Earlier this year, Johnny and Amber Heard were spotted in a US court for a defamation trial, where the former was given $10.35 million in damages and Amber got $2 million.
The US lawsuit took place during April and May, and the verdict was declared by the panel in June. The much-talked lawsuit was based on the allegation that Amber had defamed Johnny by referring to herself as a ‘public figure representing domestic abuse’ in a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post. After that, Johnny appealed against Amber’s $2 million defamation trial payout, revealing few rulings of the court ‘were erroneous’.
