July 11, 2022 (New Delhi): Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case is making headlines daily with new updates and controversies. Reports now state that Amber is facing some issues with her insurance company. The defamation case which revolves around Johnny Depp and Amber Heard connected everyone and still it is keeping everyone hooked. The much-publicised trial has grabbed everyone’s attention as both the stars made some serious accusations against each other. From Amber accusing him of physically harassing her to Johnny Depp accusing her of violent behaviour – both the stars made some very serious allegations in court. And still there is no end to this. Now, that the court has ordered Amber Heard to pay a huge cost to Johnny Depp in damages, the insurance company has reportedly refused to support the actress in this matter.
According to some reports, the insurance company has refused to pay for Amber Heard by stating that actor Johnny Depp was ‘willfully’ and ‘maliciously’ defamed by her. Not one, but two insurance companies have moved to court and filed a suit against actress Amber Heard to absolve themselves from further paying for damages. As reported by Law and Crime, New York Marine and General Insurance Company have filed a suit against Amber on Friday in the US District Court for the Central District of California. Reports suggest that the actress had a $1 million liability policy with the company, with which she could have paid a portion of the damages she owes Johnny. As the verdict in trial, Amber Heard was asked by the court to pay $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. The insurance company, however, could refuse the payout, if Amber was found to have committed ‘willful’ and ‘malicious’ misconduct, say the reports.
