Heard is counter-suing Depp for $100 million under the claim that the Hollywood actor is trying to ruin her reputation.

The lawsuit went to trial in England and Heard testified during the case. She claimed Depp "threatened to kill" her "many times," the BBC reported. In November 2020, Depp lost the case after a judge ruled the defendants had shown "what they published in the meaning which I have held the words to bear was substantially true," the AP reported at the time. Depp was denied an appeal, but he maintains that he hasn’t been violent toward Heard.

2022 – Depp’s defamation case began on April 12, in Fairfax, Virginia. The case is ongoing with the public watching closely.

Celebrity tabloid TMZ published photos of the restraining order filing and of Heard’s face. Depp and his team have continually denied Heard’s abuse allegations and has said that Heard was the one who acted violently during their 15-month marriage.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard: Net worth

Johnny Depp

During his lawsuit against his former business managers, The Management Group, Depp claimed he lost $650 million in film earnings in the 13-year period due to mismanagement, according to Variety.

The Management Group counter-sued with documentation that detailed Depp’s spending, which included a $3.6 million annual expenditure for personal staff, a $30,000 expenditure on wine, a $75 million expenditure that went to acquiring 14 homes around the world and more. Depp and the Management Group settled their case in 2018, Fox News reported at the time.

Celebrity Net Worth estimated that Depp’s net worth is around $100 million when factoring in his reported real estate and asset portfolio and the $20 million he reportedly earns when signing onto a feature film. The celebrity news outlet cited Depp’s 2017 lawsuit against his former business managers, which revealed the actor’s earnings from 2003 to 2016.

Depp’s estimated net worth was $48 million in 2016, according to Forbes’ Celebrity 100 Earnings list, which ranks highest-paid celebrities in Hollywood by income. Depp hasn’t reappeared on the business magazine’s annual ranking.

When Depp and Heard’s divorce settlement awarded Heard $7 million in 2016, she claimed she would donate her settlement payout to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, according to TMZ. However, Depp’s recent defamation lawsuit against her has revealed that she’s only donated a portion so far.

What Johnny Depp needs to prove to win his case against Amber Heard

Johnny Depp’s legal team has rested their case in Amber Heard’s defamation trial, now in its fourth week in court in Fairfax, Virginia. Judge Penney Azcarate says the case will proceed, denying the motion to strike in regards to two statements, but keeping one under advisement.

This week Depp’s agent described his career leading up to and following the publication of the op-ed, calling it “catastrophic”. He said Depp lost his role in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and he was unable to sign any studio productions in the years after.

An expert witness testified the actor potentially lost a total of $40m in earnings.

Further testimony was given by a nurse employed by Heard who said she was prone to outbursts of rage and described apparent injuries to her after the couple had allegedly fought.

Heard is expected to testify on Wednesday and provide her own account of the relationship. The first witness her team will call is a psychologist who is expected to refute diagnoses of personality disorders heard earlier in the trial.

Heard’s nurse testifies about notes stating she was ‘jealous and anxious’ about Depp’s career

Amber Heard’s former nurse testified about notes stating that Ms Heard was “jealous and anxious” of Johnny Depp’s fame and his ability to meet women often.

During a deposition recorded via video conference on 4 February of this year, nurse Erin Falati was asked about notes she made in September 2014.

Judge denies Heard bid to dismiss Depp defamation suit

Judge Penney Azcarate has denied Amber Heard’s bid to dismiss Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit.

The defamation trial between Mr Depp and Ms Heard began on Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia following Mr Depp’s lawsuit against his ex-wife in March 2019.

Heard’s motion to dismiss the case is denied by Judge Penney Azcarate, who strikes two motions but keeps one under advisement. The case will proceed and Amber Heard will take the stand this week.

The court breaks for lunch until 1.30pm.

Depp’s lawyer Ben Chew begins his argument for rejecting the dismissal by saying they have shown through their witnesses and evidence that Heard was the abuser, not Depp.

He says defamation can happen by inference and Heard’s claims of domestic and sexual abuse and assault were defamatory.

Mr Chew adds that the testimony of the ACLU’s Terence Dougherty “was disgusting”. He said they pitched a Heard op-ed using Johnny Depp’s name to make it more marketable to publishers around the release of the movie Aquaman.

