Amber Heard and her team have admitted that she failed to donate the $7 Million she promised to various charities. This was revealed in a recent article on Deadline.
Amber Heard had announced that she’d be donating her entire $7 million settlement to charity. She was going to be splitting the money between the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Here’s what Amber heard said at the time:
As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves. As reported in the media, the amount received in the divorce was $7 million and $7 million is being donated.

The Daily Mail has since reported that Depp accused Amber Heard of “pocketing” the money and “repeatedly lying about giving it all to charity.” The ACLU didn’t want to comment, however, the Children’s Hospital has confirmed that they’ve only received $100,000 of the money promised.
Amber Heard’s legal team has since fired back, saying:
Mr. Depp’s effort to plant stories in the media criticizing Amber for not yet fulfilling all the donations she pledged to charity is yet another desperate attempt to divert attention from the UK Court’s findings relating to allegations of Mr. Depp committing domestic abuse and violence. … Amber has already been responsible for seven figures in donations to charitable causes and intends to continue to contribute and eventually fulfill her pledge. However, Amber has been delayed in that goal because Mr. Depp filed a lawsuit against her, and consequently, she has been forced to spend millions of dollars defending Mr. Depp’s false accusations against her.
