Since losing her trial against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard has barely been seen, and it seems that this is not an accident.
According to reports, the celebrity has been going by an alias to stay anonymous, and it’s only recently come to light after she used it to rent a property in Spain.
Her newfound peace of mind is a stark contrast to the turmoil she experienced earlier this year during the most recent judicial processes related to the lingering repercussions of her marriage to Johnny Depp.
Following the 2 years they were married, the pair have spent many more years in and out of court over the divorce and a subsequent op-ed she penned about being a victim of domestic violence.
However, it does appear as if Heard is focusing on herself now, following the infamous trial that took over everyone’s lives.
The star has been seen enjoying time with her daughter, while reportedly renting a villa in Mallorca, Spain. The mansion was reportedly once on the market for 2.8 million Euros but was removed when she moved there.
The Spanish newspaper El Mundo reported that she used a different name to rent the property, presumably to not draw much attention to herself.
Locals have recognized her, but she has allegedly seamlessly blended into the community.
“Everyone here treats her like one of the others; in fact, she’s been in this town for months without anyone knowing,” a local resident told El Mundo.
The idea of anonymity must be ideal for Heard now after such a public trial. To further that anonymity, she used the name Martha Jane Cannary to rent the villa she’s staying at, according to El Mundo.
Martha Jane Cannary was the name of frontierswoman Calamity Jane, an iconic Wild West figure. As the story goes, after a lengthy career of swashbuckling and encountering crazy adventures, the frontierswoman finally traveled with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and made performances across the nation.
Despite others slandering her and questioning her decisions, Cannary set her own route and handled things in her own way. There are still varying accounts of her today, including whether she was a saint or a criminal.
After finding out about her move, some people have taken to social media to share their thoughts on her decision to lay low.
One Twitter user wrote: “Amber Heard was so afraid of being judged for abusing her ex husband and lying about being abused that she fled to Spain and tried to keep a low profile. Then she called her buddies over at TMZ to keep her “privacy” by taking photos of her.”
While another questioned: “Is she trying to avoid being served for perjury? She always complains she’s broke and wants insurance to pay her legal bills but is always traveling. I hope she’s focusing on being a mom.”
“Look world I’m trying to play mommy so people might forget I abused my ex-husband. specially called my friends from TMZ( supporters of abusers) so they can take pictures of us. Because yes I have to stay in the media, since I don’t have a job now,” a third added.
