Amber Heard has stated that she will follow through on her vow to contribute the USD 7 million settlement she received from Johnny Depp during their divorce. In an exclusive interview with Savannah Guthrie for NBC News, the 36-year-old actress said,”I made a pledge, and that pledge is made over time by its nature.”

According to PEOPLE, Heard’s admission came after Guthrie asked her a question “You had promised to donate the USD 7 million of your divorce settlement to charity. It was revealed at trial that you haven’t done so yet [but] they played a tape where you [said you had]. Do you think that raised questions as to your credibility with the jury?” “I don’t know,” Heard responded, because I feel like so much of the trial was meant to cast dispersions on who I am as a human, my credibility, to call me a liar in every way you can.”

Furthermore, this is consistent with what Heard stated on the witness stand during the trial, when she explained how legal bills for Depp’s case precluded her from continuing to contribute. For the uninitiated, Depp, 59, and Heard, 59, divorced in August 2016 and settled for USD 7 million. That same month, the  actress stated at the time, “This is in addition to any funds that I have previously given given away and will continue to give away in the future.”

Heard said in a statement at the time that the money will be distributed among a number of groups, with a “a particular focus to stop violence against women,” as well as the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where she had volunteered for the previous ten years. On the Today show on June 2, Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft said, “Oh, no, absolutely not,” when asked if her client will be able to pay the amount. In the same interview, Bredehoft stated that Heard “absolutely” wants to fight the conviction.
