Sixth day in the mud battle defamation trial: Two employees protect Johnny Depp against allegations of ill-treating his wife at the time.
Employees of Hollywood star Johnny Depp defended him in court against his ex-wife Amber Heard's allegations of violence. He had never seen Depp hit his wife, bodyguard Malcolm Connolly said on Tuesday on the sixth day of the London defamation process. The former stylist's joint stylist also relieved the 57-year-old American actor.
The case is about an article from the British newspaper "Sun" from 2018, which Depp called "wife-beater". The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star accuses his 34-year-old ex-wife of having been the "aggressive part" of their conflicting relationship. Depp is suing the newspaper publisher, NGN, and Wootton for defamation. In the United States, Depp has initiated a separate libel case against Heard.
"I would not tolerate any man beating a woman. No matter who he is, I would simply not tolerate it, ”said Conolly, who previously worked in prison and has been a bodyguard for Depp and his family for around 16 years. "Not even if he's my boss. I don't care if he's the Pope. "
