The source said the couple are “seriously dating” and “their chemistry is off the charts”. But Rich is not the first brunette lawyer Depp has been linked to. Camille Vasquez, 38, was part of his team for the Heard trial in New York and rumours were rife about the pair enjoying a romance. But Vasquez was actually dating Brit exec...
    Amber Heard has dumped the attorney who defended her in her unsuccessful defamation trial with Johnny Depp as she now tries to appeal the verdict.  Elaine Charlson Bredehoft, who represented the Aquaman actress in the six-week defamation trial, has parted ways with Heard. Attorney's David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown, who represented The New York Times earlier this year in a defamation lawsuit against 2008 vice president nominee Sarah Palin, will take over as the appeal proceeds.  The pair work for Ballard Spahr and have covered various cases, including companies and individuals in high-stakes civil litigation, speakers in First Amendment cases, journalists, and news organizations. Announcing the news, Heard's spokesperson said in a statement: 'When it comes protecting the fundamental right of Freedom of Speech, we look at the jury's decision - to paraphrase a famous quote - not "as the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning."'  'A different court warrants different representation, particularly as so much new evidence is now coming to light.' Heard, 36, was ordered to pay her ex-husband more than $10 million in damages at...

    Amber Heard has officially filed to appeal her defamation case against Johnny Depp, nearly two months after she was ordered to pay her ex-husband over $10million in damages.  Lawyers representing the actress, 36, on Thursday filed a notice to appeal the verdict at the Virginia Court of Appeals in Fairfax County, court records obtained by DailyMail.com reveal.  The move comes just a week after Heard was denied a request for a new trial.  In June, the Aquaman star was ordered to pay Depp $10.35million in damages at the end of an explosive six-week trial, when a jury ruled she had defamed the Pirates of the Caribbean star in a newspaper opinion piece published in 2018.  Amber Heard filed a notice appeal the ruling in her defamation case against Johnny Depp on Thursday, court records obtained by DailyMail.com reveal  The actress was ordered to pay her actor ex-husband $10.35 million in damages after a jury found she defamed him in an op-ed about domestic abuse in 2018  Depp, 59, was awarded $15million in total - $10million in compensatory damages and $5million...
    (CNN)A Virginia judge denied seven post-trial motions Amber Heard filed in an attempt to fight the jury verdict handed down in the defamation case with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.After a weeks-long trial, a jury in June awarded $15 million in damages to Depp and only $2 million to Heard in their respective defamation lawsuits. Attorneys for Heard petitioned for a new trial, claiming that information on the jury panel list sent to counsel ahead of trial did not appear to match the demographics of one of the jurors, and so compromised Heard's rights to due process.Judge Penney Azcarate said in the court order filed Wednesday that Heard's rights to due process were not affected because no fraud or wrongdoing occurred in the jury selection process."The juror was vetted, sat for the entire jury, deliberated, and reached a verdict. The only evidence before this Court is that this juror and all jurors followed their oaths, the Court's instructions, and orders. This Court is bound by the competent decision of the jury," Judge Azcarate wrote.Read MoreIf Heard's legal team had an issue...
    A judge has denied Amber Heard's motion to have the verdict of her blockbuster defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp thrown out and the case re-tried. Lawyers representing Heard, 36, filed a motion earlier this month on the grounds that the verdict that she had defamed Depp, 59, was not supported by evidence.  They also alleged that a juror had not been properly vetted and questioned whether that juror was even supposed to be allowed on the jury.  Court documents obtained by DailyMail.com show that Judge Penny Azcarate denied all of Heard's post-trial requests on Wednesday.  A judge has denied Amber Heard's motion to have the verdict of her blockbuster defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp thrown out and the case re-tried Depp's lead attorney, Ben Chew, responded to the motion in a statement to Courthouse News, saying 'What we expected, just longer, no more substantive' In a 43-page memorandum, Heard's lawyers argued that the verdict - and the $10million in damages she now owes Depp - should be tossed out on the grounds that during the trial, Depp 'proceeded solely...
    Amber Heard could face another legal battle in Australia after losing her high-profile defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp earlier this month. She is the subject of an 'ongoing' perjury investigation in Australia related to court proceedings stemming from her infamous visit to Queensland with Depp in 2015. The couple, who were in the country while Depp filmed Pirates of the Caribbean 5, broke Australia's strict quarantine and biosecurity laws by failing to declare their Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, upon their arrival from the U.S. The Aquaman actress, 36, was charged with two counts of illegally importing the animals in July that year, but the case was closed when she pleaded guilty at a Gold Coast court in April 2016 to falsifying travel documents, reports ET Canada.

