Insurance refuses to pay: are you broke?

Things are not looking good for Amber Heard financially. After losing the defamation lawsuit against her ex-partner, Johnny Depp, claims for damages of several million dollars flutter in her house. According to her lawyers, she cannot comply with the request.

Depp sued his former partner over a 2018 article she wrote for the Washington Post about her experiences as a survivor of domestic violence. According to her lawyers, Depp was falsely accused of being an abuser.

On June 1, 2022, the jury found in her favor and trouble began for Amber Heard.

Civil liability insurance does not see the obligation to pay

To protect herself, Heard purchased $1 million liability insurance from the New York Marine and General Insurance Company. This should cover at least part of the damage, according to the TMZ news portal.

However, the insurance company is refusing to pay any part of the $8.3 million in damages it owes her ex-husband, according to the report.

Amber Heard is ‘mischievous’

The policy covers unlawful conduct of various kinds, including defamation. However, a clause now could be fatal for her, reports TMZ.

Under California law, the state where the insurance policy was issued, payments can be denied if Heard is accused of “willful” misconduct, the company says.

The New York Marine Company says that in its ruling, the judge ruled that Amber’s defamation was both “intentional” and “malicious.”

Trial is followed by a financial hard landing

Rumors are circulating that Amber Heard is already broke. A source told the New York Post that she was in a financial fiasco.

She was recently seen shopping at an American fashion discount store. The footage showed Heard wearing a simple oversized white T-shirt and a pair of blue jeans as she browsed the store for clothes.

Big mistake: does the megathread go to the second round?

Amber Heard doesn’t want to let the lost process sit still and is holding on to the last straw. Heard’s attorneys asked for a new trial in the libel case Friday because the wrong person was on the jury that ruled against her.

Heard’s team filed court papers in Virginia “based on additional facts uncovered,” according to media reports. His attorneys allege that two people with the same last name lived in the Virginia home where the jury summons was sent in April.
