People are still screaming to get some of the action from the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial.
Bracelets from the Fairfax County, Virginia court auctioned off by bootleggers at the height of the defamation trial are now being auctioned off online for big bucks.
Sellers on eBay bid publicly and buy their access bands out of the box for three- and four-digit price tags.
An orange strap retails for $500 while a blue one sells for nearly $5,000.
The description for the orange bracelet reads: “This is a bracelet that was used to attend one of the final days of the trial of Johnny Depp on Thursday May 26, 2022. It’s number 77 after number 77 in line to enter the courtroom. This bracelet is priceless in that the process is part of pop culture history. I am ready to negotiate.”
The blue badge is from May 23rd and is from the first day of the last week of testing and according to the product overview from “one of the busiest days”. “I was there and you are quoting this from a verified first-person source,” it continued.
It granted the wearer unrestricted access to the courtroom and “is a piece of celebrity cultural history.” The wristbands are not fancy or specially made, they are the typical paper wristbands you see at events.”
Heard, 36, and Depp, 58, were embroiled in a controversial libel lawsuit in which the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor sued the “Stepfather” actress over allegations of abuse in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she authored , sued for $50 million. Heard sued her ex for $100 million.
A verdict was returned on June 1, in which the jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Virginia law states that punitive damages must be capped at $350,000, meaning Depp will actually receive a maximum total of $10.35 million. Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages and no punitive damages.
In the days after the multimillion-dollar judgment, it was reported that Heard was “broke” and unable to pay the high judgment due to rising legal costs and allegedly lavish spending.
After the conclusion was read, Heard released a statement to The Post, saying she was “disappointed at what this ruling means for other women.”
“I am sad that I lost this case. But I’m even sadder that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly,” Heard added.
A “humble” dork noted in his official statement that he was “overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and the colossal support and kindness from around the world.”
He continued: “False, very serious and criminal allegations were leveled against me through the media, sparking an endless flood of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. It had already traveled around the world twice in a nanosecond and had a seismic impact on my life and career.”
Die-hard #JusitcForJohnny Depp fans revealed last month how far they went to be a part of the process in any way. They said they camped in their cars outside the courthouse and even spent up to $30,000 in travel expenses to wait for entry.
