Amber Heard has agreed to pay Johnny Depp $1 million to settle his defamation claim against her – a deal that “enshrines his win” and is a “smart PR move” for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, experts told Fox News Digital.

“It’s resignation,” civil and criminal attorney Tim Parlatore said of Heard’s decision to drop her appeal. “This enshrines his win. She’s solidifying his victory.”

A blockbuster six-week defamation trial in June ended in defeat for Heard.

A Virginia jury awarded Depp $15 million after finding that his ex-wife had defamed him by casting herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 op-ed. Judge Penney Azcarate reduced the judgment to $10.35 million.
