Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for $50 million after she allegedly implied in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post that he assaulted her. The trial captivated the entire world’s attention, and it’s easy to see why. The trial has now reached its conclusion, with closing arguments.

TMZ reports that the trial of Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard is nearing its conclusion, with closing arguments scheduled for today. The jury will then begin the Herculean task of determining who is telling the truth and who is lying.

As they wrap up their case, Johnny’s lawyers will try to connect the dots, telling the jury Amber was on a smear campaign motivated by vengeance to portray their client as a wife beater. They will almost certainly use the poop in their marital bed to argue that Amber was motivated by revenge and that she was not a victim at all.

Amber’s lawyers will paint a picture of a man who frequently explodes into violence, essentially saying Johnny’s persona is violent. They’ll argue that even when he wasn’t physically assaulting Amber, his temper was explosive, and they’ll use video and texts to prove it.

In terms of defamation claims, both Johnny and Amber are public figures, so there must be proof of actual malice in order for either to win in the end. Beyond the court case, the verdict could determine who has a career and who does not in the future. Although most people on the outside have taken sides, the jury could conclude that both Amber and Johnny were so deranged that it was impossible to determine who was the aggressor.

Ironically, today marks the 6-year anniversary of Amber’s appearance in court to file her TRO, which sparked this entire ordeal. It remains to be seen whether the verdict will be in favor of Johnny’s defamation suit or Amber’s countersuit.

There is likely going to be a lot more in this situation before we reach the true end. We will continue monitoring this story here at Thirsty.
