The court claimed the article published by The Sun to be ‘substantially true’

Recently, the actor lost the legal battle against The Sun who published an article accusing Johnny Depp of beating his wife.

The article that was published in 2018 read as ‘Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be ‘genuinely happy’ casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?’ after Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard accused him of domestic abuse.

Johnny Depp immediately sued The Sun’s publisher, News Group Newspapers (NGN), as well as executive editor Dan Wootton, however, the final decision was not in favor of Depp as the court claimed the article to be ‘substantially true.’
