Will Rachel Riley be as quick to comment on her own libel trial as Johnny Depp’s?

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp: Rachel Riley has spent years trying to keep details of her libel case against me away from the public, but seems to think it’s fine to publicise information about this ongoing litigation.

Rachel Riley can’t keep her mouth shut at the moment.

After throwing shade on transgender activists and the makers of Strictly Come Dancing, she’s now taking the side of Amber Heard in that celebrity’s libel trial against Johnny Depp.

The trial isn’t over, so some might see Riley’s decision to tweet a thread containing the allegations of abuse by Depp against Heard, while saying she wouldn’t wish him on her worst enemy, as prejudicial; there seems to be no balancing evidence about what Heard is alleged to have done to Depp.

Of course, that trial is in a foreign country with different laws so, to answer the question in the headline, I don’t think she would comment on her own case while it is ongoing. That’s her case against This Writer – see this page for many details and to donate to my crowdfunded defence.

It’s a shame she can’t restrain herself from showing others that courtesy, though.

Her comments reminded me of a conversation with friends in which they asked me if I have any new evidence left to present to the judge in Riley’s libel trial against me, after all the updates I have published on my CrowdJustice page.

In fact, the only evidence mentioned there has been information that came out in previous court hearings and is now public knowledge. I have plenty more to divulge.

And I wonder whether Riley will be so keen to have such information in the public eye when it refers to her and not an American movie star.

There is only one way to ensure my evidence is heard, though, and that – as always – is to make sure my defence against her is fully funded. Will you help?

You can do that several ways:

Make a donation via the CrowdJustice page. Keep donating regularly until you see the total pass the amount I need.

Email your friends, asking them to pledge to the CrowdJustice site.

Post a link to Facebook, asking readers to pledge.

On Twitter, tweet in support, quoting the address of the appeal.

Use other social media in the same way.

We’re getting close now; I reckon we have less than £6,000 – of more than £200k – to raise until the case is funded – barring the unexpected.

Let’s get there – so you can all find out, at long last, what Riley’s own lawsuit has really been about.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
