Johnny Depp sued the publisher of The Sun newspaper in the U.K. This case started from the article that the paper wrote a couple of years ago. In the headline, The Sun labeled the A-list actor as a ‘wife beater.’
Johnny Depp Accused Of Domestic Abuse
The lawsuit has been under process since early this year. The verdict was finally announced this month. Fans were disappointed that The Sun won because it clearly meant that Amber Heard’s claims are true. So far fans have voiced out their support for Johnny Depp and vowed to fight with him until he gets justice for what his ex-wife had done to him.

In the turn of events, tabloids reported that his loss in the case is allegedly making him broke. The court battle cost him too much. It’s being said that he cannot support the court trials much longer. His bank account is reportedly running out of funds already.
Drowning In Debts?
The 57-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor is now in a difficult situation. Apparently, he is drowning in debt after losing in the libel case he filed against the said publication based in the U.K.
Depp is losing everything in his quest to ruin his ex-wife Amber Heard. He still has another court battle to go through in Virginia. The Edward Scissorhands actor filed a $50 million defamation case over Amber Heard’s op-ed in The Washington Post that was published in 2018.
The Aquaman actress accused her ex-husband of domestic abuse and Johnny is out to clear his name by suing her for libel. But then, this legal process is supposedly draining his coffers.
Fact Of The Matter
It’s obviously true that he may have to spend a lot on this lawsuit to clear his name but the 21 Jump Street star has the funds to support his battles.
By no means is the Alice In Wonderland actor going broke. As a matter of fact, Depp was still paid in full even if Warner Bros. asked him to resign as one of the stars in the upcoming sequel of the Fantastic Beasts. This definitely means he did not lose money even if he lost the case in the U.K. Hence, his bank is full.
