On June 1, a jury in Virginia Johnny Depp awarded a whopping $15 million in damages after Amber Heard was found liable for defamation of the Pirates of the Caribbean star. Now Amber Heard shares her displeasure with the jury verdict an intimate interview met Today Show-journalist Savannah Guthrie.
Is Johnny Depp taking his ex Amber Heard back to court after her statements in the TV interview? †
Amber Heard still loves Johnny Depp
Two weeks after her courtroom loss, she once again spoke about the entire process and the feelings she felt in an interview with Savannah Guthrie in the second episode of her Today-show van NBC News† She says she has no grudge against Johnny: ‘I love him. I loved him with all my heart. And I tried my best to make a deeply broken relationship work, and I couldn’t. I have no ill feelings or ill will towards him at all.’
Amber emphasizes what her team said on television before: the jury verdict was influenced by ‘unfair social media representation’. She also says that her ex-husband’s “paid employees and hikes (random people)’ to sit on the witness stand on his behalf. “It feels like he did that,” she says. “I’m not a good victim, I get it. I am not a sympathetic victim. I’m not a perfect victim,” she adds. “When I testified, I asked the jury to just see me as a human being.”
Fear about speaking out
She also expresses fear of others wanting to speak out about partner abuse. “I’m afraid that whatever I do, whatever I say and how I say it, every step I take will provide another chance for this kind of silence. That’s what a defamation lawsuit is for, to use your voice.”
She goes on to say, “I feel like a lot of the process was meant to slander who I am as a person, my credibility, and call me a liar in every possible way.” Legal experts now say that Johnny Depp can sue his ex again based on the new rulings.
The full conversation will be broadcast on Friday by the American program Dateline.
