“I think both drink alcohol … it’s a volatile relationship. I’ve had such a relationship with my husband,” Osbourne continued. “I’ll give him what he gave me. He knocked me down. I’ll push him back. And so do some. If there’s enough love, you’ll get over it with help. But obviously it’s not like keeping them together. I understand why he sued … what happens, only those two know. “
Depp sued Sun and executive editor Dan Wootton for defamation because the actor was considered a “wife beater” in an article. The judge in the case, Andrew Nicol, released his verdict on Monday and disagreed with Depp. “The Claimant was unsuccessful in his actions because of defamation,” wrote Nicol. “Although he proved the essentials of the cause of his actions in defamation, the Defendants showed that what they proclaimed in the sense that I kept the right words. really right. “
When the case was tried in July, Nicol heard “overwhelming evidence” that Depp assaulted Heard during their marriage. Nicol writes, referring to the incident that occurred in 2015 in Australia when Depp was accused of beating Heard and pulling her hair. “I also accept that Ms. Heard’s accusations have negatively affected the career of an actress and her activist,” he wrote.
The case extends further details about Depp and Heard’s marriage, which lasted from February 2015 until it was completed in January 2017. However, it really focused on an article by Sun claims that there is “overwhelming evidence” that Depp has abused and that he should. removed from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The Sun said the article was “accurate and true.”
Depp’s British lawyer told The New York Times the decision was “false because it was confusing” and would be “ridiculous” if Depp did not appeal. Depp is also suing Heard for defamation in the US against her Washington Post Office op-ed, in which she writes that she “speaks out against sexual violence – and faces the outrage of our culture. That must change.”
