The past few months must have been anything but easy for the actor. Johnny and his ex-wife Amber Heard delivered a mud fight of the finest in court. The 36-year-old accused the Hollywood star of domestic violence, which is now determined wrongfully.
After six weeks, the verdict was finally handed down on June 1, and Johnny Depp was cleared. Amber was the one who was found guilty and had to pay a whopping $15 million in compensation to her ex-husband. According to the jury, Amber was lying on most counts.
However, Amber’s counterclaim was not wholly unjustified. So Johnny Depp also has to pay two million dollars to his ex.
Both parties spoke out on social media shortly after the verdict was announced. Amber showed herself dejected:
“My disappointment cannot be put into words. My heart is broken […]. But I am mostly sad because it looks like I lost my right to speak freely as an American.”
Johnny, however, said:
“I have finally found my peace. […]. Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, those closest to me, and the lives of the people who have supported and believed in me for many years changed forever.”
So that case is closed – at least for now. Amber can still appeal, and according to reports, she is doing her best to take Depp to the courthouse again.
Who is Johnny Depp dating now?
Actor Johnny Depp’s relationship status is currently uncertain. Currently, the actor is in the middle of a defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, whom he has already been divorced from since 2017.
As reported by Today, the pair met in 2012 and married in 2015 on Depp’s private island in the Bahamas. Heard already filed for divorce in 2016. The reasons for this were said to be domestic violence and alcohol and drug abuse, reported People Magazine, which had gained insight into court documents in the case of Depp against Heard.
Also, The Mirror reported on the still ongoing defamation case between the two actors. In one video excerpt shown by the Mirror, Depp’s security chief testifies that Johnny Depp himself was a victim of domestic violence when Heard threw a can at him.
Also, she is said to have arguably become violent towards him and admitted to punching him in the face. It remains to be seen when a settlement will finally be reached between the two parties.
