Johnny Depp is now free from every case his ex-wife Amber Heard had levelled against him. Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of domestic violence. Amber wrote an article on domestic violence for a newspaper in which she accused Johnny Depp.
In this way, the actor filed a defamation case against Amber Heard for tarnishing the image of Johnny Depp. Johnny has won this case, and now Amber Heard has to pay 10.35 million dollars as compensation to the actor. However, Amber’s lawyer claims that the actress cannot pay the amount. The statement of Johnny Depp’s lawyer Benjamin has come out on this.
Johnny Depp fought a case to improve his image.
In one of his interviews, Johnny Depp’s lawyer has said that Amber Heard does not need to pay defamation money. The biggest thing for Depp was his image; this trial was not for money. The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard case, which lasted for six weeks, was decided by the jury in favour of Johnny Depp.
During the trial, it came to light that she was facing financial problems. Recently, Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked Johnny Depp’s attorney, Benjamin Chew, if the actor was ready to settle if Amber Heard didn’t file an appeal in court for compensation money. Replying to this, Benjamin indicated that it could happen.
Johnny’s lawyer on the show said we couldn’t disclose any of the attorney and client interactions. Still, as Depp testified and as we both made clear in our respective closings, this trial was not for money but to restore his image. And he did this.
Johnny and Amber’s first meeting took place in the year 2009.
Let us tell you that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard first met in the year 2009 on the set of the film The Rum Diary. After this, both of them started dating each other, and in the year 2015, both of them got married. Both had married only between close people on a private island.
