After a sensational seven-week trial that was defined by disturbing allegations of abuse hurled by both sides, a jury awarded Johnny Depp $15 million on Friday to win his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. The case had been brought against Amber Heard by Johnny Depp.
Besides awarding Depp $15 million, the seven-person panel, which was made up of two women and five men, came to the conclusion that Depp had slandered Heard through the representation of his attorney. They decided to compensate her with $2 million in damages overall. The $2 Million however is just a drop in the bucket compared to Depp’s $15 million win.

Depp who was noticeably absent at the jury’s verdict posted a note on Facebook which stated:
“Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed.”
“False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. It had already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career.”
“And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled.”
“My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought.”
Depp would go on to express that his entire motive to pursue the case was to reveal the truth regardless of what the end result would be. The star would go on to thank his dedicated fans who were present outside of the Fairfax County Court and from all around the world.
The Pirate of the Caribbean star would give thanks to the judge, jurors, and his legal team for giving him his time.
To conclude his message Depp ended by saying the Latin phrase “Veritas numquam perit” which means truth never perishes. The superstar would also write that the best is yet to come which has many fans eager to find out what movie project the 58-year-old actor will be part of next.
