Uh, allow the witness to be hostile? Its cross-examination Amber Hard It finally started on Monday afternoon, and it started so much fighting!
Johnny DeppIts lawyer Camilla Vasquez He started by pressing Amber on the meaning of the divorce – but never gave up.
As you may recall, just after the couple’s divorce in 2016, Amber made it clear that she was not behind Johnny’s money, announcing that she would pay the full $ 7 million to charity. Per cent. Because, he reaffirmed in the stand, he was “never interested in Johnny’s money.” He testified on Monday:
“I did not think about money. I was told that if I did not agree to a number, it could be reversed, we would never settle. I took much less than what they were offering and what I was entitled to. “
He’s half committed American Civil Liberties Union And there is Children’s Hospital LA, Two great nonprofits that could always use a big donation like that. The thing is … he never paid them all.

Late last month, ACLU lawyer and COO Dr. Terrence Dogarty Eventually Amber was forced to admit – after Depp’s team was subpoenaed – that they didn’t pay them $ 3.5 million. She testified that in the end they received $ 1.3 million, more than a third, and 500k of that came from her boyfriend, the billionaire at the time. Elon Musk. Not only did he stop paying, but once they broke up, Elon also stopped paying. Dougherty has confirmed that they have not heard from Amber since 2019.
It is not clear how much he has donated to Children’s Hospital, but a letter was leaked last year stating that their associate senior VP sent Amber in 2019 that they would receive only $ 100,000 – and another 4 3.4 million later he promised.
So how much did he actually give? Vasquez dug to find out, and it didn’t go well. He said the point was blank that Amber did not donate 7 7 million, for which Aquaman The star answered:
No joke: Vasquez laughed, jumping north. He then resubmitted his question:
“Sitting here today, Miss Hard, you still haven’t donated seven million dollars to the Divorce Settlement Charity. Isn’t that right?”
Amber will not respond – speaking directly to the jury:
“Wrong, I have committed a total of seven million to charity and I want to meet those obligations.”
Vasquez tried to interrupt more than once, noting that he was not answering questions. He refreshed again:
“Sitting here today, you didn’t donate seven million dollars – DonationNot committed, Donation – সাত 7 Million Divorce Resolution Charity?
Amber disinterested, explaining – again directly to the jury:
“I use pledges and donations synonymously … that’s how grants are made.”
Depp’s lawyer noted that these are not synonymous – one promise, the other a fulfillment – and held the actress’ feet in the fire:
“Respected, Mrs. Hard, that’s not my question. To date, you have not paid L 3.5 million of your own to ACLU, yes or no? “
Amber finally calmed down and said:
“I haven’t done it yet.”
Vasquez asked again:
“And to this day, you haven’t paid নিজের 3.5 million of your own money at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital?”
Amber responds, never giving an excuse:
“I haven’t done it yet. Johnny sued me.
Vasquez finally asked angrily, reiterating:
“So to date, you haven’t donated – paid for – seven million dollars to a charity to settle your divorce, have you?”
“I have not yet been able to meet those obligations.”
Shh! See the full, controversial exchange (below)!
That’s great. Curse. We want to embody all kinds of things that have already happened over the last few months, but let’s not wind up past a bomb shell type event here. Thus he always stepped out from under the demands of his party that he was extorting money from him. This may not be true because he did not keep the money, he gave it to charity.
Amber straight False About this more than once. He said in a 2018 interview on a Dutch talk show:
“A total of seven million dollars was donated – I shared it between ACLU and Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. I didn’t want anything. “
And he testified under oath in the UK High Court during the 2020 defamation trial – which Johnny lost – that he paid the full amount.
Now his defense is doubled – one is that he uses the words “gift” and “promise” interchangeably. Which is not a legal defense. The second is that Johnny sued her, so suddenly she couldn’t bear the money. But … he did not file a lawsuit against her until March 2019. Why didn’t he pay before? In 2019, the children’s hospital had already said that they had not heard from him since 2016. It does not add.
