Johnny Depp made headlines for all the wrong reasons in 2016 after claims of domestic abuse were filed by former wife, Amber Heard. The allegations stated that the Aquaman star suffered physical assault from then husband, Johny Depp leading to their messy divorce. New claims have however now surfaced claiming that the allegations filed against the Pirates of the Caribbean were all false.
According to a report in E!Online, Johnny Depp has new evidence that he believes will prove he never beat his then-wife Amber Heard. The actor's attorney, Adam Waldman revealed, "Today we filed a partial list of evidence that we will use to disprove the fraudulent underlying allegations against Mr Depp," reported E!Online.
This evidence will be used in Depp's libel case against a U.k tabloid, that called the star a 'wife-beater'. Depp is now suing the UK tabloid for "£200,000 pounds in addition to £10,528 in legal fees, as well damages to be assessed by the court’.’ PEOPLE stated.
Included in the filing by Dep to disprove Heard’s domestic violence claims were references to "dozens of video security tapes," as well as "eyewitness statements, newly discovered sworn affidavits and deposition transcripts from 2016, and text messages between the Sun and their #metoo source."
Waldman added, "We continue to take profound witness statements in this matter."
If the ‘evidences’ gathered by Depp supports his claims, the messy battle between Amber and Depp is far from over.
