Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Long Legal Battle has been making headlines for yearsbut certainly heated when the two met for the defamation lawsuit in Virginia† In the end, the pirates of the caribbean actor was the victor, and his ex-wife had to pay him 10 million dollars. And there may be more bad news for Amber Heard as the actress is reportedly still under investigation over a previous incident.
In 2015, Amber Heard ran into trouble with Australian authorities for illegally bringing her Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo, which she owned with Johnny Depp, into the country without reporting them. She initially pleaded guilty and the case was closed, but according to… The daily mail that case might come back to bite her.
While Amber Heard may have yet to figure out how to pay Johnny Depp those millions of dollars, things are reportedly heating up with her legal troubles in Australia as well. Namely because the powers are allegedly investigating Heard for perjury. In particular, she lied to Australian authorities about how she brought the dogs into the country.
In the worst case scenario, Amber Heard could face up to 14 years in prison in Australia. Of course, there are a number of circumstances that can prevent this. First, the actress could just leave the country, assuming the authorities will not extradite her. We’ll just have to see how the drama develops and if Heard actually ends up in another extended legal battle.
According to the report, the 2015 incident came back into focus for people Down Under thanks to Johnny Depp’s Libel in 2020 against the sun. Depp’s former estate manager Kevin Murphy reportedly told the court that he was asked by Amber Heard to lie under oath about the dogs in Australia.

As mentioned before, Johnny Depp was the clear winner when the Jury verdict in their defamation trial was finally revealed† Amber Heard was found guilty of three charges of defamation and had to pay her ex-husband about $10 million.

Given Amber Heard’s financial situation and her potential troubles Down Under, Smart Money says she wants to try and find more acting jobs ASAP. But this might be easier said than done thanks to just how viral her testimony went† While she is set to appear in the Aquarius sequel, Heard currently has no other movies in line.
