However, the punitive damages were reduced to $350,000 due to a limit imposed by Virginia state law.
 
"Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed," Depp wrote.
 
"And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled," Depp wrote.
