Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have made headlines for years thanks to their extensive legal battle, and that trend really got worse when their defamation case went to court. That Pirates of the Caribbean actor was ultimately the victor in court, found guilty with his ex-wife on three counts and ordered to pay a whopping $10 million. And the discourse will continue for the foreseeable future, as Depp has donated money to a charity that Heard has pledged to donate her divorce money to.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard split years ago before eventually falling out in court. That Aquaman The actress received $7 million from her divorce settlement and vowed to donate the money to a number of places including the ACLU and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. And according to a new report via Twitter by fans of Depp’s NFT work, he uses these art profits to donate money to charity. This includes the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
The donations Amber Heard has pledged to Children’s Hospital and other locations became a big topic of conversation throughout the defamation process against Johnny Depp. In particular, whether the money was actually received from organizations like the ACLU. In the end, it turned out that much of the money wasn’t even donated, presumably because Heard has so many legal bills at the moment. The Depp report points out that a total of $800,000 was donated to various hospitals inside and outside the United States from the money made through his NFT art.

As previously mentioned, Heard was found guilty of three counts of defamation and ordered to pay her ex-husband over $10 million in damages. Your attorney is on record they say Aquaman The actress can’t really muster such a sum, and it’s unclear if Depp’s team will pursue it any further. If that happens, Heard could be deprived of things like her home and even future wages.
