Johnny Depp Denied UK Appeal Trial in 'Wife Beater' Case

Johnny Depp Denied UK Appeal Trial in 'Wife Beater' Case

Johnny Depp has been denied a chance for a retrial in the UK.

Depp requested a retrial back in December for his 2020 libel claim against The Sun over an article calling him a “wife beater” amid his ex wife Amber Heard‘s allegations against him, which a High Court judge found was “substantially true.”

Today, a judge denied that ruling, and his lawyers issued a statement in response.

“The evidence presented at last week’s hearing (the appeal of Mr. Depp vs. News Group Newspapers LTD) further demonstrates that there are clear and objective reasons to seriously question the decision reached in the U.K. court,” Joelle Rich of Schillings Partners told THR. “Mr. Depp looks forward to presenting the complete, irrefutable evidence of the truth in the U.S. libel case against Ms. Heard where she will have to provide full disclosure.”

His lawyers argued last week that Amber has failed to pay charitable donations from her divorce settlement with him, which was supposed to total $7 million.

Meanwhile, Amber‘s lawyers have responded to the claim that she pocketed the divorce settlement.
