After the trial against her ex-husband Jonny Depp, Amber Heard’s financial situation is not good at all. Apparently, the actress has officially declared bankruptcy, since she cannot pay the fine imposed by the jury.
Let us remember that the jury’s decision came after weeks in which both actors presented messages, photographs, videos and witnesses that confirmed and/or denied each of their accusations.
At the end of the trial, the jury ruled that Heard should pay Depp $10 million in damages. In turn, the actor would have to pay two million dollars as compensation to his ex.
After the sentence, Heard’s legal team explained to the judge that the actress did not have enough money to pay off the debt. Since then, the actress has been in a legal process to settle her account in a simpler way.
Heard would have legally declared bankruptcy on July 21, for which he would have filed an appeal with the state of Virginia so that his sentence was less.
We believe the court made errors that prevented a fair and First Amendment verdict. Therefore, we are appealing the verdict.

After Heard’s appeal, Depp’s lawyers filed a legal appeal with the Virginia Court, requesting that the original jury’s decision be taken into account and making it clear that if the actress continues a legal fight, the actor will do the same. .
The verdict speaks for itself and Mr Depp believes this is a time for both parties to move on with their lives and get back on their feet. But if Ms Heard is determined to pursue litigation by appealing the verdict, Mr Depp will file a concurrent appeal to ensure the Court of Appeal considers the full record and all relevant legal issues.
