Johnny Depp 'non-violent', says ex Paradis in United Kingdom libel case

Johnny Depp 'non-violent', says ex Paradis in United Kingdom libel case”

The article, which was titled "Gone Potty - How Can J.K. Rowling Be "Genuinely Happy" Casting Wife-Beater Johnny Depp in the New "Fantastic Beasts" Film?", was referencing allegations made against the star by his former wife, actress Amber Heard, which he denies.

Other matters in James's statement which go to the credibility of Heard in her dealings with the US Department of Homeland Security will also be included in the trial.

According to United Kingdom newspaper The Times, in a witness statement submitted as part of a remote hearing at Britain's High Court on Wednesday, Paradis, who shares two children with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, said he had never been abusive towards her.

The judge ruled that Ms James's evidence relating to her impression of Mr Depp and an allegation that Ms Heard provided altered vaccination certificates for the couple's pet dogs, could form part of Mr Depp's case.

"We've been partners for 14 years and we raised our two children together, " Paradis said, court documents show. He said that they will include Kate James' claims that she has not seen "a serious or messy fight" and never witnessed signs of physical violence.

Depp's lawyers also want to include evidence from Ryder, who was in a relationship with the star in the 1990s.

Both Vanessa and Winona said that Johnny Depp was never violent with them.

Mr Sherborne said Mr Killackey's witness statement referred to an incident after Ms Heard "asked for her auto to be released without payment", which Mr Killackey refused.

Mr Depp has brought separate libel proceedings against Ms Heard in the United States, which the court has previously heard are "ongoing".

"This is one of the defining characteristics of their strategy - to adduce irrelevant evidence created to smear Heard and distract from the facts so that people do not focus on Depp's behaviour".

Two weeks of hearings in the case were due to start in London's High Court in March but were suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak after two of Depp's legal representatives had to self-isolate.

Depp and Heard met on the set of 2011 comedy "The Rum Diary", and married in 2015. The trial is now set to take place from July 7, 2020, taking into account social distancing measures.

It's a shocking revelation considering that Heard had previously stated that Depp was the abusive one in the relationship.
