The actor Johnny Depp has lost his action against the Sun newspaper over an article which labeled him a ‘wife beater’ – an accusation he strongly denied.
Mr. Justice Nichol dismissed the actors claim, saying Newsgroup Newspapers proved what was in the article to be substantially true.
Dawn Neeson, the former editor of the Daily Star, a British tabloid, says the ruling will have a serious impact on the actor’s career.
‘Hollywood loves a hell-raiser, we all know that, but this is different,’ Neeson said in an interview with LBC Radio. She said the ruling will have a serious impact on the actor’s career. ‘You can be a drug taker, you can be a drinker in Hollywood but if you bring domestic violence into it there is a whole different shine on the thing. Will Johnny Depp ever come back from this? I think he’s got a very hard fight on his hands.’ (Famagusta Gazette)
