Hollywood solidarity, Amber Heart does not benefit from it. Since her long and bitter legal battle against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, the actress has been sidelined by some of her former friends. Sources have indeed assured Star Magazine, that she was totally lost at the moment, both professionally and personally. Several producers and companies would have lost confidence in Amber Heard after the verdict of her lawsuit against her ex-husband. Eager to find a new cozy nest to live with her baby, the actress would have asked for help from three of her closest friends, who would have royally ignored her. An anonymous relative explained that Amber Heard had contacted Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie to ask for their help, in vain.
“Amber reached out to her old party pals like Kirsten Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie, hoping they would help her find accommodation. She got snubbed and, in many cases, outright ghosted” , assured this source. According to her, Amber Heard has even become “radioactive” in the middle since she was sentenced. After weeks of trial, the Fairfax court jury has delivered its verdict. The actress was found guilty of defamation with “unhealthy” intent and will have to pay her ex-husband $15 million in damages. For his part, Johnny Depp will also have to pay a heavy fine of two million euros. A few weeks after this verdict, Amber Heard tried to have the trial annulled before appealing the court’s decision.
Amber Heard: her astonishing decision after her conviction
If the actress challenged the verdict, it is in particular because she believes that a bad juror was present at the trial. “As the court will agree, it is particularly disturbing that an individual not assigned to a jury is participating despite everything – especially in a case like this,” wrote lawyers for Amber Heard in a document. According to Elaine Bredehoft, Amber Heard’s lawyer, her client was deprived of her right to a fair trial. But the judge at the Fairfax court denied the actress’s motion to quash, saying she had “suffered no prejudice” in holding the trial. After this long legal battle, Amber Heard made a decision punch: that of changing the legal team. This is the perfect time to pass the baton, announced his ex-lawyer. I have promised Amber and her appeal team my full cooperation and assistance as they move forward on the path to success.”
