The appeal was quickly filed by Depp’s attorney but was denied in March 2021.

zRich wrote in a statement she made to Deadline at the time that she “seriously questioned” the verdict. She nonetheless remained optimistic about Depp’s pending lawsuits in the US against Heard.

“Complete, irrefutable proof of the truth in the US defamation case against Ms. Heard, in which she must make full disclosure,” she predicted of what the US trial would show.

Heard, who was romantically involved with Depp from 2012 to 2016, has had to speak out about her abuse experiences during that time, despite Depp filing the cases that sparked both the US and UK court battles.

The US lawsuit took place in April and May 2022 in a courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia. It was based on allegations that Heard defamed Depp by describing herself as a “public figure who advocates domestic violence” in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post.

On June 1, 2022, the jury found Heard guilty of defaming Depp and ordered them to pay him $15 million in damages. They also gave the “Aquaman” actress $2 million in compensation for publicly defaming Heard by one of Depp’s attorneys.

Although there was speculation that Depp was romantically involved with Camille Vasquez, one of his defense attorneys in the US trial, the attorney categorically denied those reports.
