Latest Update: Adam Waldman Comments on Amber Heard that costed Johnny 2 Million Dollars according to the trial verdict. Here is what Adam Waldman commented on Amber Heard.
In Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard’s defamation trial, Depp’s bid to dismiss Heard’s countersuit for $100 million against him was denied on Tuesday, May 24, 2022. The case has entered its sixth and final week, and it’s near its conclusion.
Amber Heard’s $100 million countersuit claims that Depp and his team defamed her publicly via statements and smear campaigns. Specifically, the countersuit named Johnny’s attorney Adam Waldman. Johnny’s suit centers around Amber’s 2018 op-ed article.
Adam Waldman, in his statements, referred to Heard’s allegations of domestic violence and abuse as nothing more than a hoax and an ambush orchestrated by Amber and her team, including friends.
As the trial proceedings began on Tuesday, the legal team of Johnny Depp argued that Amber Heard should sue Mr. Adam Waldman instead of the Pirates of the Caribbean Sea actor. Depp’s associates asked Judge Penney Azcarate to dismiss Heard’s countersuit, but it went in vain.

Judge Azcarate dismissed and rejected Depp’s request to throw out the countersuit of Amber Heard. She said that there was enough evidence to prove that Waldman made those statements on behalf of Depp. Azcarate also added that the jury should hear the case first and then decide.
Heard’s counterclaim cites that the first alleged defamatory statement was made in April 2019. At that time, Adam Waldman accused Amber of committing “defamation, perjury, and filing and receiving a fraudulent temporary restraining order demand with the court”.
Per countersuit, Waldman, in June 2019, told the Blast: “Ms. Heard continues to defraud her abused hoax victim, Mr. Depp, the #metoo movement she masquerades as the leader of, and other real abuse victims worldwide.”
In July 2019, Waldman told the Blast that Heard went to court with painted bruises and obtained a temporary restraining order. He told People that it was all a hoax. The countersuit also mentions Adam Waldman’s statements to Daily Mail in April and June 2020.
In one of his statements, Adam Waldman said that Amber Heard and her team used fake sexual violence allegations as both sword and shield as and when needed. In one article, Adam said that Heard and her friends selectively used sexual violence hoax facts as the sword and inflicted them on the public and Johnny Depp.
In another article, he told the outlet: “Quite simply this was an ambush, a hoax. They set Mr. Depp up by calling the cops, but the first attempt didn’t do the trick. The officers came to the penthouses, thoroughly searched and interviewed, and left after seeing no damage to face or property. So Amber and her friends spilled a little wine and roughed the place up, got their stories straight under the direction of a lawyer and publicist, and then placed a second call to 911.”
The suit of Amber Heard says that Adam Waldman made all of those statements as directed by Johnny Depp and claimed that the actor should be held liable for the same.
Judge Azcarater decided not to dismiss the countersuit after Adam Waldman was called as a witness for Amber Heard’s defense last week.
Waldman made the testimony for about an hour and faced numerous questions. He refused to answer about 75 questions from Amber Heard’s lawyers, citing attorney-client privilege.
