Oh, you thought the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard saga was over? Well, the sequel is in full swing as Depp has officially filed an appeal against Heard, who was awarded $2 million in their headline-grabbing lawsuit over the summer.
While Johnny Depp was awarded over $10 million after Amber Heard defamed him, Heard herself was awarded $2 million after it was found that Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, also defamed the actress. However, Depp does not let the 2 million dollars end up in Davey Jones’s Locker. According to Johnny Depp’s legal team, “The Supreme Court was confronted with a number of new and complex questions of law and fact, and although the trial court decided the vast majority of these questions sensibly and correctly, a few rulings were erroneous.” They supported the claim saying, “Ms. Heard presented no evidence at trial that Mr. Depp was personally involved in directing or making any of the three Waldman statements.”
The libel case, which ended in Junefound out that Amber Heard had to pay “$10.35 million in damages to Depp after it was determined she defamed the actor when she wrote a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post alluding to past allegations of domestic violence.” It also awarded Heard the aforementioned $2 million.
While Johnny Depp is a multi-millionaire, $2 million is $2 million. According to reportsDepp can use more than that one month. The partial breakdown goes like this: $300,000 on personal staff, $200,000 on a private jet, $150,000 on security and $30,000 on wine – wow, that is a lot by Franzia!
