È stato praticamente il processo del secolo quando Amber Heard e Johnny Depp si sono affrontati in tribunale per sei settimane, dopo che Depp ha citato in giudizio la sua ex moglie per diffamazione in merito a un articolo di opinione che aveva scritto per il Washington Post nel 2018. Depp ha presentato una richiesta di $ 50 milioni di azioni legali, mentre Heard ha poi intentato una controquerela per $ 100 milioni, secondo The Hollywood Reporter.
Depp eventually won the trial and Heard was ordered to pay her ex $10.3 million, per Courthouse News Service, after which she made her feelings clear about the ruling in interviews. But what has she been up to since?
Amber Heard has reportedly been in Europe since the Johnny Depp trial
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's names haven't quite been in the gossip columns so much since the trial came to an end, which has led fans to speculate how the latter in particular has been doing since losing the court battle. A source spoke out on what Heard has supposedly been up to since the verdict was reached, claiming to Entertainment Tonight the "Aquaman" actor has been in Europe since June. "She feels like she gets more privacy while overseas, likes it there, and is more comfortable. She is treated well and can be more under the radar and just be with her daughter [Oonagh Paige]," they claimed, adding, "She wants to move on and prepare for her next chapter." The insider also stated Heard's been concentrating on being a mom, while another source told People they spend every day together. "They stroll around, visit parks and enjoy family time."
It seems if Heard follows through with her court activity following the trial though, the whole thing could be in her life a little while longer. In October, Heard's lawyers filed an appellate brief that included 16 grounds for appeal regarding the defamation case. Heard was awarded $2m as from her countersuit (it was claimed one of Depp's lawyers had defamed her), and she alleged that because both she and her former husband were awarded a sum that the whole thing was "inherently and irreconcilably inconsistent".
