The article in question did not mention Depp's name but his lawyers claim that it was clear Heard was referring to Depp. The actor then made a $50 million dollar defamation suit against Heard. Depp's lawyers claim that the article damaged his acting career and his reputation in media. Johnny Depp was also dropped from Fantastic Beasts film franchise after the article. He was called 'wife beater' by The Sun in UK as well.
