It’s been just over a week since a jury overwhelmingly ruled in favor of Johnny Depp in his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The actress was hit with a judgment of more than $8 million, prompting her lawyer to state very publicly that she could not afford to pay and that an appeal would be imminent. His financial situation was, of course, a hot topic of unsubstantiated speculation after those comments, and now the gossip has grown even louder after Heard was spotted stepping off a private plane.
According to TMZ, the Aquaman The star flew privately to New Jersey to attend meetings in New York and then flew back to DC, as she was staying nearby in Virginia. Her sister is said to have accompanied her on the trip, alongside at least two other people, although it is not clear what the meetings in question were about.
Of course, Amber Heard’s use of the private plane has drawn its fair share of negative headlines and negative comments on Twitter. Saying you can’t afford to pay a legal judgment and then steal privately, a luxury most people could never afford, isn’t exactly the best view, but in his defense the situation is a little more complicated than that. There was so much focus on the trial and so many people developed very aggressive opinions on the matter that it doesn’t really seem advisable to buy a standard plane ticket. Even with a mask on, she’s unlikely to be able to blend into an airport for hours.
Also, we don’t know exactly what the alleged meetings in New York were about. It’s not uncommon for studios to send private jets for big celebrities, and she’s had her share of major roles. She could easily have taken a plane that a company had sent her. Also, while she doesn’t seem to have an $8 million disposable income, she has a lot of very famous and very wealthy associates who have a lot of money.
Regardless of who paid for the private plane, Amber Heard has a financial situation she will need to resolve. She was awarded $2 million by the jury following a statement made by Depp’s former lawyer, but that amount was completely swallowed up by the $15 million awarded to her. That number was whittled down to $10.35 million based on caps for certain types of damages, bringing his total bill to $8.35 million. Depp’s lawyers said the case was never about money for him. As such, it’s possible that the two sides will come to some sort of arrangement where they settle for less money or no money if she agrees not to appeal the verdict.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were married from 2015 to 2017. Their relationship was often tumultuous and their breakup was a lengthy legal process. They have been in and out of various courts for years, although this most recent lawsuit, in which they sued and countersued for defamation, has attracted by far the most attention since cameras were allowed. inside the courtroom.
Both parties spoke up and admitted and/or accused each other of many things, including drug abuse and use, although it was the lighter topics that seemed to appeal the most. watch out, like who pooped in the bed. Several witnesses have also gone viral for things that happened during their testimony, including farting, dropping a sick burn, and whatever else this guy did with his mouth.
There is no time frame as to when we might be notified of the appeal process and/or a settlement, but whenever progress occurs, we will follow up.
