Legal woes: It comes after Johnny was awarded $10.35m for damages after a defamation suit against ex-wife Amber Heard - which the actress has now appealed

Johnny Depp has faced financial difficulties after selling off significant portions of his valuable property portfolio following his divorce from Amber Heard. In 2016, he listed his Venetian mansion overlooking the Grand Canal for $10.8 million, having purchased it for $13 million in January 2011. In 2017, Depp sold his five LA penthouses for a total of $10.88 million, which was $2 million less than their asking price. Furthermore, Depp let go of his Kentucky ranch-style home in 2020 for almost half its value, earning only $1,350,000 despite its reported worth of $2.33 million. Recently, he also put his downtown Los Angeles penthouse on the market for $1.76 million, which he previously shared with Heard. These legal troubles come after Depp was awarded $10.35 million for damages in a defamation suit against his ex-wife, a decision that Heard has appealed.
