Whether you were #teamdepp or #teamheard, a decision was reached on Wednesday by the seven-member jury in Virginia, who spent six weeks listening to the exes duke it out in court.

The groundbreaking court case became an internet sensation, as many tuned in to see if Heard truly did set out to defame her ex-husband - which jurors collectively decided she did.

Following the highly-anticipated verdict, the Aquaman star's lawyer Elaine Bredehoft spoke to Today's Savanah Guthrie on Thursday and dropped another bombshell pertaining to the case.

According to Bredehoft, Heard apparently can't cough up the $10.35 million in damages to pay her ex-husband.

"Oh, no, absolutely not," the attorney told the host when asked if her client can pay the amount awarded to Depp.

Was the verdict swayed by social media?

Bredehoft went on to share that she believes Heard was "demonized" during the trial and that fan favor was "absolutely" in Depp's corner - which Bredehoft feels ultimately affected the outcome of the explosive trial.

In regard to the jurors supposedly not being allowed to scan social media, the attorney told Guthrie, "How can you not? They went home every night, they have families, the families are on social media."

"We had a 10-day break in the middle because of the judicial conference. There's no way they couldn't have been influenced by it. And it was horrible, it really, really was lopsided," the attorney continued.

"I was against cameras in the courtroom and I went on record with that, and had argued against it because of the sensitive nature of this case. But it made it a zoo," Bredehoft added.

The attorney does have a point - considering the massive attention the salacious case gained.

Heard in particular suffered greatly, and said she received death threats and vicious remarks from die-hard Depp fans amid the grueling trial.

Meanwhile, some of Depp's Hollywood peers have spoken out following the conclusion of the trial of the century.

Many applauded the jury's decision and also shared the support for the formerly disgraced actor.

Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson posted the Pirates of the Carribbean alum's pic on Instagram with the brief caption, "YESSSSS" and black heart emojis.

She also re-posted Depp's statement to her IG story.

A few other celebs showed the Dark Shadows star support by directly commenting under his statement on IG.

Model Bella Hadid, filmmaker Taika Waititi, and actors Zoe Saldaña, Emma Roberts, Gemma Chan, Jennifer Aniston, and Jason Momoa - who starred alongside Heard in Aquaman and was coincidentally mentioned during the trial as a supporter of Heard - were among the few that liked Depp's post.

Comedian Amy Schumer, however, seemed to have a different tune as the star posted a powerful quote from ultra-feminist Gloria Steinem on IG.

"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke ... She will need her sisterhood."

Both Depp and Heard addressed the ruling, with the 21 Jump Street star thanking the jury for giving him "his life back," while his ex-wife expressed her "heartbreak" over the decision.
