The defamation trial between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard came to an end Wednesday when a Virginia jury ruled in favor of Depp. While the trial has ended, the fight over paying for monetary damages has only started.

Heard's trial lawyer Elaine Bredehoft appeared Thursday on NBC's "Today" and spoke about the evidence that was suppressed in the trial and the plan to appeal. The questions later turned toward whether Heard is able to pay the $10.35 million judgment.

“Oh no, absolutely not,” Bredehoft told host Savannah Guthrie.

Heard's expected appeal could reduce the payment she owes Depp. According to Kentucky-based attorney Sandra Spurgeon of Spurgeon Law Group, Heard may be forced to post a bond, as well as interest on the awarded judgment, for the appeal to move forward.

"For an individual who doesn't have the ability to pay the judgment and no ability to post the bond, then there is a real issue if the winning party intends to execute the judgment," Spurgeon told CBS MoneyWatch.

Since Heard doesn't have the money to pay the judgment, she would likely have her current and future wages garnished and have to file for bankruptcy. Certain assets, such as a retirement fund, would be protected.

Heard, 36, had a role in the 2018 blockbuster superhero film "Aquaman."

In 2016, Heard and Depp reached a divorce settlement for $7 million. Heard had said she would donate the entire $7 million payout to charities, though she testified in court that she did not make the donations.

After the end of her relationship with Depp, Heard reportedly dated Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
