Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.  Closing arguments 

Judgement November 2: Johnny Depp has lost his libel case against the Sun newspaper over an article that called him a “wife beater”. 

Judge Mr Justice Nicol said the Sun had proved what was in the article to be “substantially true”.  A spokesperson for the Sun thanked Ms Heard for “her courage”.

The trial was heard over 16 days in July at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

July 28: This was outside the High Court in London on Tuesday, July 28. Actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard presented their closing arguments in Depp’s libel trial against The Sun newspaper.

Around 30 fans of the actor were gathered in the main hall of the Royal Courts of Justice and screamed as the 57-year-old Hollywood star entered the building.  It was on the final day of the most high-profile British libel trial so far in the 21st Century.

Amber Heard spoke to the media at the end of the hearing: It has been incredibly painful to re-live the breakup of my relationship. I stand by my testament and place my faith in British justice.

Depp brought the lawsuit against the publication over a 2018 article.  It claimed he was abusive to Heard. She testified in defence of the publisher.  Heard spoke about the occasions in which she alleges Depp attacked or threatened to kill her.

An article in the Sun describing Johnny Depp as a “wife-beater” was “one-sided” and “not researched at all”, the actor’s lawyer told the High Court.

Mr Justice Nicol has said that his judgement will be reserved for a later date.
