Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard is ongoing. The actor has sued his ex-wife for the article she wrote for Washington Post. In the article, she claimed to be a survivor of abuse. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor sued her for $50 million. The actress has countersued him for $100 million. The trial has led to a rise of rumors around it. Not just the actors but their teams too are becoming victims of strange theories. Among one that has recently come to light is that Amber Heard went to jail for manslaughter based on a mugshot going viral.
Rumors say Amber Heard went to jail for manslaughter
An allegedly teenage year mugshot of the actress is going viral. Also, many claims that it is from a car accident she was involved in and was arrested for it. But the claims have been proven false as there is no such record that connects her to the crime. Though there is news that Amber Heard’s friend died in a car accident, she was not involved in it.
Also, the real reason why she dropped out of school was to pursue a career in modeling in New York. Then later went to learn acting in Los Angels. Unlike what many users claim that it was due to her arrest. So the rumor is not true. She did not go to jail for vehicular manslaughter. Though the death of her friend was the reason she became an atheist.
The truth behind the viral mugshots of Amber Heard
The viral mugshot that the netizens are claiming to be from the manslaughter case was from 2003. That was when the Aquaman actress was booked for driving with a suspended license. Also, there was a time when she was arrested over a dispute with her ex-girlfriend, Tasya Van Ree. It was in 2009, but later Van Ree claimed that the event was oversensationalized. There were no charges pressed and she was released.
The trial of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp will resume on May 16. There will be two major witnesses testifying the next week. The final judgment will be passed on May 27.
