Johnny Depp got a victory in court: his ex-wife will be forced to reveal whether or not she gave the $ 7 million of her divorce to associations as she had promised.
Back in 2016: After 15 months of marriage, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard reach an out-of-court divorce agreement. The “Fantastic Beasts” actor then pays the actress $ 7 million. An amount that Amber Heard promises to donate to several charities: half will go to the American Civil Liberties Union “with particular emphasis on stopping violence against women” and he other half will be for the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, where Amber Heard has volunteered. But now Johnny Depp blames her for breaking her promise and the court has agreed to go and check the claims of the actress who has just become a mother.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 58, was granted a partial petition by a New York judge who ordered the associations to release documents confirming or not Amber Heard’s payment of the divorce amount. Johnny Depp and his lawyer explained that this announcement by Amber Heard was just a “calculated and manipulative lie” that would have cost him the victory in his libel case by “tipping the scales in his favor from the start.” Following the loss of his lawsuit, Johnny Depp had lost his role in the saga of “Fantastic Beasts”.
At the time, Amber Heard had issued a statement: “Money has not played a role for me personally and it never has been, except for the purpose of being able to give it to associations in order to help those who are less able to defend themselves. As reported by the media, the amount received in the divorce was $ 7 million and that $ 7 million is being donated. “
