Where is Amber Heard Now After the Johnny Depp Trial?

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp: What Happened Between Them?
The future Aquaman star and the Pirates of the Caribbean actor started d@ting in 2011 after meeting on the set of their film The Rum Diary. They finally married in February 2015, nearly four years after d@ting. Their marriage didn’t endure, though; in May of 2016, Amber filed for divorce from Johnny. Their divorce was completed in January 2017.
Despite their divorce, the Alice in Wonderland star filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife in 2019 after she wrote an essay for The Washington Post in 2018 claiming to be a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Her report did not directly name Depp; however, his legal team argued that the portrayal of Depp as abusive in the op-ed slandered his name in the entertainment industry.

Heard sued her ex-husband again, this time for $100 million.
The trial began on May 4, 2022, and ended less than a month later. The month-long trial became one of the most famous cases in the entertainment world, as the two actors made bombshell charges about each other while testifying separately on the stand.
The jury returned their decision on June 1, 2022, after a 13-hour deliberation, giving the What’s Eating Gilbert Grape star $15 million in damages and the Zombieland actress $2 million.
One month after the trial, Heard’s defense requested a mistrial, arguing that one of the jurors was never summoned to serve on the panel. Nonetheless, on July 13, 2022, Judge Penney Azcarate refused the motion.
