The libel suit, which was decided today, was filed by Johnny against Amber in early April of this year. The jury found that Hurd acted with malice in making deliberately false accusations against the actor in order to break his career. Also during the trial, the actress was forced to admit that she had not donated to charity a single dollar out of the 7 million awarded to her during the divorce as compensation – although she had previously stated under oath that the money had long been transferred to everyone to whom she promised them. In addition, it turned out that the actress suffers from several mental disorders at once. Heard now has to pay Depp $15 million in compensation.
