Amber Heard’s lawyer has revealed what the actress said after a jury sided with Johnny Depp in his defamation trial against her. 

Elaine Bredehoft appeared on The Today Show and discussed the verdict, which resulted in the star being told she would have to pay her ex-husband $10million in damages.

The lawyer was asked: “How is Amber doing? We saw her hearing that verdict. How did she handle it?”

In response, Bredehoft said: “One of the first things she said is, ‘I am so sorry to all those women out there. This is a setback for all women in and outside the courtroom’.

“She feels the burden of that.”

The lawyer went on to add that she ‘couldn’t believe the verdict,’ and was concerned about the implications further down the line.

She explained: “It’s a significant setback because that’s exactly what it means. Unless you pull out your phone and you video your spouse or your significant other beating you, effectively you won’t be believed.

“Really what happened here is it’s a tale of two trials. Johnny Depp brought a suit in the UK for the same case.

“The burden of proof was easier for him there, The Sun had to actually prove that it was true. And the court found there – and we weren’t allowed to tell the jury this – but the court found that Mr Depp had committed at least 12 acts of domestic violence, including sexual violence against Amber.

“So what did Depp’s team learn from this? Demonise Amber and suppress the evidence.”

Bredehoft also claimed that there had been an ‘enormous amount of evidence that was suppressed’.
