Amber Heard lying low in a swanky multi-million dollar Mallorca villa belonging to disgraced politician
COSTITX, SPAIN: Five months after the contentious defamation court case against her former husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard is now lying low in a town called Costitx situated in Mallorca, a Spanish island, away from the excitement of Hollywood. She is renting a multi-million-dollar mansion along with her photographer partner Bianca Butti and one-year-old daughter Oonagh Paige, as per The Daily Mail.
The 5,000 sqm luxury villa belongs to the family of a local politician Maria Antonia Munar, who was in prison for corruption in 2013 and was released in 2020. She also adopted an alias to enjoy life away from the limelight in the small town located deep in Meditatterean island's interior with only 1,270 inhabitants. The 36-year-old actress has been using a cowgirl pseudonym that goes by the name of American frontierswoman and sharpshooter Martha Jane Cannary or 'Calamity Jane'.
The 'Aquaman' actress was not exactly unrecognizable given how high profile her case was. However, the locals have left her alone and unbothered since they believe in 'live and let live.' They also find Heard to be "polite" when she speaks Spanish in a Mexican accent. "She is like anyone else, she buys fruit and vegetables, she speaks Spanish with a Mexican accent and she's very polite. She always says good morning to us," said a grocer.
"Everyone here treats her like one of the others; in fact, she’s been in this town for months without anyone knowing," said a resident of the town toEl Mundo. Another neighbor confirmed that Heard "walks with her daughter and goes to the park" just like every other mother of the town. "She leads a very normal village life as if she were a native," said another neighbor.
The rented mansion was previously up for sale for an astonishing price of $2.8M. It comes with an infinity pool and a home movie theatre along with some of the the best views of the Tramuntana mountains. With Heard residing in the villa for the time being, the mansion has been taken off the market. There is much speculation about how much is the actress paying for the luxury accommodation.
Amber had sold her California home to pay off her debts. She also has to pay Johnny Depp a hefty amount of $10M in compensatory damages along with $350,000 in punitive damages after losing the defamation case. Moreover, her role in 'Aquaman 2' might also be uncertain. With all the odds stacked against the actress, she has asked the judge to toss the jury's verdict as the judgment was not supported by evidence, as per NY Post.
