Shortly after the news broke, the 30-year-old actress' lawyer Samantha F. Spector released a statement saying Heard had been "vindicated in the Public Court of Opinion."
However, Spector is now retracting that comment — insisting it was given "without the knowledge or approval" of The Danish Girl star.
"The statement is untrue and we retract it, without qualification. My assertion that Amber Heard has been vindicated in the court of public opinion is not true. We regret the error and apologize to Johnny Depp."
We will keep you updated as this progresses.
