Earlier this week, it was also revealed that Depp’s assistant admitted that the Hollywood star allegedly “kicked” Amber Heard in the head in text messages that were excluded from the ex-partner’s defamation trial.
The US libel trial began on April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, and stemmed from a complaint Depp filed in March 2019 against his ex-wife.
Depp alleged that Heard had defamed him in an opinion piece published in Washington Post, in which she described herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Heard filed a countersuit in November 2020, requesting that she be granted immunity against Depp’s claims.
On June 1, a jury overwhelmingly found in Depp’s favor that Heard had defamed Depp in three statements. Jurors also found that an attorney for Depp defamed Heard in one of the three statements highlighted in his countersuit. Depp received $10.35 million in damages, while Heard received $2 million.
Each separately appealed the jury’s verdict against them.
