We shall see...lawyers can keep things tied up indefinitely if they want too.
Hopefully, it will all be over soon. :hope:

The saddest thing is Johnny never wanted to be part of (what he called) 'the circus' and now, all those years later he finds himself as centre act juggling a load of balls. :tear:

Normally I am all for you being right in what you say, Snoopy-girl :love: But this time I really, really hope, you're wrong! That the lawyers won't be allowed by the judges to drag this out indefinitely :ohno: Tara is quite right after all, so I fervently hope, Johnny can get out of all that legal stuff soon and get back to what he love to do, and we love to see the result of :love:

Johnny Depp Files New Legal Docs Claiming Proof He Never Struck Amber Heard

22nd January 2019

TMZ.com

Update

2:33 PM PT -- Depp's lawyer, Adam Waldman, tells TMZ, "The dozens of Eastern Columbia Building security camera video files we recently obtained, coupled with multiple newly obtained eyewitness affidavits and sworn depositions taken in 2016, leave no doubt that Amber Heard faked the abuse claims that underpin the Sun's defamation against Mr. Depp." Again, Heard maintains Depp struck her with a phone and his hands.


Johnny Depp has just filed legal docs citing new evidence that he never beat then-wife Amber Heard ... a claim she made during their acrimonious divorce.

Depp filed the docs in the U.K., where he's suing The Sun for defamation in connection with an article calling him "wife-beater." The article referenced an altercation between Depp and Heard on May 21, 2016 at their downtown L.A. home. Amber says he threw a phone at her face and then pummeled her and she took photos of her injuries.

Depp's new documents include witness statements, saying they saw Amber in the apartment building on May 21 and saw no red marks or bruising on her face. One witness says she didn't see the mark until 6 days later.

Amber also took photos of broken glass in the apartment, claiming Johnny hurled glass and shattered it in the unit. One of the witnesses states in his declaration, "There was no smashed glass that I noticed in the apartment at the time."

Amber has adamantly stuck by her version of events, and Johnny has implied she injured herself after the fact and took pictures.

He also cites in the documents 2 cops who responded on May 21 and gave 2 depositions stating they saw no injuries on Amber. The cops claim Amber said nothing had happened.

Again, the new filings were in connection with his defamation lawsuit against The Sun. Depp says "They must have made a positive decision to present a totally one-sided picture, leaving out my side of the story and pretending it either did not exist or was not worth considering."

He should have done this at the time she first made the claim - fought her right from the beginning.

Yep, should of. I just don't get the feeling the guy had the best financial expertise or legal expertise, and that is on both the people who worked for him, and himself. Ultimately you have to do 'due diligence' and check out things yourself.

I think perhaps he was so devastated and so broken-hearted he didn't want to hurt her back -- and maybe he never ever believed how far she would pursue it and how awful it would all be. He loved her and it would be hard to accept how cold and without conscience she was going to be.

I agree he was depressed and devastated. I was referring to the decisions that he made in terms of choice of financial matters and legal matters in years past. To me he got hit with everything all at once: death of parent, betrayal by someone he loved, and no one really "there" for him in terms of good financial handling and legal stuff. In the moment, none of it was his fault and I really didn't mean to imply that at all.

Notice in paragraph 7 the omission of the all-important word “no”! Should read:

“ . . . . multiple witnesses claim that on May 21, 2016, there were (no) visible injuries on Ms. Heard’s face . . . “
