Amber Heard has to pay for her defamation defense against Johnny Depp somehow…
Apparently, one way would be to sell her house.
And sell her house she did. Was it related to the Depp trial? We don’t know. But it sure seems like quite the coincidence if not.
Heard owned a Southern California home, which as TMZ relayed, has been bought by someone else.
“The Yucca Valley home that was long rumored to belong to (Heard) since the trial earlier this year was recently sold for $1,050,000, with a closing date of July 18 … this according to Zillow property records,” TMZ wrote. “The crib had been purchased in 2019 through an anonymous trust that reportedly has ties to Amber … getting quietly snapped at the time for just over $570k.”
The new owner of the home told TMZ that, yes, he had been dealing with Heard’s representatives during the purchase. They added they never interacted with Heard herself.
A jury awarded Depp $10.3 million, a sum that Heard’s attorneys claim she can’t afford to pay. As relayed by our Aura Starchild, Heard is appealing the verdict.
What Is Heard’s Team Saying?
“We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment,” a spokesperson for Heard said. “We are therefore appealing the verdict. While we realize today’s filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice.”
Heard’s legal team stated in a court filing that Depp “proceeded solely on a defamation by implication theory, abandoning any claims that Ms. Heard’s statements were actually false.”
But things aren’t looking real promising, as one judge has already rebuffed Heard’s claims of a mistrial. But hey, at least she no longer has to live in the home where she lived when she lost.
