Though Johnny Depp’s multimillion-dollar defamation case against Amber Heard didn’t go her way, she continues to speak out. In an interview with Dateline, Heard said she didn’t want revenge, but wanted people to see her as a “human” just trying to tell her story. She said (via the LA Times), “I took for granted what I felt was my right to speak out, not only about what I went through but what I knew. Look what happened to me when I got in touch. Would you?”
Despite what has been said, Heard still loves her ex-husband. “I tried my best to make a deeply broken relationship work. And I couldn’t. I have no bad feelings or ill will toward him at all,” she also told Today. “I know that could be hard to understand, or it could be really easy to understand. If you’ve ever loved someone, it should be easy.” And while Heard also added that she’s not trying to be vindictive or calculating toward her ex, her new request for a parole is sure to raise a lot of eyebrows.
Amber Heard is asking a judge to rule
Amber Heard wants a rerun? TMZ reports that the Aquaman star is asking the judge in Johnny Depp’s defamation case against her to start it all over due to a lack of solid evidence that has been presented. As many fans may recall, Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Heard, meanwhile, received only $2 million in damages. However, it seems Heard’s team isn’t entirely convinced she should have lost. Her side insists there was a “fake juror” in the courtroom. Apparently a mysterious juror was never properly screened as there seems to be discretion at his age. According to TMZ, one document stated the juror was born in 1945, while another says 1970.
While the judge is yet to make a decision on that motion in this case, it has been pointed out that Depp and Heard’s televised case dominated the internet. That’s because more than 83.9 million hours of the case were watched online, and at one point 3.5 million people were watching the case, which Newsweek said broke a YouTube viewership record. In addition, the Law & Crime Network added an additional 2.3 million new subscribers during the process. In other words, this case could actually inspire a sequel that everyone would probably tune into.
