Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's legal battle is far from over. Despite the actor agreeing to pay his ex-wife $7 million in a settlement following her domestic violence allegations, Heard has only seen a small portion of the money. This is especially significant because she promised the entirety of it to the ACLU and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
Heard's team has reportedly filed a Request for Order with the Los Angeles Superior Court in the hopes of fast-tracking the settlement proceedings, and have also requested that Depp pay $35,435 worth of attorney fees. Depp has already paid $200k to the charities, but did so himself, rather than going through Heard.
"Instead, when Johnny learned that I planned to donate my entire marital settlement to charities, Johnny purported to satisfy his obligation to pay me by supposedly paying the charities I selected instead of me," she writes in court documents. "He also claimed that I violated the confidentiality provisions of the [Deal Point Memorandum] by announcing that I was donating my settlement to charities. In fact, I made those donations in good faith and I was responding to the leaks by Johnny's agents bragging that I had settled for substantially less than a reported, earlier offered sum and attempting to label me a gold digger."
To make matters more tense, Heard issued a PSA on domestic violence, and wrote a letter about being a survivor for Porter Magazine, which seems to have ruffled feathers on Team Depp. Stay tuned for more updates.
