The ongoing legal battle between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard continues to get messier by the moment. After Johnny Depp lost an appeal in the domestic violence lawsuit, Amber Heard made sure to celebrate that fact while taking a shot at Depp.
Many fans were elated when it was reported that Amber Heard was fired from her role as Mera in Aquaman 2. However, Heard would prove everyone wrong after hinting that she will be reprising her role as Mera in Aquaman 2.
In fact, fans even previously petitioned hard to have Amber Heard removed from the upcoming film, but to no avail. Warner Bros would fire Depp from his role of Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3 due to the domestic violence lawsuit.
Depp also moved forward with a huge $50 million defamation suit against Amber Heard. According to Page Six, Johnny Depp has hired “Making A Murderer” attorney Kathleen Zellner, who has famously worked to overturn wrongful convictions.
Zellner has confirmed she has joined Depp’s legal team for his US battle against Heard and also released a statement regarding her inclusion.
“I have spent the last 30 plus years defending individuals who have been falsely accused of wrongdoing. I welcome adding Johnny Depp to that list and joining his dream team who share this view and have so effectively been advocating for him.”
The messy legal battle between the two is unlikely to end anytime soon and we will keep you updated on everything that goes on in the case.
