GoFundMe Is Banning Fake Campaigns For Amber Heard’s Lawsuit Payment To Johnny Depp
One campaign that falsely claimed to know Heard’s legal team was seeking to raise $1 million before being removed by GoFundMe.
Some fake GoFundMe campaigns claiming to help Amber Heard pay Johnny Depp $10.35 million
after he won his defamation lawsuit have sprung up in the wake of Heard’s attorney saying her client could not afford to pay him.
The contentious court battle over Heard’s Washington Post op-ed about experiencing
domestic abuse came to an end Wednesday with Depp emerging victorious.
Heard was ordered to pay her ex-husband $15 million in damages,
although state rules limited it to $10.35 million.
Depp was ordered to pay Heard $2 million for her claim of defamation against his lawyer.
Heard's lawyer, Elaine Bredehoft, told the Today show on Thursday that she will appeal the verdict as Heard can “absolutely not” pay the damages.
