After Heard vs. Depp
Amber Heard: Your insurance won’t pay you after trial
After losing the Johnny Depp case, Amber Heard would like her insurance to pay her. But she refuses, and she wants to go to court in her place.
After the losing trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard’s next loss could be imminent. Like the American portal “TMZ” reported, Amber Heard wants her insurance company to cover some of the amount she now owes to Johnny Depp.
Heard had taken out $1 million in liability insurance with New York Marine and General Insurance Co. In fact, the policy covers all possible types of illicit conduct, including defamation, reports the portal. But there is one point that could prevent Amber Heard from getting the money.
Under applicable law, Amber Heard is not required to pay if she has committed intentional misconduct. According to the insurance company, the jury not only found Amber Heard guilty of defamation, but found her to be malicious, as “TMZ” writes.
Amber Heard: Your insurance company has filed a lawsuit
According to the Los Angeles Times, the insurance company filed a lawsuit against Amber Heard in a California court on Friday. The newspaper quoted the letter: “A real dispute has arisen and now exists between the plaintiff and Heard as to the duties and obligations owed between the plaintiff and Heard under the policy with respect to indemnity.”
Amber Heard will pay Johnny Depp $8.5 million. But that won’t be possible for Heard, her attorney explained on television in early June. When asked if the 36-year-old could pay the amount, answered Elaine Bredehoft on the “Today” show: “Oh no, definitely not.” But she shouldn’t come to that, because Heard plans to appeal. But before that, he seems to want to use other means.
