Since their divorce in 2016, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are regularly in the news. The reason ? Their incessant disputes, translated into legal actions for 4 years now. 2020 had finally marked the outcome of Johnny Depp’s lawsuit against The Sun, which described the actor as a “female drummer”, after which justice had granted victory to the British newspaper. On the sidelines of the ongoing trial for which the actor accuses his ex-wife of having falsified his accusations of domestic violence, Johnny Depp recently returned to the charge against Amber Heard with new charges. Indeed, the interpreter of Jack Sparrow unveiled on January 7, 2021 that the young woman would have pocketed the divorce money, or $ 7 million, while she had officially expressed the wish to donate it to organizations charitable. Indeed, Amber Heard had said during the divorce in 2016 that “the money did not matter to her” and that “the earnings would be divided equally between the American Union for the Freedom of Civil Rights (ACLU ) and the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. ” At the same time, a few days later, accountant Edward L. White sent the hospital a check for $ 100,000 from Amber Heard, specifying in a letter shared by the Daily Mail that other payments would follow to reach the agreed $ 3.5 million. For Johnny Depp and his lawyers, the rest of the money never arrived. The evidence put forward? In June 2019, three years after the first payment, an official at the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital reportedly wrote to Amber Heard to ask if the actress planned to honor her promise or if the deal should be considered canceled.
Amber Heard: why she hasn’t honored her promise yet
Elaine Charlson Bredehoft, the actress’ lawyer, told the Daily Mail that Amber Heard “intended to honor his commitment”, but that the latter “has fallen behind because of Johnny Depp’s lawsuits against his client” , pushing her to spend millions of dollars to defend herself against the accusations of her ex-husband. Asked by the Daily Mail, neither the American Union for the Freedom of Civil Rights, nor the children’s hospital in Los Angeles wanted to answer.
