Amber Heard is speaking up about Johnny Depp’s legal group’s claim that she hasn’t contributed the cash from their divorce settlement to charities, as she guaranteed she would in 2016.
According to a brand-new report by The Daily Mail released Thursday, Jan. 7, the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s attorneys state they plan to utilize the accusation as part of their efforts to appeal British High Court judge Andrew Nichol‘s choice in Depp’s character assassination case versus The Sun. In that case, Nichol sided with The Sun, arguing in his choice, “Her donation of the $7 million to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger.”
In a declaration to E! News, the Aquaman starlet’ lawyer Elaine Bredehoft validates her customer has yet to meet the $7 million promise she made to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, pointing out monetary factors.
“Amber has already been responsible for seven figures in donations to charitable causes and intends to continue to contribute and eventually fulfill her pledge,” Bredehoft describes. “However, Amber has been delayed in that goal because Mr. Depp filed a lawsuit against her, and consequently, she has been forced to spend millions of dollars defending Mr. Depp’s false accusations against her.”
