The origin of the problem
Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for libel in Virginia for a December 2018 editorial she posted on Washington Post in which he described himself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” The actors met in 2009 and married between 2015 and 2016.
At the trial, Depp’s lawyers claimed that the plaintiff was vilified by the article even though he is never mentioned by name. Even though the jury was on Depp’s side and determined that the actress should pay him a sum close to ten million dollarsHeard also received $ 2 million for statements from one of Depp’s attorneys that they also considered defamatory.
In statements after the sentence, the actress assured about the program Today NBC that “until death I will remain true to every word of my testimony. I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always told the truth”. So she told the bike driver, Savannah Guthrie.
For his part, Johnny Depp has not made any formal statements on the case, but his environment has lost some of his words: “The verdict gave me back my life”.
