Sharon Osbourne compared Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s ‘volatile relationship’ to her marriage with Ozzy at one time.

Sharon described Heard and Depp’s marriage as ‘very vulnerable’ as she said: ‘I think that they were both drinking… it’s a volatile relationship. I had a relationship like that with my husband at one time.
‘I would give him what he gave me. He’d shove me. I’d shove him back. And some people are like that. If there is enough love, you work through it with help. But there obviously wasn’t that love to keep them together. I understand why he did sue… whatever went on, only those two know.’
Depp had sued News Group Newspapers, publisher of The Sun, and its executive editor, Dan Wootton, over a 2018 article accusing him of assaulting Heard, which labelled him as a ‘wife beater’.

In his ruling the judge found Depp had attacked his ex-wife Heard a dozen times and said he accepted that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor became a ‘monster’ when he binged on drink and drugs.
Depp called the judgment ‘perverse’ and ‘bewildering’ as he vowed the appeal the ruling after his high-stakes battle against his ex-wife Heard and The Sun newspaper.
Following a blockbuster 16-day trial London’s High Court Mr Justice Nicol said he accepted that the actor had hit Heard on 12 of the 14 times she had claimed.
After the court hearing, Heard’s lawyers said they were ‘not surprised’ by her stunning victory in which the judge found she had been beaten by the actor while he was out of control on cocaine, pills and booze.
But Depp’s lawyers blasted the judge, saying, calling the ruling ‘as perverse as it is bewildering’.

In a statement, the raging actor’s lawyers Schillings said: ‘Most troubling is the Judge’s reliance on the testimony of Amber Heard, and corresponding disregard of the mountain of counter-evidence from police officers, medical practitioners, her own former assistant, other unchallenged witnesses and an array of documentary evidence which completely undermined the allegations, point by point. All of this was overlooked
‘The judgment is so flawed that it would be ridiculous for Mr Depp not to appeal this decision.’

The result leaves Depp facing financial ruin, although neither party comes out of the tawdry spectacle completely untarnished as the court was told of allegations of drug-taking and infidelity on both sides.
