9:51 AM PT — A spokesperson for Amber tells TMZ … “We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment. We are therefore appealing the verdict. While we realize today’s filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice.”
Amber Heard is officially appealing the verdict in her defamation case with Johnny Depp.
Amber’s attorneys filed the necessary documents Thursday in Fairfax County, Virginia to appeal the $10.3 million judgment a jury ordered her last month to pay her ex-husband.
The jury also ruled Johnny had to pay Amber $2 million, so effectively she owes him $8.3 mil in damages — but she had vowed since the day of the verdict that she would appeal.
As we reported, Amber also filed a motion requesting a new trial, because one of the jurors in the case had come to court when it was actually his father who received the jury summons. However, the judge rejected that motion.
Johnny doesn’t seem concerned Amber’s followed through on appealing the verdict. His rep tells TMZ … “The jury listened to the extensive evidence presented during the six-week trial and came to a clear and unanimous verdict that the defendant herself defamed Mr. Depp in multiple instances. We remain confident in our case and that this verdict will stand.”
Daily Mail first reported Amber’s appeal.

JOHNNY DEPP MYSTERY REDHEAD REVEALED …Elle Parle Français!!!
Johnny Depp seemingly had a new female companion in his life, which is true … but there’s nothing romantic about their relationship, TMZ has learned.
Depp, unsurprisingly, made headlines over the weekend when he was spotted in Italy accompanied by the redhead. Johnny was in town for the Umbria Jazz Festival — where he played with Jeff Beck — and fans speculated the woman might be Depp’s new girlfriend.
However, it’s just not the case … we’ve spoken to sources who tell us the woman is working on Depp’s upcoming movie “Jeanne du Barry” as a French teacher.
Makes a lot of sense to bring your teacher on the road if you’re Johnny, and live a lifestyle of constant travel and performance.
The movie will mark Depp’s first in 3 years, he’s playing Louis
