Johnny Depp Applies To Court Of Appeal To Overturn Amber Heard Ruling

Johnny Depp Applies To Court Of Appeal To Overturn Amber Heard Ruling

Johnny Depp has applied to the Court of Appeal in an attempt to overturn the ruling that he assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Last month, the High Court rejected Depp's claim that The Sun newspaper committed libel when they called him a 'wife-beater' for the alleged abuse - which he denies.

The 57-year-old's claims were dismissed with Mr Justice Nicol saying that News Group Newspapers (the parent company of The Sun) proved what was in the article was 'substantially true'.

Mr Nicol also refused Depp permission to appeal in the same month, saying: "I do not consider that the proposed grounds of appeal have a reasonable prospect of success."

The judge found that Depp assaulted Heard on 12 or the 14 occasions and put her in 'fear for her life' three times, including one that the 34-year-old actor described as a 'three-day hostage situation' in Australia in March 2015.

The Mirror reports that Mr Nicol found Heard was also in fear for her life during incidents on the Eastern and Oriental Express in South East Asia in August 2015 and again in LA in December of the same year.

According to The Guardian, it is not known what Depp's grounds of appeal are, or when a decision on his application for permission to appeal is likely to be made.

After losing the libel case, Depp promised he would appeal the decision in a statement which read: "The surreal judgement of the court in the U.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.

"My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time."

Johnny Depp Said He Wanted Amber Heard Replaced In Aquaman

published at3 months ago

As well as losing the case, Depp was also asked to quit his role in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.

Mads Mikkelsen will be replacing him in the film and taking on the role of Gellert Grindelwald.

Speaking of the casting, the 55-year-old Danish actor explained how his performance will differ to Depp's, saying: "Well it's going to be me, so that's a difference."

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he continued: "No, this is the tricky part. We're still working it out. There has to be a bridge between what Johnny did and what I'm going to do. And at the same time, I also have to make it my own.

"But also we have to find a few links [to the previous version of the character] and some bridges so it doesn't completely detach from what he's already masterfully achieved."
