Attorneys Benjamin Chew and Camille Vasquez appeared on The Today Show on June 8 and discussed the jury’s verdict in the high-profile trial.
When asked why they believe the jurors didn’t believe Heard’s allegations, Chew responded, claiming: “My sense is that it had to do a lot with accountability.

“Johnny owned his issues. He was very candid about his alcohol and drug issues. He was candid about some unfortunate texts that he wrote.
“I think it was [a] sharp contrast to Ms Heard, who didn’t seem, or at least the jury may have perceived that she didn’t take accountability for anything.”
When recalling the moment the verdict was announced, Vasquez said: “I was speaking with a mutual friend of Johnny and ours and he said, ‘I haven’t seen Johnny smile like that in six years’.
“The weight of the world is off of his shoulders. He’s got his life back.”
Earlier this week, the Pirates of the Caribbean star made his TikTok debut and told his fans he’s ‘moving forward’.
Addressing his followers, the 58-year-old said: “To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared.”
After sharing this post, a representative of his ex-wife told E! News: “As Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving forward,’ women’s rights are moving backwards.
“The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is… be afraid to stand up and speak out.”
