    Johnny Depp made a bizarre, surprise appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards with a sequence of cameos as the event’s signature “moonman.” The award show took place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Sunday night, and throughout the evening, an astronaut floated from the ceiling as a nod to the VMA’s “moonman” statuette. Shortly after Fergie and Lizzo wrapped up the first musical performance of the night, the astronaut lifted his visor shield and Depp’s face was digitally imposed inside of the helmet. “Hey, you know what? I needed the work,” Depp said, as the crowd cheered. Depp’s moonman remained present in the air throughout the evening. At one point, the show came back from commercials, and Depp welcomed viewers back by saying “Hey VMAs, let’s get back to the f*cking music, shall we?” Later on, Depp once again welcomed back viewers from an ad break by telling the crowd “I just want you guys to know that I’m available for birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, wakes, any old thing you need. Anything. Oh, and I’m...
    Amber Heard has dumped the attorney who defended her in her unsuccessful defamation trial with Johnny Depp as she now tries to appeal the verdict.  Elaine Charlson Bredehoft, who represented the Aquaman actress in the six-week defamation trial, has parted ways with Heard. Attorney's David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown, who represented The New York Times earlier this year in a defamation lawsuit against 2008 vice president nominee Sarah Palin, will take over as the appeal proceeds.  The pair work for Ballard Spahr and have covered various cases, including companies and individuals in high-stakes civil litigation, speakers in First Amendment cases, journalists, and news organizations. Announcing the news, Heard's spokesperson said in a statement: 'When it comes protecting the fundamental right of Freedom of Speech, we look at the jury's decision - to paraphrase a famous quote - not "as the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning."'  'A different court warrants different representation, particularly as so much new evidence is now coming to light.' Heard, 36, was ordered to pay her ex-husband more than $10 million in damages at...

    By Lauren del Valle and Sonia Moghe | CNN Amber Heard took a first step toward appealing the verdict in the defamation case with her ex husband Johnny Depp. Attorneys for Heard filed a notice of appeal in Virginia on Thursday, telling the court they intend to appeal the jury trial verdict and all the post-trial motions that did not go in favor of their client in the civil case with ex-husband actor Johnny Depp. The court document does not elaborate on Heard’s appellate argument but her attorneys previously indicated she planned to appeal after a jury in June awarded $15 million in damages to Depp and only $2 million to Heard in their respective defamation lawsuits.

Attorneys for Heard petitioned for a new trial, claiming that information on the jury panel list sent to counsel ahead of trial did not appear to match the demographics of one of the jurors, and so compromised Heard's rights to due process.Judge Penney Azcarate said in the court order filed Wednesday that Heard's rights to due process were not affected because no fraud or wrongdoing occurred in the jury selection process."The juror was vetted, sat for the entire jury, deliberated, and reached a verdict.

    Amber Heard had another bad day in court. The Aquaman star has failed in her attempt to overturn the $10 million verdict in the case, with a judge rejecting her requests for a new trial and an investigation into what her team claimed was a misplaced juror. On Wednesday, Judge Penny Azcarte handed down her decision, saying there was no evidence of fraud or wrongdoing. “The juror was vetted, sat for the entire jury, deliberated, and reached a verdict,” wrote the Virginia judge. “The only evidence before this Court is that this juror and all jurors followed their oaths, the Court’s instructions, and orders. This Court is bound by the competent decision of the jury.” Heard’s lawyers had sought a new trial by arguing in a filing last week that the juror identified as No. 15 wasn’t the same individual listed on the jury panel. “Juror Fifteen was vetted by the Court on the record and met the statutory requirements for service,” the judge wrote. “Due Process was guaranteed and provided to all parties in this litigation.

    FAIRFAX, Va.

    Amber Heard's insurance company is refusing to cover part of the $8.3million in damages the actress owes ex-husband Johnny Depp following her defamation trial in May. Heard had a $1 million liability policy with New York Marine and General Insurance Company which she had hoped that might cover at least a portion of the damages bill she needs to settle. The policy covers wrongful conduct of various sorts including defamation but there is a clause which will likely see the insurance company refusing to pay out, reports TMZ. Under California law, the state in which the insurance policy was issued, the company claim to be able to refuse the million dollar payout if Heard was found to have committed 'willful' misconduct.     The New York Marine Company say that in their determination the judge found the defamation committed by Amber to be both 'willful' and 'malicious'. The insurance company now want to see the judge declare that they are not going to be on the line to foot part of Amber's bill based on the policy. Amber Heard's insurance company is refusing...
    Amber Heard's lawyers on Friday demanded a new trial in her $8 million defamation fight with ex-husband Johnny Depp, claiming that the wrong person served on her jury and ruled against her. Heard's team filed the court documents in Virginia 'based on additional discovered facts,' they said. Her lawyers allege that two people with the same last name lived at the home in Virginia where the jury duty summons was sent in April. The summons was intended for a 77-year-old person, but instead the 52-year-old showed up in court and served on the jury. 'It is deeply troubling for an individual not summoned for jury duty nonetheless to appear for jury duty and serve on a jury, especially in a case such as this,' they write.

