I think Depp's big mistake was filing suit in the first place. As long as she believes what she said is true, and didn't knowingly slander Depp by knowingly lying, he has no case. And that's extremely difficult to prove. The bar for slander/libel is lower in the U.K., and he didn't win there against the Sun. The judge found substantial factual evidence that he had indeed hit Heard on more than one occasion. Any good P.R. advisor would have said to not blow it up into a big thing but to just let it go. Instead now it has gone viral and is taking up dozens of news cycles.I predict Depp will lose his lawsuit, and Heard will lose her countersuit, and neither will get a penny. From what they're saying in Hollywood, neither will ever work again, so maybe their only option to make money now is to do a reality show together?
