Amber Heard Not Cause of Johnny Depp ‘Vajoliroja’ Yacht Sale


Recent reports claiming that Amber Heard forced Johnny Depp to sell his $47.6 million yacht, named “Vajoliroja,” in order to move on from his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, have turned out to be a hoax after all. The Hollywood actress was slammed by multiple outlets last week when it was alleged that the family yacht, named after Depp’s children and his ex, had been auctioned off under Heard’s demands.

US Magazine was very vocal when their sources stressed that Heard’s pushy attitude over the yacht ended up forcing Depp to sell it once and for all. It was then added by another insider that the 29-year-old’s alleged ongoing feud with the actor’s ex-girlfriend played a significant part as to why Heard was determined to get rid of the yacht.

However, what many of these outlets failed to mention was that Depp’s multi-million dollar yacht had been up for sale since January 2013. This would heavily contradict those stories, which openly claim that Heard’s supposed feud with Paradis was the reason for the sale. Why would she wait three years before making the decision to sell off her husband’s yacht? What would have been her reasons behind it, and why would she make that kind of a decision to begin with? These are questions that should have been considered.

There could not have been any hard feelings coming from Paradis’ side, as one source stated, because she would have already been aware of the auction back when it was originally listed in 2013, not 2015. Furthermore, it seems odd that US Magazine would shed light on the yacht sale two years after its original listing, seemingly only to drag Heard into the mix of things.

But then again, it has been very apparent in recent months that Heard is a favorite with the tabloids, who have also gone on to report that the Hollywood beauty supposedly dislikes Paradis. It almost seems as if news outlets, including US Magazine, have tried to top one another on who can come up with the most sensationalized article. After all, if their sources are so in the know of things, how could they not be aware of the fact that the yacht has been for sale since 2013?

Instead of looking for a reason to slam Heard in the story and bring negative attention her way, what these so-called “sources” should do is find out why a yacht owned by Depp still has not sold in over two years. That probably would not happen, because writing factual information with research and a certain requirement for reporting the truth consists of hard work, a concept of which these outlets are unaware, if the false Heard yacht story is any indication.

Heard has never publicly bashed Paradis, despite reports saying otherwise. The actress has also never shared any sort of distaste for the mother of her husband’s two children, Lily-Rose, 16, and Jack John, 13. Lastly, recent photos of Rose and Heard shopping together prove that there is no tension between daddy’s new wife and the kids. In fact, it just goes to show that so-called sources really have no clue when it comes to factual reporting. By the way, the yacht is still for sale.

    She never legally changed her name. The closest thing to it is the thank you from Johnny in Hollywood Vanpires insert where he thanks “lily-rose, Jack and Amber Depp” I have no doubt that she answers to both but no she never took it all the way and legally changed it. That being said it makes no difference because in this modern time there is no need for a woman to lose her name because she got a life partner. That is an old and oppressive ideology. Give the kids the name sure but you no longer have to lose your own identity souly based on marriage.

    The yacht belongs to another owner since two years ago and it has another name. Maybe its new owner is solding it already because he couln’d afford it.

    • May   October 9, 2015 at 12:51 pm

      I mean selling.

    Dear mkxxiii…a few months ago there were numerous stories on line that Amber decided to show Johnny she was going to be ‘in it for the long haul’ so she changed her last name to Depp. These stories were out there for days. Then Johnny went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and made a big point of setting the record straight that Amber DID NOT take his name. So, I guess when it means enough to him, he’ll go on talk shows and ‘deny silly rumors’.

    • May   October 9, 2015 at 12:36 pm

      Of course all these rumors are ridiculous. But Johnny and Kimmel were just joking. In fact she took Johnny’s name (Amber Heard Depp – not Depp Heard as kimmel said, joking of course). But the rumor said she would take his name artisticly and she took it only legally. Whe she is not working, not being “the actress” Amber Heard, she is just Amber Depp.

