Johnny Depp Denied an Appeal in 'Wife Beater' Case in the UK

Johnny Depp Denied an Appeal in 'Wife Beater' Case in the UK

Johnny Depp previously lost his legal battle in the UK, where he sued a publishing company for libel after being called a “wife beater” in The Sun.

The 57-year-old actor and his legal team vowed to appeal the decision, but the initial appeal has been denied by a judge as the case doesn’t have “a reasonable prospect of success,” according to Deadline.

Johnny must also pay an initial £628,000 legal costs to The Sun owner News Group Newspapers.

The next step for Johnny is to take the cast to the Court of Appeals.

After Johnny lost the trial, he was asked to step down from his role as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise and a replacement is already rumored to have been found.
