Johnny Depp "Gratified" After Amber Heard Fails To Get $50M Defamation Suit Tossed, Again; 'Aquaman' Star Sought Dismissal Based On UK Libel Verdict

Johnny Depp is complaining that Hollywood is boycotting him, but a Virginia judge just handed the Minamata star a big win in his $50 million defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard.
