Actor Johnny Depp has won the $15 million defamation case against Amber Heard.
The jury recently announced the breaking verdict, leaving the world cheering and relieved to see justice finally be served.
While the actor was not spotted in attendance, Amber Heard was present physically to hear the jury rule in favor of her ex-husband.
The celeb was given an award of $15 million in both compensatory as well as punitive damages. And that means Heard would only get $2 million for the compensatory charges and zero for the punitive damages.
Johnny Depp was in the United Kingdom and he was not able to attend in person due to his previous work commitments. But it is believed he joined virtually and must be in high spirits after the startling and dramatic six-week-long trial comes to a close.
Amber Heard was reportedly pictured walking into the courtroom with her head down and critics it was almost as if she knew the verdict would not be ruled in her favor after looking at her expressionless face and body language.
The dramatic courtroom moment was seen by plenty of people across the world, with many celebrating as if one of their own had won. And as you can imagine, social media is abuzz with justice for Johnny Depp trending across all social networks.
During the world’s most explosive trial, Johnny Depp was able to gather just the right amount of evidence and witnesses to testify and with the perfect team of lawyers, the celeb was able to reign supreme and the verdict was the true icing on the cake for the star.
The jury witnessed dozens of text messages as well as videos and medical records that featured evidence that clearly showed how the star was abused and in fact a victim that remained silent for years. But now, the verdict has given back his life, his career, and his name.
