“We are pleased to officially close this painful chapter for Depp. “The ‘truth’ that Depp sought to convey has been clarified through his legal process.”
Reuters could not immediately reach Heard or a representative for comment on the decision to compromise, which Heard announced on Instagram.
When Johnny Depp’s defamation case started in the Fairfax County Court of Virginia in the United States, many aspects of the couple’s marriage were revealed, which sparked heated discussions among fans around the world.
Millions of people have got the opportunity to watch the trial of this case directly through the live stream. In the end, the jury decided that Heard had made allegations about her marriage to Depp that were ‘false’ and intended to ‘discredit’ her ex-husband.
Jurors also said the actress was also defamed when Depp’s lawyer told the Daily Mail in 2020 that Heard’s allegations were ‘false’.
“The jury gave me my life back,” Depp said in a statement after the verdict. I am truly overwhelmed.” He added in Latin, “Truth never perishes.”
