The bitter legal dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has done much damage to both the stars. It has given them a barrage of negative press which intensified with the commencement of the trial in the defamation case brought by Depp. It has, in the case of Depp, led to major roles being taken from him.
Depp is currently fighting in court to salvage his reputation. The allegations made by Heard have greatly damaged his career. When Depp was under heat over the allegations of domestic violence made by Heard, it became less than ideal for brands to have him endorse their products. Dior, on the other hand, had other plans.
How Much Dior Paid Johnny Depp
Dior stuck with Johnny Depp when it appeared to be inadvisable to do so. Fans of the Jack Sparrow actor were very happy with his fact. Depp was rumored to have been paid between $3m and $5m for the Sauvage advert by Dior, according to the Guardian.
The Amber Heard V/s Johnny Depp Saga
Depp was married to fellow actress Amber Heard from 2015 to 2017. They had a messy divorce. In 2018, the British publication, The Sun, wrote an article on Depp that referred to him as a “wife-beater”. In response to this, Depp unsuccessfully sued the newspaper for defamation in the UK.
Depp then sued Heard for defamation in Virginia, the US, in 2019. This was over an op-ed written by his ex-wife in The Washington Post about abusive relationships. While the article did not expressly mention him by name, Depp argued that it greatly damaged his career. The trial started on April 11, 2022. What do you think of this whole matter?
