Depp ‘falsely ac­cused’ in Beasts row

Khaleej Times - City Times - - HOLLYWOOD HUSTLE -

JOHNNY DEPP SAYS he was falsely ac­cused in a con­tro­versy sur­round­ing his cast­ing in J.K. Rowl­ing’s Fan­tas­tic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindel­wald.

Al­le­ga­tions of phys­i­cal abuse sur­faced from his for­mer wife Am­ber Heard. “I’ll be hon­est with you, I felt bad for J.K. Rowl­ing hav­ing to field all these var­i­ous feel­ings from peo­ple out there. I felt bad that she had to take that. But ul­ti­mately, there is real con­tro­versy. The fact re­mains I was falsely ac­cused, which is why I’m su­ing The Sun news­pa­per for defama­tion for re­peat­ing false ac­cu­sa­tions,” ew.com quoted Depp as say­ing.

“Based on our un­der­stand­ing of ev­ery­thing, we are com­fort­able with our orig­i­nal cast­ing, and gen­uinely happy to have Johnny play­ing a ma­jor char­ac­ter in the movies,” Rowl­ing wrote. Depp said, “Rowl­ing knows I was falsely ac­cused. That’s why she has pub­licly sup­ported me.”

I’ll be hon­est with you, I felt bad for J.K. Rowl­ing hav­ing to field all these var­i­ous feel­ings from peo­ple out there.” Johnny Depp
