Amber Heard Donated Her Entire $7 Million Settlement To Charity

Seen here with Johnny Depp – I’m a journalist. It’s him. – Amber Heard has shockingly donated her entire $7 million settlement to charity in an effort to stop domestic violence. According to TMZ, the charities include the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles who both publicly thanked Amber for her generosity, so yes, they really got the money. Here’s her official statement via PEOPLE:

“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,” Heard, 30, said in a Thursday statement obtained by PEOPLE.
The actress added: “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.”

Well, shit. Full disclosure: I was definitely one of the people who saw the line about Amber Heard donating a “percentage” of her settlement to charity and laughed, so I’m willing to admit I just got made to look like an asshole. That said, I can already tell the new talking point is going to be that she secretly got more money from Johnny Depp, which will be hilarious for two reasons:

1. Almost all of her detractors laughed at how little she got in the divorce because she was “full of shit.” But now all of a sudden, she obviously got more, which would suggest she wasn’t full of shit. So which one is it?

2. Even if Amber Heard did get more money, she gave $7 million to charity. That’s not how gold-digging works. You dig the gold, and then you keep the gold. Not give all (or a massive chunk) of it away to charity. Lindsay Lohan’s freckles just flew off her body reading this. Now how’s she supposed to see at night?

What do you mean that’s not how they work? Then why are there so many?
