Amber Heard who announced earlier this month the $7 million she would be receiving from her estranged husband, Johnny Depp would be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union fulfilled that promise.
Her estranged husband, Johnny Depp’s reps confirmed on Thursday that he had sent “the first of multiple installments” to both organisations directly rather than give the money to Amber. His rep
“Following Amber Heard’s announcement that her divorce settlement was to be divided equally and gifted to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, two exceptionally deserving and important charities. “Johnny Depp has sent the first of multiple instalments of those monies to each charity in the name of Amber Heard, which when completed will honor the full amount of Ms. Heard’s pledge. Ms. Heard’s generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected.”
However, Amber’s team reacted at the donation by telling TMZ:
“If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honour the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber.
We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years. “Anything less would be a transparent attempt by Johnny’s counsel, Laura Wasser and Patti Glaser, to reduce their client’s true payment by half under the guise of newfound concern for charities that he has never previously supported.”
