Johnny Depp has filed a $50 million defamation suit against his ex, Amber Heard, claiming her domestic abuse accusations were “elaborate hoax”.

According to The Blast, Depp is suing over an article Heard wrote in the Washington Post in December 2018.

“Ms. Heard purported to write from the perspective of ‘a public figure representing domestic abuse’ and claimed that she ‘felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out’ when she ‘spoke up against sexual violence.’” a court document reads.

Depp also said in the suit that Heard’s “false allegations” were deliberately made to generate publicity and advance her career.

The lawsuit strongly states that she is the one who attacked him, claiming, “Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse; she is a perpetrator.”
