Johnny Depp tried to submit nude photos of Heard
Court documents obtained by The Daily Beast show Depp’s team attempted to submit nude photos of Heard as evidence, citing her brief stint as an exotic dancer. But that was as little allowed as a suggestion from Heard’s team.
Amber Heard didn’t want Depp’s money

However, Heard decided against it and emailed the attorneys, saying she “stands[sa]I say it’s not about the money”.
Judge Penney Azcarate refused to provide the Heard team with the conversation she had with her lawyers during the divorce proceedings, in which she gave up millions.
Libel lawsuit won
In early June, Depp won the libel suit against Heard after about six weeks on trial. He sued her for $50 million over an article she published in The Washington Post in 2018. In it, she claimed to be a victim of domestic violence. She did not mention her ex-husband by name. Depp said the position always ruined his career, damaged his reputation and cost him a lot of money. Heard then filed a $100 million counterclaim against her ex.
Amber Heard was ordered to pay more than $10 million in damages. Johnny Depp must pay him two million. The remaining 8.35 million was capped at five million due to local laws. Amber Heard and her legal team have appealed the verdict, but the actress is reportedly trying to raise funds. As “TMZ” reports, Heard reportedly sold his home in Yucca Valley in the California desert for $1.05 million.
