Johnny Depp wins lawsuit against Amber Heard
American actor Johnny Depp, who turns 59 on June 9, received a truly luxurious gift by winning a libel case against ex-wife Amber Heard.
The court ruled that Johnny did not beat her and did not sexually abuse her, and also ordered the actress to pay her ex-husband $ 15 million, reports the Daily Mail. All media that printed her untruthful essay should give a retraction.
The jury spent a little less than three days discussing the verdict. As for Heard, she was awarded $2 million in damages instead of the $100 million she demanded in a counterclaim against her ex-husband.
Only Heard was present at the jury’s verdict, while Depp was in the UK on tour with legendary guitarist Jeff Beck. According to sources, this was planned much earlier than the date of the last meeting was known. The actress appeared in court in a black dress and looked agitated, and during the announcement of the verdict, she looked at the floor without raising her eyes.
The jury’s decision was the culmination of a six-week trial that was broadcast live on multiple platforms.
