Amber Heard’s ‘TV interview could allegedly result in another defamation case,’ as she doubled down on her claims of abuse against ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The actress repeated her allegations against Depp when she appeared on NBC News’ Today, as she claimed that he was ‘physically abusive to her’.
After watching the interview, New York-based lawyer Nicole Haff, who works at Romano Law, reportedly told the Daily Mail it could ‘give rise to more proceedings’ for the Aquaman star.

She apparently told the publication: “Yes. This interview could count as a new ‘publication’ under the law, which could spur a third lawsuit.”
When being interviewed by host Savannah Guthrie, the 36-year-old was asked how she felt about Depp’s promise to ‘globally humiliate her’.
She responded: “I know he promised it. I testified to this. I am not a good victim, I get it. I am not a likeable victim. I am not a perfect victim. But when I testified I asked the jury to see me as human and here, his own words, which is a promise to do this, it seems as though he has.”
The actress went on to discuss the future and acknowledged whether she was ‘nervous’ to speak out again.
She claimed: “Of course. I took for granted what I assumed was my right to speak.”
Heard was also explicitly questioned on whether she was concerned about being sued for defamation again, alleging: “I am scared that, no matter what I do, no matter what I say or how I say it, every step that I take will present another opportunity for silencing, which I guess is what a defamation lawsuit is meant to do – it is meant to take your voice.”
