Amber Heard sells a house to pay Johnny Depp's Compensatory Damages
Does Amber Heard need money to be able to pay Johnny Depp? After losing the trial for defamation, the actress sold the property in California.
In early June, a Virginia jury found three statements in the op-ed, in which Amber Heard claimed to be a victim of domestic violence, were defamatory, awarding Johnny Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in damages. punitive damages were reduced to $350,000 to meet the Virginia statutory limit.
The jury also found Depp liable for a statement made by his attorney, Adam Waldman, in which he accused Heard of fabricating a "hoax," for which the jury ordered Depp to pay Heard $2 million.

Amber Heard's legal team admitted that the actress could not pay damages to the actor. Additionally, multiple sources told the New York Post in early June that the actress was "broke" due to the high legal fees associated with her and the Depp trial.
That is why the actress is probably looking for alternatives to cover the expenses in case the verdict is not annulled.
According to TMZ, Amber Heard has sold a house in Yucca Valley, California for $1,050,000. For a long time, it was believed that the property belonged to the actress, but nothing was confirmed since the crib was purchased in 2019 through an anonymous trust.
However, the medium has confirmed that the actress was the owner since she contacted the new owner, who claimed to have dealt with Amber's people, but never with the actress.
After the sale, Amber earned nearly double what she paid for it 3 years ago, earning roughly $480,000, which, while not a small amount, is not enough to cover the payment to Depp.
