Divorce is never easy, but somehow Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have made the whole thing look almost impossible. From the no pre-nup to the domestic violence charges to the tattoo intrigue to the temporary restraining order, this has been messy and painful from beginning to end.
We especially feel for Amber who ended up the victim at almost every juncture of the very public process. It even looked for a little while like she wasn’t going to get any money out of it either. Crisis averted though. Amber is coming out of the messy divorce with seven million dollars to her name but that’s not even the best part.
She’s made it clear that neither her marriage nor the settlement have ever been about money and she’s proving it by donating the entire seven million to charities. Half will be going to The American Civil Liberties Union–which works to prevent violence against women–and the other half is going to the Children’s Hospital of L.A.
She said in a statement: ‘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.’
Looks like Amber wins on this one. Not only has she made it out of this little disaster, she’s turned a horrible mess into something positive and productive. We hope she can quickly move on and start her post-Johnny life with relative ease now that the divorce is finally finalized.
