Johnny Depp recently sued Amber Heard over accusations of defamation – and won the verdict. The trial was broadcasted publicly and it seemed like everyone was watching it unfold. As a result, Heard has become increasingly less popular by public opinion, and now it appears things have gotten even worse for the Aquaman actress. It’s been reported that Amber Heard will likely face perjury charges in Australia.
As noted via ET, there are ongoing investigations over Amber Heard regarding the illegal importation of her two dogs into Australia which occurred in 2015. This was revealed via a spokesperson at the Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.
Because the case is “ongoing,” it technically could go either way, but it certainly doesn’t sound like a good situation for Amber Heard.
As the details behind the case were explained:
“Heard and Depp were still married in May 2015 when she brought their two dogs, Pistol and Boo, into the country without declaring them, despite the country having a strict quarantine policy. The Yorkshire Terriers failed to go through customs and adhere to Australia’s required 10-day quarantine. In July 2015, the actress was officially charged with two counts of illegally importing the animals, but after pleading guilty to falsifying travel documents in court, the case was closed.”
Johnny Depp previously claimed in September 2015 that they believed to have had all the proper paperwork. Furthermore, both he and Amber Heard issued an apology video in April 2016. Nevertheless, it seems that hasn’t been enough, and Australia’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment is still actively looking into what happened. This is thus the latest legal issue to pop up in Amber Heard’s life. Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek then for further updates on this matter as we have them.
As for Johnny Depp, he’ll soon be in the midst of his own new lawsuit this month, where he’ll be up against 2018 colleague Gregory Brooks. Brooks, who was a location manager on City of Lies, alleges that Johnny Depp verbally abused him and even physically assaulted him with several punches.
