The controversy that has marked the course of the relationship between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has also occupied a large space in the media spectrum of the year 2022. The trial between the couple occupied the front page of most of the media. Social networks echoed every step of the story and search engines were constantly filled with their names to discover as much information as possible.
However, although it has been half a year since the trial took place, this story is not over. The latest we know is that Amber has gone to court again to counter-sue her insurer, claiming that it has not complied with what was previously agreed upon in the trial. For this reason and to recap, from The Look we have decided to compile all the information that has been generated in the last year, so that we do not miss any detail.
Amber Heard, leader in searches during 2022
The course of events that give shape to the problematic between Depp and Heard has caused the whole world to focus on discovering each of its episodes, past, present and future.
So much so that even Amber Heard's name has been the most searched for throughout the year 2022. This has also happened, although to a lesser extent, with Johnny Depp. The 'Aquaman' actress and the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star have been two of the most influential people in the media focus of the year.
The story between Heard and Depp
It was in 2009, on the set of the movie 'The Rum Diaries', when life crossed their paths. Everything seemed to move forward idyllically between the two until, seven years later, in 2015, they decided to get married in a secret ceremony, in front of their closest friends.
Although the couple seemed to be very happy, after a few years Amber filed for divorce and accused her then husband of having beaten her on several occasions. In addition, she assured that Johnny had a problem with alcohol and drugs and this made him a very violent person.
Depp always denied everything, but there was a large part of the public that did not believe his words. For his part, he claimed to be the victim of a "violent and manipulative" woman. Finally, the trial held in the middle of the year ruled in Depp's favor and his ex-wife was declared "responsible" for defaming the actor.
Amber returns to court
After several months have passed since that trial, Amber has returned to court and relived that dramatic episode of her life. This time, the reason is because she has decided to counter-sue her insurer.
The reasons are that, according to the actress, it has not complied with the pre-trial agreement. In this sense, she demands the payment of the civil liability policy that she had contracted in order to have a defense in the defamation lawsuit.
Two docuseries and a movie about the trial between Amber and Johnny
This story has had so much repercussion that HBO Max even premiered 'Johnny vs Amber' and 'Johnny vs Amber - trial in the USA', two docuseries that deal with the trial starring both of them.
In addition to this, a film was also released on the Tubi platform, titled 'Hot Take - The Depp/Heard Trial', which takes a look at their relationship both in and out of the trial.
We don't know if this is the end of the controversial chapter of Depp and Heard's lives, but what we do know is that it will be remembered, for a long time, as one of the stories that has aroused more interest among the media and society.
