Amber Heard has just revealed that her mother, Paige Heard, has died.
The ‘Aquaman’ actress announced the heartbreaking news on Instagram sharing several photos of herself with her mother. In the post, Heard also shared a message about the untimely death.
“I am heartbroken and devastated beyond belief at the loss of my mom, Paige Heard. She left us too early, clasping onto the memory of her beautiful, gentle soul. She will be missed from the very depths of our hearts forever,” the actress began.
She continued, “Her unflinching, open heart made her the most beautiful woman I had ever known. It’s hard to imagine and even more difficult to say but I feel truly lucky to have been her daughter and been given the gift of having the light she shone on everyone, fall on me for nearly 34 years.”
Amber thanked her friends and family for supporting her, and sister Whitney, through this emotional time.
“This has been an unbelievably painful time but in that, I am reminded of what survives us all, love. The kindness, support, and generosity my sister Whit and I have received from friends and family has been utterly soul-saving,” Amber wrote.
As we reported, Amber is in the middle of a two-front war against her ex-husband Johnny Depp — and her mother was included in legal documents during some of the back-and-forths in their court battles.
The Blast obtained text messages, filed in the ongoing lawsuit, where the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ star was texting with Paige Heard after the couple had broken up. In one of the text messages, Amber’s mother attempted to explain to Depp that the only reason her daughter filed for a restraining order against the actor was to protect being evicted from the couple’s apartment.
“It’s the lawyers on both sides doing this not Amber. I heard the whole story very teary – if I could just talk to Johnny. She didn’t want this. Friggin lawyers on BOTH sides!! This was not her idea, not her wishes. She was told she would be evicted and out in 30 days if she did not do this.” Paige texted Depp at the time.
It seemed clear from the text message conversation, while Amber and Johnny were still together, the ‘Pirates’ actor was close to Amber’s parents. At the time, Paige Heard ended their text chain — “I love you, son.”
