Johnny Depp has won yet another victory in his battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard. While the actor had reached an amicable divorce agreement by giving the actress $ 7 million in 2016, the latter had promised to donate all of it to two associations. Depp accuses her of not having kept her promise and the court has agreed to go and verify the actress’ statements.
Amber Heard’s promise to donating the $ 7 million received by Johnny Depp following their divorce agreement to charities was not kept, according to the New York court. Johnny Depp was granted a partial petition by a judge, who ordered the associations to release documents confirming or not Amber Heard’s payment of the divorce amount. If this is confirmed, Johnny Depp may well win his libel case.
