This is the first week — in about 6 — that we haven’t all been glued to our screens, listening to and watching the Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard trial.

I’m gonna be really honest. I feel like there’s a hole in my soul. Like, I feel as if I should be doing something right now. But, it’s just the detox that’s happening after the trial of the century — as I’m now calling it.

In case you have been living under a damn rock, Johnny Depp was suing Amber Heard for defamation that stemmed from an op-ed piece she wrote for The Washington Post back in 2018.

The world was divided as the pair each had their turn on the witness stand.

Oh, we weren’t divided here: #justiceforjohnnydepp.

When the jury came back with their verdict, everyone collectively held their breath.

Johnny ended up prevailing — mostly. He was found to have defamed Amber in one of three instances.

Hopefully things will start looking up in the world of Captain Jack Sparrow — which he will always be to me.

Now, the whole reason Johnny ended up suing Amber was because of the op-ed piece she wrote that alluded to the fact that Johnny Depp was abusive during their marriage.

As a result of the verdict, The Washington Post has made a modification to the online op-ed piece that you can still read online.

On June 2, an Editor’s Note was added to the beginning of Amber’s opinion piece.

The editor basically laid out the fact that Johnny Depp won the lawsuit.

After the editor discusses Amber’s charges, they go on to tell the world that Johnny Depp was found guilty of defaming Amber on one count.

p.s. The one thing that Johnny was found guilty of, his lawyer actually wrote. BUT, since he represented Johnny, the guilty verdict on the one count stands.

Editor’s note, June 2, 2022: In 2019, Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for defamation arising out of this 2018 op-ed. On June 1, 2022, following a trial in Fairfax County, Va. Circuit Court, a jury found Heard liable on three counts for the following statements, which Depp claimed were false and defamatory: (1) “I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change.” (2) “Then two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.” (3) “I had the rare vantage point of seeing, in real time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse.” The jury separately found that Depp, through his lawyer Adam Waldman, defamed Heard in one of three counts in her countersuit.

This Editor’s Note is only one of a few bad things that are happening to Amber as a result of the jury’s decision.

It has also been said that Amber is “too broke” to pay the giant $10.3-ish million she owes Johnny.

If she can’t pay the money, Johnny could go after her house to help cover the debt.

Depp could still potentially claim the money he was awarded by garnishing his ex-wife’s wages from her two upcoming movies, levy her assets or even seize her house in California’s Yucca Valley.

Now, time will only tell what happens in the drama that is the life of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

I’m sure there’s going to be an appeal, and then who knows what else will come up.

In the meantime, let’s get Johnny Depp back into the U.S. film business!! He’s too good an actor to be blacklisted like that.

I’m still hoping that he shows up in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice sequel!
