Amber Heard made an unexpected and sudden exit from an awards gala last night because of a medical emergency ... TMZ has learned.

Heard was scheduled to be honored at the unite4:humanity gala in Beverly Hills Friday night but left midway for what we're told was a medical emergency. Our source says Heard became seriously ill during the event, but it's unclear if she went to the hospital.
