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

Published

on

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.

Cameras catch Ben Affleck ‘miserable’ at Grammys

Published

on

The Grammy Awards made history but through it all, one actor stole the show for looking miserable

 
CBS’ cameras repeatedly caught Affleck looking bored sitting next to wife Jennifer Lopez during the show.

Many Grammy watchers noted how Affleck seemingly wanted to be anywhere but at the event, even whilst watching Stevie Wonder crush “Higher Ground”.

Online people loved it – one user writing ‘Ben Affleck is every husband dragged to a work thing by his wife’.

And at some point, after more than three hours of jokes, acceptance speeches and live performances, Ben Affleck got to go home.

The tense exchange begins with Ben whispering into J.Lo’s ear, only for her to jerk away and seemingly snap at him in response.

PR stunt or genuine married couple life? Either way, the producers got a very nice close up.
