was unable to attend the verdict.”
On June 1, 2022, the world was shocked to learn that Johnny Depp was absent from the verdict of his high-profile libel trial against The Sun newspaper. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor had been present for every part of the trial, but was unable to attend the verdict due to work commitments in London.
According to a source who spoke to People magazine, Johnny had made the work commitments prior to the trial, and was therefore unable to attend the verdict. This was a disappointment to many of his fans, who had been following the trial closely and had been hoping to see the actor present for the verdict.
The trial itself had been a long and drawn-out affair, with Johnny suing The Sun for libel after they published an article accusing him of domestic abuse. The actor had denied the allegations, and the trial had been a rollercoaster of emotions for both sides.
The verdict itself was a victory for Johnny, with the jury ruling in his favor and awarding him damages of £650,000. Despite not being present for the verdict, Johnny was delighted with the outcome and thanked his legal team for their hard work.
It is a shame that Johnny was unable to attend the verdict, but it is understandable given his prior work commitments. The actor is now looking forward to the future and is hoping to put this difficult chapter of his life behind him.
