Johnny Depp’s libel case in the U.K. came to a close on Tuesday after three weeks of dramatic testimony.
Depp sued over an article in the Sun that called him a “wife-beater” during his short-lived marriage to Amber Heard.
In her closing submission, the attorney for News Group Newspapers, owner of the Sun, said, “There is no doubt that Mr. Depp regularly and systematically abused his wife.”
In his closing submission, the actor’s lawyer called Heard a “compulsive liar” and said, “At its very core, we say it demonstrates that she is the abuser, not Mr. Depp. He is no wife-beater.”
Outside the court on Tuesday, Heard said that it was “incredibly painful to relive the break-up” of her relationship and the “most traumatic and intimate details” of her life with Johnny. She added, “I stand by my testimony and I now place my faith in British justice.”
A ruling isn’t expected for several weeks.
