Johnny Depp on Monday lost his court case against a British newspaper that called him an ‘’abusive partner’” and claimed there was “overwhelming evidence” that he had assaulted Amber Heard repeatedly during their marriage.

According to Andrew Bicol, the British judge—Johnny Depp’s assaults included head-butting the 34-years-old actress, repeatedly hitting her and tearing out clumps of her hair. In dismissing the case, he said the defendants had shown that what they published was “substantially true.”

The judge also acknowledged the risk that the Aquaman’s actress had taken in speaking up about the violence. “I also accept that Ms. Heard’s allegations have had a negative effect on her career as an actor and activist,” he said.

The publishers of The Sun, a British tabloid newspaper, and Dan Wootton, that newspaper’s executive editor, over a 2018 article also urged the author J.K. Rowling intervened and had the actor removed from the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie series, based on her book.

The newspaper’s legal team argued that the accusations in the article were “accurate and true.” Amber testified on the newspaper’s behalf and said in pretrial documents that Johnny had assaulted her on 14 occasions during their relationship starting before they were married. However, Johnny denied all of the claims, but the judge found that most of them did occur, citing a range of text messages from Johnny among the evidence.

The assaults “must have been terrifying,” the judge wrote regarding incidents in March 2015 in Australia, in which Amber said that Johnny assaulted her several times, including smashing a telephone beside her face. “I accept that Mr. Depp put her in fear of her life,” the judge wrote. Oh man, can’t wait for the overall result of the case.