    (CNN)Attorneys for Amber Heard have asked the court to declare a mistrial and order a new trial in the defamation case with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. In court documents dated July 8 in the circuit court of Fairfax County, Virginia, which supplemented an earlier filing, attorneys for Heard claim the information on the jury panel list sent to counsel ahead of trial appears does not appear to match the demographics of one of the jurors.Juror 15 was apparently born in 1970, but the summons to be a juror was for someone of the same last name born in 1945, the court documents claim. "Juror No. 15 was not the individual summoned for jury duty on April 11, 2022 and therefore was not part of the jury panel and could not have properly served on the jury at this trial," the memorandum reads.

    Amber Heard’s lawyers have asked a judge to throw out the $10.35 million verdict against her in the defamation case filed by ex-husband Johnny Depp, arguing that the verdict was not supported by the evidence and that one of the jurors may not have been properly vetted by the court.

Immediately after the verdict, the judge reduced the compensatory damages to $350,000 under a state cap.

    Johnny Depp will be represented by Camille Vasquez for a second time. The surprise star attorney, who successfully argued Depp’s defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, will return to the courtroom with Depp for a lawsuit brought by Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, a former colleague of the actor. Brooks filed a personal injury lawsuit in 2018, alleging that Depp punched him in the ribs while working on the film set of City of Lies in 2017. Brooks also claims that the Pirates of the Caribbean star asked him to return the punches with one to his face for a payment of $100,000, according to court documents.

    A juror in the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation trial spoke out about the verdict for the first time on Thursday. The anonymous male juror told ABC News that the jury felt Depp “just seemed a little more real in terms of how he responded to questions,” in comparison to Heard. “It didn’t come across as believable,” he said of Heard’s testimony. “It seemed like she was able to flip the switch on her emotions. She would answer one question and she would be crying and two seconds later she would turn ice cold. It didn’t seem natural.” The juror went on to call Heard’s “crying” and “facial expressions,” along with her tendency to stare at the jury, “very uncomfortable.” “Some of us used the expression ‘crocodile tears,'” added the juror, who was one of seven jurors during the trial and the only to have spoken publicly about the case.

The mechanical prop was used in the movie's iconic scene when character Edward used his blades to turn an ice angel into a snow flurry for Kim, played by Winona Ryder. It has gone up for auction after Amber Heard mocked fans for believing Depp actually had blades on his fingers after losing $8million in a defamation trial in which she accused the actor of sexual assault.  During the sit-down interview, which was pre-recorded on Thursday after the actress flew into New York on a private jet from Washington DC, Heard accused the jurors in the trial of being duped by her ex-husband. She branded him as nothing more than a 'fantastic actor' who 'convinced the world he had scissors for fingers', in a bizarre reference to his performance as Edward Scissorhands in Tim Burton's 1990 movie.  The mechanical prop was used in the movie's iconic scene when character Edward used his blades to turn an ice angel...

    Amber Heard defended her testimony and accused Johnny Depp of lying during her first interview since a jury ruled she defamed him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. “Do you stand by your testimony and your accusations against Johnny Depp about abuse?” asked Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie in an exclusive interview that aired in part on Tuesday. Heard defended everything she said on the stand during the nearly two-month trial, saying, “Of course. To my dying day [I] will stand by every word of my testimony.” Despite Heard’s remark, after a nearly two-month trial, a jury determined they found “clear and convincing evidence” that she defamed Depp in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed detailing an allegedly abusive relationship. Guthrie pushed back on Heard’s confidence in her testimony, noting that there is audio of her contradicting claims she made while on the stand. “I am looking at a transcript that says — he says, ‘You start physical fights,’ And you say, ‘I did start a physical fight. I can’t promise you I won’t get physical again,’” Guthrie said, adding, “This is in black and white. I...

    Associated Press NEW YORK — Amber Heard says she doesn’t blame the jury that awarded Johnny Depp more than $10 million after a contentious six-week libel trial in her first post-verdict interview. “I don’t blame them,” Heard told “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie in an interview clip aired Monday on NBC. “I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.” “Today” plans to air more of its interview with Heard on Tuesday and Wednesday. The interview is airing nearly two weeks after the verdict, which also saw Heard awarded $2 million over her claim that one of Depp’s attorneys defamed her. Depp sued Heard for libel in Virginia over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” His lawyers said he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned his name. The verdicts brought an end to a televised trial that Depp hopes will help restore his reputation, though it turned into a spectacle that offered a window into a...
