Amber did not name Depp in the article, but she accused him of domestic violence during her divorce from Depp in 2016, which Depp denied at the time.
Depp’s lawyer said the article falsely suggested she was physically and sexually abused by Depp while the actor was married.
The allegations of sexual assault by Depp, which had not been made public earlier, were dismissed by Depp’s lawyers, accusing Amber of “proclaiming to be a victim but in fact the perpetrator of domestic violence”.
The lawyer noted, “Heard has never made such an allegation against Depp before — it was never part of her 2016 allegations of abuse. So, what changed? When she realized what she claimed (she was a victim of domestic violence) the severity of the perpetrator), she panicked and claimed she had been sexually assaulted.”
Depp’s lawyer said the only medical report they had during their marriage was that they had an altercation after the marriage, in which Amber threw a vodka bottle at Depp, which shattered and caused Depp’s finger to be cut off. Down.
