After years of legal disputes, a legal settlement between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Today, the legal dispute between American actor Johnny Depp, 59, and his ex-wife, Amber Hurd, 36, was officially closed today, through a settlement that required Hurd to pay $1 million to her ex-husband.
Today, Hurd confirmed the news circulating in this regard, describing it as a difficult decision, and that she made this decision after losing confidence in the American justice system.
For his part, Johnny Depp’s defense team welcomed the agreement, stressing that their client had pledged to pay the amount to charities, and that it was important for them that the truth had appeared in this file.
The legal battle between the former spouses stemmed from an article published by the “Washington Post” in 2018, in which Heard described herself as a “public figure representing domestic violence,” without naming her ex-husband.
Depp confirmed that this article “destroyed his reputation and his career,” and sued his ex-wife for defamation to obtain damages of $ 50 million, and Heard responded with a counterclaim, in which she demanded double compensation.
After 6 weeks of trial, the jury concluded in Fairfax Court in the suburbs of Washington that the former spouses had slandered each other’s reputation, but they estimated that the damage to Deeb was greater.
