Johnny Depp may receive $ 50 million from Amber Heard if his defamation lawsuit is upheld

The litigation between ex-spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will not end in any way. And it looks like Johnny can make good money on his ex-lover. So recently, a judge allowed Depp to file a $ 50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber.

In fact, this American actor filed a defamation lawsuit back in 2018. Recall that then in the Washington Post an article was published by Amber, in which she told that she had become a victim of domestic violence. And although she did not specifically name Johnny in the article, after their split, she accused him of domestic violence.

Depp is suing The Sun newspaper, which named him as a “wife beater” for alleged domestic abuse of Amber during their marriage (2015-2017). But in November 2020, a UK court dismissed his claim. The Virginia judge allowed Depp to continue the trial, despite Amber’s request to close the case, which was rejected. It happened on Tuesday August 17th and it looks like Johnny could fight to restore his reputation, as well as get a tidy sum. After all, Hollywood began to boycott Depp because of his legal issues.
