A few weeks after the dust settles Johnny Depp Compared amber heard A member of a seven-member jury broke his silence on the verdict in a defamation case and revealed why the actress lost her lawsuit against her ex-husband.
Jurors told Good Morning America that Hurd’s emotional testimony was not “realistic” and admitted it made them “uncomfortable.”
“A lot of her stories don’t add up… The majority of the jury thought she was the aggressor. Crying, her facial expressions, staring at the jury. All of us were uncomfortable,” the jury said, continuing Noting, “She’ll answer a question, she’ll cry, and after two seconds she’ll be freezing.”
Jurors reveal how panel viewed emotional testimony, saying: ‘Some of us used’The tear of crocodile’. “
The male juror, who asked not to be named, quoted a few lines on the news portal and was even detailed by Johnny Depp’s testimony, which was more “credible”.
“A lot of the jury felt that what he said, at the end of the day, was more believable. He seemed more truthful in terms of how he answered questions. His emotional state was very stable throughout,” the jury said.
Interestingly, the jury even admitted that the jury thought “they were abusive to each other,” but it was Amber’s hefty claim that offered no evidence that led her to lose the case and have to pay Depp about $10 million.
“I don’t think it determines whether either of them is right or wrong, but to go up to the level she claims, there isn’t enough evidence to really support what she said,” the jury said.
The interview also raised questions about the role social media also played in influencing the final verdict. Jurors dismissed Hurd’s team’s allegations, saying: “We followed the evidence. Myself and at least two other jurors do not use Twitter or Facebook. Others have made it clear not to talk about it.”
Amber’s divorce settlement not to donate $7 million was also a topic of discussion. Contrary to the actress’ claim that she “promised” the amount, jurors said, “she was in the UK for a talk show. The video shows her sitting there telling the host that she gave all the money. She used the terms in the video clip. The content is “I gave it away”, “I donated it”, “It’s gone. “
In a recent interview, Amber commented on her decision to donate her divorce settlement to a nonprofit. In announcing her plans to deliver on her promise, she said: “I feel like so many trials are about distracting me as a person, my credibility, and calling me a liar as much as you can.”
Judging by the reports, it appears that it wasn’t just netizens who were annoyed by the actress’ defense for donating money to charity after it was proven she didn’t complete the financial transaction.
Earlier, ACLU executives also testified that they had not received the money promised by the actress since 2019 due to some of the “financial difficulties” she faced.
