There have been messy celebrity divorces, but the notorious split between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is one of the messiest. The two actors have been fighting in court for years, and the verdicts of their defamation claims haven’t changed anything. After the dust settled, Aquaman actress, Heard, was found liable on three counts and was ordered to pay her ex over $10 million in damages. Could Heard simply declare bankruptcy to avoid paying Depp this amount?
Her lawyer says she can’t pay her $10 million debt. But bankruptcy won’t help her because the law says she has to pay it.
Amber Heard is in a lot of trouble. Even though she declared bankruptcy, she still has to pay Johnny Depp for the defamation case. Her legal team is appealing the verdict, but this will probably take a long time. The legal battle isn’t going to end anytime soon.
This report is about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s appeals about their defamation case. Heard’s lawyers are trying to get the verdict thrown out. Depp just filed his own appeal. He was the victor in court, but his team said this:
“The verdict speaks for itself, and Mr. Depp believes that this a time for both parties to move on with their lives and heal. But if Ms. Heard is determined to pursue further litigation by appealing the verdict, Mr. Depp is filing a concurrent appeal to ensure that the full record and all legal issues are considered by the Court of Appeal.”
Johnny Depp was ordered to pay Amber Heard $2 million. Depp’s lawyers are trying to get that thrown out, which would mean Heard would have to pay more money.
If Johnny Depp sues Amber Heard for $10 million, she could lose a lot of money. This includes any property she owns and future wages. She might also have to pay him back for any money he has lost because of her. Since she has not been working a lot lately, this could be a huge burden for her to carry.
Johnny Depp is getting ready to film his first movie since the trial. He is also going on tour as a musician. As for Amber Heard, she will appear in Aquaman 2. But her role in the movie may be smaller than people thought because of the defamation trial. In the meantime, you can check out the 2022 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
