How will Amber Heard pay her debt to Johnny Depp?

The American actress was ordered to pay 15 million dollars to Johnny Depp.

On Wednesday evening, American justice condemned Amber Heard to pay 15 million dollars to her husband Johnny Depp. The latter accused the star of “Aquaman” of defamation after the publication of an article in the “Washington Post” in 2018 where she said she was the victim of domestic violence. The father of Lily-Rose (23) and Jack (20) was ordered to pay his ex-wife $2 million. The jury found that he was also guilty of defamation, to a lesser extent.

But how will Amber Heard pay such a sum? The 36-year-old American is far from having a CV as full as that of Johnny Depp. She received $ 1 million for her performance in the aquatic superhero film, then $ 2 million for her role in “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom”, scheduled for March 2023. These are the two largest fees earned by Amber Heard in his career.

Elon Musk to the rescue?

She also received 7 million dollars at the end of her 16-month marriage with Johnny Depp, promising to donate this sum to the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (ACLU). During the trial, she admitted that she had not been able to honor her word: the sum was swallowed up in the costs of lawyers and justice. Some relatives may be able to help him. Elon Musk, whose fortune is estimated at more than $200 billion, shared his life briefly in 2017. The Tesla boss even allegedly made an anonymous donation of $500,000 in Amber Heard’s name to the ACLU in an attempt to to honor some of its promises.

One thing is certain, she will not be able to count on the help of her family to pay the 13 million dollars, although she has several years to settle this sum. Coming from a modest family, originally from Texas, she arrived in Hollywood without anyone’s help. His image was greatly degraded by the trial and mocked by the whole world. From the first days of the trial, Amber Heard had already lost the battle of public opinion.
