On Fox Nation, subscribers can currently watch Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard ROUND TWO.
NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Just six weeks after her ex-husband Johnny Depp won a $10.35 million defamation judgment against her, Amber Heard sold her desert retreat in July.
Heard, 36, nearly doubled her purchase price when she sold her Yucca Valley digs in Southern California for $1,050,000.
According to property records and TMZ , an unnamed trust connected to the “Aquaman” actress paid $570,000 for the opulent house in 2019.
According to Zillow.com, the adobe single-story house, which was never publicly posted for sale, was legally closed on July 18.

Heard had lived in the 2,457-square-foot house close to Joshua Tree as her primary residence for the last few years.
When she testified at the Depp v. Heard trial in May, she revealed the town where she lived, which led to the address becoming public.
The Southwestern-style home on roughly six acres was purchased full cash, according to records, according to real-estate news site Dirt reported .
The husband is an insurance professional, and the wife has been his secretary for many years. The house features a 110-foot bridge in the rear, a three-car garage, and concrete floors.
Since her significant judicial loss in the Depp v. Heard case, Heard has frequently been spotted in the New York neighborhood of the Hamptons.

A seven-member jury found that Heard had defamed her ex-husband in a Washington Post op-ed in which she identified herself as a victim of domestic abuse, awarding Depp $10 million in compensation damages and $5 million in punitive damages after the lengthy six-week trial in Fairfax, Virginia.
Later, a judge decreased the amount of punitive damages to $350,000, the maximum allowed by Virginia law.

Heard did achieve some measure of success as the jury awarded her $2 million in her countersuit.
The appeal of the judgment has been announced by both parties.
