Johnny Depp wins $10m in defamation case

Johnny Depp: Six years ago my life and the life of my children was changed…six years later the jury has given me back my life.  The goal was to reveal the truth.  I feel at peace…notes the noble work of the court and everyone involved….the best is yet to come – truth never perishes.

Amber Heard: The disappointment I feel is beyond…..I’m heart broken. I’m disappointed in what this verdict means to others.  It set back the clock –  I’m sad I have lost this case. I’m sadder still…an affront to freedom of speech.

Verdict

Johnny Depp wins his libel case over an article in which his ex-wife said she was a victim of abuse. Jury found Heard did defame Johnny Depp in her op-ed article for Washington Post.

The jury awarded Depp ¢10m (£8m) in compensatory damages and #5m in punitive damages.

Amber Heard won one of her counterclaims for defamation against Johnny Depp and is awarded #2m.

Hugs all round among the Depp lawyers including Camille Vasquez who was the sharpest of them all!

The Jury delivered their verdict 8pm BST approximately.  Amber Heard is there but Johnny Depp is in UK and not travelling for the decision.

Johnny Depp has been in the UK playing gigs in Sheffield and Royal Albert Hall.  It’s said he’s staying to perform more shows and has met up with Kate Moss a former girlfriend and now good friend.

Fans have gathered

Maybe Johnny and Kate will watch the verdict live!

Actor Johnny Depp is suing ex-wife Amber Heard for $50 million for defamation in connection with Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed, in which she spoke out about being the victim of domestic violence. Heard’s article did not specifically name Depp as her alleged abuser, but according to Depp’s lawsuit, it relied “on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”

Amber Heard is counter-suing Depp for $100 million.

The defamation trial held at Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia and started April 11.
