Johnny Depp has reportedly appealed for the $2M the Virginia Jury awarded to Amber Heard at the end of their trial in June.
Yes, we’re back to discussing the updates from the mess that is the ‘Depp vs Heard defamation trial’. It seems that although the case has been dismissed with Johnny Depp emerging as the victor, the case is still going on endlessly with both parties, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, continuously being in the media due to this trial.
Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard
Johnny Depp was accused of performing acts of domestic violence and even sexual violence by his, now, ex-wife Amber Heard in 2018 in an op-ed she released and although Johnny Depp was never mentioned by his name, he was the one who faced the repercussions of this decision.
Johnny Depp filed for defamation against The Sun when the magazine labeled him as a “wife-beater” and damaged his reputation in Hollywood but lost. Then again he filed the same trial against Amber Heard. And although he won this case, Amber Heard apparently had a meeting to have the amount she had to pay him reduced.
This time the whole trial was made public and was covered by every form of media. the ‘Depp vs Heard’ case was so famous in the last few months that almost no one was left safe from the shadow of this cloud. Everyone had their opinions, there were Depp supporters and then, although not as many, Heard supporters. Johnny Depp’s fans were, however, very much relentless when it came to trolling his ex-wife.
There were even hashtags going around such as #AmberHeardIsALiar and #JohnnyDeppIsAnAbuser or #IStandWithAmberHeard and #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser.
It’s not wrong to say that this whole trial was a complete and utter mess.
Johnny Depp Appeals $2M Awarded To Amber Heard
It has been recently reported that Johnny may not be willing to sit back after ex-wife Amber Heard has appealed the decision made by the court to disregard the claims she made about Johnny Depp abusing her during their marriage. It is clear that Johnny Depp is unwilling to let Amber Heard get away with tormenting him, anymore.
Johnny Depp is asking for the $2M that was granted to his ex-wife at the end of the case. The plaintiff that was submitted to the court read as follows: “Plaintiff and Counterclaim-Defendant John C. Depp, II, by counsel, hereby appeals to the Court of Appeals of Virginia from all adverse rulings and from the final judgment order of this Circuit Court entered on June 24, 2022.”
Amber Heard, since the day she lost the trial, is supposed to pay Johnny Depp the amount of $10.35 million which she is obviously not able to pay and may consider other ways to pay Johnny Depp.
