What is Amber Heard's net worth? Actress wanted access to Johnny Depp's SUV, penthouses as payoff
Amber Heard reportedly sought a payoff from Johnny Depp in exchange for holding off on going public with their life full of sandals. Heard said she would not immediately file an order of protection if her estranged husband gave her access to his SUV and three downtown Los Angeles penthouses at his expense, revealed a 2016 letter presented at the trial.
The letter, dated May 24, 2016, from Heard's attorney Samantha Spector, sought an arrangement to “do everything possible to keep this personal matter out of the media spotlight.” The actress demanded “exclusive use and possession of the black Range Rover, the vehicle she is currently driving, with Johnny to continue to make all payments.” She also requested “exclusive use and possession of 849 S. Broadway, Penthouse Nos. 1, 3 and 5 with Johnny continuing to pay mortgage, utilities, etc.,” and also sought $100,000 in legal fees and $25,000 “for forensic account costs.”
What is Amber Heard's net worth?
As per reports, Heard's estimated net worth is $8 million. Heard made $5 million for the first 'Aquaman' movie and $10 million for the sequel, 'Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom'. Heard's career in the entertainment industry began in 2003 when she appeared in two music videos - Kenny Chesney's 'There Goes My Life' and Eisley's 'I Wasn't Prepared," and an array of TV shows and movies, her career really took off in 2015 — the same year when she married Depp — when she had prominent roles in four mainstream movies. She played the lead in the comedy-drama 'Magic Mike XXL,' which like its predecessor, 'Magic Mike' (2012), was a huge box office success. Heard also starred in the critically acclaimed historical drama 'The Danish Girl' and the independent crime thriller 'The Adderall Diaries.' She also appeared in the television film 'One More Time.'
Heard received a $7 million settlement from Depp when the divorce was finalized. Amber then vowed to donate the settlement to charity, specifically to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and the ACLU. Heard got cast in the biggest movie franchise of her career - DC's 'Aquaman' - became the spokesperson of cosmetics giant L'Oréal Paris, as well as American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) ambassador for women's rights with a focus on gender-based violence, following her divorce from Depp.
On Thursday, April 28, Terence Dougherty, the Chief Operating Officer of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) testified that Heard never kept her word despite her $3.5 million pledge to the organization. Heard reportedly only paid $350,000. Daugherty said that when the organization reached out to Heard in 2019 about the annual installments she pledged, and that "we learned that she was having financial difficulties.” She personally provided just $350,000 directly while $100,000 came from Depp and $500 thousand actually came from Elon Musk, another of Amber's former romantic partners.
In 2016, she reportedly asked for $50,000 per month from Depp to cover various expenses. Court documents revealed that according to Heard, her monthly expenses included costs like $10,000 for rent, $2,000 a month for eating out, and $10,000 for pet supplies and legal costs. She backed up her effort by claiming she was making a very small income, including $27,000 in royalties from various films. Documents also revealed that although she had earned $250,000 from her various endeavors in 2014, she spent almost $210,000 – leaving her with a net income of only $40,000 for the year. Heard also submitted documents that proved her savings only amounted to $25,000 at the time.
Depp has finished testifying in his $50 million defamation trial against Heard. At the trial, the actor claimed that he was telling the "truth" for his family and children's sake. He also claimed that Heard's allegations against him have ruined his relations in Hollywood. The trial is expected to last at least six weeks. While jurors have heard several contradictory accounts of the relationship between the former pair, Heard's team has portrayed Depp as an abuse partner who was regularly into acohol and drugs. Depp's team, on the other hand, has labeled Heard's allegations of violence as a "hoax" and claimed that it is a deliberate attempt to destroy Depp's reputation
