Amber Heard has become the most-searched celebrity on Google of 2022. She has been in news following her high-profile defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's defamation case has been one of the most talked-about celebrity cases in recent times. They have been making headlines since their trial earlier this year. Now, presumably due to their high-profile legal battle, as per a recent report, which analysed data from Google search trends in 2022, Amber has been declared the most-searched celebrity on Google this year, followed closely by ex-husband Johnny.

According to CelebTattler, Amber has left behind American reality TV personality Kim Kardashian, Twitter owner Elon Musk and others, to top the list of most-searched celebs on Google in 2022. Kim, Elon, American footballer Tom Brady, actor Pete Davidson, and the late Queen Elizabeth II received third place on the list, as per the report. Britain’s longest-serving monarch died in September at the age of 96 after seven decades on the throne; she reportedly had 4.3 million Google searches per month for the year.

“This year has certainly not been lacking when it comes to celebrity news stories, whether it be Elon Musk taking over Twitter or the Don’t Worry Darling behind-the-scenes drama,” a spokesperson from CelebTattler told The Post in a statement.

Earlier this year, Johnny and Amber Heard were in a US court for a defamation trial, where the former was awarded $10.35 million in damages and she got $2 million. The US lawsuit took place during April and May, and the verdict was declared by the jury in June. It was based on the allegation that Amber had defamed Johnny by referring to herself as a ‘public figure representing domestic abuse’ in a 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post. Since then, Johnny has appealed against Amber's $2 million defamation trial payout, saying few rulings of the court 'were erroneous'.
