Hollywood actress Amber Heard was allegedly exposed to hundreds of death threats and cruel internet memes during her defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
The Aquaman star, 36, reportedly “just had to get out of the US” following her trial against the Pirates of The Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow.
Jurors gave a verdict in Depp’s favour after a testing six-week trial in Fairfax County, Virginia. In December, the actress made the “very difficult decision” to reach a settlement in the case.
And now it has been claimed that Amber picked up and left her home in California’s desert town of Yucca Valley with her now two-year-old daughter Oonagh Paige and headed to Europe as she believed there was too much “chaos” in the States.
Amber “felt like a pariah” as she “lost the case and was treated as such”, a source told PEOPLE.
She was first reported to be renting a home on the Spanish island of Mallorca before moving to an upscale neighbourhood of Madrid where she “gets more privacy”.
She told the publication: “A big thing I had to learn (was) that I’m not in control of stories other people create around me. That’s something that probably I’ll appreciate as a blessing further down the line. Right now, I just kind of want to not have, you know, stones thrown at me so much.”
