Months after Johnny Depp’s legal victory in his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, around 6000 court documents pertaining to the high-profile case have been unsealed, revealing a ton of information that was not in the public domain till now.
Newsweek has reported that things have turned ugly for Johnny as many of the new revelations cast him in unfavourable light. "One of the documents shows that Johnny had sworn in a declaration that Amber never caused him any injury, which is contrary to what the actor claimed in court," the report shared.
The defamation suit judgment was viewed as victory for Johnny and the actor got a lot of public sympathy and support as well. He has now managed to get an album under his name and a seven figure Dior deal. Many of his fans crowdfunded a campaign to unseal court documents related to the case.
According to a Guardian report, it was an effort “to get more dirt on Amber”. However, many of the findings actually painted Johnny in a bad light. A Newsweek report cites one of the unsealed document that says Johnny swore in a declaration that Amber never hurt him.
"Mr. Depp does not allege a specific cause of action for intentional or negligent infliction of emotional distress; does not assert that Ms. Heard's actions caused him a specific psychiatric injury; and does not claim that Ms. Heard's actions caused him to experience unusually severe emotional distress," the document read. In court, Johnny had alleged that Amber had abused him during their two-year marriage. Many have called these new findings ‘damning’ for Johhny.
Other revelations from the unsealed documents include Johnny’s former assistant saying the actor 'kicked' Amber on a flight, claims that tapes and photos submitted by him were manipulated, and disturbing text messages between Johnny and singer Marilyn Manson, who has been accused of abuse by over a dozen women.
