Amber Heard has reportedly filed for bankruptcy after failing to pay Johnny Depp the defamation trial settlement handed to her by the court of Virginia.
For those unversed, Amber’s legal team addressed the Aquaman star's financial constraints previously and voiced concerns about her ability to pay back her ex-husband the $10 million settlement.
But she also made another legal splash before finally calling it quits it seems. The appeal for a retrial ‘fell like a lead balloon' in the eyes of the public, especially since the actor claimed, “We believe the court made errors that prevented a fair and First Amendment-compliant verdict. Therefore, we are appealing the verdict.”
According to Marca, Amber filed for bankruptcy before July 21st and issued an appeal with the court about the state of her finances and bowed out from the settlement payment.
In the petition, she seeks nullity of the entire judgment because of her lack of sufficient funds.
