Amber Heard will pay Johnny Depp $1 million to settle their legal battle

Amber Heard took to her Instagram on 19th December Monday to share updates over the settlement of her legal battle with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Moreover, in ..., she claimed that she came to the conclusion after a lot of deliberation. In addition, she continues to maintain her innocence and stated that settling the case certainly does not mean that she is pleading guilty.

She wrote, ‘I have made no admission. This is not an act of concession. There are no restrictions or gags with respect to my voice moving forward.’

Furthermore, she continued to add that she has been trying for six years to emancipate herself from the incident. However, she is brought back to it by the case.

Heard mentioned, ‘It’s important for me to say that I never chose this. This is an opportunity to emancipate myself from something I attempted to leave over six years ago and on terms, I can agree to.’

She added, ‘I make this decision having lost faith in the American legal system, where my unprotected testimony served as entertainment and social media fodder.’

Besides that, multiple outlets reported that the former couple’s lawyers have reached a settlement that the Aquaman actress’ insurance company will pay Depp $1 million. 

Netizens react to Amber Heard’s statement

Several netizens believe that Amber Heard is forced to come to a settlement with Johnny Depp as her statement mentioned that it was not her choice. It simply indicates that her attorneys might have influenced her to take this decision. 

Additionally, few users spoke in favor of her saying that the judicial system did not treat her fairly.

Meanwhile, Depp supporters rejoiced at the news and deemed it to be another win.

A user wondered, ‘Do you think Heard’s insurance companies pulled the plug on her appeal? Forcing her to settle.’

Someone else said, ‘I’m glad it’s over. A huge amount of people don’t believe her lies. Johnny has moved on and been a total hero for Captain Kori.’

For those unversed, Depp and Heard have been embroiled in a legal battle since 2016 when the latter accused the Pirates of the Caribbean actor of domestic violence.