    It seems to me that if there was anything substantial to say about Amber Heard, there would be no need for these dumb stories. She has to keep her name in the papers, so to speak, so either her publicist puts out news that she’s the cause of this drama or that drama or there’s a story defending her. Let’s wait until she actually does something and talk about that. Lily Rose is burning up the Paris fashion scene, so Amber has to get her name out there by hook or by crook. Sad.

    • May   October 9, 2015 at 12:41 pm

      She doesn’t need this. And her friends just hate this kind of stories that media makes up about her. And is Vanessa who is using her own daughter. Amber has a life, a husband and a career.

    Ok, I’m not going into how wrong this article is. Here is a thought, quit reporting. *Breaking News* Celebrity couple surrounded by rumors. Just let them live. Why do people feel the need to be in everyone else’s business? We have basically a world war in the mix and the important story of the day on my feed is about a boat that sold years ago. Grow up.(rant over, thanks for reading)

  8. Wrong Info   October 7, 2015 at 10:52 am

    The boat was sold some time ago and it’s new name is Amphitrite. Lily Rose is filming a movie in France and Vanessa is back and forth between LA and France. They have not moved there.

  9. Thoughts   October 7, 2015 at 9:08 am

    After the false PEOPLE report about them back in April I will never take anything written about them seriously.Sure gossip is fun but that’s all.I remember since they made their first appearance as a couple back in April 2013 there have always been stories about them.I can’t even count how many time it has been reported that they are breaking up.And don’t let me get started with cheating rumours.Tabloids aren’t even trying to print something believable anymore.Its always the same over and over with a few changes.I think that the fact that neither Depp or Heard have social media and that they never respond to rumours leads to a gossip heaven.The tabloids know that whatever they write no one(except if it’s something really really serious)will come up with a statement like Clooney does for example.Due to that unfortunately I think that the tabloids have taken a huge advantage and they have brainwashed the people about Johnny,Amber and their life.Johnny’s the bad guy with a midlife crisis and Amber is a controlling b*tch and Vanessa is a saint.But in real life there is no good and bad like in fairytales.Sometimes people just grow apart and move on but of course that doesn’t sell papers does it?These trashy magazines have made serious damage to Johnny’s image.Although I know he doesn’t care they deserve to be sued.But,despite their lies Johnny and Amber will continue being married and who knows even start a family together soon.

    Always looking for someone to blame. When he split with Kate Moss, everybody blamed Vanessa. Now they all want to hate on Amber. Grow up, people.

  11. CalGal74   October 7, 2015 at 8:14 am

    OK this article was correct until the statement that Amber gets along with Depp’s kids due to recent pics of her shopping with Lily Rose. Those pics are over a year old, before Depp even married Amber. Lily Rose is now living in Paris with her mother—possibly to pursue a modeling/acting career, but no one knows for sure, while Jack remains in LA in with Depp. No one knows what is happening in their personal lives and as this article points out, so much misinformation in the tabloids.. That Celeb Dirty Laundry site is the worst—has a grudge against Depp for some reason & uses these ridiculous theories about him to get hits to their site. Even worse, instead of investigative reporting, other sites, even mainstream ones, jump on their innuendo & report it as fact. I think it’s more a comment on the sad state of reporting more than anything else. Bottom line—Depp married Amber & Vanessa has moved on. Other than that, everything else is speculation.

    That’s a lot of tabloid articles there. Frankly their actual relationship is just between them in my opinion but alas the tabloids keep feeding it. I laughed about the yacht being at the wedding because he had sold it over a year before. i did love the Native American tents on the island though!

