Johnny Depp has won his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard on Wednesday.

The pirates of tye Caribbean actor was awarded $15 million in damages by a Northern Virginian jury who found that Heard defamed him with allegations that he had committed domestic violence.

Depp had originally sued Heard for $50 million after she wrote an essay for The Washington Post in 2018 saying she was a domestic abuse survivor.

Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages in his defamation suit.

This is a developing story.
