Johnny Depp may not make Amber Heard pay $10.35 milliontext_fields
Mumbai: Johnny Depp will not impoverish his ex-wife Amber Heard demanding her to pay the compensation that the court ordered.
A Virginia court days ago ruled that Amber Heard defamed Depp in 2018 writing op-ed about being a victim of domestic violence.
She was ordered to pay $10 million in damages to Depp.
Following the verdict, it is reported that Amber Heard is in financial distress and she could not keep to her promise of fund to a charity.
Now Johnny Depp's lawyer Benjamin Chew said in an interview Amber may not have to pay the money after all. The trail for Depp was not about money, he added.
The trial of the defamation suit ended days ago with Depp winning it.
Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos asked Depp's lawyer Benjamin Chew if Depp would be ready for the settlement suit with Amber.
Would Depp, the host asked, waive monetary damages to be paid by Amber if she agreed not to appeal the court ruling.
Benjamin hinted in his reply that it might happen. Johnny Depp was happy about winning the harrowing court trial, which supplied nuggets of gossips to media.
His attorney Ben Chew testified to Good Morning America that Depp is satisfied with his "total win" of the suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Just as the verdict came out in favour of him, Depp was "over the moon" he said, adding that the actor felt like the weight of the world lifted off his shoulders.
"And I feel that finally, after six years, he's gotten his life back," He said.
Meanwhile, Heard's team reportedly termed Depp's victory a blow to #MeToo and women's rights.
Camille Vasquez, a fellow lawyer to Depp responded to the claim saying it was "disappointing"
