Amber Heard reportedly has problems with her insurance company: she probably doesn’t want to pay the millions from Depp’s trial…

Amber Heard, 36, could face another legal battle, this time with her insurance company.

It is said to be around a million dollars. Apparently, the company does not see any obligation to pay.

Amber Heard: Another lawsuit on the way?

As a result, she suffered losses.

Did Amber Heard act ‘intentionally’?

The jury found Amber Heard guilty of defamation at the June trial. The penalty was 15 million dollars (about 14 million euros), but due to Virginia law, Heard is only fined 10.35 million dollars (about 9.66 million euros). Depp was also fined $2 million. The jury found that a former Depp lawyer slandered the actress.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Heard’s insurance company now claims in court documents that it is not obligated to pay Heard. The reason: California law states that “an insurer is not liable for a loss caused by an intentional act of the insured,” the suit says. And that’s what the jury found in the libel trial…
