Johnny Depp may let Amber Heard escape $8m damages if she drops appeal, lawyers suggest

Johnny Depp emerged victorious in his defamation case against ex-wife

Amber Heard following three days of deliberations by the jury, which also handed Heard a partial win in her countersuit.

The jury determined Heard defamed Depp on all three counts and

awarded him $10m in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive

damages. Heard was awarded $2m compensatory damages.

The “humbled” actor thanked the jury for giving him his life back.

He is currently playing gigs on a UK tour with Jeff Beck.

His lawyers gave their first interviews on Wednesday in which when asked

about the possibility of dropping damages, they said the case was never about money.
