The ex-couple had been married for 15 months before their relationship imploded acrimoniously in May amid allegations of domestic violence. When their settlement was agreed in August, the 30 year old actress pledged to donate the reputed $7 million she’s receiving from it to charity.

Amber Heard has demanded that her ex-husband Johnny Depp double the amount he is paying to charity following their $7 million divorce settlement earlier this month, after she accused him of trying to cut his total bill by donating the sums directly to the charities she named.
52 year old Pirates of the Caribbean star Depp settled out of court and agreed to pay Heard $7 million as part of their divorce, which she then pledged to donate directly to two charities – the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, two organisations that have done work to prevent domestic violence.
Depp confirmed on Thursday (August 25th) that he had paid the first of the instalments directly to the charities, but “in the name of Amber Heard”, saying that his ex-wife’s “generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected.”
