What Happened Between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp?
Amber and Johnny first met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009, as both actors recalled during their highly publicized trial. They quickly fell in love and got married in 2015. Fifteen months into their marriage, Amber filed for divorce, and they finalized their divorce in 2017.
In 2018, Amber wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which she claimed she spoke out about sexual and domestic violence. Though she did not mention Johnny by name, he sued her for defamation in 2019.
The case went to court in mid-2022 and was aired on live television for the entire world to watch. The trial made headlines for Amber and Johnny’s graphic depictions of their alleged assaults against each other — various security camera videos, text messages, pictures and more details from their arguments were shown in the courtroom.
Many of Johnny’s supporters rallied around the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, while others on social media called Amber a “liar” after she took the stand to give her testimony.
Johnny ended up winning the defamation trial, being granted $10 million from Amber. For her part, she was granted $2 million. The exes agreed to settle the case at the end of 2022.
