Johnny Depp has made good on Amber Heard’s promise to have her divorce settlement paid to charity.
The Hollywood actor has paid the first installment of the $7 million settlement directly to Amber’s chosen charities the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
The payments will eventually see each charity receive $3.5 million. A rep for the Pirates of the Caribbean actor said:
Amber, who accused Johnny of domestic abuse during their 15-month marriage, chose ACLU because of their focus on stopping violence against women. She has also volunteered at the hospital for the past 10 years! Depp, meanwhile, has always denied the accusations of domestic abuse.
Announcing her decision to donate the money, Amber stated:
Meanwhile, Amber, 30 and Johnny, 53, also released a joint statement, saying:
“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity.”
Well, we’re not so sure after having seen Amber’s secretly-recorded video of Johnny Depp at home with her but, hey, if dropping the accusations means $7 million goes to help others, should we complain?
What do you think?
