Amber Heard has sold her California home after losing the multimillion-dollar defamation case against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The ‘Aquaman’ actress reportedly made a $500,000 profit by selling the $1.05 million property in Yucca Valley.
According to information from tmz, the actress would have bought the property in 2019, before the pandemic, through an anonymous trust, and since then the value of the house would have increased.
The site claimed it had spoken to the new owner, who revealed that he had discussed the sale with the actress’ agents, rather than directly with Heard.
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star sued Heard for defamation over an op-ed she wrote in December 2018 in the Washington Post that, according to her lawyers, insinuated he had abused her while they were together.
After six long weeks of the trial, the jury ruled that the actor was defamed by the op-ed, even though he never mentioned his name and awarded him $10.35 million in damages.
Heard won on one of the charges in her counterclaim, successfully arguing that Depp’s press agent defamed her by claiming her allegations were “an abuse hoax” meant to capitalize on the movement #MeToo. For this, the jury awarded him 2 million dollars.
Despite this amount in her favor, the American performer has since said she cannot pay the damages awarded to the actor.
