About our Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard news

Latest news on the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard dispute, which included a civil defamation trial between the two American actors in Fairfax County, Virginia, in 2022.

Plaintiff Depp alleged three counts of defamation against defendant and his former wife Amber Heard, claiming $50 million in damages; Heard filed a counterclaim against Depp, claiming damages of $100 million.

The jury ruled that references Heard made to "sexual violence" and "domestic abuse" in a Washington Post op-ed were false and defamed Depp with actual malice, awarding him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages from Heard, although the court reduced the punitive damages to $350,000 due to a limit imposed by Virginia state law. The jury also ruled that Depp's former lawyer, Adam Waldman, had defamed Heard by falsely alleging that she and her friends "roughed up" Depp's penthouse as part of a "hoax" against Depp. The jury awarded Heard $2 million in compensatory damages and zero in punitive damages from Depp. Separately, the jury ruled that Waldman's other allegations of Heard's "sexual violence hoax" and "abuse hoax" against Depp had not been proven to be defamatory.
