Amber Heard has sold her beloved California desert home for $1.05 million, The Post reports. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom property set on six acres of land sold on July 18, with the cash earned likely to go towards paying the $8.3 million debt she owes ex-husband Johnny Depp following his defamation case against her.
The house sold to New Jersey-based Rickard and Carol-Jeanette Jorgensen. The couple own other property in Nevada and are the founders of Jorgensen & Company, LLC. It has not been reported how the pair became aware of the home being up for sale or if Heard knows them directly.
Heard bought the property back in 2019. The 2,450 square-foot property has desert and mountain views and even has a 110-foot engineered bridge leading to a mountainside gazebo. There’s also a 1,200-square-foot garage, dual walk-in closets, a soaking tub, and a whole-home surround stereo system. At the time, Heard only paid $570,000 in 2019, so she’s made a pretty good profit.
It’s unclear where Heard plans to live now. While it’s likely that she owns multiple properties, this may not be the last sale we see, especially given that the profit made here will barely put a dent in the hefty amount she owes Depp. Selling off extraneous assets is a good way to begin making up that sum, but the likelihood of Heard having enough to cover the full $8.3 million is pretty slim.
Heard could have made millions from Depp. In which case, paying him wouldn’t have been a problem. Newly unsealed court documents reveal that she walked away from a massive divorce settlement that could have made her nearly $17 million. She refused her lawyers’ request to seek half of the $33 million Depp made on the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean while they were married, with an email revealing that Heard was “amazingly true to [her] word, that htis is not about the money.”
