Live updates on the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial: today’s breaking news, compensation, deliberations, jury verdict… Amber expresses her disappointment at the deep win.
In the high-profile court case against Amber Heard, a seven-person civil jury (five men and two women) ruled in favor of Johnny Depp.
They determined that he was correct on all three counts raised by Depp’s legal team and awarded him $15 million in compensation. On one count, Heard’s countersuit was successful, and she was awarded $2 million.
Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and the lives of those who had supported and believed in me for many, many years were forever changed.
All in the blink of an eye. False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. It had already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career. And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled.” Johnny Depp, said in a Statement.
