Johnny Depp has accused ex-wife Amber Heard of lying about donating the 7 million dollars she made from their divorce settlement to charity.
Heard promised to donate the money to the Children’s Hospital in LA and the American Civil Liberties Union, after declaring that she didn’t want the cash after their split back in 2016.
Depp, after chasing the two organisations up in a bad to find out just how much she had given them, is now accusing the actress of lying about the donation. Hospital documents have suggested that they received a total of 100 thousand dollars, rather than the 3.5 million – as promised by Heard.
However, the ACLU refused to cooperate. The bosses at the children’s hospital even wrote to Heard in June of 2019, to check if the pledge will not be fulfilled. Depp’s legal team says that these documents prove Heard was lying about the giveaway, both in media interviews and her testimony.
To be exact, Heard reported in her witness statement, ‘I remained financially independent from him the whole time we were together, and the entire amount of my divorce settlement was donated to charity’.
Meanwhile, Heard’s legal team have described the move as a ‘desperate attempt’ to drag her name and accused Depp of ‘planting’ the story, sharing, ‘Mr Depp’s effort to plant stories in the media criticising Amber for not yet fulfilling all the donations she pledged to charity is yet another desperate attempt to divert attention from the UK Court’s findings’.
Bredehoft added, ‘However, Amber has been delayed in that goal because Mr Depp filed a lawsuit against her, and consequently, she has been forced to spend millions of dollars defending Mr Depp’s false accusations against her.’
Looks like this drama won’t be ending anytime soon…what do you think about this?
