Johnny Depp is a miserable old drunk and an abusive piece of shit, but somehow he’s still getting work in Hollywood and not really facing much backlash. Ah, the joys of being a rich white dude. His fuckery continues unchecked, though, as he seems to be withholding Amber Heard‘s $7 million divorce settlement while simultaneously having his minions spreading the word that she’s gone back on her promise to donate the money to the ACLU, a children’s hospital and other domestic violence charities. Okay, so that last part hasn’t been proven, but it’s a bit too convenient.
Here’s the deal: TMZ reported some sensationalized story about how Amber’s charity money is still “MIA”, which isn’t exactly true since… she hasn’t received it yet. TMZ has always been pretty supportive of Depp and spoken in favor of him, so there’s no surprises there, but it’s all bullshit. It also comes just on the heels of Amber’s domestic violence PSA:
The reality is, Johnny needs to pay up. He’s said before he wants to make the donations himself on Amber’s half (he wants the tax breaks). There’s also the possibility he might not want to pay her at all. Either way, fuck Johnny Depp.
Oh yeah, and TMZ was forced to recant their statements and admit that the ACLU has already received $350k from Amber, so there’s that.
