Johnny Depp has recently landed amid hot waters with UK courts after his “profoundly damaging” failure to disclose all drug related text messages was came to light.
Johnny Depp appears to be in breach of court orders after he failed to disclose all documentation and texts relating to drug use ahead of his trials.
The court’s decision came shortly before the actor’s defamation case against News Group Newspapers (NGN) and its executive editor, Dan Wootton, was to be tried.
Due to this, NGN’s legal representative Adam Wolanksi QC, demanded for Depp’s claim to be struck out since he did not comply with court rules and obligations and instead tried to obtain MDMA and cocaine. Adam argues this is “profoundly damaging to his case.”
The messages in question were exchanged between Depp and his assistant Nathan Holmes back in 2015, and were made ahead of Depp and Amber Heard’s trip to Australia which the plaintiff claims was “a three-day ordeal of physical assaults.”
After the court’s decision was made on Monday morning, it was agreed upon that although Depp “failed to comply fully with [his] obligation” his case was not to be declined or struck out due to this new information.
