Johnny Depp Sues British Tabloid for Defamation Over Story Slamming Him & JK Rowling

Johnny Depp is not putting up a story slamming him and JK Rowling.

The 54-year-old actor is suing a British tabloid for libel after the published and story calling him a “wife-beater” and criticizing the 52-year-old Harry Potter author for supporting him.

Johnny filed the lawsuit on Friday (June 2) against The Sun, their publishing company News Group Newspapers Limited, as well as columnist Dan Wootton, who wrote the article titled “How can J.K. Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?,” according to People.

Back in December, JK supported Johnny‘s role in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel despite the reports that Johnny physically abused his ex wife Amber Heard – which he has strongly denied.

Johnny is suing for £200,000 pounds in addition to £10,528 in legal fees, as well damages to be assessed by the court.
