As you may recall, Amber Heard was awarded $7 million in her divorce settlement from Johnny Depp — a substantial amount that she decided to split between a few different charities because she didn’t want his bullshit money (you know, as a “gold digger” would do). Instead of giving the money to Amber so that she could then donate it, he’s apparently decided to make those donations on her behalf, possibly for a major tax break. Stay classy, ya old drunk!
Depp would get around half the money back from his taxes if he were to make the payments – something her team were quick to call attention to.
A member of her legal team told DailyMail.com: ‘If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14million to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7million payment obligation to Amber.’
And they added that not doing so would be a ‘transparent’ attempt by his legal team to relieve the financial burden on Depp.
Depp previously broke his silence to say he ‘deeply respects’ Amber for giving away her divorce settlement to charity.
Why does this not surprise me? It seems like Amber would have been better off just never mentioning that she was going to give this money away, because of course Johnny’s slimeball ass would try something like this. Ugh.
