Johnny’s Lawyers Say He’s ‘Over The Moon’ After Huge Win – He ‘Hasn’t Smiled Like This For Six Years’

Johnny Depp’s lawyers have been making several appearances on talk shows to chat about the trial and address Amber Heard’s fans’ accusations that the trial was unfair.

On Today Show and Good Morning America, Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew shared how Depp has been feeling relief like he’s never had in the past six years.

The two refuted any claim and accusation that it was not a fair trial and Chew said, “My sense is that it had a lot to do 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, and 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.”

Chew added, “She had an answer for everything, and she wasn’t taking accountability for anything. I think that made a difference.”

Vasquez added, “The key to victory was focusing on the facts and the evidence and Johnny’s opportunity to speak the truth for the first time. He was able to connect with the jury and the general public and tell what really happened.”

Heard’s team vehemently refused to accept the jury’s verdict and slammed Depp’s “victory lap” and that the jury was influenced by social media. Depp’s team replied, “It’s disappointing. We’re only speaking about what happened in this case and the facts, in this case, were overwhelmingly positive for Johnny.”

“I mean frankly… we’re here to talk about the case that we tried,” Vasquez told Savannah Guthrie on Today Show.

“We encourage all victims to come forward and have their day in court, which is exactly what happened in this case. Domestic violence doesn’t have a gender.”

Addressing Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft’s claim that social media affected the jury, Chew said, “My view is that social media played no role whatsoever this was a decision made by the jury on the evidence. It was overwhelmingly in Depp’s favor.”

Vasquez added, “I was speaking with another friend of ours, a mutual friend of Johnny’s and ours, and he said, ‘I haven’t seen Johnny smile like that in six years.’”

When asked about whether they would waive the fee, the attorneys emphasized that it was always about his reputation, not the money. They added, “This was never about money for Mr. Depp. This was about restoring his reputation, and he’s done that.”

“We have to be careful what we say, but this was about Mr. Depp’s reputation, but that was what it was about for him.”

Depp, who found his reputation restored, has shared a montage on TikTok to thank his supporters.

He wrote on his first-ever TikTok post, “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.

“And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers, and once again, I am whittled down to no way to say thank you other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD.”
