Amber Heard files paperwork to get settlement
Amber Heard has filed legal documents in a bid to get her divorce settlement from Johnny Depp.
The ‘Danish Girl’ actress had reached an agreement with the 52-year-old actor in August that he would pay her $7 million, which she wanted to be donated to charity, but her legal team have filed a Request for Order with Los Angeles Superior Court accusing the actor of failing to pay the money.
And as well as the money and requesting fees and costs up to $35,435, the attorneys claims Johnny has also failed to comply with various other mandates, including the division of personal property, transferring a Range Rover into the 30-year-old star’s name, shipping her belongings from his private Bahamas island, and his outstanding debts incurred from cars, jewellery and stylist fees.
A declaration written by Amber alleges Johnny broke their agreement by paying his initial $200,000 donation to charity directly, rather than to the actress, and slammed claims she had "violated the confidentiality provisions" of their settlement.
She wrote: "Instead, when Johnny learned that I planned to donate my entire marital settlement to charities, Johnny purported to satisfy his obligation to pay me by supposedly paying the charities I selected instead of me.
"He also claimed that I violated the confidentiality provisions of the [Deal Point Memorandum] by announcing that I was donating my settlement to charities. In fact, I made those donations in good faith and I was responding to the leaks by Johnny’s agents bragging that I had settled for substantially less than a reported, earlier offered sum and attempting to label me a gold digger."
It has been speculated Johnny has withheld payments because he believes Amber has breached their confidentiality agreement in her two recent pieces about domestic violence, despite never referring to her ex-husband by name in either the public service announcement she contributed to, or the open letter she penned for a news outlet.
