Six years later, I was given my life by the jury. I am truly humbled,” shared Depp, who was in the U.K. for work obligations when the verdict was read. The goal was always to expose the truth from the beginning. To my children and those who have supported me with their unwavering support, speaking the truth is something I owe them. It is a relief to know that I am finally able to do this.

A jury in Virginia awarded Depp $15 million in damages, though the judge presiding over the case later reduced punitive damages to the state’s legal limit of $350,000—making the total damages awarded almost $10.4 million. Heard, who previously filed a $100 million countersuit against Depp over an alleged “online smear campaign,” was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages.

Heard’s attorney, Elaine Charlson Bredehoft, recently said that her client “absolutely” plans to appeal the jury’s verdict.

Bredehoft said that she has “excellent grounds” for doing so. Today on June 2. “There were so many evidences that didn’t come in.”
