Johnny Depp fails to get $100M countersuit tossed; Amber Heard now allowed to sue for defamation



More bad news for embattled star Johnny Depp. Just weeks after being found guilty by the UK High Court of being a "wife beater", a judge in his Virginia case against Heard has denied Depp's request to have her $100M countersuit tossed out.

Fairfax County Judge Bruce White says Depp's accusations that Heard's claims of abuse during the couple’s marriage was an elaborate hoax have the ability to 'injure Heard's reputation'. Therefore he is allowing the actress to countersue Depp for defamation.

Heard's $100M case will now head to trial later this year, while Depp's Virginia trial begins on May 3rd.
