Johnny Depp has filed an application with the Court of Appeal, according to a publicly-available list of pending appeals. He wants to overturn a High Court ruling that he assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard
The Hollywood star sued The Sun’s publisher for libel after a 2018 column described him as a “wife beater”.
He lost that case and in a statement, he said: “The surreal judgment of the court in the UK will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.”
In the Sun lawsuit, in a text from Depp to CAA agent Christian Carino, Depp swore revenge:
"[Heard is] begging for total global humiliation. She's gonna get it. I'm gonna need your texts about San Francisco brother … I'm even sorry to ask … But she sucked [Elon Musk's] crooked dick and he gave her some shitty lawyers … I have no mercy, no fear and not an ounce of emotion or what I once thought was love for this gold digging, low level, dime a dozen, mushy, pointless dangling overused flappy fish market … I'm so fucking happy she wants to fight this out!!! She will hit the wall hard!!! And I cannot wait to have this waste of a cum guzzler out of my life!!! I met fucking sublime little Russian here … Which makes me realize the time I blew on that 50 cent stripper … I wouldn't touch her with a goddam glove."
