Amber Heard’s lawyer recently revealed that she is unable to pay Johnny Depp the $10.4 million she owes him. He cited sources who claim the actress is “poor” as a result of the bombshell defamation trial’s high legal bills. Heard is apparently broke due to his lavish spending as well.
According to insiders who spoke with the New York Post, the 36-year-old actress is cash-strapped as a result of her high-profile legal battle with her ex-husband. One source blamed Heard’s previous excessive spending on travel, clothes, presents, and wine. The “Aquaman” star had to transfer legal representation, according to many reports, and is relying on her homeowner’s insurance policy to fund the expense of her current attorneys in the lawsuit.
The Travelers Companies paid the majority of Heard’s attorney’s cost under the provisions of the actress’s insurance policy. Pamela Johnson, a vice president of the insurance agency, was seen in court with Heard several times throughout her trial in Fairfax, Virginia. Johnson or Travelers were unable to be reached for comment.
According to legal experts, using homeowner’s insurance policy in defamation claims is typical. While the insurance company hires and pays for the attorney, Virginia lawyer Jeremiah Denton said that most policies exclude judgement fees from coverage. Heard and Bredehoft’s representatives did not answer to The New York Post’s request for comment on the star’s financial position.
According to the Celebrity Net Worth site and other sites, Heard’s net worth as of Thursday was between $1.5 million and $2.5 million, a far cry from what she owes Depp in the wake of the jury’s decision. According to court testimony, Heard was paid $1 million for the 2018 film “Aquaman” and another $2 million for the sequel, which is set to be released next year. We’ll keep you updated on how Amber Heard manages the money she owes.
