Amber Heard, the Aquaman star, has recently filed bankruptcy, allowing her to no longer pay Johnny Depp's nearly $10 million settlement.
Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp is a remarkable case of the never-ending tale. I would be shocked if they did not direct a film about this.
A Hollywood film has been encased in it.
Amber Heard's situation has changed, and why is she now in the news?
Amber Heards' financial situation has been described as being incredulous for several years.
Her insurance company is suing her after she lost the trial against her ex-husband, actor Johnny Depp.
Ms. Depp was forced to pay $15 million in damages. It rang out to just over $10 million.
Amber Heard decided she would never pay Johnny Depp the amount. She then began her appeal of the jury's decision.
The judge informed the Aquaman actress that an appeal would be quite costly.
AMBER HEARD HAS FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY AND CLAIMS SHE CANT PAY JOHNNY DEPP SETTLEMENT
Amber Heard has enraged everyone by declaring bankruptcy after being unable to pay Johnny Depp the amount awarded by a jury in Fairfax, Virginia.
This resulted in a flood of reactions on social media following a well-publicized trial.
Amber Heard's legal team warned the judge that she would be unable to pay the actor for her role in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie after the amount was revealed.
Ms. Heard has done everything in her power to evit paying Mr. Depp $10 million since then.
She has tried unsuccessfully to slash the amount, and has now decided to file for bankruptcy, which was her last resort.
According to a statement issued by the artists agent, it was stated:
WHAT HAPPENS TO AMBER HEARD RIGHT NOW?
Amber Heard filed for bankruptcy on July 20 and filed an appeal with the Commonwealth of Virginia on July 21.
Due of a lack of funds, the 35-year-old lady would request that the judgment be declared null and non-nil.
Johnny Depp's camp issued the following statement in response:
Amber Heard's future: What will happen to her? Quite difficult to say because she is in a tough situation. The only way out I can see is for her to persuade Johnny Depp to withdraw from the court settlement and release her from the obligation to pay the money. This may be a viable escape route for her.
Attorneys for Mr. Depp have stated that he was never motivated by money, and that he would be willing to let the money go.
What do you think of the news?
Are you surprised to learn that Amber Heard has filed for bankruptcy?
Amber Heard's financial situation has become bleak following the trial against her ex-husband Jonny Deep, but she surprised everyone by filing for bankruptcy after being unable to pay a court fine imposed by the Pirates of the Caribbean actors.
Social media was swamped with recordings, comments, and even live streams of the testimony given by both performers during the several weeks of the hearings.
After the trial, the jury determined that Heard was held accountable for Johnny Depp's $10 million in damages. Depp will be ordered to pay damages of $2 million.
Once the judgment was rendu, the legal team for the Aquaman actress warned the judge that she would be unable to pay the debt.
Heard has been battling in court since the jury's decision to reduce the $10 million. She is said to have filed an appeal against the jury's decision.
We believe the court made mistakes that prevented a fair and First Amendment-compliant verdict, and we are appealing the decision.
Amber Heard filed for bankruptcy on July 20 and filed an appeal with the Commonwealth of Virginia on July 21. She wants the ruling to be declared invalid and non-null owing to a lack of funds.
Johnny Depp's legal team responded, "The verdict speaks for itself, and Mr. Depp believes it's time for both parties to continue on with their lives and rebuild their confidence." However, if Ms. Heard is willing to continue the action by appealing the verdict, Mr. Depp will file a concurrent appeal to ensure that the Court of Appeals reviews the whole record and all relevant legal issues.
