What allegations against Johnny Depp were proved?


Johnny Depp is applying for permission to appeal against a High Court ruling on his libel claim against the publisher of The Sun which found the actor assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard on a dozen occasions.

News Group Newspapers (NGN) originally relied on two alleged incidents of domestic violence during the marriage, on April 21 and May 21 2016, but later added other allegations to their written defence.

In November, Mr Justice Nicol concluded that “the great majority of alleged assaults of Ms Heard by Mr Depp have been proved to the civil standard”.

But he said he was “not persuaded” that an alleged “incident of violence” in Los Angeles in December 2014 “constituted a physical assault of Ms Heard by Mr Depp”.

The judge also said he could not rule an alleged incident in LA in November 2015 had been proven because it was not put to Mr Depp in cross-examination.

Here are the details of the 14 allegations which were relied on by NGN, and the judge’s findings in relation to each of them.

Ms Heard said Mr Depp was completely sober until early 2013, and around that time he hit her for the first time when they were in Los Angeles.

The court heard this happened after Ms Heard joked about a tattoo on Mr Depp’s arm from his relationship with actress Winona Ryder which originally read “Winona Forever” but was altered to “Wino Forever” after they split.

She claimed Mr Depp later cried and apologised, telling her that he sometimes turns into “the monster” when he snaps.

Mr Depp “expressly denied” hitting Ms Heard and said that, around early 2013, he had “confined himself to drinking wine and using marijuana, having been sober from around December 2011 to August 2012”.
