Amber Heard Unable To Pay Johnny Depp The $10.4 Million

Losing Defamation Lawsuit Left Amber Broke

This follows Depp's victory in his defamation lawsuit against her, which resulted in millions of dollars in damages.

Amber Heard’s lawyer said on Friday that she is unable to pay her ex-husband Johnny Depp more than $10 million in damages after she lost the defamation lawsuit he filed against her.

As we previously reported, a Virginia jury concluded on Wednesday that Depp had won his defamation lawsuit against the actress, awarding $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.

“Well, you know, really what happened here is it’s a tale of two trials. Johnny Depp brought a suit in the UK for the same case,” Elaine Bredehoft, Heard’s lawyer said in an interview with NBC’s TODAY show.

“The burden of proof was easier for him there, the Sun had to actually prove that it was true. And the court found there — and we weren’t allowed to tell the jury this — but the court found that Mr. Depp had committed at least 12 acts of domestic violence, including sexual violence against Amber.”

“So what did Depp’s team learn from this? Demonize Amber and suppress the evidence. We had an enormous amount of evidence that was suppressed in this case that was in the UK case. In the UK case when it came in, Amber won and Mr. Depp lost,” she continued.

She then responded affirmatively when asked if her client will be able to pay the substantial sum of money awarded to him by a Virginia jury: “Oh no, absolutely not.”

Furthermore, when asked if the activist would appeal, Bredehoft responded, “Oh, absolutely [she will appeal], and she has some excellent grounds for it.”

The “Aquaman” star was expected to accompany her attorney on the morning program, but she backed out following her courtroom defeat, according to sources close to Heard obtained by The New York Post.

Reactions to Amber Heard Unable To Pay Johnny Depp The $10.4 Million

Amber heard dumb and broke, like my ex

@Qowling

Amber Heard didn’t lose because the justice system failed her. Amber Heard lost because she is the abuser. There is a mountain of evidence against her. And this verdict isn’t a setback for women. It is a wakeup call to stop believing someone based on their gender only. It is a 1/

@mimasdiaries

Idk who needs to hear this but Amber Heard hasn't done a single thing to help any woman besides herself. Johnny Depp says his win is for both male and female victims. Key word: victims.

@topazsunsett

Amber Heard plans to appeal, but she should honestly just let it go. If she wants to salvage her name at all, going through another media circus won't help.

@YellowFlashGuy

Amber Heard should not be allowed to appeal at all. What is she going to do? Fabricate more evidence? Lie a little more under oath? Someone should sue her for perjury and for submitting fake evidence to the court.

@PrinConsuella_

I am a woman, i am a survivor and i believe amber heard used us for her own gain. The media, @MeTooMVMT @womensaid and all the ppl who SHOULD be standing up for us, AREN’T. They are siding with the woman who mocked us, and now they are gaslighting us. None of them care about us

@CoffeePowerrr

Now that Amber Heard is broke. I can probably cast her in a short film for $35/day and food 😭😭😭

@PatekWaterBndr

Amber Heard should think about begging Elon Musk to take her back cuz Johnny is waiting for his 15 millions and we all know that she's a broke ass liar #JusticeForJohhnyDepp

@darknlovelie198

Amber Heard better find some money trees considering how much financial debt she’s about to be in. Ms. Girl is about to be broke as a joke. 🤣
