How Much Money Will Johnny Depp Get As He Wins Defamation Lawsuit?

The court battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has finally concluded, with both parties retaining their points. In this battle, most people supported Johnny Depp after hearing his confessions about his struggles over the years.

The two had been arguing in court, with each actor alleging that the other had mistreated them. We don’t need to go into detail about what happened because everyone is aware of it.

But now that Johnny Depp has won the defamation lawsuit, everyone is wondering how much money he will receive as a result of his victory. If you’re interested, here’s everything we know about Johnny Depp’s victory.

Johnny Depp Wasn’t Present At The Court During The Verdict

Johnny Depp was not present at the hearing today. However, the actor did attend by watching it from where he was. He was unable to attend the verdict due to previously scheduled work commitments made prior to the trial.

It was defamation for Amber Heard to call him a sexual abuser. Johnny’s absence during the hearings did raise some questions from Amber Heard’s side.

A source close to Heard mentioned Johnny’s absence. “Your presence shows where your priorities are. Johnny Depp plays guitar in the UK while Amber Heard waits for a verdict in Virginia. Depp is taking his snickering and lack of seriousness on tour.”

A source close to Depp told Law & Crime, “Due to previously scheduled work commitments made before the trial, Mr. Depp will not be physically present for today’s 3 pm verdict and will be watching from the United Kingdom.”

How Much Money Is Johnny Depp Getting As He Wins The Defamation Lawsuit?

Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for defamation for around $50 Million and as we know Amber Heard countersued him for $100 Million.

The jury awarded Johnny Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages after he won the defamation lawsuit.

However, the judge lowered Johnny’s $5 million punitive damage award because Virginia law caps punitive damages in these cases at $350,000. According to calculations, Aquaman’s ‘Amber’ owes Pirates of the Caribbean’s ‘Johnny’ $8,350,000.

Do you want to know about Johnny’s Net Worth after this win? Looks like you do. Johnny Depp’s net worth is estimated to be $150 million. Johnny Depp’s career included several blockbuster movies that grossed more than $3.4 billion in the United States and $8.7 billion worldwide.

And the money he won will now be added to his already enormous net worth.

The Number Of Witnesses They Called

Over the course of 23 days, Depp’s team called more than 40 witnesses, while Heard’s team called 22. Over three days, the jury deliberated for 13 hours.

In this trial, everything about their personal lives became public.

According to Depp’s lawyers, the actress physically injured Depp when she “threw a vodka bottle at him that hit his hand and exploded, severing the end of one of his fingers.”

Following the verdict, Johnny Depp’s crew rejoices and embraces one another. The courtroom is then cleared. The only thing missing from this celebration was the legend.

Everyone was ecstatic after the verdict; they were waiting for the team, and everyone began yelling and shouting in delight.
