MAXIM - On the eve of the final court hearing in the case "Depp v. Hurd" took place in Virginia. The court sided with the actor and concluded that the description of domestic violence against his ex-wife, set out in an essay for The Washington Post, was slanderous. Moreover, the judge concluded that the article was written and published with "malicious intent": Heard was well aware that this was a lie.

The actress will have to pay Depp $ 15 million: ten for damages and five punitive damages. Depp was also assigned payments: $ 2 in favor of Hurd for libel against her by lawyers. During the case, the actor's team said that the 2016 incident, when the police came to the couple's home, was an "ambush" organized by Hurd and her friends.

Hurd, in turn, said that the reason for the defeat was the "influence" of her ex-husband: "I am even more disappointed in what this sentence means for other women." (symbol)
