Aquaman star Amber Heard's messy personal issues with former husband Johnny Depp have once again been making headlines as of late. Now, according to the latest development, the actor Pirates of the Caribbean star was denied permission to appeal against a High Court that ruled he assaulted ex-wife Amber Heard. This is in relation to the actor's libel case against UK tabloid The Sun that published a 2018 article describing Depp as a "wife-beater".



 

Heard, who has been very busy with her acting commitments and such has tried her best to avoid talking about the issue in previous interviews but following the latest court ruling, the Justice League actress is finally breaking her silence and according to her camp, the ever-so-controversial actress is very pleased that her ex-husband has lost his attempt of seeking an appeal.

In an official statement, Amber's camp told Yahoo! News: "We are pleased — but by no means surprised — by the Court's denial of Mr. Depp’s application for an appeal. The evidence presented in the UK case was overwhelming and undeniable. To reiterate, the original verdict was that Mr. Depp committed domestic violence against Amber on no fewer than 12 occasions and she was left in fear of her life. The verdict and lengthy, well-reasoned Judgment, including the Confidential Judgment, have been affirmed. Mr. Depp's claim of new and important evidence was nothing more than a press strategy, and has been soundly rejected by the Court."

However, despite this new court ruling, it's too early for Amber to celebrate as Depp's 50 million-dollar defamation lawsuit against her is far from over. In fact, the former couple is set to trade barbs and evidence beginning April 11, 2022, with the upcoming trial is expected to last about two weeks. We still have no idea how that one plays out but hopefully, the end is near for this entire ordeal and justice will finally prevail.

Meanwhile, Amber appears in Zack Snyder's Justice League, streaming on HBO Max.
