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, wany years have supported and believed in me were forever
All in the blink of an eye.
False, very serious and criminal allegation were levied at
me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful
content, all though no charges were ever brought against me. It had
already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond 4 and
it had a seismic impact on my life and no career.
And six years later, the Jury gave me my life back. I am
My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the
height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the
inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made
after considerable thought,
From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case
was to reveal the truth, regardless of tho outcome. Speaking
the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all
those who have remained steadfast in their support of me. I feel
at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that.
I am, and have been, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love
and the colossal support and kindness from around the world. I
hope that my quest to have the truth be told will have helped
others, men or women, who have found themselves in my situation,
and that those supporting them never give up. I also hope that
the position will now return to innocent until proven guilty,
both within the courts and in the media
I wish to acknowledge the noble work of the Judge, the
jurors, the court staff and the Sheriffs who have sacrificed
their own time to get to this point, and to my diligent and
unwavering legal team who did an extraordinary job in helping
me to share the truth.
The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally
Veritas numquam perit.
Truth never perishes.

The disappointment I feel today is beyond
words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain
of evidence still was not enough to stand
up to the disproportionate power,
influence, and sway of my ex-husband.
I’m even more disappointed with what this
verdict means for other women. It is a
setback. It sets back the clock to a time
when a woman who spoke up and spoke
out could be publicly shamed and
humiliated. It sets back the idea that
violence against women is to be taken
I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in
getting the jury to overlook the key issue
of Freedom of Speech and ignore
evidence that was so conclusive that we
won in the UK.
I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder
still that I seem to have lost a right
thought I had as an American – to speak
freely and openly.
