“The Truth Is Forever On Your Side”: Amber Heard’s Sister Breaks Her Silence After Trial Defeat

“Yesterday, today and tomorrow I will always be proud of you.”

Whitney Heard was one of the witnesses at the just-concluded defamation trial, which saw Johnny Depp awarded $15million in compensatory and punitive damages. Her sister, Amber, was found by a jury in Fairfax, Virginia, to have defamed the actor through an article she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse.

Airing her opinion following the verdict, the 34-Year-Old with nearly 30K Instagram followers has insisted: “I still stand with you, sissy. The truth is forever on your side.”

In a lengthy post, Whitney added: “Yesterday, today, and tomorrow I will always be proud of you for standing up for yourself, for testifying both here in Virginia and in the UK, and for being the voice of so many who can’t speak to the things that happen behind closed doors. ‘We knew that this was going to be an uphill battle and that the cards were stacked against us. But you stood up and spoke out regardless.”

She then insisted she felt honored to have been able to testify during the trial on behalf of her sibling and said she’s sorry the jury didn’t find it in her favor.

Whitney concluded: “I am so honored to testify for you, and I would do it a million times over because I know what I saw and because the truth is forever on your side. I’m so sorry that it wasn’t reflected in the decision made by this jury, but I will never give up on you, and neither will anyone who stands with you. Forever by your side… #istandwithamberheard.”

Heard wrote: “’The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.”

“I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously. I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly.”

On the other hand, Depp has been celebrating his WIN in England as he spent $62K on a curry dinner with friends at Varanasi restaurant in Birmingham, England.
