It seems like the entire world has been gripped with the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial – and it finally came to a conclusion a few hours ago.
- The jury has awarded Depp $10m (£8m) in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive damages
- The jury found that Heard’s statements about her marriage were “false” and she acted with “actual malice”
- But jurors also found that Depp defamed Heard – through his attorney – and awarded her $2m
This trial seems to have been a circus from start to finish and Johnny Depp has cleared his name, but apart from that there are very limited winners in this matter.
It made good TV for some!
