After Johnny Depp lost his high-profile libel case against the publishers of The Sun newspaper over a 2018 article that described him as a “wife-beater,” p announced that he has been “asked to resign” from the upcoming “Fantastic Beasts 3.”
In a court filing, Heard wrote that she and Depp began dating “around the end of 2011 or the start of 2012.” It was also in 2012 that Depp and long-time partner publicly announced their separation after 14 years of dating.
USA Today reported that Heard was arrested in 2009 on a charge of physically assaulting then-girlfriend van Ree at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Washington. The two got into a disagreement after Heard allegedly grabbed and hit van Ree’s arm.
All charges were dropped, however, with van Ree herself saying that Heard was “wrongfully” accused by cops who “misinterpreted and over-sensationalized” the incident.
People magazine reported that Depp and Heard were engaged after a picture emerged of her pthe actress wearing an ornate engagement ring.
Depp himself seemed to confirm the engagement in a video interview with The Daily Mail, after discussing wedding planning and pointing out that he was wearing “a chick’s ring” on his finger.
On May 23, 2016, Heard filed for divorce from Depp and, four days later, obtained a temporary restraining order against the Oscar-nominated actor. She alleged that Depp had physically abused her during their relationship, and said it was usually while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
