Amber Heard to donate $7M divorce settlement to charities

Amber Heard, 30, has announced that she will be donating the entirety of her $7 million dollar divorce settlement from Johnny Depp to the American Civil Liberties Union in New York and the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in California. In a statement released on August 18th, Heard wrote that the money would be used to service women being abused and children with illnesses and disabilities.

Heard previously stated that she was herself a victim of domestic abuse by Depp during their 15-month marriage. Depp’s attorneys have claimed that Heard made false allegations in order to increase her settlement. Heard responded to these accusations in the statement, writing that “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”.
