It’s been weeks since American actress Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s nail-biting trial but many eyes are still on Heard who insists that she should not have lost the case to her former husband. The actress was told to pay millions for her defamatory statements and reportedly hasn’t made a single payment yet.
She has however been spotted shopping at a discount store in the Hamptons called TJ Maxx.
Aquaman star Amber Heard, 36, is seemingly pinching all of her pennies and has resorted to discount store shopping. The actress and her sister Whitney Henriquez were recorded by a shopper who shared the footage with US publication TMZ.
After noting that she was being recorded, Heard quickly abandoned her shopping cart and went about her business.
Meanwhile, the footage which has been circulated online, has been highly criticised by social media users who think that Heard may have preplanned the entire thing.
According to many of them, Heard probably leaked her location in hopes that she would “get some sympathy” for shopping in a discount store.

This sentiment has been echoed by many netizens who recall that Heard’s lawyer had previously said that the actress did not have the money to pay Depp.
Responding to a question about whether the actress had the means to cover the judgment handed down by the jury, her lawyer Elaine Bredehoft said “Oh no, absolutely not.”
Netizens chip in
“She is still trying to get sympathy. We ALL watched the trial unfold in real-time! We all know the truth! I don’t know what she is trying to accomplish. 🤦🏻♀️ #amberheard #johnnydepp #truthwillALWAYSwin”
“Please notice only TMZ pic and videos are on news articles they are based on TMZ. It’s a PR stunt. She trying to reach an audience that may have not seen the trial. She is not poor. Make her pay.”
