Johny Depp in court – level 1

26-04-2022 07:00

Johny Depp is an American actor. He is very popular. In the past, his wife is Amber Heard.

Six years ago, Heard writes for the Washington Post. She writes that Depp abuses her. She says that Depp likes drugs and alcohol. Depp sometimes drinks too much. Also, he hits her.

A trial starts last week in Virginia. The trial costs about 50 million dollars. Depp’s lawyers say that Heard wants to hurt his good reputation.

Depp speaks in court last week. He says that he never hits his ex-wife or anyone. He says that some people behave differently to him. He says that Heard only wants money and to be more popular.

Difficult words: abuse (to behave very badly towards someone), trial (a court event to decide if someone something bad), reputation (what people think about someone or something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
