WATCH Depp Celebrates His Victory While Heard Plots Her Next Move

It's been more than a week since the verdict was announced in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation case.

And Depp's multi-million dollar award over Heard remains a point of contention.

Nevertheless, Depp and his thousands of supporters are celebrating the win.

The actor is currently in the UK, where he enjoyed an $87k celebratory dinner with friends Sunday night. Depp also made his premiere on TikTok over the weekend. Alongside a video montage of his recent performances with rock legend Jeff Beck, Johnny posted a lengthy caption thanking his fans for their support during the trial.

"To all of my most treasured, loyal, and unwavering supporters. We've been everywhere together, we have seen everything together," Depp wrote. "We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared."

"And now, we will all move forward together," he continued. "You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD."

Reps for Heard slammed Depp's remarks in a statement and described his win as a setback for women and domestic violence survivors around the globe.

"As Johnny Depp says he's 'moving forward,' women's rights are moving backward," the statement reads.

"The verdict's message to victims of domestic violence is ... be afraid to stand up and speak out."

Heard's comments are echoed by Ruth Glenn of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), who is a survivor of abuse.

The organization came out in support of Heard after the verdict was announced, and Glenn said that they've been receiving a great deal of pushback ever since.

“I’ve been doing this work for 30 years, and we’ve had some high-profile cases,” Glenn said.

“But I have never seen anything like this.”

Glenn says Depp’s support has less to do with the facts of the case and more to do with “his longevity in the celebrity world [and] his ability to have the resources to deploy PR machines… he’s been able to control the narrative and this trial.”

Heard is expected to appeal the verdict, which could mean that this matter will be re-litigated sometime very soon.

Depp's victory in the court of public opinion might not be as complete as it initially seemed.

The actor still has the majority of the support on social media, but the NCADV and several high-profile celebrities remain true in their support of Heard.

Depp has not responded to Heard's latest statement or the comments from the NCADV, and likely won’t.

But Heard has indicated that she won't be dropping the matter anytime soon.

So while the celebrity trial of the century has come to an end, it seems as though the battle is not over yet.
