I had never heard of Amber Heard until her pending divorce with Johnny Depp went mainstream on May 27. She’s accusing Johnny of physically and mentally abusing her for years. Terrible, if true. Meanwhile, Johnny’s close friend believes she’s blackmailing Johnny for his money. Dishonorable, if true. Whatever the truth may be, only a judge can decide the outcome.
Amber is asking Johnny to pay her attorneys’ fees and for spousal support. Makes sense since Johnny makes millions a year and they did get married on Feb 13, 2015. As a personal finance writer, I’m interested in reviewing Amber’s monthly income and expenses since they were made public and seeing if we can learn anything from it. I’ve always wondered how celebrities can afford their lifestyles on oftentimes ephemeral income streams. Let’s have a look.
