Johnny Depp and Amber Hurd married in 2015. Their union however was small and in 2016 the two separated. Hurd filed for divorce and took a restraining order against the actor, claiming that he was physically abusive. According to Amber Hurd, these incidents usually occurred while Depp was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
At the time the restraining order was filed, Hurd alleges that Depp threw a phone at his face and appeared on it. Police later revealed that an investigation into the incident believed it had not actually happened. Depp publicly denied the allegations, stating that Hurd was “Attempt to secure premature financial resolution by alleging misuse.”
During the divorce, a $ 7 million settlement was reached. Herd removed the ban order and rescinded her request for $ 50, 000 a month in support of spousal support. According to Hurd, he donated the entire settlement amount. Johnny Depp is now speaking, claiming that he has proof that Herd lied and actually kept the money. Here we know.
Upon receiving the donation, it is heard that he has donated to the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. When the hospital released its donor roll honor list in 2017, Amber Hurd’s name was definitely on the list.
“My philanthropic efforts have always been centered around medical care, especially with women and children. Medical care always struck me as a basic human right and necessity. I have been doing this kind of work with children’s hospitals for the past 14 years and working to bring, expect, laugh and wander and distract the children who are seriously ill, “I heard. The people.
Herd also stated that his motivation to divorce Depp, and later a restraining order against him, was nothing to the money. According to Hurd, once the proceedings began she always intended to donate whatever monetary settlement she received from Depp.
Some of the settlement money also went to charities that deal with violence against women.
Depp’s new claims
In 2018, Depp sued defamation for an article on the news group Newspapers, which labeled him “the wife’s wife”. He lost the lawsuit, and his appeal, and now he is trying a different strategy. Depp’s legal team filed an appeal claiming that they were in possession of new evidence regarding the legality of Herd’s alleged donation of his disposal fee.
Depp’s lawyers said Amber Hurd had “a calculated and manipulative lie designed to get a powerful favorable impression from the start” when she said she donated the money.
Depp’s barrister Andrew Caldecott QC says the check was never written. According to Caldecott, Los Angeles Children’s Hospital contacted Depp’s team in 2019 to confirm that they had not received any payment from Amber Hurd at the time.
Depp’s legal team contended that she was planning to donate the money to Hurd’s admission that affected the outcome of the trial. Depp’s legal team attempted to establish that the allegations made by Herd against Depp were merely a grab for his money.
Justice Nicole said in his ruling against Depp, “A $ 7 million donation to the charity could hardly be the kind of thing a gold digger would expect.”
Now Caldecott is arguing that if the truth about the charity were revealed during the trial, it would have affected the judge’s consideration of the evidence and testimony.
Legal representation for the newsgroup newspapers is arguing that the evidence is not new at all. According to him, a donation was actually made, it was far less than just the alleged hearsay – even less than $ 1 million. The newsgroup newspaper legal team says that this information could have been obtained during due diligence and all this proves that Herd has not yet completed his donation.
The court hearing these new charges is yet to decide. A decision is expected “very soon”.
