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,” the actor 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.
