Has he set up a go fund me yet? This is going to cost an arm and a leg

> “What woman has ever benefited from being a victim of domestic violence?” she asked in court.

Amanda is on the way to a sizable payout so it seems rather a rhetorical question...

I think anyone even remotely familiar w this case knows this decision is a farce

Depp has done industrial quantities of drugs over the years, which will not have helped his cause. This may be the kick in the pants he needs to clean up his act. Fingers crossed.

Wow, the judge bought AH lies hook, line & sinker......

Sadly society in the west has made women weaponized & dangerous to interact with, the good news is more & more men each day are seeing this and limiting interactions with women, its the only option, courts are openly hostile to men so the risks are extremely high

If drugs and booze make you start being abusive it’s time to stop taking them Johnny boy

Johnny has never been good with money.  looks like this was another waste.

I was inclined to believe him based on the reporting, shows what I know.

They both sound as bad as each other. Now he should start an abused case against Amber, because she was violent too

Reminds me of that old South Park where the female teacher was sleeping with one of her boy students. She’s reported to the police and the cops are like “she’s hot, what’s the problem? Nice.” Authorities really have no sympathy for men when the women are the abusers.

Depp should have heeded what happened to Oscar Wilde. Bringing a libel case is always a risk, unless you are squeaky clean you will lose, especially as English libel laws were tightened up in 2013. For all those demonising Heard, which was Depp’s only strategy in perusing the so called libel, please note that she did not bring on this case - he did, and that he was not suing Heard for libel, it was the publishers of The Sun and it’s editor, Dan Wooten, he was suing. Heard was merely a witness. Interestingly, Depp chose not to call anyone from The Sun, the publishers or Wooten as witnesses, which is very odd considering they were the ones he was suing. I’m not surprised by the decision. Anyone who still thinks it’s a farce should take a quick look at English libel laws.

Now Heard can go sleep with any women she wish. She won a lottery by pretending to be straight.

Poor Depp. Men can be so ignorant sometimes

That amber heard is a real piece of work. A liar, borderline, narcissist and professional victim.

Rarely do two people deserve each other so much as this pair...

some of the most popular family movies in recent times, from “Edward Scissorhands” to most lucratively the “Pirates of the Caribbean”

Edward Scissorhands was made in 1990.

There is no doubt at all Johnny is 100% innocent. Seems like a very corrupt decision. Amber Heard is a liar, and just wants his $Millions.

I think that you as a non UK citizen layman who has read a bit about it on the internet knows better than a legal court that heard the arguments under UK law. Seems legit.

A great actor, a great screen presence.

But a scumbag wife beater, all the same.
