Amber Heard, an American actress, is commenting on Johnny Depp’s victory in his defamation suit against her on Wednesday, June 1.

Amber Heard, 36, claims Depp sexually and physically abused her. Nevertheless, Depp persistently disputed the allegations and sued her for defamation.

After 13 hours of deliberation, a seven-member panel in Fairfax agreed to pay the Pirates of the Caribbean actor $15 million in damages. The judge, however, limited the punitive damages he might obtain from $5 million to $350,000 due to the Virginia statutory cap on punitive damages in such circumstances. READ MORE

Now, Amber Heard owes Johnny Depp $8,350,000.

As Depp was touring the United Kingdom with guitar icon Jeff Beck on Wednesday, he was absent from court for the verdict.

Aquaman actress Amber Heard expressed her disappointment and sadness on Instagram, calling the ruling a’setback for women’

She drafted;

The level of dissatisfaction I feel today is indescribable. “I’m heartbroken that the pile of evidence was insufficient to combat my ex-enormous husband’s influence, power, and persuasion,”

I’m even more dismayed by what this judgement implies for other women. It is a failure. It turns back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up may be publicly humiliated and shamed. This undermines the notion that violence against women should be treated seriously,” she concluded.

“I believe Johnny’s counsel were able to convince the jury to disregard the crucial issue of Freedom of Speech and to disregard information that was so overwhelming that we won the case in the United Kingdom. I regret having lost this case. “However, I am sadder even since I seem to have lost a right I believed I had as an American – the right to speak freely and honestly,”

Johnny filed a $50 million lawsuit against Amber for a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she portrayed herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Following their 2016 separation, Amber alleged that Johnny had been physically abusive during their marriage. She countersued Johnny for $100 million during a six-week trial.
