London, Europe Brief news – Amber Heard officially declared her bankruptcy after she lost the appeal against her ex-husband Jonny Deep.
The actress said she is unable to pay the fine of the trial to her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
In the weeks that the process lasted, social networks were filled with videos, comments and even live streams of the testimonies delivered by both actors.
After the end of the trial, the jury ruled that Heard had to pay $10 million in damages to Johnny Depp. Depp would also have to pay $2 million as compensation.
As soon as the verdict was handed down by the judge, the Aquaman actress’ legal team explained to the judge that the woman would not have enough money to pay off the debt.
Since then, Heard has been in a legal process to find options other than paying the $10 million. It is now known that she has appealed the jury’s decision so that the fine will be lower.
“We believe the court made errors that prevented a fair and First Amendment-compliant verdict. Therefore, we are appealing the verdict,” a spokesperson for the artist said in a statement.
Amber Heard filed for bankruptcy and on July 21 filed the appeal with the state of Virginia. The 35-year-old woman would be seeking a nullity of the judgment because she does not have the resources to pay her debt.
