The couple’s divorce proceedings and the allegations of domestic violence became highly publicized and contentious, with both Heard and Depp making claims against each other. Legal battles and public attention surrounding their relationship continued for several years.
In 2020, Johnny Depp filed a libel lawsuit against a British newspaper, The Sun, for referring to him as a “wife-beater” in an article about his relationship with Heard. The lawsuit led to a highly publicized trial in which both Heard and Depp testified about their tumultuous relationship and the allegations of abuse. In November 2020, the court ruled against Depp, finding that the majority of the claims made in the article were substantially true.
As of my knowledge cutoff date in September 2021, Amber Heard continues to be involved in her acting career and remains a public figure, though her reputation has been significantly impacted by the legal proceedings and media coverage related to her relationship with Johnny Depp. Please note that there may have been developments or events related to Amber Heard since that time that I am not aware of.
