The jury found Johnny Depp was defamed by Amber Heard when she described herself in an op-ed as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”
Depp won more than $10 million in damages on Wednesday, achieving a near-total victory in a defamation suit against Heard to cap a six-week trial featuring graphic testimony about the stars’ soured relationship.
A seven-person jury in Virginia also ruled for Heard on one counterclaim against Depp. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” film star depicted the decision as a vindication, and his former wife said it was “a disappointment.”
