Aquaman star Amber Heard's legal issues with former spouse Johnny Depp are far from over but as of now, the actress seems to be in a pretty comfortable spot. In fact, she currently has the upper hand as the Pirates of the Caribbean star was recently denied permission to appeal against a High Court that ruled out he assaulted Heard several years ago. This is in relation to the article published by The Sun in 2018 which labels Depp as a "wife-beater".
A few days ago, Amber broke her silence following the latest court ruling by posting her camp's official statement on social media, and by the looks of things, the Mera actress is beyond thrilled with the latest development.
Now, in one of Amber's latest Instagram updates, she once again took a massive shot at Depp by posting an image of herself with a noticeable bruise on her face. The said image was taken in 2016 and sees Amber wearing a black dress which she apparently wore when she filed domestic abuse charges against the actor. She also posted a new photo taken this week wearing the same clothes. Check it out here.
While I don’t mean to burst anyone’s bubble, it’s too early for Amber to rejoice in her “triumph” as Depp's 50 million-dollar defamation lawsuit against her will soon be revisited. In fact, the former couple is set to trade barbs and evidence beginning April of next year and the upcoming trial is expected to last about two weeks. Of course, we still don’t know how that one plays out but hopefully, this messy situation between the two won’t drag on for much longer.
Meanwhile, Amber appears in Zack Snyder's Justice League, streaming on HBO Max.
