Amber Heard is now officially on the hook for $8.35 million, and she could be on the hook for even more if she appeals the defamation verdict, TMZ reported.
A jury awarded Johnny Depp the $8.35M after an explosive trial. The judge Friday officially entered the judgment into the court record, and there's a string attached if Amber decides to go forward with an appeal.
The judge said if Amber appeals, she must post a bond in the full amount of Johnny's judgment PLUS 6%--that's an additional $621 thousand. Presumably, the 6% is an interest penalty for a delay in collection.
As for Amber, her representative released a statement invoking the January 6 House hearings, stating ... she will indeed appeal, saying, "As stated in yesterday's congressional hearings, you don't ask for a pardon if you are innocent. And, you don't decline to appeal if you know you are right."
