After a six-week trial, the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard defamation case has concluded. The Depp v Heard case took place at the Virginia Fairfax County Circuit Court, where Depp sought compensation from his ex-wife, Heard. The high-profile case has been circulated on YouTube and Instagram with many fans tuning into the live-streamed trial each day.

Seeking $50 million USD in damages for a 2018 The Washington Post piece against Depp for alleged domestic abuse, the jury eventually awarded Depp a total of $15 million USD in the defamation case -- $10 million USD in compensatory damages and $5 million USD in punitive damages. The jurors also found Depp responsible for defamation through his attorney and awarded Heard $2 million USD.
