Actor Johnny Depp has scored a major victory in one of the several cases involving his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. A judge in Virginia on Tuesday rejected Heard's request to throw out Depp's libel suit of two years. Depp is demanding $50 million from the actress after an op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post titled: "I spoke up against sexual violence – and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change."
"The great majority of alleged assaults" of Amber Heard by Johnny Depp were proved to sufficient standard, the judge said.
The "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" actor took the plunge Thursday, quickly racking up 1.4 million followers with a pair of posts.
