Amber Heard has lashed out at Johnny Depp for giving her divorce settlement money directly to charity,claiming he will get back half the amount in charitable tax deductions.
After the star announced earlier this month the $7 million she would be receiving from her estranged spouse would be given to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union, and actor’s representative confirmed on Thursday he had sent “the first of multiple installments” to both organisations.
However, Amber’s team have hit out at the donation as if Johnny has sent it directly, he will get a charitable tax deduction, so should donate $14 million to make it equal – while the actress is also frustrated that the money isn’t being given as a lump sum.
A member of Amber’s team told Mirror Online:
“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.”
