A few hours ago, CelebTattler unveiled the most searched celebrities in 2022 on Google. The data was released a few weeks before the end of 2022. Here are the top 10 searched names on Google.
The first two places on the list went to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. The number of searches surpassed 5.6 million per month.
The Hollywood stars were the central topic of gossip in 2022 due to their legal dispute, and trial that was aired for the audience.
Depp sued his ex-wife Heard in March 2019 for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed under Heard’s byline.
However, in his filings and repeatedly on the stand during the trial earlier this year, he declared he was the one who was abused in the couple’s relationship.
Heard countersued Depp for $100 million in 2020. That countersuit came months before Depp’s UK libel case against the Rupert Murdoch-owned "The Sun" tabloid for calling him a “wife beater” proved a dramatic flameout in November 2020.
Regarding the third place, it was for Queen Elizabeth II. There are several reasons for the late queen to be a top-searched entry such as the celebration of her platinum jubilee.
However, the main reason for increasing the popularity of the queen is her death, last September at the age of 96 years old.
