Amber Heard's Attorney Says Actress Can 'Absolutely Not' Pay $10.35 Million to Johnny Depp After Verdict

Amber Heard does not have the means to pay $10.35 million in damages to ex-husband Johnny Depp following their trial verdict on Wednesday, according to her lawyer.

Elaine Bredehoft spoke with Savannah Guthrie on Thursday's episode of the Today show, and, when asked whether her client would be able to pay the amount, said, "Oh, no, absolutely not."

Earlier this week, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 58, won all three defamation claims in the case he brought against his ex-wife over her 2018 op-ed about coming forward with domestic abuse allegations.

The jury awarded Depp $15 million in damages but the Aquaman 2 actress, 36, will only have to pay $10.35 million due to a Virginia law capping punitive damages (the judge reduced the amount).

Depp, meanwhile, was found to have defamed his ex-wife on one of three claims in her countersuit. She was awarded $2 million in damages.
