Celebrities Supporting Johnny Depp Amid His Ex Wife Amber Heard's Settlement News

Celebrities have been supporting Johnny Depp amid all of his legal issues with ex wife Amber Heard, and with this week’s big update, we’re breaking it down for you again.

Johnny originally filed a defamation lawsuit against Amber back in 2019. His original filing was for $50 million in damages after she published a 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post that said she became a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Amber never mentioned Johnny by name in the piece, but his lawyers argued that it was about him. Johnny has continually denied all allegations of domestic abuse.

In the spring of 2022, the case finally went to trial and in June of 2022, the jury ultimately decided that Amber did defame him on all three counts against her with her 2018 op-ed. They awarded compensatory damages to Johnny and ordered Amber to pay $15 million in damages ($10 million in compensatory damages, plus $5 million in punitive damages). The jury did find Johnny guilty on one count out of three in Amber‘s countersuit against him and was ordered to pay $2 million.

On Monday (December 19), Amber decided to not pursue a legal appeal and settled out of court for $1 million with her ex husband.

Now, we’re breaking down which celebrities have publicly spoken out in support of Johnny over the past few months. We’ve only included celebrities who have made public statements.
