A verdict has finally been reached in the $100 million bombshell defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
According to local media reports, the seven-person jury has finally made up their minds on the third day of deliberations in Fairfax, Virginia. The news comes during the morning hours of Wednesday after almost 13 hours of weighing the case.
This verdict is claimed to be read out loud at about 3 pm in the afternoon but in what is being called a major surprise, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor will not be attendance, as mentioned by one close source to Johnny Depp.
Depp will not be available because of his previous work commitments and those were reportedly made right before the trial had taken place. Therefore, to many people’s dismay, he will not be present physically for the verdict at 3 pm.
And will instead be watching from the United Kingdom as mentioned by a close source.
Amber Heard, on the other hand, is scheduled to be inside the courtroom when the verdict is revealed, the source went on to add.
For now, we are not aware of which way the case may end up going. But by the looks of it, many on the internet are leaning towards Team Johnny Depp, based on everything they’ve seen so far in the case on television.
Social media is also buzzing with all sorts of comments as people voice their opinions in regards to the starting ordeal as many expected the verdict to come by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, the jurors were handed over a form yesterday that considered the headlines and passaged were related to Johnny Depp or not and whether or not they were false. In that case, they were asked to comment on whether Amber Heard wished to start a smear campaign against her husband or not.
