Johnny Depp’s career was hurt more by his own lawsuits than Amber Heard’s comment, an expert has said.
On Monday (May 23), entertainment consultant Kathryn Arnold dismissed Depp’s 2020 lawsuit during Depp’s libel trial against Heard The sun was “a really difficult question” in his career.
Depp lost his libel battle against the publisher of The sun newspaper for an article claiming he was a “wife beater”. The judge concluded that the allegation was “essentially true.”
On the 20th day of the new lawsuit, Arnold said of the 2020 trial, “Every allegation of abuse, text, email, audio and visuals have been exposed and released. The industry has been watching closely and it’s hard for studios, especially one like Disney, to connect with a star who has lyrics about burned bodies and violent behavior.”
She added: “Every time Mr. Depp files a lawsuit because he is such a high-profile public figure, the spotlight turns to him, whether against his CEO or his former attorney, even if he filed his talent agent.” , it becomes news…
“Then look at the details. The erratic behavior, the financial problems, the alcohol and drug abuse were an integral part of it all and it was exposed time and time again.”
Heard is being sued by Depp for $50million (£40.1million) over claims he molested her in 2018 Washington Post op ed. Although she did not give his name, he claims her allegations affected his ability to work.
When asked what impact Heard’s comment had on Depp’s claim for which he lost revenue Pirates of the Caribbean 6, said Arnold: “Zero. The movie doesn’t exist yet, that’s one reason, but just as important is the fact that Disney didn’t have any comment on its file for that trial… the talks about Depp not being in the franchise were discussions before the comment even came out.”
Regarding the impact of the comment on Depp’s career, she said: “Very little. Hardly anyone knew the comment existed before filing the lawsuit, if anyone I knew, but certainly not Disney.
