According to Marca, the Aquaman actress had reportedly requested a meeting with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor to renegotiate the debt, he was awarded by the court. The meeting took place in private and where Heard particularly asked for a reduction in the 10 million and 350 thousand dollars that the court offered to the 59-year-old actor.

It looks like they didn’t get to reach an agreement which is why Heard has asked her lawyers to speed up the process of appealing the trial. According to the reports, Heard’s lawyers submitted a 43-page motion last week that the verdict was not delivered by the evidence, claiming that Depp was awarded “excessive” damages for the defamation lawsuit.

Though, this secret meeting of Heard is now being discussed online on the Internet with her being criticized on the social media platform. Check out the tweets below.

Though the article did not mention Johnny Depp by his name, Depp claimed that it hurt his reputation and damaged his career. He sued Heard for defamation and won the lawsuit with $10.35 million compensation for the damage while Heard was awarded $2 million.

Though, during an interview with NBC’s Today show, Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft was asked if the Aquaman actress would be able to pay the award, to which she replied, “Oh no, absolutely not.”
