Hollywood has been in chaos since May came to an end and June began; one of the reasons is the final verdict in the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: he must pay 2 million dollars and she 10 million dollars since the ruling was more in favor of the protagonist of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean.’ The truth is that everything would indicate that the actress does not have the money to pay the fine.
After the ruling on the case was revealed, the jury announced that Amber Heard must pay Johnny Depp $10 million in compensatory damages.
In addition, it was also revealed that she would have to pay another 5 million dollars in punitive damages, a figure that was later reduced to only 350 thousand dollars.
As soon as the sentence was handed down, the judge asked if the ‘Aquaman actress had the chance to pay for all this, and her lawyers answered with a resounding no.
The legal representatives of the interpreter of Mera in the Extended Universe of DC Comics assured them that she did not have that money on hand without leaving more questions on the subject.
Absolutely Not [he has the money],” Elaine Bredehoft said.

For her part, Amber Heard did not comment on it, although it is a fact that it could have financial complications in the future because it is speculated that his screen time in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom was cut to just 10 minutes and that there. Are doubts that it will be part of a third tape about the King of the Oceans of the DC world:
Amber Heard would seek to appeal against the verdict in favor of Johnny
After the ruling that had been given in the defamation trial that the actors had starred in since last April was made known, Amber Heard’s lawyers expressed their disagreement and that of the actress: they considered that the jury was influenced by what media coverage of the case and that finally, his response was completely different from what it would have been without the attack on his client from social networks.
Given the discontent with the verdict in favor of Johnny Depp, even though he will also have to pay 2 million for the ruling, he also mentioned that he had partially defamed the actress; Heard’s lawyers made it known that she would try to appeal soon and that they would support her.
He has excellent reasons to [appeal the verdict),” Bredehoft said.
