An American news portal has revealed that her feud with ex-husband Johnny Depp has cost Amber Heard more than $10 million, which she had to pay him, according to a recently closed defamation trial verdict. More than 6,000 pages of court documents from his legal battle were recently unsealed, revealing many shocking details of his highly publicized legal battle.

According to a new report, Amber Heard’s team claimed in pre-trial filings that they suffered financial losses in the range of “$47-50 million” over a “3-5 year” period due to defamatory statements against Johnny.
A The Daily Beast said Amber walked away from “tens of millions of dollars” by refusing to accept Johnny Depp’s earnings from the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The sequel was filmed during Johnny and Amber’s wedding, which made it “community property” and entitled them to half of the proceeds.
Amber’s team asked the judge to exclude evidence from “irrelevant personal matters” that Johnny’s team could produce, such as nude pictures of Amber, past relationships and the fact that she was an escort at one time, the portal reported.
Amber faced widespread hate speech online as the trial lasted for weeks, but was open to public viewing. It finally ended on June 1 when a jury awarded Johnny $10.35 million in damages. In her countersuit, Amber won one of the three defamation counts and was awarded $2 million in damages. The court rejected his request to set aside the verdict on the mistaken identity of one of the jurors.
Meanwhile, Johnny has already made his comeback with a bang. His debut art collection titled ‘Friends and Heroes’ sold out within hours on the London Art Gallery’s website on Thursday, earning the actor millions, ANI reported. He will also appear in a French period film.
