The legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been going on since 2016, the year in which the actress decided to divorce him and also accused him of domestic violence. From that moment until today, many things have changed, the British tabloid ‘The Sun’ was involved, murky secrets of the couple were discovered and Johnny Depp seems to be on his way to get out of the situation.
Recently, the actor Tim Burton has filed a request to the court to verify that his ex-partner is not a gold digger. The initial divorce settlement called for Amber Heard to donate the $7 million that Depp would pay to charity. Thus, the beneficiary entities would be the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
Now, Johnny Depp has asked the courts to verify through documentation that the actress has actually made this donation. The legal procedure has not yet been carried out but the courts have agreed to take charge of carrying out this action in the face of Heard’s situation.
Could Be A Gold Digger
Johnny Depp and his lawyers do not trust that such a donation has been made and therefore have started this new stage in the process. In the event that Heard is shown to have failed to deliver on his promise, this could be a plus for the Edward Scissorhands performer.
In the first instance, Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for 50 million dollars for defaming him in her statements in The Sun and lost. So it was finalized that he had to pay 7 million dollars to Heard, but on the condition that they were donated to charity.
For the moment, the legal battle continues and in the event that Heard’s deception is proven, that would also uncover the fact that his defamations could be the product of lies.
Amber Heard Had A Baby
Back in July, Amber Heard shared a photo of her baby on Instagram, Oonagh Paige, who is just 3 months old. The Aquaman actress went public with her baby announcement, whom she referred to as ‘the beginning of rest of her life.’ Heard also revealed that she decided almost four years ago that she wanted to have a child and will be doing it on her own terms.
Moreover, the defamation lawsuit trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp was delayed until April 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
