Amber Heard’s new name as she settles down for new life away from the US

Amber Heard’s new name as she settles down for new life away from the US

Amber Heard has allegedly adopted a 'new name' after she started a life away from the spotlight

Amber Heard has allegedly got a ‘new name’ following her relocation to Europe for a new life away from the spotlight.

Following the dramatic defamation trial between Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp in 2022, it’s not surprising that she has attempted to seek a new life away from fame.

After losing to her ex-partner who was awarded damages following the infamous case, reports have suggested that Heard is now living a totally different life… with a totally different name.

Curious viewers can now relive the whole trial, as a Netflix documentary Depp vs Heard has been released, covering the entire case.

In the years prior to the trial, the couple had announced their divorce after 15 months of marriage, with Heard going on to allege in an interview with the Washington Post that a former flame had been both physically and sexually abusive towards her throughout their relationship.

Despite not naming Depp as the ex in question, the now 61-year-old sued her for defamation, after which she launched a counterclaim for $1 million, accusing him of attempt to front a 'smear campaign' against her.

Following an emotional and lengthy trial in court, a jury went on to vote in favour of Depp, subsequently awarding the Pirates of the Caribbean star $5 million in punitive damages and $10 million in compensatory damages.

Heard was also awarded $2 million in compensatory damages, after the jury voted in her favour regarding a comment that one of Johnny's lawyers had made about her.

Despite her partial success in court, however, the Aquaman star - who, back in 2021, welcomed a daughter via surrogate with an unnamed father - has remained somewhat out of the spotlight.

In fact, it was reported following the trial at the end of 2022, Heard had moved with her daughter Oonagh Paige to Spain in the hope of starting over.

An interview with Heard in 2023 confirmed her stay as she spoke of her love for the country.

And apparently, she also opted for a change of moniker to compliment her new beginnings.

It was reported by El Diario de Mallorca that the actor had been living under the pseudonym Martha Jane Cannary - the real name of old-West American sharpshooter Calamity Jane.

"The choice of this identity, which appears at the entrance of her new Mallorcan home, draws much attention," the publication wrote at the time.

"Especially as Johnny Depp always maintained that his family trace their roots to ancient Native American tribes and that his great-great-grandmother was Cherokee."

Whether or not the same name is still in use, however, remains unclear - though according to an anonymous source, the only thing on her list of current priorities is her little girl.

They told PEOPLE Magazine last year: "She is focused on raising her daughter. She spends every day with her girl.

“They stroll around, visit parks and enjoy family time. Amber is a great mom."
