Heard made this claim when Depp’s lawyer dug out the topic of her unfulfilled charity donation from her divorce settlement being raised in court. For the unaware, back in 2018, In 2018, the actress had revealed that she had paid half of her $7 million divorce settlement to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) charity. However, now the charity claims that they haven’t received any donation from Amber yet.
While questioning this, Johnny’s lawyer asked Amber if the 2018 announcement was for her seeking “praise”, and “good press” and to “seem altruistic publicly”. Replying to this question, Heard said, “That wasn’t my interest.”
Amber further said, “My interest is in my name – in clearing my name. At the time, I was being called a ‘liar’ and my motives were being questioned. I did see it as important to clear that up.”
She concluded her part of the story by saying, “I wanted to make a statement to make sure there was not any doubt. That I couldn’t be labelled these things just because Johnny was the bigger star and had more publicity reach.”
