It has been revealed though that she has yet to give a single penny to the above charities, TMZ reports.
Johnny stated at the time that he was giving the money directly to the charities in Amber Heard’s name and had sent $200,000 to both charities.
On hearing this Amber Heard was reportedly furious with Johnny for giving the money directly as she claims that she wanted to send the money to the charities herself because she did not want Johnny to get any tax deductions from the payments.
Sources told TMZ the reason for Amber not yet giving any money to the said charities was because they have yet to sign the final settlement documents.
The issue is reported to be that Johnny prefers to pay the charities directly in Amber’s name. However she insists that she should be the one to send the money; $7 million to split between both charities equally.
Johnny Depp’s rep said in a statement, “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.”
The rep added, “Ms. Heard’s generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected.”
The final settlement papers are due to be signed by Johnny and Amber next week. Under the settlement terms, Amber is barred from bring up the domestic violence accusations.
