Amber Heard can’t afford to pay Johnny Depp $10.4m, as she plans her appeal



Just when you thought the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard saga had been laid to rest, Heard has decided to appeal the decision

Millions waited with bated breath as the jury ruled in Depp’s favour awarding him $15 million in damages.

Now, Heard is “absolutely” appealing the decision.

Her lawyers say she has “excellent ground” to do so.

Heard’s main attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, says the “pro-Depp” social media wrath influenced the jury’s decision.

She also claims the TV broadcast of the trial “made it a zoo”.

“So not only did we have a group of Depp fans that were there every day — 100 were allowed in, they lined up at 1 o’clock in the morning for their wristbands to be in that courtroom — but we had everything on camera, and we had tremendous social media that was very, very, very much against Amber.”

Although the jury was told repeatedly not to read anything about the case, they have weekends, they have families, they have social media. How could they not have been influenced?”

Heard’s lawyers also claim important evidence including medical records was suppressed by Depp’s team.

They claim Heard has been wrongly done by and will now plan the appeal process.

In the verdict from Virginia, the jury found that Depp also defamed Heard when his previous lawyers labeled Heard’s claims a hoax, with the jury awarding her $2 million.

This means that Heard still owes Depp a sum of $10.4 million.

When asked about whether Heard can pay the millions in damages she now owes Depp, Bredehoft responded saying “absolutely not.”

Back in 2020, Depp previously lost a similar trial against Heard in the UK, where he was accused of assaulting Heard.

Deepfakes are taking over Hollywood



Deepfakes are the online phenomenon changing the way in which we consume and trust social media

Have you ever scrolled through social media and found a celebrity selling something a bit left of centre?

Chances are you have fallen victim to a deepfake.

These images and videos are a type of artificial intelligence, which promises to create doctored videos, which are almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing.

They have typically been used in pornographic clips and for celebrity endorsements.

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase



Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.

He says talks are being held in the film industry about how to protect actors from the effects of the technology.

Hanks told the host: “I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.”

The award-winning actor acknowledged that tech developments could lead to an AI-generated version of himself appearing in films he may not not normally choose.
