A British court has ruled against Hollywood actor Johnny Depp in his defamation case against a publication which labelled him as “Wife Beater”.

According to a report, Justice Andrew Nicol stated that the actor has not succeeded in his action for libel. He added that the defendants (the publication) had shown what they published was “substantially true.”

The ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ actor had sued News Group Newspapers, publisher of The Sun, and the newspaper’s executive editor, Dan Wootton, for an article published in April 2018 that accused him of assaulting his wife Amber Heard.

Amber’s US counsel Elaine Charlson Bredehoft said that the verdict is “not a surprise.” She further added that she will be giving more evidence in the US.
