A $22000-a-month Virginia house with a tennis court, theater, spa, and other amenities was home of Amber Heard during her defamation battle with actor Johnny Depp. During her defamation trial against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard resided in a luxurious $22,500-a-month Virginia house, it has been discovered.
After a jury found she defamed her ex-husband and ordered her to pay more than $8 million in damages, the 36-year-old woman claims she can’t afford the $13,000-square-foot home she paid for during the trial. Depp, 58, was sentenced to pay the actress $15 million – $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages – for her role in the film.
Later, a judge decided to limit the damages to the maximum of $350,000 in Virginia. Heard owes Depp a total of $8.35million, minus the $ 2 million he was ordered to pay her. When asked by TMZ if she plans to appeal the verdict, Elaine Bredhoft, the actress’ lawyer, said: “Absolutely not.”

Although her lawyer claimed she was in financial trouble, Heard and her family reportedly hid away in luxury while the trial was taking place, according to TMZ. Her trial took place at the Fairfax Country Courthouse, a 25-minute drive from the 13,000-square-foot mansion the actress apparently rented out in McLean, Virginia, a lush suburb of Washington, D.C.
A tennis court, a home movie theater, eight bedrooms, and a pair of sweeping staircases in the entryway are just some of the features of the property.
This McLean mansion is described on Zillow as ‘one of the most unusual and exclusive estates available in McLean,’ and the listing characterizes the property’s two-story foyer as “a true ‘wow’ and dream for entertainers” with an “elegant double curved staircase.”
There is no record of Heard renting the property, although the date of the rental is listed as May 4, 2020. No one knows if the home was rented out when the trial began on April 11. At least one eyewitness claimed that Heard had been spotted at the residence of Whitney Heard and Oomagh Paige, Whitney’s daughter. The property was also visited by Heard’s security.
Today’s Show appearance by Bredhoft stated that Heard has ‘excellent grounds’ to appeal and that he intends to.
No, certainly not,’ Bredhoft said when asked if Depp’s assertions that she lied by accusing him of abuse throughout their marriage had been proven by the jury. If Heard’s legal team withheld the therapist’s notes and texts detailing abuse, they could have won her case, according to Bredehoft’s report. Heard intends to challenge this decision.
‘We had an enormous amount of evidence that was suppressed in this case that was in the UK case,’ Bredehoft said, ‘In the UK case when it came in, Amber won and Mr. Depp lost.’
The court ruled that Depp had committed at least 12 acts of domestic abuse, including sexual violence against Amber,’ he said in a statement.
After a six-week trial and hours of deliberation, the Fairfax County jury reversed its decision. An op-ed written by Heard for the Washington Post in 2018 in which she accused Johnny Depp of abuse was deemed to have been written ‘with actual malice’ by the court.
It was said that Heard has “excellent grounds” for an extraordinary appeal by Bredehoft. The absence of very, very significant’ medical records dating back to 2012, according to the lawyer, was to be blamed. They ‘showed a pattern’ of Heard reporting Depp’s alleged abuse to her therapist Additionally, Ms. Bredehoft said, there were a number of texts indicating the severity of Depp’s abuse toward Heard.
She said: ‘We had a significant amount of texts, including from Mr. Depp’s assistants, saying ‘When I told him he kicked you, he cried, he is so sorry.’ That didn’t come in.’ A judge in Fairfax County rejected a request by Depp’s defense team to include this evidence in the case.
You won’t be taken seriously until you record your partner beating you on your phone, Ms. Bredehoft warned. Despite the judge’s stringent orders not to read anything about the case outside of court, Heard’s attorney believed the jury in the case had been swayed by public opinion, particularly via social media.
There is no way they could not be affected, she added of the jury’s access to public emotion during the case. ‘It was horrible. It was really, really lopsided. It’s like the Roman coliseum, how they viewed this whole case.’ Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
