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.