  13. HazelSally   October 7, 2015 at 12:50 am

    Just as a matter of interest–Johnny Depp ended his relationship with Vanessa Paradis in 2012, or at least it was reported as such in multiple articles, not all tabloids. Not long afterwards, he stepped out with Amber on his arm as his new girlfriend and later fiance. It was never clear to me whether he really “left” Vanessa for Heard, or if he and Vanessa had just called it quits on their own, having admitted the relationship had reached its end. This is not to say he hadn’t been actually SEEING Heard in 2012, or at least interested in her. But if the relationship with Vanessa was almost over anyway–why not pursue the next chapter in life upon acknowledging the end of the previous chapter? That said, while Amber may not have been the actual reason for the breakup, it probably was very hard for Amber to deal with the fact that the mother of Johnny’s kids would no doubt HAVE to remain a part of Johnny’s life, ex or no. Johnny said himself many times that there was no way he and Vanessa could really leave each other’s lives, because of the kids. I’m not saying this to suggest Amber is everything the tabloids say she is–controlling, whatever the latest label is–but she could have been uncomfortable with Johnny keeping things that represented his relationship with Vanessa, since she already had to adjust to having Vanessa as a part of Johnny’s life for the rest of time. It’s possible she could have expressed discomfort back in 2012 about the yacht before it went on sale in 2013.

    Of course? I was confused in the first place reading about the yacht sale, because shortly after Johnny and Amber got married, it was all over the news that Johnny had given Amber the yacht as a “wedding gift.” In fact, he is supposed to have renamed the yacht “Amphitrite” himself! It was also reported that the actual wedding on the Bahamas Island ended up with guests SLEEPING on that yacht, as there was no room on the island for people to sleep.

    Who knows what the real story actually is. (Sighs!) I guess either Amber, Johnny, or both, will probably come out with an article, or an appearance on a talk show, denying any of the above and trying to set the record straight…until, of course, the next tabloid story idea hits, and becomes news!!!

    • mkxxiii   October 7, 2015 at 9:48 am

      Johnny Depp don’t deny silly stories in talk shows, c’mon! you know a lot about their story and you don’t know he doesn’t deny rumors at all?. The silly stories about the yacht at the wedding were only because the tabloids didn’t know it was sold long time ago and the name changed but even People Magazine in a report wrote that they knew the yacht was sold.
      Johnny never set a foot again in the Vajoliroja after their break up. The same day of the split was announced there were pictures around the web with the yacht without it’s name (the “Vajoliroja” removed). The yacht was only for charter trips since 2012 and then sold. I doubt it was because Amber and not because Johnny wasn’t interested on it anymore. Even if Amber and Johnny were together since 2011, they were hiding until 2013 so i doubt Johnny or Amber even contemplated at all any chance to go in a trip in the yacht as it was easy to follow and full of paparazzis all the time.

      Also to add, he almost sell “Plan de la Tour” under the same thinking and reportedly (he told in an interview) changed his opinion after his recent vacations in there with Amber. So, or that woman is bipolar and, by one side, obliges him to sell his yacht because it was a reminder if his ex and, on the other side, stayed with him and for some reason help to convince him that he couldn’t let go the house he shared with the same ex? …or to sell the yacht and the house was all Johnny’s thinking and Amber is just the favorite “guinea pig” of the tabloids

  14. Confused12345   October 6, 2015 at 10:24 pm

    Oh I completely agree. Most people know it’s been sold since 2013. My comment was towards the author of the article. Two opposing articles by the same author is just hilarious to me. “Let me just snatch up this story….. Wait I forgot to do my own research” “Let us pretend I didn’t write the first one. Maybe no one will notice” lol. Maurice, you should have done this article first. At least someone finally put a stopper in the silly story though. It’s amazing how so few research their stories before writing them instead of after.

  15. mkxxiii   October 6, 2015 at 9:38 pm

    It’s true. But the yacht was sucessfully sold in the same 2013 and the new owner changed the name from “Vajoliroja” to “Amphitrite”. And the people that don’t believe it, just check the fact by yourself and go to the website Burgess or Boat International and there’s the news of the yacht “on sale” in 2013 or go to website of the now “amphitrite” former “vajoliroja” that’s a charter

      My comment was only to the author because he wrote both articles.

  16. Confused12345   October 6, 2015 at 7:49 pm

    Well now you just have two opposing stories. Why believe either? Sept 27 you jumped on the wagon of she did it.
