On the verge of facing yet another trial in the long-running lawsuit against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard talks about what’s to come. The actress, who currently stars in the DC Cinematic Universe as Mera, the female lead in Aquaman, has been in the spotlight many times for his personal life as well as his career. Since 2016, she has been in a legal battle after the end of her relationship with the actor known for playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the franchise. Pirates of the Caribbean.
Yesterday (9), with the trial set to begin this week, Heard posted a statement on social media addressing the matter.
“I will be off social media for the next few weeks,” she said in her post. “As you may know, I will be in Virginia where I will face my ex-husband Johnny Depp in court. Johnny is suing me over an editorial I wrote for the Washington Post, in which I recounted my experience with domestic violence and abuse. I never mentioned his name. Instead, I wrote about the price women have to pay for exposing men in power.”.
“I keep paying this price”, she continued. “But I hope that when this case is over, I can move on and so can Johnny. I’ve always had a love for Johnny and it brings me great pain to have to relive details of our lives spent together in front of the world. At this moment, I acknowledge the recurring support I have been lucky enough to receive over the years, and in the coming weeks I will need it more than ever.”.
The trial begins Monday at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia. It takes place three years after Depp opened the case, and has a star-studded witness list, including Heard’s ex-partner Elon Musk, actors James Franco, Paul Bettany, WandaVisionand Ellen Barkin.
