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.

    He’s suing because he’s in so much debt, he’ll try anything. I guess that’s why he’s charging 1k for pics lol.

    The truth hurts for this depraved man

  • AHSKS

    “He” isn’t charging anything. The price is for a VIP meet and greet package which includes a chance to meet him, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry and get VIP tickets for the concerts and merchandise. A part of the proceeds even go to their charities.

    Amanda stans (like yourself) are allergic to truth or justice.

    If you believe he’s doing it for free, you need to see a doctor for your delusions.

    Check out your idol’s amber fee for certain services only she can give, somewhere around 300.000 $. And she sucks at it.

  • Willy Billy

    No, he’s suing because they have no right to defame him like that.

  • Willy Billy

    Truth? He was never arrested/charhed/convicted and his only accuser dropped her claims with prejudice.

    Go Johnny! Get them.

    AHSKS never claimed he did it for free, just that it was a VIP meet and greet ticket with the band. Do you honestly believe Johnny Depp is the one organising the tour and deciding on pricing? Although The Hollywood Vampires have actually toured before and donated all proceeds to charity.

    It’s about time, Johnny. My hope is the real truth will come out and Amber will go to prison for all the problems she’s caused. The #me too movement needs a reality check…not ALL women should be believed.
