THE MORNING AFTER: What Went Wrong for Amber Heard in Johnny Depp Trial?


Actor Johnny Depp wins his defamation suit against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, but why? The jury found unanimously that Heard’s published op-ed describing her as a  “public figure representing domestic abuse” tarnished Depp’s reputation and damaged his career.

Amber Heard did win the second of her three counts in a $100 million counterclaim. The jury found that Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman defamed Heard when he told the Daily Mail that Heard had set up Depp in a hoax when police answered a domestic call at their home in May 2016.
