    Johnny Depp Vs Amber Heard: Most Shocking Moments Of Defamation Trial Till Now

    The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard case is riddled with twists and turns and every hearing is unfolding in a never seen or heard before manner. As they return to court after a week-long hiatus, the defamation trial seems to be getting more and more bizarre.

    It was in 2018 that Johnny Depp filed a defamation suit against Amber Heard, alleging that she falsely portrayed him as a domestic abuser in an op-ed piece, which in turn harmed his lucrative acting career. While Heard never mentioned Depp’s name in the article, she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”.

    After Johnny Depp hit her with the lawsuit, Amber Heard filed a 100-million-dollar countersuit against Depp, claiming that he defamed her by referring to her article as “fake” and a “sexual violence hoax”.

    This sounds just like a courtroom drama, right? Here’s a list of bombshells dropped during the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial:

Let’s drown her before we burn her!!” Depp defended himself by saying that it was a reference to a Monty Python sketch about burning witches.

    He said, “This is a film that we’d all watched when we were 10, and it’s just irreverent and abstract humor. That’s what we were referring to in those texts.”

    The actor added, “Ms. Heard despised Mr. Bettany because mainly we had become such close friends. For her, he was a threat and would take me away from her. If Paul Bettany was getting attention from me, that was a showstopper. It would cause all kinds of unpleasantries.”
