Amber Heard donates $7 million divorce settlement to ACLU

and Children's Hospital of L.A.- $3.5 million to each. That's the entire amount she received in her divorce from Johnny Depp, who had accused her of making up her accusations of his abuse of her for financial gain.

Kudos to Ms. Heard.

Heard’s statement regarding her charitable donations states that she was awarded $7 million in the divorce and all of those funds would be donated equally between the American Civil Liberties Union, with focus on battling violence against women, and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where Heard has volunteered for 10 years.

“Over the years, I have seen firsthand how more funding for staffing, better equipment and better medication can make the difference between life or death for a child,” Heard said.

Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the ACLU, commented on Heard’s donation, saying, “For years, we have worked through the courts and legislatures around the country to make sure that domestic violence victims are fully protected by the law and receive the government assistance they deserve. We could not be more thankful for Ms. Heard’s support -- she can be confident that this gift will help other women live safely and freely.”

Paul S. Viviano, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles also commented on the funds provided by Heard.

“On behalf of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ leadership, staff and the thousands of brave patients and their families who will benefit from this donation, I would like to thank Amber Heard for this tremendous gift. Her generosity will support the lifesaving treatments and cures that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles provides for critically ill children each year,” Viviano said in a statement.

3. I don't keep up with celebrities, but has Johnny Depp gone off the deep end or something?

 

I really have no idea and always liked his choices in parts, and what he thinks about Americans.

4. Beats me. The only reason I know about this is it's been

 

all over the news for weeks, and caught my eye because of the abuse shit.

I'm just impressed with her generosity.

5. He went off the deep end when he married her--she is too young for him, and he's not her sexual

preference exclusively--it was doomed to fail before it even began. It was a "married in haste, repent at leisure" type of situation, apparently. And Depp is apparently the jealous type--he can't handle competition, according to some sources. Combine that with "middle aged crazy" and you have a recipe for disaster.

9. Money made while they were married

They were not married for that long, so $7 Million seems right
