Johnny Depp v Amber Heard Libel Case

Depp has been somewhat out of favour recently after losing his libel court case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.

He has been dropped from his role as Gellert Grindelwald in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise and he has reportedly been dropped from the next installment of the very successful “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, where he plays the starring role of Captain Jack Sparrow.

It seems however that the French fashion and fragrance brand, Dior are standing by Depp.

He appears in a new video clip promoting his Sauvage fragrance with Dior, much to the pleasure of his fans who are applauding the company for standing by him.

How much money does Johnny Depp have?

Johnny Depp has had a very successful acting career and is regarded as one of the highest paid actors on the planet. This has allowed him to amass a net worth of $200 million.

He has previously been able to command more than $50 million per film and often earned more than $100 million per year. This has allowed Depp to build a $75 million property portfolio. He owns 14 homes in places that include Los Angeles, France and an island he owns in the Bahamas.

The future for the megastar is looking uncertain though, due in part to losing his libel case against the Sun newspaper that involved his ex-wife Amber Heard.

Depp has already been forced to quit his role of dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts 3 film due to the lost libel case. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the film industry view him now and if it will lead to a lack of roles being offered to the actor.
