Johnny Depp posted a video message to fans pledging to “move on” after winning the high-profile defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Depp had sued Heard for $50 million for writing an op-ed for the Washington Post in 2018 in which he allegedly insinuated that he mistreated her. She filed a counterclaim for $100 million.
Last week, the jury found that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts. He was awarded $10 million in compensatory charges related to lost career opportunities and $350,000 in punitive damages. Heard was awarded US$2 million in damages for one of her three counterclaims, leaving her with US$8.35 million in debt to pay Depp.
On Tuesday, June 7, Depp shared a video compilation of footage from his recent UK concerts with Jeff Beck.
In the caption, she wrote: “To all my most precious, loyal and unwavering fans. We have been everywhere together, we have seen everything together.”
“We have walked the same path together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move on together.”
Depp continued: “You are, as always, my employers and once again I have no way of saying thank you, other than thank you. So thanks. My love and respect, JD.”
