  • AMBER HEARD CALLS BS ON JOHNNY DEPP'S DONATIONS

  • Fri, 26 Aug 2016 01:00:00 EST

    The divorce may be settled but the drama may be far from over for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Amber is calling BS on Johnny's claims about writing check to the charities she chose as part of her $7 million divorce settlement.

    TMZ is reporting that Amber's team is arguing that because Johnny sent the money directly to the organizations, Children's Hospital of L.A. and the ACLU, he is entitled to tax breaks which means it did actually cost him the full $7 million. They said in a statement, "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. Anything less would be a transparent attempt by Johnny's counsel, Laura Wasser and Patti Glaser, to reduce their client's true payment by half under the guise of newfound concern for charities that he has never previously supported."

    • Amber's team also stated that it's not technically Johnny's money to give away.

We stand by our ingredients, the effectiveness of the products, and we're pretty optimistic that we're going to win every case." Jessica also said, "It's just a headline, really. Because when you look into any of it, they're baseless. There's no merit behind any of it."
