It was in the summer of 2022 when popular Hollywood actor Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, for defamation based on an article she wrote, which was published in The Washington Post, about her experience with sexual violence. The news development was reported by almost all news portals across the globe.

The case was decided in June of 2022. The jury ruled in Depp's favour, and Heard was ordered to pay $8.3 million (roughly translating to ₹680 crores). For those unaware, Depp and Heard got divorced in May 2016.

While only a few months have passed since the closing of Depp-Heard saga, a fresh development has swept in. According to a few news portals, Heard has decided to quit Hollywood and settle down in Madrid with her two-year-old daughter Oonagh Paige.

A source close to news portal Daily Mail believes: “I can reveal that Heard has quit Hollywood and quietly relocated to Spain with her young daughter Oonagh. A friend of Heard said, ‘She's bilingual in Spanish and is happy there, raising her daughter away from all the noise. I don't think she is in any hurry to return to work or to Hollywood, but she will probably come back when the time is right, for the right project’."

In December last year, Heard took to Instagram and narrated about the incident and how she feels about it. Heard wrote that agreeing to the settlement was “a very difficult decision”.

“It’s important for me to say that I never chose this,” the post read, adding, “I defended my truth and in doing so my life as I knew it was destroyed. The vilification I have faced on social media is an amplified version of the ways in which women are re-victimized when they come forward. Now I finally have an opportunity to emancipate myself from something I attempted to leave over six years ago and on terms I can agree to. I have made no admission. This is not an act of concession. There are no restrictions or gags with respect to my voice moving forward.”

Before the trial started, Heard was seen on the sets of the movie ‘In The Fire’.
