According to a new report, Amber Heard sold her Yucca Valley home in California for $1.05 million.
The Aquaman star allegedly paid $570,000 for the six-acre property in 2019 through an anonymous trust tied to her.
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 2015 and is approximately 10 miles west of Joshua Tree National Park. It is over 2,400 square feet.
The desert hideaway, which had been her primary residence for several years, quietly changed hands on 18 July via ‘Heard’s people’ and was never publicly listed for sale, according to TMZ.
According to The Dirt, records show that the home’s buyers are a married couple with no known connection to Heard or the entertainment industry.
The Magic Mike actress walks away with a $480,000 profit from the sale of the Mojave Desert digs, which will undoubtedly help her cover the compensatory and punitive damages she owes ex-husband Johnny Depp following their defamation lawsuit earlier this summer.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star was awarded $15 million in damages in June for defamation claims made in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post, which the jury agreed defamed him.
The judge set a limit of $10.35 million, and in a separate verdict, Heard was awarded $2 million in damages via a counterclaim, leaving her owing the actor $8.3 million.
Heard has since filed for a new trial, citing ‘inconsistent verdicts’ and mistaken identity after one juror’s date of birth did not match the one on court documents and publicly available information.
In response, Depp’s legal team stated that Heard’s lawyers “had more than enough time” to investigate the jurors, and that the person who ended up on the jury when another was summoned was still “qualified to serve as a juror.”
They also claimed that the request for a mistrial was made on July 8, seven days after the deadline set by the court to contest the verdict.
However, it appears that Depp and his team are pursuing their own appeal, disputing the $2 million he was ordered to pay Heard.
According to The Guardian, Depp’s team filed the appeal on July 22, just one day after Heard’s team filed another appeal.
“By counsel, Plaintiff and counterclaim-defendant John C Depp II hereby appeals to the Court of Appeals of Virginia from all adverse rulings and from the final judgement order of this circuit court entered on June 24, 2022,” the documents state.
