When it comes to the American actress, Amber Heard, nothing is ever straightforward and clear. The shadow of ambiguity that surrounds her never fades.
Okay, we have questions. Is she living a double life? Does she have an alias? Since when does she have a daughter? Is she still struggling financially? How on earth is she living what seems to be her best life in this Mediterranean country, as if she’s not been declared bankrupt only a few months after her defamation trial? Did she hit the jackpot and win big at some no deposit casino? PHEW! We want answers…
Amber Heard last seen in Spain
At the beginning of October, Amber Heard was seen walking around with close friend, and what others suspect to be her girlfriend Bianca Butti, and her daughter Oonagh Paige Heard in Palma de Mallorca.
No one knows what Amber Heard was doing in Spain, she could have even been there on vacation for all they knew; however, the locals have commented that she is doing nothing to cover her face or hide. She is out in the open and interacting with them.
The actress’s current residence is unknown and images of her following the trial against Depp, which concluded in June, have been missing for the last three months. The last time she was seen in public was in that same month, boarding a private jet.
Heard has also been careful to shield her one-year-old daughter, whom she welcomed via surrogate in April 2021, from the public eye. However, she did share the arrival of the little one in July 2021 on Instagram when she wrote:
“ I am so excited to share this news with you. Four years ago, I decided I wanted to have a child.”
In her announcement, Heard explained that she had taken an unconventionally independent route to motherhood but refused to divulge further details and so far the identity of Oonagh’s father remains shrouded in mystery. She refers to herself as both ‘mom and dad’ in Instagram posts featuring the one-year-old girl.
Post-trial life: what is expected of her?
She did mention Oonagh however during the defamation trial against Depp earlier this year when she told the court:
“I want to move on with my life. I have a baby. I have to move on. I want to move on, and I want Johnny to move on too.”
The sighting of Heard in Spain comes after it has been alleged that the star changed her legal team following a jury that ruled heavily in favor of Johnny Depp on June 1 when the Pirates of the Caribbean star sued Amber over statements she wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.
The title of the op-ed is: “ I spoke up against sexual violence- and faced our culture’s wrath, that has to change.”
Although Depp was not mentioned by name in the article, his lawyers were triumphant in arguing that it defamed the actor and hurt his career, thanks to the implications that he had abused and maltreated his former wife throughout their marriage. The actor strongly denied this.
The Depp-Heard trial, which took place in Fairfax County, Virginia ran from April 11, 2022, to June 1, 2022, and was televised. It garnered a huge amount of attention across social media and the press.
The Jury found all three statements from the Washington Post op-ed false. They were written with actual malice and the intention of defaming him. Heard was ordered to pay Johnny Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and an additional $5 million in retaliatory damages.
Following this decision Heard sold her California home to pay off her debts. Before her stay in Spain, she spent time in the Hamptons and Israel with friends and her daughter.
