After Amber Heard publicly claimed she was going to donate her entire $7 million divorce settlement from Johnny Depp to charity, we thought the beef between the pair had finally come to an end.

But that was not the case. Now it’s been revealed that Johnny has reportedly made the payment on her behalf, and Amber’s team reckons he’s done it so he can get a tax deduction!

Yep, apparently Johnny would get about half the money back from his taxes if he were to make the payments!

A member of Amber’s legal team told the Daily Mail: “If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14million to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7million payment obligation to Amber.”

They added that not doing so would be a sneaky attempt by his legal team to help ease the new financial burden put on Johnny.

Johnny has donated Amber’s divorce settlement directly to charity

This comes just after the actor said he “deeply respects” Amber for deciding to give away her divorce settlement to charity.

Johnny has sent what he claims will be the first of “multiple installments” to Amber’s chosen charities, the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union.

A spokesperson for the actor told TMZ: “Ms. Heard’s generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected.”

But her legal team didn’t buy it, saying that Johnny had never shown any support for these charities in the past…

And the drama continues…