What Johnny Depp needs to prove to win his case against Amber Heard

Court resumes with Heard’s legal team arguing for the case to be dismissed.

As a reminder, here’s what Depp has to prove:

As a public person, Depp has to show evidence of ‘actual malice’ on Heard’s part.

Johnny Depp lost $40m after the publication of Amber Heard’s op-ed, a forensic accountant testified shortly before Mr Depp’s legal team rested their case.


“With a prior arrest for violent domestic abuse and having confessed under oath to a series of violent attacks on Mr. Depp, Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse; she is a perpetrator,” the lawsuit stated. “Ms. Heard violently abused Mr. Depp, just as she was caught and arrested for violently abusing her former domestic partner.”

Depp concluded his testimony on Monday, saying he was the victim of domestic violence in their relationship and was “broken” by the time their marriage fell apart.

His fourth day on the witness stand in a Virginia court ended with his attorneys playing audio from a conversation that took place after Heard had secured a restraining order against him in 2016.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star said he agreed to Heard’s request to meet in a San Francisco hotel room because he thought she might retract her accusation that he had abused her.

In the recording, Depp proposed the couple issue a joint letter saying they loved each other and the media had created a storm around them. The suggestion was an attempt to find a “peaceful settlement,” Depp said.

Heard resisted the idea and challenged him to go public with his claim that he was the one who had suffered abuse. “Tell the world, Johnny,” she said. “Tell them I, Johnny Depp – a man – I’m a victim too of domestic violence.”

Depp said he responded: “Yes, I am.”

Heard alleged in 2016 that Depp was “verbally and physically abusive” to her, according to a complaint she filed that year.

She claimed Depp bruised her face after throwing a phone at her in their Los Angeles home.

Depp denied the allegation and was never charged with a crime.

Last week he said during testimony: “Never did I myself reach the point of striking Ms Heard in any way nor have I ever struck any woman in my life.”

Depp claims his middle finger was partly severed in 2015 after Heard threw two bottles of vodka at him.

“She threw the bottle, and it made contact and shattered everywhere. I honestly didn’t feel the pain at first, at all. I felt heat, and I felt something were dripping down my hand, and then I looked down and realised the tip of my finger had been severed, and I was looking at my bone sticking out, and blood was just pouring out,” he said.

Heard’s lawyers have claimed Depp injured his finger himself.

Speaking on his claims Heard’s article affected his career, Depp said: “I would be a real simpleton to not think that there was an effect on my career based on Ms Heard’s words, whether they mentioned my name or not.”

Heard’s lawyers have claimed Depp was already set to be dropped from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, in which he starred as Captain Jack Sparrow, or have his role reduced for the sixth film before publication of her opinion piece.

On Tuesday forensic psychologist Shannon Curry took the stand, saying Heard shows symptoms borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder.

She also claimed Heard exaggerated signs of PTSD, which she said she experienced as a result of her relationship with Depp.

Dr Curry said PTSD was a “really tough disorder to find out if someone is faking it or not”.

“It’s one of the most easily faked disorders, most of us know what it’s like to feel anxious and a lot of people have seen war movies that depict someone having PTSD,” she said.

Asked about her conclusions, she said: “Ms Heard did not have PTSD and there were pretty significant indications that she was grossly exaggerating the symptoms of PTSD when asked about them.

Heard was arrested in 2009 for allegedly striking then-girlfriend Tasya Van Reeat the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Prosecutors in King County, Washington, declined to formally press charges though police took her in for misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree/domestic violence, according to USA Today.

When news of the arrest surfaced in 2016, Van Ree said Heard was “wrongfully” accused.

“It’s disheartening that Amber’s integrity and story are being questioned yet again,” she reportedly wrote. “Amber is a brilliant, honest and beautiful woman and I have the utmost respect for her. We shared 5 wonderful years together and remain close to this day.”

Depp lost a separate libel lawsuit in the United Kingdom. Tabloid The Sun described him as a “wife beater” in a headline. The trial court ruled that the headline was “substantially true.” His appeal failed in March 2021.