    Amber Heard has opened the door for Johnny Depp to sue her once again after she doubled down on claims that he beat her in a new interview with the Today show, with an expert telling DailyMail.com that her latest statements are grounds for 'a third lawsuit.' During the explosive interview - which was pre-recorded on Thursday in New York City and is airing in three parts throughout the week - the actress, 36, called the verdict in her defamation trial against Depp, 59, 'unfair' and insisted that she is going to 'stand by every word of her testimony until the day she dies,' less than two weeks after she was found guilty of defaming her ex by claiming that he abused her during their marriage.  The 36-year-old doubled down on her allegations that Depp was physically violent towards her during their one-year of marriage, and accused him of 'lying' on the stand when he said that he 'never hit her,' while speaking to Today host Savannah Guthrie.

    Kevin Lamarque/Getty Images Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez spoke out against rumors that she is dating the actor. “It’s also an unethical charge being made. It’s sexist,” Vasquez told People magazine on Thursday, referring to speculation that she and Depp are in a relationship. She added that while the baseless reports on their relationship were “unfortunate” and “disappointing,” she was not surprised by the buzz. “I guess it comes with the territory of being a woman just doing her job,” Vasquez said. Vasquez made clear that while she and Depp are friends, he is her client first, calling the rumors, “disappointing to hear.” “It’s disappointing that certain outlets kind of ran with it or said that my interactions with Johnny – who is a friend and I’ve known and represented for four-and-a-half years now – that my interactions in any way were inappropriate or unprofessional,” she said. She went on to stress that she cares “very deeply about” her clients, adding that she grew close to Depp and her co-workers throughout the trial. “I’m Cuban and Colombian,” she continued. “I’m tactile.

    Dior seems to be betting big on Johnny Depp despite the recent revelations in his high-profile defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The French fashion house appears to be broadcasting an old ad featuring the controversial 59-year-old actor, according to TMZ.

He describes himself as an “Occasional Thespian” in his bio but has yet to post any content to his page.

    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,...

