Amber Heard declared ‘homeless’ amid insurance lawsuit drama


A legal dispute is ongoing between Amber Heard, New York Marine, and General Insurance Co. Attorneys for Heard, at Travelers Commercial Insurance, have filed a new claim stating that the court lacks jurisdiction to continue with the lawsuit since Heard was not a resident of the United States when New York Marine sued her in July 2022 and she still does not own a home in the country.

The filing states that Heard is a “United States citizen, but has no domicile in any State” and therefore she is “stateless.”

The attorneys claim that the continuation of the case is prejudicial to Heard’s defense.

Travelers has requested that a hearing, originally scheduled for November 3, be moved to December 1 or another convenient date.

New York Marine, however, counters that Heard was actually a resident of the United States at the time the Marines sued her and they haven’t been given any proof to the contrary.

Additionally, they do not want their scheduled depositions to be postponed.


As per the recent developments, Amber Heard is legally homeless. She sold her residence in Yucca Valley, California in July 2022, and is currently renting a house in the village of Costitx in Mallorca, Spain.

She does not own any properties in the United States and is therefore legally homeless and stateless.

According to the US Department of State’s website, a stateless person is someone who does not enjoy citizenship in any country.

The dispute between Heard, New York Marine, and Travelers Commercial Insurance involves settling who is responsible for paying the damages.

As per the verdict in June 2022, Heard owes $10 million to Johnny Depp and relied on her insurance providers, New York Marine and Travelers Commercial Insurance, to pay part of the damages as per their liability insurance policy.

New York Marine, however, claimed that they were not obligated to follow through on the policy as the liability was caused by Heard’s “wilful acts.”

Travelers filed a lawsuit against New York Marine in 2021, claiming that the latter neglected to “reimburse Travelers for half of the attorney’s fees, costs, and expenses of defending their mutual insured” in the Depp case.

New York Marine countered that it is not liable to pay Travelers as the attorney the company wanted Heard to hire, Cameron McEvoy, stopped representing her in November 2020 and was not present at the trial.

In July 2022, New York Marine filed a second lawsuit against Amber Heard, seeking a declaratory judgment to absolve them of any legal obligation to compensate Heard.

The recent “stateless” claim by Travelers has been made against this case.

According to a filing made in April, the Depp-Heard case racked up over $8 million in legal fees and expenses.

Netizens have commented on the situation, with some pointing out that not owning a home is not adequate ground for exemption and that Heard can still be sued in absentia.

Others have referred to the “stateless” claim as the “wildest interpretation” they have encountered.
