AMBER Heard has revealed her beloved mom Paige has died.
The 34-year-old actress said she was "devastated beyond belief" as she paid emotional tribute to Paige – who was born in 1956 – on Instagram on Sunday.
Amber wrote: "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. 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 then thanked her family and friends for helping her and her sister Whit during this "unbelievably painful time".
The Aquaman actress penned: "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 shared a black and white photo of her and Paige smiling and hugging, as well as a throwback of a young Paige holding baby Amber in her arms.
The cause of Paige's death is not yet known.
The Rum Diary star's friends flocked to the comments to offer their condolences, with Cara Delevingne putting a love heart and actress Andie MacDowell commenting: "I’m so sorry for your loss dear one."
Amber often shared photos with Paige on her Instagram, with the most recent being a selfie with her mom and her sister Whit celebrating International Women's Day.
She captioned the snap: "Happy International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to all you badass women warriors out there."
Paige Heard (nee Parsons) raised Amber and Whit in Austin, Texas, with her husband, David Clinton Heard. Amber left Texas at the age of 17 to pursue acting in New York.
Whit also paid tribute to Paige, writing on Instagram: "There are very few pains sharper than losing your momma… beyond heartbroken to say that I’ve lost mine.
"Words can’t express the amount of gratitude I will forever feel to have had her in my world and for being my first and my most true example of kindness and love… there have been so many people in our world that have pulled out all the stops to show up for amber and I, and I will spend the rest of my days trying to make up for it, but for now, just know how thankful we are… for those of you who are able to, call your mom."
She added: "Tell her you love her. Thank her for everything. And apologize for all the bulls**t you put her thru. But most importantly, tell her you love her."
Paige's tragic death comes amid Amber's bitter legal battle with her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
Amber – who is dating cinematographer Bianca Butti – claimed Johnny became enraged, threw a cell phone at her face, and ripped out chunks of her hair during a fight in 2015.
The 56-year-old actor maintains he never laid a finger on his 33-year-old ex wife and has accused her of fabricating her version of events to gain notoriety.
The exes are duking it out in court after Heard penned an op-ed of her own detailing her experiences as a domestic violence survivor, to which Depp responded by filing a $50 million defamation lawsuit.
Their case will be tried in front of a jury later this year.
