On June 1, judges delivered a verdict in the libel case involving former Hollywood couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The jury says that Amber tried to defame her ex-husband Johnny Depp in a six-week trial. The jury also found in Heard’s favor on some of the charges against Depp.
Hurd will have to pay a large amount: According to the jury’s decision, Heard will pay Depp $5 million in damages and Heard will also receive $2 million in damages. Johnny Depp sued Heard for $50 million, saying Heard tried to defame him. While Heard contradicted Depp claiming to be a victim of domestic violence, demanding 100 million dollars.
The former couple had made serious accusations against each other during this trial. For the first time in 2017, Heard had said in a newspaper interview that she had been a victim of domestic violence. Johnny had filed a libel case against her regarding this matter.
They made serious accusations against each other: During the trial, Heard made accusations against Johnny in front of the jury. She said that Johnny has hit him multiple times under the influence of alcohol. Heard claimed that on their honeymoon, Johnny slammed her against the wall and put a shirt around her neck. Amber Heard said that Johnny is always drunk and once put a bottle of vodka in Heard’s private parts.
Johnny said about having a threesome with Elon Musk: Denying Heard’s accusations, Johnny accused her of having an extramarital affair. Johnny had said that while she was married, Amber Heard was in a relationship with Tesla owner Elon Musk. The two also had threesomes with another girl.
Elon Musk breaks the silence: Elon Musk did not react to this couple’s fight. But now that their case was closing, Elon Musk has broken his silence. Telsa’s owner said in a tweet: “Hope they both keep going. Both are great in their own right.”
