after Depp lost his U.K. libel lawsuit against British tabloid, The Sun. In November 2020, Depp lost the case against the British tabloid that called him a wife-beater.”
In December 2018, sinulat ni Heard: “I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”
Nagsampa si Depp ng defamation lawsuit laban sa kanyang ex-wife for $50 million. (Ruel Mendoza)
