Why Johnny Depp took a stand
On April 19, Depp took a stand and explained why he chose to pursue the high-profile injury case.
“I felt it was my responsibility not only to stand up for myself in my case, but to stand up for my children who were 14 and 16 at the time,” the father of Lily-Rose Depp22 and Jack Depp20, with ex Vanessa Paradis, testified, NBC News reported. “They went to high school and I thought it was devilish for my kids to go to school and get their friends or people at school to approach them with the infamous People magazine cover with Miss Heard with a dark bruise on her face. “The cover, released in June 2016, featured a photo taken from Heard’s friend of the visibly injured actress.
Depp went on to say that he never reached the point of beating Heard “in any way,” nor has he ever beaten any woman in his life.
“It’s been six years of trials,” Depp said in court. “It’s really strange when one day you are Cinderella, so to speak, and zero point six seconds is Quasimodo. And I have not deserved it, not even my children, nor the people who have believed in me in all these “I did not want anyone to think that I had done them wrong, or that I had lied to them, or that I was a deceiver.”
