Johnny Depp recorded affidavit in defamation case

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has recorded an affidavit in his defamation suit filed in a US court against his ex-wife Amber Heard and told the court that he had never abused his ex-wife.

The trial of Johnny Depp began on April 13 in Fairfax County, Virginia.

The trial is being heard by a seven-member jury, while four additional members are also part of the jury. Over the past week, several witnesses, including Johnny Depp’s sister in the case, have recorded their statements in court, and on April 19, Johnny Depp recorded his first affidavit.

According to the French news agency ‘Agency France-Presse’ (AFP), Johnny Depp recorded the affidavit and told the court that he did not had done it to Amber Heard and had never tortured any other woman.

The actor admitted that their relationship was strained but at the same time said that he never raised his hand against Amber Heard.

Johnny Depp denies allegations of sexual and physical abuse by his wife, calling them completely false.

He said the allegations of sexual and physical violence by his ex-wife were a source of concern to him and he was shocked to hear them.

He claimed on the first day of his affidavit that he had never committed any act of violence against a woman.

The Associated Press (AP) reports that Amber Heard was in the courtroom when Johnny Depp’s affidavit was recorded.

Johnny Depp was dressed in black at the time of the affidavit while he had his hair tied with a ponytail and he seemed satisfied.

During the hearing, his ex-wife Amber Heard appeared in a white robe and was seen talking to others, including her lawyer, in a pleasant mood.

Johnny Depp is expected to record the affidavit in a few more days, after which Amber Heard will record her statement.

Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, could also appear in court for an affidavit in the trial, as Johnny Depp has previously claimed that his ex-wife, Amber Heard, had an affair with him.

Actor James Franco is also likely to be sworn in in court, as Johnny Depp has claimed that he also had an affair with his ex-wife.

The trial is expected to last 6 to 8 weeks, with the case likely to be decided by the end of July or mid-August 2022.

The last hearing of the case was held at the end of 2020 before the formal trial began, after which its hearings were postponed due to Corona.
