The seven-week trial between ex-husbands Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has ended. The court found the latter guilty of defaming the American actor.
Depp spoke about the court's decision on his Instagram.
"Six years ago, my life changed forever, the lives of children, the lives of loved ones, the lives of people who supported and believed in me for many, many years. All in an instant. False, very serious and criminal charges were brought against me through the media, resulting in an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. All of this circled the world twice in a nanosecond, and it had a seismic effect on my life and my career. And six years later, the judges brought me back to life. My decision to continue this work, knowing full well the height of the legal hurdles I would have to face and the inevitable global spectacle of my life, was made only after serious consideration. Tell the truth — this is what I owe to my children and to all who remain steadfast in their support for me, I feel at peace knowing that I have finally achieved this. I am overwhelmed with an outpouring of love, great support and kindness from all over the world. I hope that my desire to tell the truth has helped others, men or women, in my situation. I also hope that the position will now return to innocence until proven guilty both in the courts and in the media. I want to thank the judges, jurors, court officials, and sheriffs who took the time to make this happen, as well as my diligent and determined legal team, who did an extraordinary job of helping me share the truth. The best is yet to come, and a new chapter has finally begun. Truth never dies, — Depp wrote.
Amber Heard also did not remain silent and told how disappointed the results were.
"The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I'm heartbroken because, despite a ton of evidence, it still wasn't enough to counter the disproportionate power and influence of my ex-husband. I am even more disappointed with what this sentence means for other women. This is a failure. This goes back to a time when a woman who spoke and spoke up could be publicly shamed and humiliated. This rejects the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously. I believe that Johnny's lawyers managed to get the jury to ignore the key issue of free speech and ignore evidence that was so compelling that we won in the UK. I'm sorry I lost this case. But it makes me even sadder that I seem to have lost the right that I, as an American, should speak freely and openly, — she wrote.
