The entertainer is suing the distributer of The Sun – News Group Newspapers (NGN) – and official manager Dan Wootton, over an April 2018 article that alluded to him as an “undershirt”.
Mr Depp has arduously denied that he was vicious towards Ms Heard.
Be that as it may, NGN legal advisors said the “undershirt” portrayal was “totally precise”.
Both Mr Depp and Ms Heard were in court in London on Tuesday morning.
In a composed diagram of the Hollywood star’s case, his lawyer, David Sherborne, said the article made “abusive charges the very pinnacle of earnestness” against Mr Depp, blaming him for submitting genuine attacks on Ms Heard and “causing such genuine wounds that she dreaded for her life”.
Mr Sherborne stated: “The articles add up to a full-scale assault on the inquirer as a ‘tank top’, liable of the most frightful physical maltreatment.”
He included: “The petitioner’s position is clear – Ms Heard’s claims are finished untruths.
“The petitioner was not savage towards Ms Heard, it was she who was rough to him.”
