Depp sued Heard for $ 50 million (£ 40.1 million) for allegedly suggesting he had bullied her in 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Although she did not mention his name, he claimed that the article affected his ability to work.

The two-month trial ended on July 1, when the jury backed Depp, stating that Heard had defamed him on all three counts.

The jurors awarded Depp $ 10 million (£ 8.6 million) in compensatory damages and $ 5 million (£ 4 million) in criminal damages before Fairfax County Judge Penney Azcarate lowered the latter to the state legal limit of £ 350,000 (£ 305,000).

Heard won one of her three counterclaims, and the jury found that Depp – through his lawyer Adam Waldman – defamed her by stigmatizing her allegations about the 2016 “Ambush, Hoax” incident.

She received $ 2 million (£ 1.7 million) in damages but $ 0 in criminal damages.

In a recent interview Inheritance star Brian Cox said he “feels sorry for” Heard during the trial and that he thinks he “got a hard end”. The actor also once called Depp “overrated,” which he later said he regretted.
