Amber Heard Not Donating $7M Divorce Settlement Was A ‘Fiasco’ Says Johnny Depp Trial Juror


A juror in the Johnny Depp defamation trial against Amber Heard has claimed that Ms. Heard not donating her $7 million divorce settlement was a “fiasco”.

They went on to suggest that it might have been the reason why the jury turned against Ms. Heard.

During the trial, Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez, told Amber, “You still haven’t donated the $7 million divorce settlement to charity.”

This was when Amber Heard started trying to claim that “pledge” and “donate” meant the same thing.

“Incorrect,” answered Ms. Heard. “I pledged the entirety… I use ‘pledge’ and ‘donate’ synonymous with one another.”

The juror, who wished to remain anonymous, claimed that this whole interchange between Ms. Heard and Camille Vasquez was a “fiasco”.

“She goes on a talk show in the UK, ” the anonymous male juror said, according to ABC News.

The juror continued: “The video shows her sitting there telling the host she gave all that money away.”

“And the terms she used in that video clip were ‘I gave it away’, ‘I donated it’, ‘it’s gone’,” the juror added.

“She didn’t give much of it away at all,” the juror said.

However, the juror didn’t stop there.

He also spoke of Amber Heard’s facial expressions and how she constantly looked at the jury directly.

He said that Ms. Heard’s “crying, the facial expressions that she had, the staring at the jury [made] all of us very uncomfortable (…) she would answer one question and she would be crying and two seconds later she would turn ice cold (…) some of us used the expression ‘crocodile tears’.”

He continued: “A lot of Amber’s story didn’t add up. The majority of the jury felt she was more the aggressor.”

The juror then went on to add that Johnny Depp was “more believable” and “real” when he was testifying on the stand.

“A lot of the jury felt what he was saying, at the end of the day, was more believable (…) he just seemed a little more real in terms of how he was responding to the questions,” the juror said.

He then finished by saying: “His emotional state was very stable throughout.”
