Johny Depp in court – level 2
Amber Heard was a wife of American actor Johny Depp. Six years ago, she wrote for the Washington Post that Depp abused her, which completely changed the couple’s lives.
Last week, a 50-million-dollar trial started in Virginia, and Depp spoke that he never hit his ex-wife or anyone. He said that Heard only wanted to damage his reputation, which already happened, since people behaved differently towards him.
Heard’s lawyers said that the actor liked drugs and alcohol, and he often drank or did drugs too much. Depp’s lawyers said that Heard accused Depp of domestic violence only because she wanted to get money from him, to become more popular, and to damage his reputation as an actor.
Difficult words: reputation (people’s opinion about someone or something), accuse (to formally say that someone did something wrong), domestic violence (violent behavior at home).
