Did Amber Heard Say She Still ‘Loves’ Johnny Depp Because She Fears Another Lawsuit’s Coming?

Amber Heard recently gave an exclusive NBC interview less than two weeks after the very public defamation case between her and ex-husband Johnny Depp concluded. The jury unanimously found Heard guilty of defaming Depp in the op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post after their divorce, claiming to be a domestic abuse survivor. The first part of the interview with Savannah Guthrie comprised Heard blaming the unfair social media representation that vilified her and Johnny Depp’s beloved character for the jury’s verdict, and claiming that she’ll stand by her testimony till the day she dies.

Amber Heard worried she might face another lawsuit

The second part of the interview was released Wednesday morning. The latest instalment shows Heard looking ahead at what’s next while retrospecting on the comments that she made during the proceedings.

At the beginning of the concluding part of the interview, Guthrie asked Heard about a text from Depp he had promised “total global humiliation” and whether she felt that had occurred.

“I know he promised it, I testified to this… I’m not a good victim, I get it. I’m not a likeable victim. I’m not a perfect victim. But when I testified, I asked the jury to just see me as human and hear his own words which is a promise to do this. It feels as though he has.”

Guthrie followed up by asking whether Heard had further worries about being sued in a similar manner again. Heard replied in the affirmative.

“I’m scared that no matter what I do, no matter what I say or how I say it, every step that I take will present another opportunity [for] this sort of silencing which is what I guess a defamation lawsuit is meant to do… It’s meant to take your voice.”
