Amber Heard Calls BS On Johnny’s Divorce Settlement Donation!

Amber Heard Arrives Late For Her Deposition In Century City

Not good enough, Johnny Depp!

Amber Heard just fired back at her ex, saying if he really cares about donating Amber’s divorce settlement he’ll ante up $14 million, not $7 mil, so he doesn’t get that sweet, sweet tax deduction.

Amber’s team is basically saying that Johnny giving Children’s Hospital of L.A. and the ACLU the $7 million split isn’t good enough, because if he sends the money directly to the two organizations he’s not really paying $7 mil, because he gets a charitable tax deduction.  And Amber thinks it’s not Johnny’s cash to give away:

Amber’s people tell TMZ, “If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber.”

The team goes on … “We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years.”

They blast Johnny’s team, saying, “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.”

Contrary to that … Johnny’s team tells us he was honored by the Children’s Hospital of L.A. in 2006 for his work with children worldwide.

THIS is why you have good lawyers- so that they can catch your smarmy ex try to get away with more than he already has.

Johnny Depp Sent His First Divorce Check To Amber’s Charities

'3 Days To Kill' Los Angeles Premiere

Wow, I’m still so completely impressed by this.

On Wednesday, Johnny Depp just sent the first installment of his $7 million divorce settlement with Amber Heard to her chosen charities: the ACLU and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. The payment is the first in a number of installments that will eventually give each organization $3.5 million, which is….so freaking awesome. I love that this is happening, in a final, classy F you to Depp’s years of manipulation and pain.

“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 installments 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,” Depp’s rep told TMZ in a statement. “Ms. Heard’s generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected,” the statement concluded.

I know nobody really believed Amber when she said she was donating her settlement to charity, but here’s someone brave putting her money where her mouth is. It’s not about the money. It’s not about “winning.” It’s about the message she’s sending and the strength she’s exuding. So proud of Amber. So proud.

Amber Heard Donated ALL Of Her Divorce Settlement To Charity

52073016 Actress Amber Heard has officially filed for divorce from her husband Johnny Depp on May 23, 2016. Amber stated the reason for the divorce was 'irreconcilable differences'. The pair have been married for little over a year after first meeting on the set of 'The Rum Diary' in 2011. Here are file photos of the pair during happier times.***FILE PHOTOS*** FameFlynet, Inc - Beverly Hills, CA, USA - +1 (310) 505-9876 RESTRICTIONS APPLY: USA ONLY - NO WEBSITE USE

Now who’s the golddigger, Doug Stanhope?

Earlier this week, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp finalized their divorce settlement  and in the end, Depp had to pay Amber $7 million. Folded into the settlement announcement was Amber’s announcement that she would donate money to domestic violence victims, but everyone was like, “Oh, she just means she’s going to donate part of her settlement.” Well, I’ll be the first to admit we were wrong. She donated the WHOLE SETTLEMENT.

Amber Heard has donated her full $7 million divorce settlement from Johnny Depp to charity.

“As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves,” Heard, 30, said in a Thursday statement obtained by PEOPLE. The actress added: “As reported in the media, the amount received in the divorce was $7 million and $7 million is being donated. This is over and above any funds that I have given away in the past and will continue to give away in the future.”

Heard added in her statement on Tuesday that the donation will be divided amongst a number of charities but with “a particular focus to stop violence against women” as well as the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where Heard has worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years.

“I know these organizations will put the funds to good use and look forward to continuing to support them in the future. Hopefully, this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most,” the actress concluded in her statement.

Wow. I’m impressed. I was always on team Amber, but it’s hard to really know what’s going on.  She’s always maintained that it wasn’t about the money, and here we go…that being said, girl does deserve a new life with some money. But hey, maybe that new life doesn’t include dirty depp divorce money.

What do YOU think about her donation? Weigh in below!

Amber Heard Is Happy Her Divorce Is Settled And DONE.

Amber Heard Arrives Late For Her Deposition In Century City

It’s OVER, and Amber Heard is thrilled.

We learned yesterday that the sad circus that was Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s relationship has finally been closed, settled and DONE.  Amber dropped her domestic violence restraining order, got $7 million and was part of a joint statement by both legal teams. And now, the “analysis” pieces about why the statement was so carefully worded, and who “won” the divorce. People Mag’s piece is pretty okay on that front, go here to read. E! News also threw in their two cents Amber chose to settle:

After several months of highly publicized drama surrounding the pair, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard reached a settlement in their divorce as the actor agreed to pay his former wife $7 million. The question remains: Why did Amber decide to settle? Well, an insider tells E! News, “Amber was happy to settle because she wanted everything to be over. It’s taken a toll on her, her family and her friends in a very emotional way.”

Our source also said Johnny wanted the settlement from the start. “Johnny did not want to go to trial. Since Amber filed the restraining order J.D. had hoped things would settle… Initially, being the stubborn people they are, they both didn’t want to give in to each other’s requests. For a long time Amber lived with a lot of hurt and had been deeply affected by J.D.’s behavior, but chose not to say anything. Whenever something would happen, he’d apologize, and they’d move on. Johnny never wanted the world to know any of this.”

Now that they’ve reached a settlement and can both move on, the source said, “Amber hopes Johnny will get the help he needs and wishes him the best.”

I do think Amber was prepared to go to trial on this, and I think Johnny Depp FINALLY took that seriously. So, good on her. This is a pretty ugly side of a very famous actor, and I think it’s telling that Amber was given a settlement that seems pretty generous.
