The sale comes after Depp won a high-profile defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard last month.

Last week, Heard filed an appeal to appeal the verdict, in which a seven-person jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages (capped at $350,000) for a 2018 comment in which she identified herself as “a public figure representing domestic violence.”

The three-time Oscar nominee claimed her article ruined his career and led to a string of canceled film projects, including a sixth Pirates of the Caribbean special feature.

We believe the court made mistakes that prevented a just and fair trial consistent with the First Amendment,” a Heard spokesman said toronto sun. “We are therefore appealing the verdict. While we recognize that today’s filing will ignite the Twitter fires, there are steps we must take to ensure both fairness and justice.”

In response, Depp’s legal team filed his own appeal after testimony from his former attorney, Adam Waldman, found him guilty of one count of defamation.

“Mr. Depp eventually filed his own appeal so the court could have the full records. And — she insists on pursuing this matter and we must protect our client’s interests,” Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, said in an interview with Gayle King on CBS morning.

“To protect his interests, we as his representative must respond to the appeal with his own appeal.”
