Amber Heard warns that she will not pay compensation to Johnny Depp

Amber Heard is collecting bad news. While her lawyers are trying by all means to

get the trial she lost to Johnny Depp overturned, she has discovered that her insurance 

company will not be responsible for paying the $10.35 million settlement to Johnny Depp.

According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the 'Aquaman' actress was ordered to pay that sum in

compensatory and punitive damages after a jury in Virginia ruled that she defamed 

the actor when she wrote an article in 2018 about being a victim of domestic abuse.

Amber had hoped that her insurance policy, for $1 million with 'New York Marine and 

General Insurance Co.' would prevent her from paying the bill, however, although the policy covers various types 

of tortious conduct, including defamation, according to California law - which governs the policy - 'an insurer is not liable to pay if the

insured committed intentional tortious conduct,' and the company noted that not only did the jury find that Amber had committed intentional defamation, it was also found to be malicious.
