How Elon Musk Got Dragged Into The Amber Heard Donation Controversy
Amber Heard pledged to donate $3.5 million of her divorce settlement with Johnny Depp to the ACLU. The Washington Post publishes an op-ed by Heard, an ambassador for women’s rights at for the American Civil Liberties Union, urging support for women who suffer domestic violence. ‘Two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out,’ reads the headline. Heard files for divorce after 15 months of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Four days later a judge issues a temporary restraining order against Depp over domestic violence allegations.
- The Daily Mail states that the lawsuit will force the organization to end their ‘outrageous stonewalling’ and comply with Depp’s demands through subpoenas.
- According to Deadline, Musk was able to do this by putting the money into a fund with the investment company Vanguard, which then donated the money to the ACLU.
- ‘This center provides a safe haven for Syrian children suffering from trauma, & gives them the tools to heal.
Recently, the Los Angeles Police Department launched an investigation against Amber Heard on charges of perjury in her domestic violence accusations against Johnny Depp. TikToker @delloliod mentioned that in 2018, Amber appeared on a talk show making claims that she did indeed donate all the money from her settlement. She further explained that she never wanted anything from Johnny or the marriage. According to Deadline, Amber’s lawyers argued in 2022 that she wasn’t able to donate her entire settlement to charity just yet, while blaming Johnny entirely. Depp and Heard reach a $7 million divorce settlement which the actress promises to give to charity.
Did Amber Heard Ever Donate $7 Million to Charity?
Back in November, Johnny lost the libel case he filed against UK newspaperThe Sun for calling him a “wife-beater” in an op-ed headline, and many treated the verdict as some kind of clear resolution of the years-long he said/she said fight between the exes. Heck, he was fired from his role in the next installment ofFantastic Beasts franchise — and he was basically playing magical Hitler. In that case, Nichol sided withThe Sun, arguing in his decision, "Her donation of the $7 million to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger." Heard hasn’t donated the rest of the money, and she never signed a pledge form that ACLU staffers prepared for her, Dougherty said.
Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft asked why Heard accepted a $7million settlement from Depp. Depp`s attorney Benjamin told USA Today in a statement, "Mr Depp is most gratified by the Court`s decision." Amber Heard will have to force a charity to reveal whether she had donated USD 7 million to the organisation as she had promised. “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.
Shocking Evidence Revealed! Did Amber Heard KEEP That $7 Million She Said Was Going To Charity?!
Heard has donated the full sum to ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. No, the legal battle between Johnny Depp andAmber Heard is nowhere close to over. Regardless, I hope you’re not sick of this Johnny Depp/Amber Heard legal kerfuffle, because it’s going to rumble on for a long time to come.
Now, Depp has filed a motion in the New York Supreme Court to create pressure on the nonprofit organization. The Daily Mail states that the lawsuit will force the organization to end their ‘outrageous stonewalling’ and comply with Depp’s demands through subpoenas. Her admission of the gracious gesture was noted by the judge and eventually played a key role in deciding the case against Depp. "Her donation of the $7 million to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger," Judge Andrew Nichol noted in writing. Depp lost the case when a UK judge ruled that a newspaper headline tagging him as "wife-beater" during his marriage to Heard was "substantially true." "Attorney Andrew Caldecott argued that Heard`s pledge to the charities was a "calculated and manipulative lie" that "tipped the scales against Mr Depp from the very beginning."
