The verdict on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case was out and the public now has a final answer to this long-awaited six-week defamation trial. The trial has followed a ton of evidence being laid out for the media and the public to jeer at. However, no publicity is bad publicity, as the saying goes. And this especially seems to have worked out for Johnny Depp as he won victoriously in the defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard in the Fairfax, Virginia trial. The case was constructed on the basis of an op-ed that was published 4 years ago in the reputed publication, The Washington Post.
In the 2018 op-ed, Amber Heard stated “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to stop.” She also claimed that she has been a victim and survivor of domestic abuse and is now an ambassador of women’s rights at the American Civil Liberties Union.
How Much Money Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Lose After The Verdict
The jury has been out on the high-profile defamation case and Johnny Depp has been unanimously declared a winner. The actor had however already won in the court of public opinion long before the jury actually came out of the deliberation room.
Johnny Depp had filed a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard for $50 million. However, following through with the case, the court has asked Amber Heard to pay her ex-husband Johnny Depp $15 million in compensation and punitive damages. But due to legal restrictions, the sum was brought down to $10.35 million.
The court also awarded Amber Heard a sum of $2 million in damages following false allegations made against her by Depp’s lawyers. The latter claimed the actress had staged a fight scene at the couple’s apartment before calling 911.
