Heard’s lawyer says actress can’t pay $10 million

‘Aquaman’ actress Amber Heard cannot afford to pay USD 10 million in damages to Johnny Depp following the jury’s ruling in Depp’s favor in the defamation trial, her lawyer Elaine Bredehoft told ‘Today’.

The defamation trial between Depp and Heard ended on June 1 as the jury ruled that Heard defamed Depp with her 2018 Washington Post op-ed. When asked by ‘Today’ if Heard would be able to afford the $10 million in damages that she’s being ordered to pay, Bredehoft answered bluntly, “Oh no. Absolutely not.”

Elaine told ‘Today’ that she believed Johnny Depp’s legal team worked to “demonize” Heard and was able to suppress “an enormous amount of evidence” in the defamation trial.
