Johnny Depp was denied his libel appeal and ordered to pay $ 840,000

Johnny Depp recently lost a trial with a tabloid calling him a “wife-beater.” Recall that the publication, based on the stories of Amber Heard, published a story about how the actress suffered from domestic violence in her relationship with Depp. As absurd as this public story may seem, a London court found it true and sided with Hurd.

It has now emerged that Depp will not be able to appeal the decision of the London court. Also, according to Time, he was ordered to pay more than $ 800,000 in legal costs.

After the defeat in court, the actor had to give up his role in the third part of “Fantastic Beasts”. It is already known that the star of “Hannibal” Mads Mikkelsen will take his place. And Amber, despite the efforts of Johnny’s fans, remains in the cast of Aquaman and will soon begin work on the second part of the film. Recall that Depp fans launched more than one petition demanding to fire Hurd from Aquaman. However, Amber is confident that Depp is behind this. In September, she filed a $ 100 million lawsuit against him, accusing him of libel and online harassment.

Depp himself makes it clear that he does not consider his defeat a decisive event in life. “I am determined and will prove that all charges against me are false. My life and career are not defined by this moment in time, ”Johnny wrote on his Instagram. His lawyer previously noted that they will try to start a new trial but in the United States.
