Heard’s money fears after Depp di­vorce

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

AM­BER Heard fret­ted that her di­vorce from ex-hus­band Johnny Depp would leave her fi­nan­cially ru­ined.

The Dan­ish Girl ac­tress’ split from Depp was fi­nalised last month and the 30-yearold screen beauty – who was shown in doc­u­ments filed by the ac­tor’s le­gal team last year to have ex­penses four times higher than her $100 000-a-month earn­ings (R1.3 mil­lion) – is re­lieved to fi­nally be mov­ing on, after fears that the lengthy and ac­ri­mo­nious di­vorce would leave her pen­ni­less.

A source told the new is­sue of Grazia magazine: “She doesn’t have the huge funds Johnny does to keep the fight go­ing. She lit­er­ally couldn’t af­ford for this to drag on.

“Am­ber is ex­hausted. She’s been do­ing her best to put on a brave face and throw her­self back into her work, but in­side she must feel like her world’s crum­bling.

“She’s in talks for a few ex­cit­ing projects and she’s been scram­bling to line up some money-spin­ning work, be­cause she’s been ter­ri­fied that Johnny’s bit­ter an­tics with his le­gal team could ren­der her bank­rupt.”

Heard, who is do­nat­ing her set­tle­ment to char­ity, is said to have been in a “very bad place” as her break-up from the 53-year-old star whom she ac­cused of as­sault­ing her when they split last year, took its toll.

A source said: “Am­ber has been in a very bad place. The le­gal bat­tle with Johnny has been a liv­ing night­mare.”

And now the Rum Di­ary ac­tress, who is dat­ing busi­ness­man Elon Musk, just wants to move. But she hasn’t got many of her pos­ses­sions back from the Black Mass star’s house in the Ba­hamas or had her car re­turned.

“Am­ber just wants to move on but it seems as if the goal posts keep mov­ing. Ev­ery­one is try­ing to con­vince her she’ll bounce back, but Depp has been like a dark cloud over her head.” – Bang Me­dia