    Evelyn Hockstein, Elisabeth Frantz/Getty Images The blockbuster defamation trial between former spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has officially come to an end, and the stars have started to weigh in. The trial was full of celebrity namedrops and appearances throughout, with several mentions of Elon Musk, video testimony from Kate Moss herself, and numerous other Hollywood references. Naturally, celebrities have thoughts on the celebrity trial and have started to take sides — largely via the social media like button. BuzzFeed News Reporter Kelsey Weekman compiled a full list of celebrities who have liked either Depp or Heard’s post-verdict statements, and it’s pretty clear who the majority believe. Per Weekman, celebrities who liked or commented on Depp’s post include: Ryan Adams (commented “❤️????????”) Patti Smith Michelle Branch Ashley Benson (commented “????????❤️❤️❤️”) Bella Hadid Gemma Chan Halle Bailey Naomi Campbell (commented “❤️❤️❤️❤️”) Emma Roberts Rita Ora Chase Stokes Ian Somerhalder Kelsea Ballerini Cazzie David Zoe Saldaña Jason Momoa Kelly Osbourne Vanessa Hudgens Hailey Bieber Jennifer Aniston Chase Hudson Tony Lopez Suni Lee Henry Golding Lucy Hale Zoey Deutch Joey King Amber Fillerup Clark Dominic...
    Social media hawks following the Depp vs. Heard trial have ridiculed Amber Heard's failed attempt at poetic justice after noticing the Aquaman star wore her infamous 'funeral dress' at the courtroom yesterday.  The same plain black dress was worn by Heard when she filed her restraining order against Johnny Depp in LA as their marriage crumbled in 2016, then again in London in 2020 while attending court for the defamation case between Depp and British newspaper The Sun.  Heard herself even posted snaps of the outfit from both events on social media in March 2021 as the Pirates of the Caribbean actor lost his bid to appeal the court's ruling in favour of The Sun, in what many saw as a snide dig at her former husband. 'One dress, four years apart. Sometimes it's important to wear the same thing twice,' the 36-year-old wrote. Eagle-eyed Twitter users ripped into Heard last night, having spotted she was clad yet again in the same somber outfit as she left the courtroom after learning she will be forced to pay $8.35million in damages...
    A top legal scholar has argued that the American Civil Liberties Union shares in the blame for defaming Johnny Depp, after the group drafted an essay for Amber Heard that was at the center of his claims against her. During the six-week defamation trial, it emerged that Heard's 2018 Washington Post op-ed claiming domestic abuse was actually ghostwritten by staffers working for the ACLU.  On Wednesday, a jury in Virginia found that several passages of that essay were defamatory, even though it didn't mention Depp by name. 'The ACLU really does deserve a really a front row seat in terms of blame. You know, they played a critical role,' argued legal scholar Jonathan Turley, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. 'They helped draft a defamatory statement. They disregarded the countervailing arguments of Depp or the possibility might be innocent, and they elevated this person as the presumptive spokesperson for all abused spouses,' he added. Legal scholar Jonathan Turley argued that the ACLU is partly to blame in Amber...
    Johnny Depp yesterday won his libel case against former spouse and fellow actor Amber Heard, marking the culmination of a blockbuster trial which has captured attention around the globe. But many questions remain following the delivery of the verdict which saw the jury in Virginia award Depp $15million in damages. Can Heard appeal the decision? How will she pay? Why did Depp himself lose his defamation case against British newspaper in 2020? And will either of their careers ever be the same again?  Here's a round-up of everything you need to know about the trial and an explanation of what happens next.  What is the case about?  The dramatic saga began when Depp, 58, filed a $50million defamation claim over a 2018 op-ed Heard wrote for The Washington Post, in which she appeared to allude to him when she described overcoming domestic abuse and violence.  The Pirates of the Caribbean star claimed his ex-wife defamed him in the op-ed  which caused him to lose movie roles and other Hollywood jobs.  Heard in turn countersued for $100million, claiming she had been...
    JOHNNY Depp has won the $50 million defamation trial against his former wife Amber Heard.

That has to change." The article does not mention Mr Depp by name, yet his lawyers said it falsely implies he physically and sexually abused Ms Heard while they were together. The actor has consistently denied the "outrageous, outlandish" claims of abuse and said he had "spoken up for what I have been carrying on my back reluctantly for six years" during his own evidence during the trial. Heard has since denied all accusations and countersued the Pirates of the Caribbean star for $100million.

Depp, 58, was seeking $50 million in the suit in which he claimed that, despite not naming him in the op-ed, Heard’s piece damaged his reputation and career because the item referred to the period of time two years earlier when she filed for divorce and a restraining order. Depp has vehemently denied all claims of abuse since Heard, 36, first made her accusations. Heard subsequently countersued Depp for $100 million...

    Paul McCartney has played a clip of Johnny Depp from an old music video during a concert in Orlando - prompting speculation about whether the singer has given his support to the actor amid his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The former Beatles singer, 79, played the 2012 music video for his track 'My Valentine' - which features Depp, 58, and actress Natalie Portman - as he performed the song at the Camping World Stadium on Saturday night. The visual, which features Portman lip syncing to the music while Depp strums an acoustic guitar, showed on the big screens at McCartney's 'Get Back' tour.  McCartney did not address Depp's $100million court case against Heard directly during the concert but as soon as the images of the actor appeared on stage, the crowd cheered.

