Johnny Depp “just wanted the truth,” according to a source close to Johnny Depp, who is insisting that he did not want Amber Heard to win her lawsuit against him in court.
After Heard decided to settle the defamation case that had been brought against her by her ex-husband, a source close to the actor, 59, told that “part of the point of appealing it” for Heard, 36, “was both the financial reasons and to ensure there wasn’t a judgment in place against her — that has significant ramifications.”
“This verdict will never be overturned,” the source says, adding of Depp, “He has always stated he wasn’t seeking to ruin her.” He specifically denied that it was about money, and he was right.
He was just interested in knowing the truth.”
On Monday morning, Heard announced in a statement that she had made “a very difficult decision” to settle the defamation case brought against her by her ex-husband in Virginia.
During the trial, a seven-person jury found that Heard defamed Depp in her op-ed about domestic violence, and they awarded him more than $10 million in damages.
