As the trial lasted for weeks in public view, Amber Heard was subjected to a huge online campaign of hatred. On June 1, the case was eventually resolved when the jury awarded Johnny $10.35 million in damages. Amber won one of the three defamation claims in her countersuit and was granted $2 million in damages. The court denied her motion to set aside the verdict due to the incorrect identification of one juror.
Meanwhile, Johnny has already made a triumphant return. As reported by ANI, his debut art collection titled ‘Friends and Heroes’ sold out within hours on a London art gallery’s website on Thursday, earning him millions. In addition, he will appear in a French period film.
