Johnny Depp is at the centre of a much talked about and controversial lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The actress has accused him of domestic violence during their relationship multiple times. The 58-year-old actor is suing his ex-wife for defamation over a Washington Post op-ed she wrote, in which she referred to herself as a victim of domestic violence, and she has counter sued her former spouse, with the legal battle currently taking place in Virginia.
Heard has alleged that Depp would punch her, kick her, head-butt her, grab clumps of her hair and, on one occasion, sexually assaulted her with a liquor bottle.
Depp has denied those allegations and accused her of assaulting him. Heard has countersued Depp for $100 million, alleging that his attorney defamed her when he alleged that she had orchestrated a "hoax."
