Depp libel court case told of star’s drug and and drink-fuelled lifestyle

When Johnny Depp set about suing The Sun he hoped the legal action would clear his name.

The newspaper had published an article describing him as a “wife beater”, following allegations of domestic violence from his ex-wife Amber Heard.

He can’t have expected it to play out as it has, with the last few days in the High Court providing details of his drug and drink-fuelled lifestyle and the collapse of his marriage.

A warning: this report contains some disturbing details that were heard in court.
