Johnny Depp sues ex-wife for $50 million in defamation suit

In the suit, obtained by The Blast, Depp claims that Heard's allegations of abuse against him were an "elaborate hoax", taking issue with a Washington Post article Heard wrote in December 2018, which Depp alleges caused damage to his career.

"The op-ed depended on the central premise that Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her. That has to change". "Heard and advance her career", the lawsuit said, claiming that "she is the perpetrator".

"Mr. Depp's actions prove he is unable to accept the truth of his ongoing abusive behaviour", George continued.

Meanwhile, Depp claims her abuse allegations were "conclusively refuted by two separate responding police officers, a litany of neutral third-party witnesses, and 87 newly obtained surveillance camera videos".

Whilst Amber's article doesn't specifically mention Johnny, she said she has personally "felt the full force of our culture's wrath for women who speak out" against domestic violence.

After fast-moving Sunday storm, temps will fall into teens
At night, rain and/or snow probably continues as temperatures eventually fall below freezing as precipitation moves away. This storm has always had more potential and I can still see the possibility of over six inches of snow in many areas.

Heard and Depp married in 2015 after meeting in 2011 on the set of "The Rum Diary".

The lawsuit references an article that Heard wrote for The Washington Post in December of a year ago, in which she claimed that coming forward with the allegations led to her receiving death threats and a loss of job offers.

As part of their divorce, Depp was ordered to pay Heard $7 million, which she chose instead to have donated to several charities. Both signed Non Disclosure Agreements, preventing them from discussing their relationship.

The lawsuit additionally claims that Heard began a relationship with Tesla founder Elon Musk "no later than one month after" her and Depp Wednesday. "Heard in the ensuing days, and more", Depp's lawyer Adam Waldman says in the story with US Weekly.

Depp is suing for defamation and asking for damages in excess of US$50 million ($73.6m).

Reps for Musk did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment. He claims his finger had to be surgically reattached, while accusing Heard of giving "false accounts of this incident, casting Mr Depp as the perpetrator of his own injury". The two first broke up in August 2017 due to their busy schedules but rekindled their romance in January 2018 only to split for a second time a month later.
