In a meeting with Savanna Guthrie on NBC’s Dateline on Friday night, Amber Heard admitted that she was afraid of being sued again by Johnny Depp.
“I guess that’s the purpose of the defamation lawsuit,” the actress said in her first interview after losing her high-profile case against her famous ex-husband.
“It’s meant to take your vote.”
However, as it turns out, Hurd’s voice is not the only thing she has lost in this lawsuit against Depp.
She also lost a lot of money.
In particular, Hurd owes Depp $ 8.4 million after that appointed a jury of her peers that Hurd has damaged Depp’s career and reputation due to a 2018 publication she wrote for The Washington Post.
Hurd does not quote Depp by name in this piece.
But she said she was a victim of domestic violence, and Depp attacked the recommendation, suing his ex-wife because he said readers would guess with it was the man who abused her.
Meanwhile, shortly after Hurd was found guilty, a source told Page Six that Hurd was broken.
Between rising court fees and a lavish lifestyle in general, Hurd simply cannot afford to pay Depp what he now owes.
The legal account for Hurd’s team of lawyers is borne mainly by The Travelers Companies under the actress’ insurance policy, the same insider explained as an example of these financial problems in early June.
And now we have another proof that the star is fighting.
Late Thursday afternoon, Hurd was spotted at TJ Maxx in Bridgehampton, New York.
Of course, this is a very luxurious city.
But TJ Maxx is not exactly a luxury department store.
Accompanied by her sister, Hurd wore jeans and a large white button-down T-shirt as she examined her clothes this afternoon.
For context? And for comparison?
Depp spent $ 60,000 on the party three weeks ago to celebrate the verdict.
On Sunday, he performed with frequent music partner Jeff Beck at the Helsinki Blues Festival on Sunday, smiling at thousands as he went out.
“The rehearsal was necessary, but he is glad it is over. Although he is relieved by the jury’s verdict, he is not happy about it, “a source told People Magazine for Depp, lying very clearly about the whole thing. malice part.
Hurd, for his part, told Guthrie in a recent interview that she was behind “every word” of the testimony she gave in court – and said Depp had lied many times when he claimed he had not abused her. during their “ugly” marriage.
CEO blame social media for the way it was also adopted during the trial.
Hurd believes that critics on these platforms have played a role in how the jury – which is not isolated – views her.
“What I’ve learned from this experience is that it will never be good enough,” she told NBC.
“If you have proof, then it was a scheme – it was a scam. If you have no evidence, this has not happened.
“If you have a bruise, it’s fake. If you don’t have a bruise, then the violence obviously didn’t hurt you. If you’ve told people, you’re hysterical.
“If you haven’t told anyone, this hasn’t happened.”
Hurd also thinks, and it’s hard to blame her here, that the verdict said a lot about how people look at victims in cases like this.
“I’m not a good victim, I understand,” she told Guthrie.
“I am not a nice victim. I’m not a perfect victim, I understand. I am not a saint.
“I’m not asking anyone to like me.”
