Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s ugly stories keep surfacing one after another. The angry ex-lovers are presently locked in a vicious legal battle in Virginia. Johnny denied being abusive to Amber and filed a defamation case against her. She has filed a $100 million countersuit and all of that is playing out in court.
Amber Heard has acknowledged to not paying her $7 million pledged donation, despite previously claiming to have done so. Because ‘Johnny sued me’ for $50 million, Heard claimed she had yet to send over the cash to the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez asked Heard: “Sitting here today, Ms. Heard you still haven’t donated the $7 million divorce settlement to charity, isn’t that right?”
The Aquaman star responded: “Incorrect. I pledged the entirety, $7 million to charity and I intend to fulfill….”
The lawyer cut into Heard’s answer, saying: “Ms. Heard that wasn’t my question. Please try to answer my question. As of today, you have not paid $3.5 million dollars of your own money to the ACLU?”
Heard replied: “I have not.”
Vasquez added: “And as of today you have not paid $3.5 million dollars of your own money to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles?”
Amber replied: “I have not yet. I fully intend to honor all of my pledges. I would love for him to stop suing me so I can.”
Heard’s revelation comes after she claimed she had previously donated the entire amount to charity multiple times. In 2018, the Aquaman star made the remark on camera on the Dutch talk show RTL Late Night. She also stated the claim under oath during Depp’s libel case in the United Kingdom in 2020.
Terence Dougherty, the ACLU’s Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel, testified previously in the Depp/Heard legal drama, claiming that just $1.3 million had been received from Heard or someone acting on her behalf. According to Dougherty, the ACLU received $350,000 directly from Heard, $100,000 through Depp, $500,000 through a donor-advised fund, and another $350,000 through a donor-advised fund in the aftermath of the promise, totaling $1.3 million.
