Looks like you're going to have to sell your mansion and cars, rent a studio apartment and get around by bus and bicycle, like millions of others do. LOL.

If what Heard said is and was true then why not just leave her abuser?

It’s not as though she had to worry about money or children.

Airing any news about people is bound to create contention especially when those people are famous.

She seems very naive…

In other words, they've seen what kind of evidence they would need to fabricate to sway the verdict.

She had the chance to tell the truth, the whole truth, but was unable to provide zero medical records, no documented physical damage and contradicted every witness testimony.

There's no way she suddenly comes up with definitive proof of her stories. Elaine is just looking for an extended pay day. because like Amber, her career and image is in tatters.

I'm very pleased with the jury's decisions. They were fair & just, and didn't "take sides", that's clearly seen. I wish Depp the best. My only concern is, what damage has Heard done to women who truly are victims of DV.  A lying tongue does great damage.

Bredehoft said Depp's legal team worked to "demonize" Heard and suppressed crucial evidence in the trial, preventing the jurors from examining evidence of Depp's alleged abuse.

Hard to demonize a demon.

Big difference between can’t pay and won’t pay.

She can just ‘pledge’ the money to Depp, and then claim that ‘pledge’ and ‘pay’ mean the same thing, as she did during the trial in reference to the millions she falsely claimed to have donated to charity.

She thought marrying a rich man was going to be her lottery ticket after divorcing him.

her attorney Elaine Bredehoft said: "Oh no, absolutely not."

Have Heard walk the plank and keel haul her solicitors until she gives up every pee.

She should be able to cover at least the first seven million. I mean, she hasn't done anything else with it, right?

better start a website.

Heard from a friend she still has 7m parked for charity, plus the 2M award, she only needs 1M and change more.

Anyway as always lawyers both sides are the big winners

It looks like she lied a lot and was taking advantage of the #metoo movement to carry her to victory and a big financial settlement. Women lie just as much as men do.

And yet, she still believes she can say whatever she wants. She still fails to realize that while you do have the freedom to run your mouth, there are consequences for doing so when it's for the purpose of unjustly trying to destroy an individual's life.

WaPo inviting an opinion piece from Heard should also fork out compensation for abysmal journalism. Heard should sue them to recoup any loss. Or develop and market a linen soiling detergent. "Heardblaster 2000" could be a starter.

The tapes where she admits to being unable to stop being violent to him did her in. (Along with a lot of lies.) Imagine if there were tapes of any man saying such a thing.

Dont feel one bit sorry for her she did all this to herself!

Hope she is made to liquidate assets & come up with a payment plan or is jailed for non-compliance, just like courts have done to men for decades, she needs to be accountable.

But she will likely coast on a lot of this, time will tell
