Amber Heard Sued By Insurance Company Citing "Willful Acts", Refusing to Pay $1,000,000

Just when you thought Amber Heard was going to take her loss and go home, another bombshell has been dropped. Now Heard is facing a legal battle with her own insurance company. New York Marine and General Insurance Co. filed a U.S. California district court lawsuit against the "Aquaman" actress Friday, seeking to avoid having to pay Heard after her defamation lawsuit loss against Johnny Depp.

The insurer said in the lawsuit it doesn't believe it has an obligation to provide a legal defense to Heard. Amber Heard wants her insurance company to cover a portion of the verdict Johnny Depp won against her, but the insurance co. says Amber's own conduct allows them to tell her to pound sand. — TMZ (@TMZ) July 9, 2022

"An actual controversy has arisen and now exists between Plaintiff, on the one hand, and Heard, on the other hand, with regard to the duties and obligations owed between Plaintiff and Heard under the Policy with respect to indemnity" of her actions in the defamation case writes the insurer in the suit.

Although not all is lost for Heard, Travelers Commercial Insurance "has spent and continues to spend substantial sums" for her legal fees under a home insurance policy provided to Heard in 2018, per court filings. Travelers is now pursuing New York Marine for their share of the sum.

In 2019, Mr. Depp brought a $50 million libel lawsuit for Heard's December 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post. The op-ed described many disparaging things about an unknown man. Mr. Depp was never mentioned explicitly, yet he asserted that the column was clearly describing him.
