Following Judge Nichol’s decision, Depp was asked to exit his role as Grindelwald in the filmFantastic Beasts. While he’s no longer starring in the Warner Bros. film,The Hollywood Reporterwrote at the time that Depp will stillreceive the full salary for the project. "We obviously can’t disclose any attorney-client communications, but as Mr. Depp testified and as we both made clear in our respective closings, this was never about money for Mr. Depp," Chew responded. "This was about restoring his reputation, and he’s done that." Six days later, Depp’s lawyers Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew appeared on Good Morning America, where Chew told George Stephanopoulos that his client was only interested in "restoring his reputation" during the trial. Depp, meanwhile, was found to have defamed his ex-wife on one of three claims in her countersuit.

Depp’s lawsuit, filed in 2019, accuses Heard of ruining his reputation and career by saying in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed article that she had been the victim of domestic violence. Heard has denied Depp’s defamation allegations and filed a $100 million counterclaim, saying he physically assaulted her before and during their marriage. According to The Independent, Amber gave the ACLU half of the promised $3.5 million she was supposed to give which comes out to $1.75 million. According to People, she was recognized for donating more than $1 million to the children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, but she certainly didn’t donate the entire $3.5 million the hospital was promised either.

"You all have said the goal is not to impoverish Ms. Heard. Is it possible we could see a settlement where she forgoes the appeal, in return for Mr. Depp waiving any monetary damages?" asked Stephanopoulos, 61. Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft spoke with Guthrie on the June 2 episode of the Today show and, when asked whether her client would be able to pay the amount, said, "Oh, no, absolutely not." In the same conversation, Bredehoft added that Heard "absolutely" plans to appeal the verdict. She added that she still plans to honor the pledge, according to Guthrie in Wednesday’s aired segment.

The couple met on the set of “The Rum Diary" in 2011. Their ugly split was surrounded by claims that Depp physically and verbally abused Heard. Depp was accused of throwing a cellphone at Heard during a drunken attack.