    Johnny Depp departed from his libel trial against ex-wife Amber Heard to rock with sometime collaborator Jeff Beck at the longtime pop star's concert in Sheffield, England on Sunday.  While the jury continues deliberations Tuesday due to the Memorial Day holiday, Depp spent Sunday night onstage after apparently flying straight to Sheffield City Hall to rock with Beck, performing a cover of John Lennon's 'Isolation,' according to MSN. An Instagram user who caught a shot of the Pirates of the Carribean star wrote: 'Wasn't expecting this... I thought he was in court but turns out he's in Sheffield with Jeff Beck.'  'JOHNNY SINGING ISOLATION OMG' exclaimed a Twitter user who caught a quick video of the performance.  The song, released officially by the pair in 2020, has recently gained notoriety due to the publicity from the trial.  The duo also performed covers of Marvin Gaye's 'What's Going On' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing,' according to The Hollywood Reporter.  'Mr. Depp is in the United Kingdom, as he was a few weeks ago, to adhere to his previously scheduled work obligations,'...
    Watch as the closing arguments take place for actor Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against actress Amber Heard. The Pirates of the Caribbean star is suing his ex-wife, seeking $50 million in damages, claiming that her 2018 Washington Post piece — in which she described herself as a victim of domestic abuse — has harmed his movie career. While Heard has accused Depp of domestic violence, the Aquaman actress has insisted on the witness stand that her Washington Post op-ed is not about Depp. While being cross examined by one of Depp’s lawyer’s last week, however, Heard acknowledged that contents of the op-ed were “not just about [Depp], but he is included in that, yes.” On Thursday, the actress testified that she wrote her op-ed because, “I know how many people will come out in support of [Depp] — I know ow many people will come out and say whatever for him.

In new testimony preceded by a lengthy, animated bench conference out of earshot between lawyers for both parties and Judge Penney Azcarate, Depp was asked about his drug use, his role in helping Heard land a role in Aquaman, and what happened between him and his wife in a violent encounter in Australia that left him with a severed fingertip.

    As a blood-and-guts tale worthy of any Hollywood psychodrama, the ex-spouse defamation suit showdown between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has gripped the nation and had the public and celebrities alike lining up to choose a side. In one corner is Johnny Depp; the Hollywood heartthrob, in the public's lives for over three decades, the number one A-lister for a period and the creator of the beloved character Captain Jack Sparrow. And in the other corner his less famous, less well-known, less beloved ex-wife Amber Heard, with a smaller well of public sympathy to draw from.  While Depp has brought his trademark likable charisma to the courtroom and won the backing of dozens of celebrities that he has worked with and befriended over a lifetime in showbiz, Heard has found it harder to elicit support.  But some celebrities have come out in support for the Aquaman actress. So who are they?     Amber Heard, 36, is countersuing Johnny Depp for allegedly orchestrating a 'smear campaign' against her and describing his own lawsuit as a continuation of 'abuse and harassment' she suffered...
    Johnny Depp is set to take the stand today in a blockbuster climax to his $50 million defamation suit with ex-wife Amber Heard that has already seen more than its fair share of explosive revelations.  Entering its marathon seventh and final week week, the Pirates of the Caribbean star - who last took the stand two weeks ago - is expected to be called again to undergo cross-examination as a rebuttal witness by Heard's team of lawyers.  There are conflicting reports of which day the 58-year-old actor will take the stand, with some claiming it will be as soon as today.  Heard herself took to the stand last week to be cross-examined by Depp's firebrand lawyer Camille Vasquez, who stole the show with her tough questioning of Heard, 36, and tender treatment towards Depp.  Judge Penney Azcarate, presiding over the dramatic Fairfax County case in Virginia, gave each side a total of 61 hours and 15 minutes to present their cases.  As of Monday morning, Heard's legal team had 8 hours and 14 minutes left, and Depp's lawyers had 18 hours...
    This week was the penultimate week in actor Johnny Depp's $50 million defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. Monday began with Depp's lawyer, Camille Vasquez, cross-examining Heard, pointing out that there were no medical records that she was ever treated for the alleged injuries Depp caused her. "I did not want to tell anyone," Heard explained. She stood her ground and called Depp an "abuser" during her testimony.

