It was finally revealed how Amber Heard was able to pay his legal fees for Johnny Depp libel lawsuit.
According to Popcorned Planet’s Andy Signore, Amber Heard’s home insurance company is footing the bill for her legal fees.
This is apparently how many Hollywood celebrities end up paying their legal fees in defamation cases.
I didn’t know you could do this, however, it looks like you can only do this as an individual and not as a company.
“I wonder what Amber thinks because I don’t know who pays her legal fees? That’s another mystery to me,” attorney Christopher Melcher said during Popcorned Planet’s latest live stream covering the 20th day of Johnny Depp’s libel trial.
Andy then revealed that he was actually able to find out who was paying Amber Heard’s legal fees.
Andy exclaimed, “Oh, I found that! I actually found out. Do you know who pays his legal fees? His home insurance company!

Honestly when I heard this I was a little confused because I had no idea an insurance company would ever do something like this for a client.
Andy continued, “I learned this from a Hollywood insider. Yeah it’s common practice for defamation, you may know some celebrities and people can now get their home insurance to cover it, and so his team, to their credit, figured it out. So now that’s who pays the bill for it.
He then added, “So it’s not even Johnny’s money!” Insurance pays!
This is actually a very good point.
Throughout this lawsuit, Amber Heard claimed that she could not donate the money she had promised to certain charities because Johnny Depp was suing her.
Well, it turns out she’s not even using that money for her defense, so the question is, what does she do with that money she got in the divorce settlement?
