Amber Heard’s insurance company refused to pay damages in the defamation trial.

Amber Heard wants the insurance company to pay part of the damages she owes ex-husband Johnny Depp after the libel trial in May.

However, the company refused to pay any costs associated with Heard’s sensational libel case.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Amber Heard’s insurance company says ‘no dice’ to cover damages.

Amber Heard has a $1 million liability policy with the New York Marine and General Insurance company. She hoped her organization would pay at least part of her claims for damages, which she desperately had to settle.

The policy also covers various types of cheating, including defamation. However, there are clauses that guarantee the insurance company’s right to refuse payment.

The actress is insured under California law. Under California law, an insurance company may refuse to pay if the insured (Heard) has committed an unreasonable ‘willful’ misconduct.

NYMGI argued that the jury in the famous case not only found Heard guilty, but found that her defamation was ‘intentional’ and ‘malicious’.

What’s more, insurance companies now want the judge to declare that the Aquaman actress has planned a defamation trial in advance. The declaration would further give the company a legal basis for not being liable for any part of Heard’s legislation.

Amber Heard still owes Johnny Depp more than $8.3 million.

Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for defamation in an editorial published in the Washington Post in 2018.

The post claimed that 36-year-old actress A was a survivor of domestic violence. Depp’s name isn’t mentioned in the article, but he lost his career after being fired from high-budget films like Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean and Fantastic Beasts.

In filings with the court, Depp alleges that Heard had falsely accused Heard of being an abuser.

After a horrendous six-week trial, the jury announced its verdict on June 1. The jury unanimously voted in favor of the 59-year-old actor.

He also received $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. But Heard’s lawyers argued that the judge should dismiss the ruling on the grounds that it was “excessive” and “unable to defend.”

Nevertheless, Heard also received a $2 million prize.

However, it remains to be seen that the actress still owes Depp more than $8.3 million in damages in a defamation trial.

Meanwhile, Depp is said to be on a much-needed vacation in Europe.
