After her false allegations, Depp sued Heard because she wrote a defamatory op-ed in the Washington Post, where she claimed that she was domestically abused. The Rum Diary actress didn’t mention the name of Depp in her op-ed but it was quite obvious that she wrote about him.

After her statements, many people bashed him for being a violent husband and they also removed Depp from the Fantastic Beast franchise.

When Depp filed a case against his ex-wife who were trying to defame him, in response, Heard countersued him and named him a manipulative liar. The trial of their bitter legal battle lasted more than five weeks, and finally the verdict of court came in favor of the 59-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean actor in June 2022.

After deciding mutually, in Fairfax, Virginia, not all of the seven jury members gave their decision in favor of him but also awarded Depp over $10 million in damages.

The court verdict declared that Amber Heard tried to defame her ex-husband for the domestic abuse as she claimed in her Washington Post op-ed in 2018.

The Aquaman actress was ordered by court to pay $350,000 in damages and also $8 million in compensatory damages. However Heard made a claim that she didn’t have enough funds so she couldn’t pay the total amount.

The Barbadian singer has been receiving a lot of criticism and backlash from many people after the news went viral that she has invited Johnny Depp in her show.

“if Rihanna wanted to ACTUALLY make a social statement about male victims of abuse, there were so many better options for her Fenty show… #FireDepp #FentyBeauty,”

someone wrote on Twitter.

“I love Rihanna. LOVE. I go to bat for her talent and her genius all the time. I own so many Fenty beauty products, not because I love Rihanna but because they’re actually AMAZING & I would buy without a celebrity name attached. But this sucks big time,” a person wrote.

 “I am so disappointed. Yes, she doesn’t owe me anything, yes, she doesn’t care, yes, cancel culture doesn’t exist. But it’s just me, my opinion, my admiration for her that is disappointed. Just my feeling,” someone said.

“Johnny Depp has been embraced as a hero by unhinged right-wing misogynist extremists, and now he’s been invited to appear in the@SavageXFenty show. Never expected such a powerful woman to succumb to the #MeToo backlash. Really disappointing @rihanna,” another one said.
