A new report says that Amber Heard sold her California home in Yucca Valley for $1.05 million.
The Aquaman actor is said to have bought the six-acre property in 2019 for $570,000 through an anonymous trust she set up.
The more than 2,400-square-foot home was built in 2015 and is about 10 miles west of Joshua Tree National Park. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
TMZ says that the desert hideaway, her primary home for a few years, quietly changed hands on July 18 through “Heard’s people” and was never publicly listed for sale.
The Dirt says that public records show that a married couple. The house without ties to Amber Heard or the entertainment business.
The Magic Mike actress made $480,000 from selling her Mojave Desert home. This will help her pay the compensatory and punitive damages she owes her ex-husband Johnny Depp from their defamation lawsuit earlier this summer.
In June, the actor from “Pirates of the Caribbean” was given $15 million in damages for Accusations of domestic violence against Heard in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post. The jury agreed that Heard’s words hurt the actor’s reputation.
The judge put a limit on this at $10.35 million. And Heard was awarded $2 million in damages through a counterclaim, so she still owes the actor $8.3 million.
Since then, Heard has asked for a new trial, citing “inconsistent verdicts.” And mistaken identity after one juror’s date of birth didn’t match the one listed in court documents. And other publicly available information.
In response, Depp’s lawyers said that Heard’s lawyers had “more than enough time” to look into jurors. And that the person who was found guilty on the jury when another person had been called was still “qualified to serve as a juror.”
They also said that the request for a new trial was made on July 8. Seven days after the court-ordered deadline for appealing the verdict.
Now, it looks like Depp and his team are trying to appeal the $2 million Heard was told he had to pay.
The Guardian says that Depp’s team filed the appeal on July 22, just one day after Amber Heard’s team filed another appeal.
“Plaintiff and counterclaim-defendant John C. Depp II, by counsel, at this moment appeals to the court of appeals of Virginia from all adverse rulings. And from the final judgment order of this circuit court entered on June 24, 2022,” documents say.
Heard’s new appeal says that the court made mistakes that stopped a fair. And just verdict that was in line with the First Amendment. “So, we are appealing the decision. Even though we know that today’s filing will set Twitter on fire. There are steps we need to take to ensure justice and fairness, “Heard’s spokesman said.
