Def@mation: Court orders actor Johnny Depp’s ex-wife to pay him $15million

American actor Johnny Depp has won a defam@tion lawsuit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. A jury ruled in his favor on Wednesday, June 1, bring to an end the high-profile def@mation trial between the ex-couple.

Recall that Depp sued Heard for defam@tion over a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic ab#se.”

Though Depp was not named in the article, he claims it cost him lucrative acting roles. Heard countersued her ex-husband for defam@tion over statements Depp’s attorney made about her ab#se claims.

Weighing the claims, a jury found that both of the exes defamed each other and awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory dam@ges and $5 million in punitive dam@ges. While Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory dam@ges and no punitive dam@ges.
