Juror in Johnny Depp’s libel trial says jury didn’t believe Amber Heard’s ‘crocodile tears’ – NEWSLY

Posted on

A jury member in the contentious trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard spoke out about the bombshell verdict, saying in a new interview that the jurors had not interpreted the actress’s testimony as truthful.

“The crying, the facial expressions she had, the staring at the jury—we were all very uncomfortable…” the juror told ABC News in a segment aired on Good Morning America on Thursday. “She was answering one question and she was crying and two seconds later the ice would be cold… Some of us used the expression ‘crocodile tears.’”

ABC did not reveal the juror’s new name, instead specifying him only as “one of five men on the jury.” Two of the seven jurors were women.

According to an unnamed juror, jurors felt that much of Heard’s story was unhelpful, and the majority of members felt that she was the abuser.

The juror said, “A lot of the jurors felt that what he was saying, in the end, was more believable…”. “He seemed more realistic in terms of the way he was responding to questions. His emotional state had been very stable throughout…”

The juror went on to say that he and his fellow jurors “followed the evidence” when it came to adjudicating their verdict, denying Heard and her lawyer’s allegations that the group was influenced by social media.

“At the end of the day, what I think is true is that they were abusive to each other,” the juror said. “I don’t think that makes either of them right or wrong. But to live up to what she was claiming, there wasn’t enough or any evidence to really support what she was saying.”

According to the unnamed man, there was another smoking gun — revelations that Heard did not donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity as she pledged previously.

“She goes on a talk show in the UK. The video shows her sitting there telling the host that she gave all that money away, and the terminology she used in that video was, ‘I donated it,'” the juror said, “It’s gone, but the truth is she didn’t She gives up much of it at all,” summing up the situation as Heard’s “complete failure.”

In another insight from the Fairfax, Virginia courtroom where the trial took place, a court stenographer who covered the trial said some jurors struggled to stay awake during the entire six-week trial.

In an excerpt from an interview with Law & Crime Network, Judy Bellinger — who worked as a court reporter and was called a “rock star” by Judge Penny Azcarette — said “a few” of the jurors slept on points during the trial. The judge previously ruled to seal the jurors’ names for at least a year.

“There were a few jurors falling asleep,” Bellinger said, adding that the sleeping jurors were in the front and back rows. “And it was hard. There was a lot of video recordings, and they were sitting there and all of a sudden I saw their heads fall off.”

Only on Wednesday, Heard talked about the $7 million settlement, explaining to Savannah Guthrie in her exclusive partially broadcast NBC News interview. today That she “made a vow, and that vow is made over time by nature.”

When asked if she had yet to donate money which raised questions about her credibility, Heard said, “I don’t know, because I feel that much of the trial was meant to shed light on who I am as a human being, and my credibility, called me a liar in every possible way.”

In another preview clip of the interview that aired on Monday, the star said she didn’t “blame” the jury for making their decision.

“They sat in those benches and heard over three weeks of relentless testimony from salaried employees, and towards the end of the trial, Randos — as I said,” Heard said.

When Guthrie asked the actress to confirm she didn’t blame the jury, the star said, “I don’t blame them, I already understand. He’s a likable character and people feel like they know him. He’s a great actor.”

But, as the host reminded her guest that “the job of the jury is not to be dazzled… and to consider facts and evidence,” Heard replied, “Again, how could they, after hearing three and a half weeks of testimony about how unreliable I was, [and] I can’t believe a word came out of my mouth.

The verdict was delivered in the Depp-Heard case on June 1. Depp received $15 million in jury damages, although Heard would have to pay only $10.35 million due to a Virginia law limiting punitive damages (the judge reduced the amount). In the counterclaim, Heard won one of three defamation charges, receiving $2 million in damages.

After the sentencing, Depp said in a statement that “the jury gave me my life back.”

Meanwhile, Heard denounced the decision as a “setback” for women. She told Guthrie that the issue was “the most humiliating and horrible thing I’ve ever been through”, saying, “I’ve never felt more dehumanized. I felt less than human.”

Her attorney, Eileen Breedhoft, recently said that her client intends to appeal the ruling.
