This suit stems from an op-ed Heard wrote in The Washington Post about abusive relationships in 2018, titled: “Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change“. While the article did not expressly mention him by name, Depp argued that it greatly damaged his career and sued Heard for Defamation. The trial for the 50 million dollar suit began in April 2022 and is ongoing.

Taking the stand to give her testimony, Amber Heard made detailed allegations about Johnny Depp’s attempts to control her career.  She alleged that Depp constantly criticized her roles in films and had also offered to take care of her financially. Further, she alleged that Depp had called her “foolish and naive” for her career choices. She said “It was hard for me to work, justify working. Every audition, every meeting, and every script I got was a negotiation or a fight. I had to justify it as if I was to say, ‘Hey, let’s have an open relationship.’ I thought that would be minimized if I could make him feel more secure.”

Earlier, Depp’s voice records were admitted in court. Depp reportedly told Heard: “I become irrational when you’re doing movies. I become jealous and f***ing weird, and we fight a lot more.”Needless to say, these allegations taken together with earlier ones of violence and abuse cast Depp in a very negative light.

In the 2015 film, Magic Mike XXL, Heard played the role of Zoe. Heard alleged that Depp had visited her on the set of this film and said that “Johnny was angry at me for working.
