Los Angeles: American actress Amber Heard, the ex-wife of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp, is taking a break from social media while saying she has ‘always had love for Johnny’, reports ‘Variety ‘.

Taking to her Instagram, Amber shared a lengthy note regarding her ongoing legal battle with her ex-husband where she also thanked her supporters. She wrote: “I will be logging off for the next few weeks. As you may know, I will be in Virginia where I will face my ex-husband Johnny Depp in court.

Listing the details of a defamation case filed against her by Johnny, she further shared in the note, “Johnny is suing me for an op-ed I wrote in the Washington Post, in which I recounted my experience of violence and domestic violence. I never named him, rather I wrote about the price women pay for speaking out against men in power. I continue to pay that price, but I hope that when this case unfolds finish, I can move on and so can Johnny.”

“I have always harbored a love for Johnny and it pains me greatly to have to live the details of our past life together in front of the word,” the post continues. “At this time, I acknowledge the continued support I have been blessed to receive throughout these years, and over the next few weeks I will be leaning on it more than ever,” she concluded.

According to Variety, Depp is pursuing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard. The actress’ plea to dismiss the lawsuit after Depp lost her UK libel suit was dismissed. The case is expected to open Monday in Fairfax County, Virginia. Depp launched a legal battle against Heard after the actress wrote a Washington Post op-ed in 2018 claiming she was a survivor of domestic violence. Although Heard didn’t mention Depp by name in the article, she accused him of domestic violence after he filed for divorce in 2016.

In November 2020, Depp lost a UK libel case against the publisher of The Sun, a British tabloid who alleged he was a “wife beater” in a 2018 article. The judge ruled that the words were “essentially true”.
