As Her Net Worth Slips Down To -$6M, Amber Heard Reportedly Yet To Pay Her Lawyers $15M, Several Millions to Insurance Companies – Will She Ever Bounce Back?

Amber Heard

Amber Heard’s net worth has been oscillating at approximately -$6 million. However, this does not exempt her from paying her due legal fees to her attorneys or the insurance companies that reportedly helped bear the costs of the defamation trial in its initial phase. Sinking under the weight of her debt, the Aquaman actress has now appealed the defamation trial’s ruling as she plans to contest the June 1 verdict by declaring it a mistrial.

In a recently surfaced news report, the dwindling fate of Amber Heard appears even more precarious as she now allegedly owes nearly several million in debt to her legal team. Elaine Bredehoft, who was Heard’s lawyer at the defamation trial held at Fairfax County, had previously made it amply clear that the actress would not be able to bear the charges payable to Johnny Depp that the court had declared in the aftermath of the verdict.

Bredehoft also came forward a few days ago announcing that Amber Heard was yet to pay her legal team the amount owed. The insurance companies that had stepped in are also adding to the mounting problems for Heard. According to reports, the actress’s insurance company, New York Marine and General Insurance Co. filed a lawsuit asking to not be held accountable to cover the actress’s legal fees and trial expenses, since “Heard’s liability is caused by the wilful acts of Heard.” 

After the insurance company backed out of paying the $1 million covering the general liability policy, the actress now allegedly owes a sum total of about $15 million to both the insurer and her former legal team.

Amber Heard Improbable to Make a Comeback After Appeal

Amber Heard has rarely surfaced after the publicly televised defamation trial held at the Fairfax County Circuit Courthouse, Virginia. On the other hand, her former husband, Johnny Depp made a very public appearance, although only as a digital projection, at the 2022 MTV VMAs, dressed as the channel’s mascot, the Moon Man. Theatrics aside, it is now popularly known that Amber Heard has lost all shreds of respect in the public arena. After the excruciating trial and her constant mockery, the actress has rarely stayed behind after the trial as she was reported to be seen in Iran for a while and now in Spain with her daughter, Oonagh Paige, and girlfriend.

With her appeal, Amber Heard seems to be gearing up to face her former husband once more in court as she contests the June 1 verdict. After letting go of Elaine Bredehoft who hadn’t been able to salvage Heard’s case during the Depp v Heard trial, the latter now has a new legal team on standby, namely David Axelrod and J. W. Brown. Whether the appeal falls through or not now doesn’t help sway the public’s opinion of Heard and her comeback even in the best imaginable scenario seems a highly unlikely, if not entirely improbable, situation.
