Johnny Depp’s Lawyers: Amber Heard Made Up Abuse Allegations for Press
A Hollywood drama unfolded in a Virginia courtroom as the first day of trial began in the defamation lawsuit Johnny Depp brought against ex-wife Amber Heard. Heard claimed in an op-ed written at the height of the MeToo movement that she was abused by Depp. His lawyers have painted her as a liar who made up the allegations to gain publicity for a movie she was starring in, and claim that Depp’s career was destroyed as a result. Heard’s lawyers contend that his career was already in free fall.
