Following the acrimonious divorce from Hollywood star Johnny Depp, actress Amber Heard was set to donate her $7million from the divorce settlement to charity. But recent reports suggest that the 30-year-old hasn't yet donated the full amount to the said charities.
Find out the reason why Heard hasn't paid her divorce settlement to the promised causes:
Apparently former couple Depp and Heard are yet to finalise their divorce settlement, which was reached after a long-drawn legal battle in August.
Having finally agreed on the terms of divorce and the settlement amount, the Rum Diary actress had promised to split the whopping sum from her split between two charities – Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and ACLU with a focus to stop violence against women.
But, due to the delay in divorce finalisation with reports suggesting that the legal documents are yet to be signed, it seems there is still some time before Heard can "honour her pledges" to the charities.
Shedding light on this delay in divorce finalisation, the actress's attorney Pierce O'Donnell told E! News, "The settlement documents are being finalized and will be signed this week. Johnny is obligated by the settlement to pay Amber, and she in turn will honour her pledges to Children's Hospital and the American Civil Liberties Union."
One reason why the full $7m hasn't yet been donated is also because the two exes are at loggerheads over who will give the money to the charities. A report by People magazine quoted a Depp's representative, who claimed that The Pirates Of The Caribbean actor would pay the amount directly to ACLU and the Children's Hospital.
However, the plan was rejected by Heard's team, who insisted that Depp pays the amount in full rather than in instalments.
"If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honour the full amount by donating $14M to charity, which, after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7M payment obligation to Amber," the representative had said.
