Johnny Depp donates Amber Heard divorce money directly to charity

But Amber has slammed the action, saying the money was not his to give and that his intentions aren't truthful.

Johnny Depp has decided to cut out the middle person and donate Amber Heard’s divorce settlement directly to charity.
But despite the actor praising Amber’s honorable intentions in a released statement, his ex-wife is reportedly not happy at all.
When the divorce was settled, Amber announced she would be donating the proceeds to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
Johnny reportedly then donated the first installment directly to the organisations, in name of Amber Heard.
"Ms. Heard’s generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected,” the actor said through a rep.
Johnny bypassed Amber, giving the cash straight to the charities.
But according to TMZ, the blonde bombshell is calling Johnny out over his intentions.
She claims he isn’t really donating the full $US7 million owed, because by giving the money to the charities, he will be able to make a sizable tax deduction.
Amber is not impressed by her ex's reportedly shifty intentions.
The 30-year-old apparently said the money was not his to give away.
The model released a damning 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."
Amber now wants double the amount she settled for to make up for his actions.
Her people continue, "We would also insist that the full amount be paid immediately and not drawn out over many years."
Amber’s legal team then had a go at the 53-year-old actor’s team, saying, "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."
We thought this was all over! See the details of the settlement in the video below.
