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

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.
