Aquaman actress Amber Heard did not seem to have a care in mind as she played with her daughter on Sunday — even as she continues to fight to get insurance to cover $8 million in legal fees she owes her ex, Johnny Depp.
The embattled actress went makeup-free on her outing to a playground in Palma de Mallorca, Spain on Sunday, wearing a black tank top and white ankle-length pants with a simple pair of flip flops.
Heard, 36, even let her hair down on Sunday as she caught her 1-year-old daughter Oonagh, whom she shares with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, from a slide and played with her in the Mediterranean city.
She seems to be having fun on the trip, taking in the sights of the Spanish city with a small entourage, even as she continues to owe her ex-husband Johnny Depp over $10 million in legal fees following their highly-publicized defamation trial.
The actress has recently changed lawyers in an attempt to force two insurance firms to pick up the remainder of the multimillion dollar bill for her libel payout.
She is currently represented by David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown in her appeal of that verdict.

The actress has also recently hired Kirk Pasich on her legal team in an attempt to get multiple insurance companies to cover her legal bills, which may surpass $15 million, according to Puck News.
Puck claims that Heard’s expenses soared over $8 million before the Virginia trial even began. Heard’s team appears to want homeowner’s insurance to cover those bills.
The battle concerns Travelers Commercial Insurance Company and New York Marine General Insurance Company.
Travelers initially sued New York Marine in July 2021 to gain reimbursement for half of what it spent on defending a client that turned out to be Heard.
Heard’s homeowners policy with Travelers covered ‘libel’ to the point of about $500,000, while New York Marine had issued her a general liability policy for $1 million.

The crux of the suit was Travelers believing Heard had the right to pick her own lawyers, while New York Marine disagreed, believing the case was ‘fairly straight forward’. A judge agreed with New York Marine’s desire to use local, cheaper attorneys.
Travelers had doubts about New York Marine’s appointed lawyers Timothy McEvoy and Sean Patrick Roche, arguing they ‘piggy-backed’ on the work of Heard attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Elaine Charlson Bredehoft.
New York Marine, for their part, claimed their attorneys were frozen out by Kaplan and Bredehoft.
They now want $621,693 paid back in exchange for their contribution to Heard’s defense fund because their lawyers were kept out of various legal proceedings.
The insurers are currently suing Heard to avoid contributing to the libel settlement that has the Aquaman star set to pay Depp about $10.35 million using a California law preventing insurers from covering ‘willful acts’.
Pasich is representing Heard to try and deal with this situation on her behalf.
Heard may be responsible for the entire judgement if it survives her appeal, as Travelers will try to avoid paying it if Depp could prove she made false statements.
Heard was ordered to pay her ex-husband more than $10 million in damages at the end of an explosive defamation trial in June. She is pictured here walking with Oonagh around Spain on Sunday

At the end of the defamation trial, Depp, 59, was awarded $10million to $15 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.
The judge later capped the damages at the state’s maximum of $350,000 leaving Depp with a total of $8.35 million.
Meanwhile, Heard won one of her three countersuit claims related to statements made by Depp’s lawyer suggesting the actress and her friends had trashed their apartment before calling the police.
The actress was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages out of the $100 million she sought.

A day after Heard’s team filed an appeal, Depp’s team did the same to overturn the couple million the actor owes to his ex-wife.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor’s team said they filed an appeal to ensure ‘all information is considered by the court’ while they return to consider Heard’s appeal.
Before filing an appeal, Heard’s attorney asked the judge to throw out the decision and declare a mistrial. It was argued that one of the jurors on the case should not have been eligible to serve because his summons was intended for his father, who had the same name and lived at the same address.
Judge Penny Azcarate shot down the request claiming there was no ‘evidence of fraud or wrongdoing’ by the juror and that the jury’s verdict should stand.’
