Amber Heard’s financial status has been a question of concern ever since the defamation trial against Johnny Depp did not go her way. According to it, the actress owes Depp an amount of $10.4 million. She received a hit to both her reputation and her financial situation after the trial ended on 1st June 2022.
Although she has not been an actress as big as Depp, she still was comfortable enough to live a life of luxury. That, however, may not be the case anymore.
Amber Heard’s Career Take Off
Amber Heard soon after finishing high school got roles in music videos and TV shows. Even after getting smaller roles here and there, she was never much recognized, with many saying she lacked the ‘wow factor.’
Heard’s big break was in The Rum Diary, where she met Johnny Depp and was then able to get the recognition that later got her roles like Mera in Aquaman. This also kick-started her relationship with the actor which now seems like was doomed from the very beginning.
The roller-coaster relationship between the two not only led Johnny Depp to lose multiple roles in huge franchises and be let go of massive deals, but it also sabotaged Amber Heard’s role in Aquaman.
Amber Heard’s Role In Aquaman
After the trial took place, fans of Depp circulated an online petition to get Heard removed from the Aquaman franchise altogether and it isn’t surprising to see that the petition was signed by a staggering number. Warner Bros. Discovery then allegedly decided to give the actress a minimal role in the sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
Apart from this, she also would now find it difficult to pay her legal team’s fee as she claimed that she would have trouble paying the decided amount to the court at all. What may have not looked to be a face-level problem went much deeper when it came to her financial situation, perhaps putting her in further debt.
Amber Heard’s Six Million Dollar Debt
Amber Heard’s Net Worth after the six-week trial has been a concern and the reveal of it has proven to be worse than one would expect. The latest stats have shown that Heard’s net worth is a negative six million dollars whereas Johnny Depp on the other hand has a net worth of a hundred million dollars.
The court has denied Amber Heard and her legal team to apply for an appeal and after being found guilty of defamation, finding acting jobs might prove to be difficult for her as her reputation is only decreasing and by the looks of it, so is her bank account.
What Heard will do now to pay her dues is currently unknown, as well as how she tries to recover this negative six million dollars deficit.
