    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones immediately took to the airwaves after the verdict in his defamation trial on Friday - which will see him be forced to pay nearly $50million in damages to the family of slain six-year-old Jesse Lewis.  Lewis was among the 20 children who were shot dead by crazed gunman Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Another six people were killed in the massacre. For years Jones claimed on his InfoWars platform that the shooting in Newton was a 'false flag' operation perpetrated by the US government to further gun control. In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by billionaire philanthropist George Soros and 'operatives.' He did not identify the other 'operatives' by name. The host also accused Judge Maya Guerra Gamble of being a 'blue-haired SJW' and insinuated that she was corrupt by saying that she 'altered the record of the trial.' 'SJW' stands for Social Justice Warrior.  In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed that the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by...

    Marilyn Manson sent a string of texts to Johnny Depp in 2016, comparing his current wife, Lindsay Usich, to the actor's ex-wife Amber Heard. Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, messaged Depp: 'I got an amber 2.0.'

Depp instructed his friend to 'don't take no s**t' and remain calm, noting it was important 'not to give her what she wants.' The Pirates of the Caribbean star added: 'Sociopathic behavior... it is f***ing real, my brother!! My ex-c**t is god**** TEXTBOOK!!'

    Johnny Depp and his attorneys shocked many legal experts by winning his US defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard after having previously lost a similar libel case in the UK. After 23 days of testimony and less than three days of deliberation, a jury ruled in favor of all three of Depp's claims against Heard, finding that she had falsely and willfully accused him of domestic abuse with the intention of damaging his reputation. In 2020, Depp lost a libel case in the UK, after the actor had sued The Sun, a British tabloid, for calling him a 'wife beater.' In that case, a judge concluded that much of the domestic abuse that Heard alleged had, in fact, occurred.  That is why Depp's victory in the US legal system, which sets a higher bar for proving libel of a public figure, came as a surprise to some legal analysts.  It is traditionally easier to win a libel lawsuit in the UK because in that legal system the defendant has to prove the truth of their allegedly defamatory statements, whereas in the US,...

Johnny!” Fox News correspondent Mark Meredith reported from outside the Virginia courthouse on Wednesday and explained the mood. “A lot of the fans who have been out there all afternoon in 90-degree heat are probably going to be disappointed. Because Johnny Depp is not in that courtroom. He was in the U.K. over the weekend,” Meredith said. “He was not there in court as the verdict was read.

    Johnny Depp's snickering and seemingly irreverent behavior in court could potentially jeopardize his $50million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, according to legal analysts. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has won the hearts of supporters and fans on social media who seem to have been charmed by his tongue-in-cheek remarks and conduct throughout the high-profile trial.  But legal experts warn that Depp's 'smartass' comments – including joking about his drinking – could make him look 'unsympathetic' to those who will actually be deciding his fate: the jury.  The actor's laughing and joking during Heard's testimony could make him less 'likable', two top defamation lawyers in Virginia, where the case is being held, told DailyMail.com.  They also predicted that both sides could potentially lose their cases because neither has met the standard for defamation yet.  Legal experts say Johnny Depp is potentially jeopardizing his $100million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard with his conduct in court Depp's tongue-in-cheek remarks and fits of laughter could be off-putting and paint him as 'unlikable' or 'unsympathetic' to a jury, lawyers told DailyMail.com.

    All morning Johnny Depp watched proceedings from his seat in court, sometimes smiling, sometimes frowning in concentration, always chewing gum. His mad professor hair had been smoothed into a ponytail and he wore a dark three-piece suit, a black shirt and a patterned tie.  His earrings and the crust of chunky rings on the fingers of both hands were the only silvery hint of his picaresque life beyond the courtroom walls – but the message here was clear. Johnny was ready to testify. Gum gone, he took the stand after lunch and at first faltered and seemed terribly disjointed, struggling to get his thoughts in order. It was painful to watch.

    Alec Baldwin's defamation allegations against a man who alleged the actor hit him can go forward to trial.
