The April 2018 piece by writer Dan Wootton was about the throwing of Mr Depp in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film establishment.
Mr Depp’s legal counselors state the article made “slanderous claims the very pinnacle of earnestness”, by blaming him for submitting genuine ambushes on Ms Heard and “delivering such genuine wounds that she dreaded for her life”.
On the third day of procedures at London’s High Court, Sasha Wass QC, speaking to Sun distributer News Group Newspapers, said Mr Depp had blaming the entertainer for having illicit relationships with her “driving man”, while the couple were in Australia where he was recording one of the Pirates of the Caribbean establishment in March 2015. He at that point tossed Ms Heard against a ping-pong table and pushed her facing a cooler, Ms Wass said.
Mr Depp denied the allegation, including: “After the episode where Ms Heard tossed the vodka bottle, the subsequent vodka bottle at me, which cut off the head of my finger and squashed the bones, that is the point at which I started what I feel was most likely a few types of a breakdown, a mental meltdown or something.”
Mr Depp said he at that point started to compose on mirrors and dividers utilizing the harmed finger, saying he “would not like to live around then”.
