Less than 24 hours later and Amber Heard already has plans following her loss in court to Johnny Depp, highlighted by her attorneys claims about her financial state. During a recent interview, attorneys for Amber Heard revealed that she’s “absolutely not” able to pay Johnny Depp the $15 million that she now owes him after losing the lengthy defamation case—they also stated that an appeal is coming soon.
@NYPost reports, Elaine Bredehoft, head legal counsel for Amber Heard, recently stated during an interview with the ‘Today’ show this morning that her client is unable to pay the multi-million judgement against her and that a formal appeal of the verdict is forthcoming. When asked directly if Amber Heard has the financial means to pay Johnny Depp the $15 million she owes him, Bredehoft replied “Oh no, absolutely not.” She also blamed the recent court loss on the “enormous amount of evidence [that] was suppressed.”
Bredehoft further stated that being unable to present medical records and alleged text messages between Amber and Johnny hurt their case:
“They were able to suppress the medical records, which were very, very significant because they showed a pattern going all the way back to 2012 of Amber reporting this to her therapist, for example. We had significant amount of texts, including from Mr. Depp’s assistants, saying ‘When I told him he kicked you, he cried, he is so sorry.’ That didn’t come in.”
As we previously reported, following Johnny Depp’s long-fought victory over her in court, Amber Heard quickly posted her feelings to social media, partially writing “The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disappropriate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.”
