Depp vs. Heard Jury Reaches Verdict
6/1/2022 10:47 AM PT
This was day 3 of deliberations, and the jury informed the judge just minutes ago they have reached a verdict.
As you know, they will decide both Johnny’s claim that Amber allegedly defamed him, and Amber’s countersuit alleging basically the same thing.
Although Johnny is suing for $50 million and Amber double that, vindication could be even more important to both of them.
Amber will be in court for the reading of the verdict. Johnny will not. A source close to Johnny tells TMZ, “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.”
A rep for Amber is bashing Depp’s decision, telling us, “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.”
As we reported, Johnny has been doing concerts for the last 3 days in the U.K. with Jeff Beck. He presumably will do more concerts there before returning to the U.S.
TMZ will live stream the verdict.
