Actor Johnny Depp files appeal against Amber Heard’s libel decision
American actor and musician Johnny Depp filed an appeal against a court decision in a libel case against ex-wife Amber Heard – he had to pay the actress two million dollars. This is reported TMZ.
Depp considered wrong the Virginia jury’s decision that he had slandered Heard through his attorney, Adam Waldman. Earlier, the human rights activist told the media that the actress lied about the quarrel, which allegedly led to the destruction of relations with Depp.
The actor stressed in the appeal that he should not be held responsible for what his lawyer said. According to Depp, the actress also failed to prove that Depp made the statement with malicious intent, which is contrary to the libel suit.
Earlier in October, Amber Heard again filed an appeal against a court decision in a libel case against Johnny Depp, according to which she had to pay him $ 10 million. On appeal, 16 grounds were presented, which included “lack of clear and convincing evidence”.
