A verdict on the case in the UK is expected any day. There, he sued The Sun who called him a "wife beater".
However, according to new court documents, Amber is countersuing ex-husband Johnny Depp in the US trial for $100 million
In her suit, Amber says that Depp’s US lawsuit merely continues his “abuse and harassment”. She says he called her “the most horrendous of names,” including “c–t,” “whore,” “disgusting pig” and “inhuman scum filled suckfish.”
“Not content to let the jury decide this lawsuit, Mr. Depp and/or his agents acting on his behalf have orchestrated a false and defamatory smear campaign,”
He controlled “dozens if not hundreds” of bots and “social media accounts created specifically for the purpose of targeting” her.
Depp even “initiated, coordinated, overseen and/or supported and amplified” two change.org petitions to get her booted from the “Aquaman” movie as well as being a spokeswoman for L’Oreal.
The fillings claims that “This stream of false and defamatory accusations against Ms Heard is all an attempt to ruin her life and career, simply because she was a victim of domestic abuse and violence at the hands of Mr. Depp, and had the audacity and temerity to finally come forward to end” it.
In other news, Johnny Depp has requested that his US defamation lawsuit trial against ex-wife Amber Heard be delayed due to the upcoming filming of Fantastic Beasts 3.
