Actress donates $7M divorce settlement to charity

The "Rum Diaries" act hit the jackpot when she got $7 million from estranged husband Johnny Depp as her divorce settlement.

Amber Heard on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards.

The actress has however chosen to donate the money she got to two charities, Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

Recall Heard who filed a restraining order against Johnny Depp accusing him of domestic violence, announced her she was donating to charity in a statement to Us Weekly, on Thursday, August 18, 2016.

She made good her claims to give away the millions she received from her soon-to-be ex-husband.

According to her, "As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves.

As reported in the media, the amount received in the divorce was $7 million and $7 million is being donated.

This is over and above any funds that I have given away in the past and will continue to give away in the future."

“I know these organisations will put the funds to good use and look forward to continuing to support them in the future,” she said, adding, “Hopefully, this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most.”

Meanwhile, Amber Heard has reportedly terminated her domestic violence restraining order against actor, Johnny Depp, who she accused of assaulting her during their relationship.
