Johnny Depp is called upon to disclose all audio recordings with discussions between him and his ex-wife, Amber Heard, prior to the trial against Sun.
The Hollywood actor has sued News Group Newspapers (NGN), the publisher of Sun and its director Dan Wooton, on the occasion of an article alleging he was violent and abusing his ex, even saying he was beating his wife. At a hearing in London last week, lawyers for both sides asked the judge, among other things, to give the actor messages from the cellphone he allegedly sent to his ex.
The seat ordered Depp to provide further details and evidence in relation to audio material, including discussions with his ex during their relationship. His lawyers have argued in court that this audio material, a key element of the articles, includes, among other things, Heard discussing how Depp has used violence.
His spokesman, David Sorbonne, claimed that the evidence “strongly demonstrates in his own voice that he was not the victim of domestic violence but rather the perpetrator.” He added that in the material, Amber Heard allegedly claimed that no one would believe Johnny Depp if he claimed to be the victim himself.
The legal claim against NGN and Wooton is based on a text published in the Sun in April 2018, entitled “How insignificant – How can JK Rowling be ‘pleased’ with Johnny Depp, who hits his wife in the new movie Fantastic Beasts? “
According to the Hollywood actress, the article implies she is guilty, with irrefutable evidence of domestic violence against his wife, causing her serious trauma and leading her to fear for her life, while allegedly promising her compensation of about £ 5m. , which led to injunctions against him, causing him professional injury.
