It was settled back in August, or so we thought.
It turns out that the final paperwork STILL hasn’t been completed, and Amber’s promise to donate the divorce settlement to a Children’s Hospital and ACLU’s domestic violence organization hasn’t been fulfilled. Johnny Depp was supposed to pay Amber $7 million in the settlement, which they agreed on about 3 months ago. Johnny then decided he would give the money to the charities himself instead of having it go through Amber, and he even made a $200,000 initial donation to both. She’s mad, and doesn’t want him getting the tax deduction.
Why no more than the $200k? Well, apparently Amber did a PSA about domestic violence, and she “all but said Johnny Depp abused her.” Talking about the allegations against Johnny would violate the settlement agreement, and Johnny would have no obligation to pay. Lawyers are doing lawyer things and figuring out who owes what and who did what, and they should reach a final FINAL settlement this week.
