Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, the lives of those closest to me and also the lives of the people who have supported me and believed in me for many years changed forever.

In a nanosecond I had already circled the world twice and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career. Six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I feel truly humbled. From the beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. Telling the truth was something I owed to my children and to all those who have stood by me. I feel at peace knowing that I have finally made it.

I want to acknowledge the noble work of the judge, jurors, court staff, and bailiffs who sacrificed their time to get to this point, as well as the extraordinary work of my team of attorneys who helped me share the truth. The best is yet to come. Finally, a new chapter has begun. ‘Veritas numquam perit’.

Moments after the sentence was announced, Amber Heard took to Instagram and Twitter to share her “disappointment” with the verdict and the effect it could have on victims of abuse:

The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I am heartbroken that the mountain of evidence was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power and influence of my ex-husband. I am even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It represents a setback. It pushes back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously.

the star of Aquaman He added that Johnny Depp’s lawyers had gotten jurors to “override” free speech:

Amber Heard

I think Johnny’s lawyers managed to get the jury to miss the key issue of free speech and ignore the very compelling evidence that we won in the UK. I’m sad because I lost this case. But I am even sadder because I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American: to speak freely and openly.
