Johnny Depp Claims Amber Heard Hasn't Donated All $7 Mill Of Divorce Money, Wants Retrial: Report
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp split way back in 2017 after two years of marriage, but their equal parts messy and public legal battle has extended on for much longer. As part of their divorce settlement, Johnny coughed up $7 million to Heard, and she promised she would donate all of the money to charity, which boosted her credibility in the court. The 57-year-old actor is allegedly claiming, however, that despite his ex’s promise, she hasn’t yet given all of the money away. According to TMZ, he plans to use this argument to get a court to reconsider his 2018 defamation case.

The publication reports that Depp plans to use this legal argument with his lawyers to appeal the ruling in his U.K. defamation case back in 2018 when he sued The Sun for labeling him as a “wife beater.” He lost the case when a judge instead ruled there was evidence he had abused Amber before.
