Lawyer Slams Johnny Depp as Trial Wraps Up in London

Lawyer Sasha Wass for a UK tabloid gave closing arguments today in the trial where Johnny Depp is suing them for calling him a “wife beater.:

In her closing statement, the lawyer said there is “overwhelming evidence of domestic violence or wife-beating behavior, catalogued over a three-year period.”

She said Johnny was “a hopeless addict who repeatedly lost his self-control and all ability to restrain his anger.”

“Permeating all of the evidence in this case is the character of Mr. Depp himself — his well-documented evidence of violence and destruction over his adult life which have occurred when he was under the influence of drink and drugs,” she added.

She added he was “was subject to irrational mood swings and abnormal behavioural patterns, which would not have been present when Mr. Depp was clean and sober, and Mr. Depp has a name for this metamorphosed entity — namely, The Monster.”

Johnny has repeatedly denied these claims and had famous actresses come to his defense. His ex wife in question, Amber Heard, was accused of lying in court.
