Amber Heard breaks promise of donating money to charities

Amber Heard has failed to donate any money to charity following her divorce settlement.

The 30-year-old actress reportedly agreed to give $7 million, which she was due to receive after splitting with her former partner Johnny Depp earlier this year, to the Children's Hospital and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) domestic violence unit, but three months have passed and Amber has not made a single contribution, according to TMZ.

The former couple came up with the agreement in August this year after Amber claimed Johnny was "verbally and physically abusive" to her during the course of their relationship, and the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star was due to hand over a large sum of money to his ex-wife as part of their settlement.

Although the dark-haired hunk has previously donated the first instalment of $200 thousand equally to both organisations, the companies have yet to receive any money since.

And it has been reported the reason the golden-haired beauty has failed to make subsequent payments is because the pair have yet to sign the final settlement documents, and Johnny would rather pay the sum directly to the charities, whilst Amber wants to receive her part first before sending it on to the ACLU and Children's Hospital to avoid Johnny from getting a tax deduction.

The 'Magic Mike XXL' star's lawyer, Pierce O'Donnell, has told TMZ he predicts the papers will be signed this week.

Meanwhile, Amber - who is not allowed to mention the allegations made against Johnny, who has since had the domestic violence case dismissed, as part of their settlement - recently opened up about domestic violence in a new campaign for the #GirlGaze Project, which has been shared on YouTube.

In the video, the 'Drive Angry' star said: "I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that, the label of victim. It happens to so many women you know, when it happens in your home behind closed doors with someone you love it's not straightforward.

"If a stranger did this as it was pointed out to me if a stranger did this it would be a no brainer."
