Actor also convicted: Amber Heard guilty of defamation of Johnny Depp

The long-awaited verdict in the Johnny Depp trial has been reached. His ex-wife Amber Heard pleaded guilty to defamation, jury rules. But the US actor also has to pay damages.

A US jury has found actress Amber Heard guilty of defamation of her ex-husband Johnny Depp. The jury in Fairfax, Virginia, found that Heard defamed the Hollywood star by accusing him of domestic violence. You must therefore pay him $ 15 million (14 million euros) in damages. However, the seven-member jury also agreed with Heard on a number of points. Depp has to pay his ex-wife two million dollars.

In the process, the ex-husbands had made serious allegations against each other for six weeks - which were broadcast all over the world via cameras via live stream. The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star accused Heard of making false statements in a 2018 op-ed by the Washington Post about domestic violence. This damaged his reputation. Because of defamation, he demanded 50 million dollars (a good 46 million euros) in damages. In her counterclaim, Heard insisted on $100 million.

The bitter War of the Roses has been raging for years. In 2016, Heard filed for divorce after just 15 months of marriage. About two years ago, Depp suffered a defeat in London with a lawsuit against the tabloid "Sun". It was about an article alleging that Depp physically abused Heard as a wife beater. After a trial with fierce allegations, the High Court ultimately dismissed the lawsuit.
