Amber Heard’s Team Blasts Johnny Depp’s Charity Donation as His ‘Tax Deduction’
The drama between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp isn’t over yet.
After Heard was awarded $7 million in the divorce settlement with Depp and pledged to donate the full amount to charity, the 53-year-old actor sent a portion of the financial donations directly to two charities chosen by Heard. However, Heard is now insisting that Depp double the amount to account for his tax deduction, and to pay the full amount immediately rather than in installments.
“Amber Heard appreciates Johnny Depp’s novel interest in supporting two of her favorite charities, the ACLU for domestic violence and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. This is great and unexpected news,” a member of Heard’s team said in a statement on Thursday. “However, 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. We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years.”
