Earlier this month, the blockbuster defamation trial between former couple Johnny Depp and Amber Heard reached its end.

After an intense legal battle that continued for almost six weeks, the court announced its verdict. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor was clearly the ‘winner’; the seven-member jury decided that Johnny’s ex-wife Amber defamed him through domestic abuse allegations.

After the announcement, both actors expressed their sentiments regarding the trial and the final verdict.

The Pirates actor took to his Instagram and shared his feelings,

“I am truly humbled, my decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought.”

While the Aquaman actress expressed her disappointment with the jury’s decision and said,

“I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.”

“I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly.”

After the trial ended, Johnny Depp made several public appearances and expressed her sentiments on different occasions. Not only he but his legal team also made a few statements regarding the case and the victory.

Recently the Aquaman actress spoke on NBC: Today Show; this is her first interview with a TV channel after the conclusion of her trial. The interview was being aired in portions on NBC throughout the week, and the final hour-long compiled discussion with host Savannah Guthrie was telecasted on NBC’s Today on Friday, June 17 at 8 o clock.

In one of her latest interview clips with Guthrie, the 36-year-old actress was asked if she had any substantial evidence against Johnny Depp that the actress could have presented in court and turned the tables.

“Is there one piece of evidence that you wish the jury had seen? That you could point to… you say, ‘ah this would have made the difference.’” Asked Savannah.

“Yeah. There’s a binder worth of years of noted dating back to 2011 from the very beginning of my relationship that was taken by my doctor who I was reporting the abuse to,” Heard answered.

[My doctor’s] Her notes represented years — years — of real-time explanations of what was going on,” she claimed.

She further said that her therapist’s notes contained every piece of information that Heard shared with her in different sessions.

“I told my therapist everything, and she wrote it all. She wrote that he used to hit me. He threw me on the floor in January 2012, once threw me against a wall, and threatened to kill me. It’s all written”

According to Guthrie’s husband, Michael Feldman, who worked with Johnny’s legal team, the ‘notes’ weren’t solid proof.  

A voiceover during the interview told viewers that,

“The judge ruled those notes were hearsay and inadmissible because it was a self-administered psychological diagnosis by her and her known which to put simply as just hearsay as just reciting what she told them.”

Guthrie also asked Heard that if she was speaking the truth about Depp’s violence and abuse, then why did none of his ex-girlfriends or friends come forward and say something about him, to which she replied,

“Look what happened to me when I came forward, would you?”
