Amber Heard is not letting the jury have the last word after awarding her ex-husband Johnny Depp $10.35 million in damages in his defamation trial against her. In a 20-minute teaser for Savannah Guthrie’s one-hour interview with Heard set to air Friday at 8 p.m. on NBC’s “Dateline,” the actress shared her therapist’s notes documenting her reports of alleged abuse stretching back to 2012. The judge did not allow in the evidence at the Fairfax County Circuit Court trial as it’s considered hearsay.”There’s a binder worth of years of notes dating back to 2012 from the very beginning of my relationship that were taken by my doctor, who I was reporting the abuse to,” Heard, 36, told Guthrie.JOHNNY DEPP v.
