Lawyer: Amber Heard “Absolutely Not” Able To Pay $10 Million In Damages


Just after US jury sided with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” hero in a bitter defamation trial, actress Amber Heard‘s lawyer on 2nd June said that she is unable to pay more than $10 million in damages to her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The high-profile televised court battle came to an end on 1st June, when a seven-member jury convicted that Depp as well as Heard had defamed each other, but sided with Depp far more heavily.

After a six-week trial involving allegations and counterclaims of domestic abuse, the jury awarded him $10.35 million in damages, compared to $2 million for Heard.

“Oh no, absolutely not,” her attorney Elaine Bredehoft said on NBC’s TODAY show when asked if Heard would be able to pay up.

She went on to say that the “Aquaman” star intends to appeal the decision and that she “has some extremely good grounds for doing so.”

Depp, who lost a libel case in London in 2020 against the British tabloid The Sun for naming him a “wife-beater,” lauded the split ruling in the case as a victory, while Heard said she was “heartbroken.”

Depp sued Heard in December 2018 after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which she defined herself as a “public figure trying to represent domestic abuse.”
