The sordid details of Johnny Depp (57) and Amber Heard’s (34) bizarre marriage were aired in a London court in a 16-day trial that gripped fans worldwide…

The trial began when Depp sued The Sun’s publisher, News Group Newspapers (NGN), and its executive editor, Dan Wootton for labelling him a “wife beater” in a headline. The headline read “‘Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?

Depp lost the case after the court sided with Heard. She submitted 14 times that she claims Depp assaulted her during their relationship. The tumultuous marriage was fuelled by drugs and drink and violence. They recorded each other’s tirades. The recordings were shown in court.

Throughout it all, Depp has denied any of Heard’s allegations, saying that she was the one who assaulted him.

This is not the end of their court battles. The former couple are suing each other. Depp is claiming US$50 million after Heard wrote an article for the Washington Post about being a survivor of domestic abuse.