Heard confirmed that Depp told her she would never see his eyes again after filing for divorce and a subsequent temporary restraining order. Upon a redirect from her own lawyer, Heard gave her explanation of why he continued to avoid her gaze in the courtroom. "He's guilty," Heard said. "He knows he's lying." "Otherwise, why can't he look at me?" Heard continued. "I survived that man, and I'm here, and I'm able to look at him." The court...
    A support network for abused women and children has issued a statement expressing support for Johnny Depp in his ongoing defamation suit against ex-wife Amber Heard.  Mission NGO, a nonprofit group led by the former Miss Italy Valeria Altobelli, issued the statement on Friday, expressing 'compassion for Johnny Depp in this bad page of his personal history.' It follows a growing chorus of support for Depp after the court heard disturbing evidence suggesting that Heard physically abused him, including an audio tape of Heard admitting that she had hit him. Heard has long accused Depp of being the abuser in the relationship, allegations that he says scuttled his acting career, and led to his $50 million defamation lawsuit against the Aquaman actress.  Mission NGO, the support group for abused women led by the former Miss Italy Valeria Altobelli (left), issued a statement supporting Johnny Depp (right) on Friday  Heard has long accused Depp of being the abuser in the relationship, allegations that he says scuttled his acting career, and led to his $50 million defamation lawsuit Altobelli, who founded Mission...
    Saturday Night Live took a break from politics this week to instead bring viewers “live” coverage of the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard “cuckoo” trial. “I know it’s not the most pertinent story of the moment,” Kate McKinnon as MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said at the top of the cold open sketch. “But with all of the problems in the world isn’t it nice to have a news story we can all collectively watch and say, ‘Ooh, glad it ain’t me?’” The sketch zeroed in on the salacious allegation that Heard left “fecal matter” in Depp’s bed, imagining the moment when his various house staff discovered the “dookie” in question. When Heard’s lawyer objected on the grounds that it has nothing to do with Depp’s guilt or innocence, Cecily Strong’s judge replied, “That’s true, but I’ll allow it.

    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.

    Bill Burr shared his thoughts on the ongoing Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial during a recent podcast. On Monday’s episode of his show Monday Morning Podcast, Burr expressed support for Depp saying, “I’m too big a Johnny Depp fan to watch that.” “I love that guy and I just — I don’t want to hear all these personal details and shit. From what I’ve seen the guy is fucking destroying. And what’s great about this, is if he really does expose this woman for lying, I’m wondering. All these people that, you know, just accepted her lies about him if they’re going to apologize somehow,” Burr said. He continued, “They publicly trashed him, it’d be nice if they publicly apologized and said ‘maybe next time we won’t jump to conclusions.'” “It really does amaze me how the pendulum just does not seem to swing the other way. All of these women’s groups that when they see a woman that lies like this, which really hurts their position, because there are women out there that are in...

    After dragging my ass through the High Court for two years, which resulted in a humiliating loss for him and complete vindication for me, I genuinely intended to never talk about Johnny Depp again. I actually feel sorry for the former Hollywood icon who has become a pathetic excuse of a man. A human being with so much – all the money in the world, access to the most influential people, children who love him, fans who will stick with him through literally any form of documented and provably bad behaviour, including abuse of a female partner – has become consumed with an overwhelming and uncontrollable desire for revenge at any cost. Dan Wootton with Amber Heard. His reporting was backed by a November 2020 court ruling  Ruining his ex-wife Amber Heard is his goal, no matter how much it costs, how many lives it destroys and how much it taints his own reputation forever more. But after watching the vile court case develop in the US over the past couple of weeks, I feel morally compelled to speak out....

    FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Johnny Depp took the stand in a Virginia courtroom Monday for his fourth day of testimony in the trial over his allegations that ex-wife Amber Heard falsely portrayed him as a domestic abuser. Heard’s lawyers are expected to continue their onslaught of questions during their cross-examination. So far, they have focused on Depp’s drinking, drug use and charged interactions with Heard during their relationship. Heard’s attorneys argue that Depp physically and sexually abused her and that his denials lack merit because he was often drunk and high to the point of blacking out. Depp’s last day on the stand was Thursday. Heard’s attorneys referenced his history of trashing hotel rooms as well as the time he smashed a bathroom sconce during an argument with Heard. Depp is also facing a lawsuit filed by a member of a film crew who alleges the actor assaulted them in 2018. The jury has seen dozens of Depp’s texts to friends regarding his drinking, drug use and interactions with his then-wife, as well as his notes of contrition to Heard...
