Amber Heard sells desert home as $8M Johnny Depp debt looms

Published

on

Nearly two months after Johnny Depp won his bombshell defamation case against Amber Heard, the actress has quietly sold off her California desert oasis, The Post can confirm. 

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom Yucca Valley estate, which sits on 6 acres of land in California, sold off-market. 

Property records show, on July 18, the home traded hands for $1.05 million. 

New Jersey-based Rickard and Carol-Jeanette Jorgensen, who also own property in Nevada and are founders of Jorgensen & Company LLC, are the new owners, The Post has learned.

It is unclear how the Jorgensens discovered the off-market home or if there’s a direct connection to Heard. The Post has reached out for comment. 

Spanning over 2,450 square feet, the previous listing described the estate as “the chance to own a once in a lifetime property.”

Boasting rocks, mountains and desert views, the compound comes with a 110-foot engineered bridge, which leads to a mountainside gazebo.

Amber Heard posted an Instagram photo in February at her Yucca Valley home with the custom 110-foot engineered bridge in the frame.

Features include solid iron front doors, a kitchen with a double griddle stove and wiring for for the whole-home surround stereo system.

The primary bedroom comes with dual walk-in closets and grand stone dual sinks, plus a soaking tub.

Meanwhile, the garage spans some 1,200 square feet.

Heard, 36, purchased the home for $570,000 in 2019. She is walking away with a hefty profit. 

But considering the $8.3 million she was ordered to pay to Depp after being found guilty of defamation by the jury, every penny helps. 

Overall, the “Aquaman” actress was asked to cover $10 million in compensatory damages, plus $350,000 in punitive damages.

After the counter-lawsuit she filed, in which Depp was ordered to pay $2 million and Virginia’s cap on damages, Heard is left to pay $5 million in total — money she says she does not have. 

And she might now be kicking herself for that. 

Newly unsealed court documents now show that Heard walked away from a divorce payout that could have run tens of millions of dollars.

Documents obtained by The Post show that Heard denied requests from lawyers to seek half of Depp’s $33 million he made filming the fourth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” — since it was made while they were married.

In an email submitted to the court, Heard wrote of her decision not to pursue $16.5 million that she was being “amazingly true to [her] word, that this is not about the money.” 

The email exchange never made it to the trial, since a judge refused to let that evidence be admitted during the defamation trial. 

The Post has reached out to Heard’s reps for comment.

The proud mom-of-two also shared an adorable Story as she took a walk with her two kids: one and a half year old Gus and Ozzie, whom she welcomed on October 21.

‘2 under 2.’ she wrote on the adorable snap which saw the boys in their respective strollers and Mandy bundled up in a plaid coat.  

Moore shares her two boys with husband Taylor Goldsmith, 37. The two have been married since 2018.

It comes after Moore revealed she’s ‘relishing’ her longer maternity leave with Ozzie – after rushing back to work following Gus’ birth.

She admitted last month that she didn’t get the chance to ‘hunker down’ with first son Gus, returning to work on This Is Us a month after his March 2021 birth.

Speaking to Parents Magazine, she said: ‘To be able to close out this really seminal chapter of my life with This Is Us this past May and take this time now to kind of just hunker down and be a family, it’s something I didn’t get to experience with Gus. I’m relishing this time.’

‘Again, especially around the holidays, it’s so fun and it’s the perfect excuse to just stay home and be cozy and get my feet underneath me and figure out how to operate in this new chapter.

However, she will now make her TV return as Benita Alexander – while Ramirez will play Paolo Macchiarini – in the second season of Dr. Death, which is based on the third season of the Wondery podcast of the same name.

Season two will follow Macchiarini ‘a charming surgeon renowned for his innovative operations that earn him the nickname “Miracle Man.” When investigative journalist Benita Alexander approaches him for a story, the line between personal and professional begins to blur, changing her life forever,’ according to Variety.

‘As she learns how far Paolo will go to protect his secrets, a group of doctors halfway across the world make shocking discoveries of their own that call everything about the “Miracle Man” into question.’

The first season of Dr. Death, was based on the true story of Christopher Duntsch (played by Joshua Jackson), a neurosurgeon who became infamous for mutilating his patients. The negligent neurosurgeon killed two of his patients during surgery and maimed nearly three dozen others. 

There is currently no release date for the new season of Dr. Death, though the expected air date is sometime in 2023.

Sharna Burgess Depends on Mom ‘A Lot’ With Her, Brian Austin Green’s Baby

Published

on

Celeb moms also need their mothers every once in a while! Sharna Burgess opened up about how her “mum” has been there for her after she and Brian Austin Green welcomed their son in July.

“How it started … how it’s going,” the Dancing With the Stars pro, 37, wrote via Instagram on Friday, December 2, alongside two sweet photos of her mom holding baby Zane.

“It really does take a village,” Burgess continued in her caption. “I have depended on my mum a lot these last few months and especially weeks with us moving house. Watching her be a Grandma to my son has been so beautiful. The memories and moments and sometimes unsolicited advice 😉 have all been exactly what I needed at the time.”

She added: “Mums just know things and I totally get that now. And she is LOVING her Grandma duties and her now big family filled with all the kids and all the animals and all the love,” concluding the emotional post by writing, “Deep gratitude for my Mums strength, ability and desire to move her whole life here to be with us. I love you Woo.”

Burgess’ fellow DWTS costar Sasha Farber appeared to appreciate the dancer’s sentiment, commenting, “❤️❤️❤️,” in the caption of the post.

The Australia native previously gave credit to her mom when gushing over her baby boy. “I now wholeheartedly understand everything my mother ever said to me about how a mother’s love is unlike any other,” Burgess wrote via Instagram in a post days after Zane’s birth. “You know, the whole ‘you’ll understand when you have kids’ thing parents say… I get it now.”

She concluded the heartfelt message with an emotional sentiment about her little one. “I will love him and worry for him to my last breath and beyond,” she penned. “Heaven is a place on earth and I have found it.”

While Burgess didn’t hesitate to praise her mother’s skills with her son in her latest upload, she previously opened up to Us Weekly about her own instincts as a new mom.

“You’re like, ‘What if I don’t know what to do? What if I don’t have an instinct? What if I drop him?’ You have all these insane, irrational fears,” she exclusively told Us in August about her worries before welcoming Zane. However, the Disney+ personality told Us, the “motherly instinct” kicks in. “And you just somehow know that to do,” she shared.

Burgess and Green, 49, have been dating since 2020. The Beverly Hills, 90210, alum is also dad to four more sons. He shares Kassius, 20, with ex Vanessa Marcil, and Noah, 10, Bodhi, 8, Journey, 6, with ex-wife Megan Fox.

The Transformers star, 36, came to visit her sons’ youngest half-sibling soon after his birth.

“She came in and got some Zane snuggle time,” Burgess exclusively told Us just weeks after delivering her baby boy. “Which was wonderful and really great to see.”
