Last year, the US actor lost his libel case against the publisher of The Sun over an article that labelled him a "wife beater".
Mr Depp asked the Court of Appeal for permission to challenge the ruling.
But on Thursday, a judge refused his application and said his appeal had "no real prospect of success".
The justices, James Dingemans and Nicholas Underhill said the earlier court hearing was “full and fair” and the trial judge’s conclusions “have not been shown even arguably to be vitiated by any error of approach or mistake of law"
Heard's reps recently released a statement to Yahoo saying;
"We are pleased but by no means surprised by the Court's denial of Mr. Depp’s application for appeal. The evidence presented in the UK case was overwhelming and undeniable."
The statement further also called Depp's claim of new evidence a "press strategy." Depp's lawyers had recently whilst asking for a retrial also mentioned how Heard hadn't donated her USD 7 million divorce settlement to charity, as claimed by her earlier and called it a “calculated and manipulative lie” on her part.
Responding to those claims, Heards' team stated that the delay in donation happened because Depp filed a lawsuit against her in Virginia for defamation over her Washington Post op-ed on domestic violence seeking USD 50 million. The statement further added that this forced Heard to "spend millions of dollars defending [his] false accusations against her." Depp's US lawsuit against Heard has currently been postponed to April 2022.
And now it seems Amber Heard is not ready to hold anything back and is using twitter to unload her feelings, According to reports Amber Heard got triggered after Johnny Depp‘s lawyer tweeted about her and tried to discount her allegations against her ex-husband. Heard did not waste time and clapped back.
Lets get into the story.
Adam Waldman, who was previously on Johnny‘s legal team, tweeted after the news was announced and the tweet reads, “12/15/15 allegation ‘I had bruised ribs. Bruises all over my body, bruises on my forearms from trying to defend the blows. I had 2 black eyes. I had a broken nose. I had a broken lip.’ Justice Nichols – I believe her. UK Appeals Court – we believe him. But oops … PHOTO SHOOT!”
Tweet also included two photos of Amber posing on the beach.
Amber responded to the tweet and said, “Yes Mr Waldman, I may be wearing makeup on this occasion but on every occasion you will still be short.”
Now the case is out of the court, it looks like we will be witnessing a lot of exchanges and heated arguments on social media, there is a huge army of social media activists routing for Johnny Depp and asking for justice while the legal set up in UK has given their judgement in favor of amber heard.
No one knows where it is going to end but one thing is for sure, it is not ending anytime soon.
