AceShowbiz - Amber Heard has been pictured for the first time since she lost her defamation trial against Johnny Depp. In her first sighting, the "Aquaman" actress was spotted getting off a private jet.
On Thursday, June 9, the 36-year-old star was photographed out and about after the verdict hearing. The actress, who was with her sister Whitney Henriquez, assistant and bodyguard, wore a green top as her blonde hair hung in waves down her back.
Amber flew into New Jersey's Teterboro Airport via private plane around noon. She was then driven to New York City before heading back to the airport and flying into Washington, D.C that same day, as she returned to her rental home in Virginia.
Amber's sighting came eight days after Johnny was awarded $10.35 million in damages as a result of the verdict. For her part, she was awarded $2 million in damages in a countersuit.
Her decision to fly private may have been a costly one as it's reported that the actress is "hurting for cash" due to the hefty attorney fees since Johnny won the case. A source told The New York Post that she's now "broke." A separate source even said that she had to switch legal representation and is relying on her homeowner's insurance policy to cover the cost of her current attorneys in the case.
Amber's current net worth has been estimated to be -$6 million as of Friday, June 10, according to the Celebrity Net Worth site and other outlets, a far cry from what she owes Johnny in the wake of the jury's ruling.
On June 1, the seven-person jury reached a verdict in the intense six-week trial, deciding that Johnny proved Amber defamed him in her 2018 Washington Post op-ed about coming forward with sexual-violence allegations.
Following the verdict, it's reported that Amber could be "completely removed" from "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom". "There was a meeting and all of Amber's scenes will be deleted from Aquaman 2," claimed a source close to the production of the DC movie.
During her testimony at the trial, Amber claimed that she "fought really hard" to save her role in "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom". Despite her best effort, she said that her part was reduced significantly in the movie.
However, Walter Hamada, President of DC Films at Warner Bros., denied her claims. Giving his own testimony in the trial, the DC chief insisted that whatever was going on in the outside world between Amber and Johnny these past few years had no bearing on Warner's decision to downplay her role as Mera. He also stressed that it didn't affect how much they paid her.
