Johnny Depp Actor Already Moved On After Victory, But Battle Against Amber Heard Not Yet Over
Johnny Depp has moved on after winning the defamation trial, but his battle with ex-wife Amber Heard has not come to an end as Heard recently made damaging moves again.
For years, Depp attempted to clear his name and prove his innocence against Amber Heard's accusations against him. This time, his defamation lawsuit led him to regain his life and career after the actress's 2018 The Washington Post op-ed took everything he had.
The jury ultimately awarded the "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, as quoted by Deadline. The latter was reduced to $350,000 since it is the state's statutory cap or legal limit.
Regardless of the amount he is about to receive from Heard, Depp is said to be in high spirits while the "Aquaman" star continues lurking in her own dramas.
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, a source said Depp had already moved on after winning the trial.
"Although he is relieved about the jury's verdict, he isn't gloating about it. He isn't even talking about the trial now. He filed the lawsuit because he considered it necessary. He has moved on though," the insider said.
Fans now rejoice as Depp officially returned to doing what he loves, and they believe he will soon appear in new movies again.
Johnny Depp, Amber Heard's Battle Not Yet Over
Although Depp focuses on his future, Heard is yet to let him go fully as she recently made damaging moves again.
After sharing defamatory statements during her exclusive interview on the "TODAY" show, she reportedly signed a new tell-all book deal.
OK Magazine confirmed that Heard plans to write a book while considering her career in Hollywood. An insider said she would do everything she wants now that she has nothing to lose.
"Amber considers her career in Hollywood over. She's already in talks and is excited about it," a source said, per New York Post. "At this point, she has nothing to lose and wants to tell all."
Another disclosed that the 36-year-old actress does not have a reason to turn down the money since she is now broke.
Still, experts noted that even the tell-all book would not save her from the pitfall due to the things that happened during the defamation trial. In fact, even her interview highlighted that Heard got no credibility after losing the case.
Unlike Heard, Depp has not appeared in an interview to address his win yet.
