JOE PERRY On JOHNNY DEPP Verdict: 'We Always Knew The Truth'




Legendary hard rock vocalist   Joe Lynn Turner   ( RAINBOW ,   DEEP PURPLE ,   Yngwie Malmsteen ) has weighed in on actor   Johnny Depp 's highly publicized defamation trial against his ex-wife   Amber Heard .

Earlier today (Wednesday, June 1),a jury in Fairfax, Virginia awarded   Depp   $15 million in damages against   Heard   over the 2018 op-ed she wrote for   The Washington Post   that claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse. The five-man, two-woman civil jury later added $2 million in damages to   Heard   in her counterclaim.   Depp   has denied any physical or sexual abuse and says   Heard   concocted the claims to destroy his reputation.

Another musician who weighed in on the verdict is   AEROSMITH 's   Joe Perry , a bandmate of   Depp 's in the   HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES . He wrote on   Instagram : "Proud and happy for   Johnny s huge win today. We never doubted anything, we always knew the truth, and that the truth would prevail… Congratulations on getting your life back today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"




Depp , 58, sued   Heard , 36, for $50 million, alleging she defamed him in   The Washington Post   column in which she described herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse." His lawyers said he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned his name.

Heard   filed a $100 million counterclaim against   Depp   for statements made by his former lawyer   Adam Waldman , who accused   Heard   of staging an "abuse hoax" in the   Daily Mail . The jury found   Heard   proved defamation on one of the counts her legal team brought in its counterclaim.
