Amber Heard Lawyers to Call Johnny Depp to Testify in Libel Lawsuit
CBR has learned that Amber Heard’s legal team will call Johnny Depp to the stand this week for cross-examination in the ongoing defamation lawsuit.
Actor Johnny Depp testified last month in the ongoing defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. It now looks like he will speak again in the coming week.
CBR has learned that Heard’s team intends to call Depp as a witness on Monday, May 23 for cross-examination. He will be included as the third witness for the day.
Depp is currently suing Heard for a total of $50 million. Depp by name in the room. Depp’s legal team argued that the references to him, coupled with Heard’s previous abuse allegations, were enough to damage Depp’s name. Heard denied the charges and counter-sued Depp for $100 million.
Heard and his legal team tried to have the case dismissed twice. In the ongoing libel suit, Judge Penney Azcarate denied the attempt. Additionally, due to the negative publicity resulting from the televised trial, the Aquaman The star recently fired his PR team, Precision Strategies, in favor of Shane Communication, to “help him speak out better with public opinion.”
