Amber Heard getting sued for 50 million

Johnny Depp is going after his ex-wife for falsely accusing (carefully without naming him) him of domestic abuse in the Washington Post, citing damages (largely, Disney opting to not have him in the latest Pirates movie, most likely because of the allegations):

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/johnny-...ed-2019-03-02/

The actual lawsuit here: https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-co.../DeppHeard.pdf

This is how the #metoo stuff gets shut down. With actual consequences for the false accusers.

Shouldn't this be in Current Events?

Also, I don't know. I've been kind of "forced" to pay attention to this because my wife is obsessed with Depp, so I unfortunately have to learn all kinds of sh*t about him.

Among other things I've learned is that he's a fall-down lush with a quick temper, and also a pathological liar. Like one of those "medically incapable of telling the truth" types of people.

I'm willing to bet there were fights and that they got violent, but I doubt he was an innocent victim. She may well have gotten a few shots in herself but I'm inclined to believe her side of things. She went through a lot of bother for something that allegedly didn't happen. And he signed paperwork when they got divorced which stated that nothing she claimed against him was false; that's kind of important.

I care very little for either of them, frankly, but I wouldn't go so far as to say her claim is false. I'm inclined to believe that it wasn't.
--------------

His entire career's in a shambles and he can't hang onto any money, so this doesn't surprise me. He's been suing everybody lately, including his former managers, who had the audacity to try and make him stop burning through cash like it was air, and Disney was already very tired of him on account of how he shows up drunk all the time, and other studios don't want to work with him for insurance reasons, especially once the financial returns on his films stopped justifying his huge salary. If J.K. Rowling didn't have a crush on him, he'd be completely out of work. So this was only a matter of time, really. Guy's running out of options. That "Invisible Man" movie he was supposed to be in just dropped him, too. He's down to either "sue people" or actually get a job working the "Pirates" ride at Disneyland in-character.

Let the public see. Share it to the world. Let them both be judged by the court of public opinion!

The pictures of his severed finger are pretty gross. Wasn't the story that he cut it off himself in a fit of rage? Sounds legit.

He didn't win the lawsuit, the judge just agreed to have the court proceedings take place in the state Depp originally chose.The actual trial doesn't start until February.

I bet their relationship was mutually abusive.

As long as they had safe words, it's okay.

Hotness is everywhere, it’s not unique to her. She’s a fine girl, but that bitch be cray cray.
She deserves jail though. She ruins good men.

Not phased by her physical appearance. She has issues and is least deserving of the spotlight and influence she has obtained. Nice to see justice coming around on this. Iím watching Pirates tonight.

Really, because she is on tape berating him for running away and being a “baby” when she begins to get physically violent with him, including throwing vases, cans, pots, pans. In her own words.
And apparently that’s just one piece of incriminating evidence out of nearly 100, turned over by Johnny Depp’s team. Also, all his former wives have come out to vouch for him being a peaceful person. But hey, go with your gut.

He may have issues but this is the most vindicating thing possible for him in this situation.

My gut tells me that they both got drunk and hit each other, probably often. It happens, especially in households that are rampant with substance abuse. Seen it a million times, usually the woman will instigate the physical part since she knows the guy "can't" retaliate, and eventually the guy just loses it and says "to hell with this", at which point the woman will pull the "How could you? I'm a woman!" card. My mother legit tried to kill my father I don't know how many times, and more than once he had to shove her to the ground or grab her by the hair just to get her to stop hitting him or trying to push him down the stairs or whatever. Sh*t happens. Especially when people are drunk and/or on drugs.

Not saying it's Right or Wrong, just saying that I saw stuff like this a lot growing up, in my family and others, and especially when there's substances involved there's no "innocent" party. What I see in this case are two "professionally intoxicated" people who had some hot sex on a movie set and decided to get married based on just that, despite having serious personality conflicts and very little in common. They're both habitual liars and can't seem to stay faithful to a partner, so this was definitely never going to end well no matter what.

I feel no sympathy for either of them.

She's everything wrong with modern feminism.
