After her divorce from Johnny Depp, actress Amber Heard promised to donate the $7 million she received to civil associations; However, this was questioned in the recent public trial that the couple faced in Virginia, United States, where the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean accuses his ex-partner of defamation for 50 million dollars.
One of these organizations is the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), for which its director of operations, Terence Dougherty, testified about the amount he has received from Heard, which had to be 3.5 million dollars.
How much money did Amber Heard donate?
Through a recording, Dougherty assured that only 1.3 million dollars were paid on account and revealed the amounts: the Aquaman actress paid directly only 350 thousand dollars.
The figure is completed with 100 thousand dollars paid by Depp (when asked, he explained that they were part of his donation), 500 thousand dollars through a donor-advised Vanguard fund, and another 350 thousand from donors in Fidelity. The affiant claimed to believe that at least $500,000 came from Elon Musk’s wallet.
Likewise, the ACLU member cited a 2016 email from the owner of Tesla – and recently also from Twitter – where he explained that the payments would be made over ten years.
“We contacted Mrs. Heard in 2019 for the next installment of her donation and we learned that she was having financial difficulties, ” he argued when asked if the entire amount was covered, whose response was negative.
This would go against statements Amber Heard made to a UK court in 2020, confirming that she had donated the settlement to the ACLU and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
