The conflict between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard seems like a game of chess. When the actress seems to have the upper hand, her ex-husband’s response emerges and vice versa. In the last hours the crossed accusations returned because after the recent information favorable to the woman regarding her work, the actor managed to take a new step to prove his innocence before Justice. What happened?
As confirmed this Friday by Daily Mail, Judge Arthur Engoron of New York granted Depp’s request that evidence is presented to show whether Heard donated the seven million dollars from the divorce, just as promised. The defense of the protagonist of Pirates of the Caribbean insists that it was “dishonest” and that their conduct serves to prove that he also lies in the accusations against the artist.
After the separation of the couple, the actress said publicly that she would donate the money she was entitled to. He announced that one half would be for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the other for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. However, the attorneys investigated and found that the promise was never kept. Therefore, They ask that the ACLU present documentation that verifies whether the donation arrived or not.
In turn, Depp had also requested that the organization prove whether Heard is an ambassador for the ACLU. However, that aspect was rejected by the judge. “The ACLU has not been able to demonstrate that the information requested regarding the donation is completely irrelevant, with the exception of documents related to Heard’s role as ACLU brand ambassador.”, reads the official resolution published by the newspaper.
In this way, there will be one more episode in the framework of the litigation that movie stars have maintained since 2018. At that time, the actor filed a defamation lawsuit for $ 50 million for the article that his ex-wife wrote to denounce his abuse. The verdict of the case was postponed in February 2021 and just on April 11, 2022 sentencing will be carried out in Fairfax County in Virginia.
