She probably has insurance but nowhere near $50 million in coverage :lol: ! Lawsuits aren't based on how money the alleged perpetrator has, but on the amount of the alleged damage. If damage is shown to be intentional or malicious, much larger damages may be awarded additionally as a penalty. Her lawyers will drop her if she doesn't pay them as agreed. Her problem.

If her vicious acts against Johnny - more of which sadly seem to be coming out daily - are proven, I hope Johnny gets as much money as possible from her in any way possible; at least $33,333,333 plus his attorneys fees from the Australia dog incident, the divorce and all his related defamation lawsuits. Given the declarations attesting that she lied to US Immigration about her assistant Savannah's status and was shown to try to suborn perjury from Kevin to get the dogs into Australia illegally, I hope those entities charge her.

To go back a little re my post about Amber being powerful, The Blast's article from a couple days ago had this from Adam Waldman:
Ms. Heard remains propped up by hoax-enablers including Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid the Sun and her corporate and ‘philanthropic’ partners.
I meant that for now she probably has the support of other people and entities that want to see Johnny silenced: TMG, the Bloom lawyers, ACLU, #metoo, People Magazine (and any other media or people who may be subject to JD suing them if he wins The Sun and the Heard lawsuits), Musk, Franco, Ari Emanuel was mentioned during the TMG or Bloom matters, Heard's pack of grifter friends and, if gossip is true, her drug connection and his other Hollywood clients who don't want to be exposed.

As for blu checkmarks not supporting him publicly, they're probably afraid of being attacked as anti #metoo or misogynistic. Also, I agree with whoever wrote that JD probably asked them not to: she sued Stanhope and "20 other John Does." Johnny got those dropped as part of the divorce settlement. If JD insisted on paying the costs of that legal work, as he probably did for his friends and sister, he probably doesn't want anyone else getting sued by the nasty witch. She knows this as well, and it probably inflates her ego. But JD'S evidence is sure making a lot of noise! :dancingpirate:

I thought the truenorth180 man was the only person who checked on the island year round. Cool that lovely Tara lives there all year. (I would love that; the best part getting to help JD and interact with him once in a while!)

Heard thinks she's above "the help," the law, and everyone else once they're no longer useful. Can't wait to see her fall.

Personal Insurance won't pay for criminal acts committed by the policy holder.
Professional Insurance may pay for criminal acts committed by an employee (eg theft from clients) but that doesn't seem applicable and would not pay the criminal.
As yet, there is no criminal case against Heard but an insurance company is not going to pay millions in legal fees or damages if they can find a reason to not pay.

So Heard can't expect her insurance company to pay for her misdeeds. She will have to think of another plan.

Thanks for the info! Glad to see ET fairly telling his side, although they do also follow up with her attorney's denial. Can't help but think that extremely private Johnny must be upset that, in order to defend his reputation, he has to reveal all this extremely personal and sometimes embarrassing info to the world. It's like further abuse, but unfortunately it needs to be done thanks to her.

Weird that during their 12/29 fight, she would scream and lunge at him, then she'd calm down and they'd hug, and then he'd say he was leaving for a while, at which she'd get hysterical again, and this happened multiple times per Tara. Amber was obviously having some sort of "episode."

I am just sick after reading these accounts of how she tortured him and hurt him. It's so disgusting. His poor kids, knowing how horrible she was to their Dad. Whatever is wrong with her, I don't know. But how he put up with her nonsense and cruelty is amazing to me. Most people would have chucked her into the ocean. Seriously, she needs to be admitted to a psychiatric facility after the court case.

Funny you brought that up because I have a feeling she will check into some sort of mental wellness hospital to delay the trial but blame it on Johnny.

I'm a little confused: Tara said Johnny's nose was gashed by Heard throwing a lacquer thinner can on 12/29/15. Now I'm seeing Twitter comments saying Heard admitted to this in a deposition, but the deposition Brian and others are citing is the one where Heard admits she hit him with a paint thinner can on 12/15/15 (day before Corden show). So, were there 2 incidents of her hitting him in the head with paint thinner cans? I can't imagine the attorney got the date wrong.

I suppose there were a lot of similar incidents. It seems she liked to throw things or punching someone. She thinks she can do whatever she wants and the others have to do what she wants.

Yes Blair Berk did get the date wrong during the deposition.
Berk asked "Did you throw on May 15 -- I'm Sorry - December 30, 2015 a can of paint thinner while on the island of Exuma at Johnny Depp and hit him in the head?"
then there was a number of objections from Heard's lawyer until Berk asked "Did you or did you not throw a can at Johnny Depp on December 15,2015?"
Witness (Heard) "No".

This was clearly a mistake by Blair Berk that allowed Heard to truthfully answer no when she realised the date was wrong.

Earlier in the deposition there is an audio tape where Depp says "But punching me in the jaw you did?" Heard replies "I OK I'm sorry".
This is as close to an admission that she hit him that I can see.

15 December 2015 was in LA when Heard claimed Depp pulled out her hair and broke her nose.

Could there have been two separate incidents of two different “paint” cans - one lacquer and the other thinner - being thrown and hitting Johnny? One incident in LA and the other at his island? Johnny painted in both locations.

In this sworn AH deposition - appears to be Exhibit A of Johnny’s filing - the question references December 15, 2015. Perhaps this is part of what really happened on that date, only Berk got the locations wrong not the dates. If not, what is this Exhibit A? Who are the two employees present who witnessed the December 15th incident?

I have read the Johnny's filing and Exhibit A. Pages 65-67 is the part of Heard deposition transcript I am referring to
I really think Blair Berk said the wrong date. When she first asked the question, she said May 15 then corrected herself to December 30. In the following interruptions and objections, it is not hard to think she misspoke when the asked the question again.

The dates for this incident (and other incidents) seem confusing. I hope the lawyers get the dates of the incidents straightened out before court. Towards the end of Tara's statement she talks about Johnny, Amber and nurse Debbie Lloyd being on the island from August to December of 2014. I had to go back and read it again to make sure it said 2014. It is really confusing because the incidents don't seem to be in the order of the date they happened.

The terms paint thinner and paint lacquer can be used for the same thing. They are not the same thing but they are both used to thin paint. One person might call it lacquer and someone else might call it thinner.
