Johnny Depp returned to the position of witness in the $ 50 million defamation suit against Amber Hard in an attempt to reject his ex-wife’s domestic abuse claim.
At the beginning of Depp’s testimony, he offered to defend Hard’s 100 million counter-claim. He filed a counter-lawsuit in 2020, citing remarks by Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, who argued in the Daily Mail that Hard’s allegations of abuse were fabricated.
But Depp said he was not aware of Waldman’s comments until Hard filed his counter-claim. Depp’s team claims that Waldman was not working for Depp.
“It sounded like a lot of salad to me,” Depp said of Waldman’s comments. “I didn’t know where they came from, where they ended up.”
Depp was called back to the stand by their rebuttal law. Earlier, he testified last month.
Depp Hard sued after writing an op-ed published in The Washington Post in December 2018. In the piece, Hard wrote that “two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic violence, and I felt the full force of the wrath of our culture. For those who speak.” In 2016, Hard Depp received a restraining order claiming domestic abuse. He has denied those claims.
More to come.
