Johnny Depp’s ex-wife asks judge to dis­miss his law­suit

Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! -

Fthe so­ci­etal plight of those who speak up about do­mes­tic abuse.

“I spoke up against sex­ual vi­o­lence — and faced our cul­ture’s wrath,” the 32-year-old ac­tress wrote, adding that she felt as though she was “on trial in the court of pub­lic opin­ion.”

But Depp’s law­suit says it was clear Heard was talk­ing about him, and that it wors­ened the dam­age the al­le­ga­tions had al­ready done to his ca­reer. The law­suit states Depp, 55, has suf­fered fi­nan­cial losses be­cause of the ac­cu­sa­tions, in­clud­ing be­ing dropped from his role as Capt. Jack Spar­row in the “Pi­rates of the Caribbean” films.

Heard’s lawyers also ar­gued that the law­suit should be moved to Los An­ge­les be­cause that’s where the rel­e­vant events took place and the court would be in a po­si­tion to sub­poena wit­nesses and find facts.

Heard first ac­cused Depp of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in May 2016, the year af­ter they were mar­ried. They were di­vorced in 2017.

The ac­tress, whose cred­its in­clude “Aqua­man” and “Jus­tice League,” met Depp on the set of their 2011 film “The Rum Diary.”
