Amber Heard’s loss is estimated at $ 45 million due to negative statements by Johnny Depp and his attorney has been challenged in court as their long-running fight for libel ends on the 21st day.

Depp is suing Hurd for an article she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018 in which she claimed to have been a victim of domestic violence – his lawyers say this is a false indication that he physically and sexually raped her when they were together.

Hurd claims to meet with Depp for $ 100 million (£ 80 million), saying she was disgraced when he called her a liar.

There were speculations that Hurd’s lawyers might call Depp as a witness, but on Monday her tea stopped her case without doing so.

British supermodel Kate Moss too reportedly has to testify video call on Wednesday – however, due to a change in the court schedule, she may be deprived as a witness at the last minute.

The court said about Hurd’s “lack of chemistry” in “Aquaman” – the court recently

Richard Marx, a longtime entertainment lawyer and Hollywood expert, appeared for the second time as a witness to the rebuttal to testify Katherine Arnold, an entertainment industry expert who testified yesterday.

She argued that Hurd was on a comparable career trajectory with actors such as Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Ana de Armas, Zendaya and Chris Pine. However, she claimed that the consequences of her long legal battles with her ex-husband cost Hurd up to $ 45 million (about £ 36 million).

Hurd’s career is “incomparable” to Momoa

Mr. Marx told the court that he disagreed with Ms. Arnold’s opinion Hurd would have earned $ 45 million over the next few years.

Most pay for films about superheroes and fantasy, but actors also take on independent films and “passion projects,” says Mr. Marx. It is unlikely that Hurd would then have made several film roles similar to Aquaman, he said.

He also said that her career is not comparable to the career of her partner in the film “Aquaman” Jason Momoa, who was already a big star and appeared in “Game of Thrones”.

Why are Depp and Hurd back in court?

He added that Momoa played Aquaman, not a “secondary character like Mera”, Gadot was a miracle woman, and Zendaya has one name, he told the court.

The Warner Bros. boss described “lack of chemistry” in Hurd with his colleague.

Walter Hamada, president of DC-based filmmaking, said they seem to have great chemistry in the film – but it “took a lot of effort to achieve that” in post-production.

Hurds team says witness “wanted to be on TV”

The court also heard Morgan Knight, who previously owned Hicksville Trailer Park, where the couple stopped in 2013.

Earlier, Hurd told the court that Depp was “taking drugs,” and was “angry” and “envious” when one of her friends touched her. He threw his glasses at Hurd, tore her dress and damaged the cabin in which they stopped, she claimed.

Mr Knight said he had never seen Depp violent and had done minimal damage, with the exception of one $ 62 (£ 39) sconce, which he put on Depp’s agent’s credit card.

Elaine Bredehoft, one of Hurd’s lawyers, said Mr Knight contacted a Twitter user called “This Umbrella Guy” who she said was “pro-Depp” defending Depp and said he was with him last night in the trailer -Hicksville Park and it was audible. who “behaved jealous and mad.”

She said Mr. Knight is just here because he wants to be on TV. She also said that Mr. Knight made a film in 1999 called Matters Of Consequence, and that Depp’s ex-wife Lori Ann Allison worked on it as a dressing room. Mr. Knight confirmed that this was correct.

The surgeon who operated on Depp very controversial cut off finger said Depp was struggling to grab someone with a cast on his arm – disputing Hurd’s allegations that Depp was violent with her after the injury.

The surgeon told the court that the pin had been in Depp’s finger for about 11 or 12 days, but said the treatment continued after it was removed for several months.

Hurd accused Depp of violence in Los Angeles in March 2015 after their return from Australia, and a court showed photos of damage to Hurd’s wardrobe at their penthouse in Los Angeles.

Depp sadly injured his finger during an argument with Amber Heard when he was in Australia to shoot the fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean, but both sides accuse the other of causing harm.

The case is due to end on Friday.
