Johnny Depp is part of a very public and ongoing domestic abuse case with his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Both actors have been relentlessly fighting the legal battle for the last three years. Now, as the date of the trial approaches near, Amber Heard is going offline.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are going to trial next week. Amber Heard says she’s unplugging from the world as the date comes near. This is because she needs a clear head getting into court to defend herself against Johnny Depp’s claims.

Amber Heard took to Instagram to make her announcement. She wrote, “I’m going to go offline for the next several weeks. As you may know, I’ll be in Virginia where I face my ex-husband Johnny Depp in court.” In her announcement, Amber notes that she never named Johnny in her Washington Post op-ed and has “maintained a love” for him. “I continue to pay that price, but hopefully when this case concludes, I can move on and so can Johnny. I have always maintained a love for Johnny and it brings me great pain to have to live out the details of our past life together in front of the world.”

Amber Heard threw many accusations at Depp, including claims of spousal abuse amongst other things. He vehemently denied these claims and even countersued. It is a $50 million libel suit Depp filed against Heard in 2019.

The suit is in response to the Washington Post op-ed which talks about domestic violence after which Heard also filed for a divorce. Depp believes that her accusations caused him financial losses and put his career in jeopardy. Depp’s reputation took a major hit after he lost his libel case in the U.K.

The trial is underway in about 48 hours. The witnesses include A-list celebrities including James Franco, Paul Bettany and Elon Musk. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
