Johnny Depp has sued ex-wife Amber Heard for $50 million after she wrote an editorial in Washington Post detailing her experience of domestic abuse. Amber, however, didn’t name Johnny in her op-ed.
The couple separated in 2016, when Amber filed for divorce and accused him of physically abusing her, but now Johnny has filed a lawsuit against her, in which he has alleged that she punched him in the face, according to documents obtained by The Blast.
Photos also surfaced of Johnny with a severed finger, and according to the portions of the court documents shared by The Blast, a month after the couple married in February 2015, Amber “shattered the bones in the tip of Mr. Depp’s right middle finger, almost completely cutting it off.”
According to The Week, Depp also submitted 87 surveillance camera videos to the court and 17 depositions of witnesses, including police officers. The evidence has turned tables for the investigation.
This new development has brought around a sudden change in attitude towards Johnny Depp on social media. Fans have been apologising to the actor for accusing him of abuse. Johnny is ‘overwhelmed’ with this outpouring of support, according to news reports.
What we see on twitter today is monstrous evidence for Johnny Depp's defamation case. The whole freaking world ADMITS that they believed her accusations, hence the reason they "cancelled" him, and he LOST freaking work from this! #JohnnyDeppisINNOCENT #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser

Johnny Depp is a survivor of domestic abuse from Amber Heard but because he’s a male nobody bothered to consider the evidence and nearly everyone on social media attacked him to ruin his life. Journalists should be ashamed about skipping the evidence just to fit their narrative.

This man has been attacked and hated for 3 years while he was the victim, but never stopped being the kind, gentle, sweet human being that he has always been. I'm so happy to see him healing from all the abused he suffered #JohnnyDepp pic.twitter.com/7kSRm6xWUF
