Actress Amber Heard announced Monday that she has reached an agreement to end the appeal process of the defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp in the United States, agreeing to pay one million dollars to her ex-husband.
 
“After much thought I have made the difficult decision to make a deal,” the star wrote on Instagram, without specifying the financial terms.
 
The 36-year-old actress had initially appealed the verdict handed down in June ordering her to pay $10 million to the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who for her part had to pay back $2 million to Heard. 
 
“I made this decision after losing faith in the U.S. court system, in which my public testimony served as entertainment and gave fodder to social networks,” the actress added.
 
Lawyers for Johnny Depp, 59, welcomed the settlement on Monday.
 
We are pleased to officially close this painful chapter for Mr. Depp, who has made it clear throughout this process that his priority is to get to the truth,” said attorneys Benjamin Chew and Camille Vasquez.
 
“The jury’s unanimous decision and resulting judgment in favor of Mr. Depp against Ms. Heard remain in full force,” they reiterated.
 
“The payment of $1 million – which Mr. Depp pledges to donate to charity, which he will in fact do – demonstrates that Ms. Heard recognizes the findings” of the court, they added.
 
The legal battle between the former spouses stems from an op-ed published by the Washington Post in 2018, in which Amber Heard described herself as “a public figure representing domestic violence,” without naming her ex-husband.
 
Asserting that this text had destroyed his reputation and his career, Johnny Depp, 59, had sued for defamation his ex-wife to obtain 50 million dollars in damages. Amber Heard had counterattacked and asked for the double.
 
At the end of six weeks of debates, the jurors of the court of Fairfax, in the suburbs of Washington, had concluded that the ex-spouses had mutually defamed, but had estimated that the damages suffered by Johnny Depp were superior.
 
The trial, ultra-mediatized and broadcast live on television, was followed by millions of viewers around the world and caused an outburst of hostile messages to the actress on social networks.

The 77-year-old Jamaican, bassist with Bob Marley & The Wailers, passed away on Saturday.Bob Marley & The Wailers bassist Aston “Familyman” Barrett has died after a “long battle” with illness.
 
Jamaica’s Minister of Culture, Olivia Grande, said on X (ex-Twitter) that he had died at the University of Miami Hospital in Florida, the same city where Bob Marley died in 1981.
 
Born on November 22, 1946 in Kingston, Jamaica, Aston Barrett was “a pioneer, a mentor and above all a true family man”, write the Wailers on Facebook. His nickname “Familyman” came from the fact that he was said to have several dozen children.
 
“The world has lost not only an iconic musician and the backbone of the Wailers, but also a remarkable human being whose legacy is as immense as his talent,” the reggae group hailed on the social network. “Aston’s music brought joy to millions (of people) and his influence on reggae is beyond measure. He was a man of few words, but his lyrics were full of wisdom, kindness and love. His bass lines were not only the foundation of the Wailers’ music, but also the beat of a genre that touched hearts across the globe ».
  
The Wailers asked that their privacy and that of Familyman’s family be respected.
 
In 2006, Aston Barrett sued Island Records, claiming £60 million in unpaid royalties. However, he lost the case. He put an end to his musical career in 2019.
