Johnny Depp’s ex-fiancee Winona Ryder to appear at the High Court in London in support of the actor’s libel claim against the tabloid over an article that labelled him a 'wife beater'.

The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star is suing the tabloid over an April 2018 article which alleged he was violent towards ex-wife Amber Heard during their tumultuous relationship.

'Stranger Things' actress Ms Ryder, 48, who had a relationship with the Hollywood star in the 1990s, will give evidence in support of the actor’s case over a video link from Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The court has previously heard Mr Depp had a “Winona Forever” tattoo when the pair were an item, which he later changed to “Wino Forever”.

At a preliminary hearing in the case, part of Ryder’s witness statement was revealed in court documents, which read: “I cannot wrap my head around (Ms Heard’s) accusations.

“He was never, never violent towards me. He was never, never abusive at all towards me.”

The actress will give her evidence on Wednesday afternoon, after the court hears from Mr Depp’s former and current estate managers, Ben King and Kevin Murphy, in the morning session.
