Heard Gives First Interview Addressing Defamation Verdict

Heard Gives First Interview Addressing Defamation Verdict

(BrightPress.org) – During the month of May, Johnny Depp’s $50-million lawsuit against his former wife Amber Heard garnered the attention of the media and fans. On Wednesday, June 1, a jury awarded Depp $15 million in damages over Heard’s allegations that Depp assaulted her. Because of Virginia law, Heard will pay $10.35 million instead of the entire $15 million. On Monday, June 13, NBC began airing clips of an interview with Heard ahead of the airing of the full interview on Friday.

During the interview with Savannah Guthrie asked the “Aquaman” actress how she felt social media impacted the trial. Heard said she understood people’s thoughts but said the general consensus wasn’t a fair representation of reality. The actress has described the jury’s decision as a setback for women. Her legal team recently stated that she plans to appeal the verdict.

In the meantime, Depp’s legal woes aren’t over yet. He’s due back in court in July over allegations he punched film location manager Gregory Brooks in the ribcage several times on the set of a movie in 2018. Brooks alleges that in addition to physical pain, the actor caused him emotional distress through verbal attacks

What do you think? Did Heard get a fair trial?
