After the Defamation Verdict, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s Career:
We’d like to share with you some exciting news from Los Angeles. Could the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star resurrect his flagging career after a US jury largely sided with Johnny Depp in his libel case against Amber Heard? Jubliant Deep said on Wednesday that the jury “gave me my life back” after he was awarded more than $10 million in damages for defamation, compared to only $2 million for his ex-wife who was countersued.
