Johnny Depp didn't beat Amber Heard! The actor won a lawsuit against his ex-wife

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp won a libel suit against Amber Heard, whom he was married to from 2015 to 2017. The actress will pay $ 15 million in moral compensation for accusing him of domestic violence without evidence. The decision was announced live, which was watched by 3.1 million people.

Depp, in turn, must pay his ex-wife $ 2 million, as his lawyer’s phrase that Heard “uses false accusations of sexual violence like a shield” was recognized as slander. That is, Heard could have been sexually abused, which she talked about, but not from Depp. The actor claimed that it was a personal opinion of a lawyer, published in the media.

– The disappointment that I feel today is beyond words. It breaks my heart that the mountains of evidence are still not enough to counter the disproportionate power and influence of my ex-husband. I am even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women, – Amber Heard wrote after the court decision on Instagram.

– Six years ago, my life changed forever, the lives of my children, the lives of the people closest to me, as well as the lives of people who supported and believed in me for many, many years. From the very beginning, the purpose of this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. To tell the truth was something I owed to my children and to all those who remained steadfast in their support for me. I feel at peace knowing that I have finally achieved it. The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun,” Depp wrote on Instagram.

Depp sued his ex-wife for $50 million for defamation in a 2018 Washington Post article. Heard wrote that she was a victim of domestic violence. At the same time, Depp's name was not called, but, as it were, read between the lines. Hurd filed a counterclaim for $100 million.

The trial went on for six weeks live. Here's what came out of it:

  • According to Depp, Hurd cheated on him with actor James Franco, who lived next door. Depp's lawyer Camilla Vasquez showed a video of Hurd and Franco taking the elevator to the penthouse when Depp was not at home. The couple stood next to each other, and Franco rested his head on Heard's shoulder.
  • Heard stated that Depp once pushed his ex-girlfriend Kate Moss, whom he dated from 1994 to 1998, down the stairs. The model had to appear in court to refute this.
  • Heard spoke about several cases of violence by her ex-husband. During a visit to Russia, he hit her in the face, “nearly breaking her nose,” and once slapped her and grabbed her by the neck in a train carriage. Depp denied everything.
  • Depp said that it was the former who often hit him in the face, leaving bruises. Heard denied everything.
