Amber’s “delay”

Amber Heard shot a domestic violence PSA last week. A few days later, TMZ reported that she’d yet to donate the money she’d promised from her divorce settlement from Johnny Depp. They made it sound like she was reneging on her pledge…even though Johnny hadn’t actually paid her because they were still finalising the documents…which… what’s the f-cking story here, then?!

Late last night, TMZ was back with the mansplaining. Here’s the petty ass headline:

And here’s the petty ass story:

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard finally hammered out their divorce settlement, and the charities she promised to fund will get their cash ... with a slight delay. Sources connected to the exes tell us Johnny will pay Amber $6.8 million -- that's the $7 mil originally agreed upon, minus the $200k he already donated to the ACLU and Children's Hospital L.A. in her name. We're told she'll get all the money within about 12 months.

Amber will then follow through on her vow to donate ALL of her settlement dough. We're told she'll make multiple payments to CHLA and the ACLU ... with the plan being to pay the full amount by the end of 2018.

Sources not connected with Amber are scoffing, saying they don't think the charities will ever get the money.

Bottom line -- Johnny will get a charitable tax write-off for $200k, Amber will write-off her $6.8 mil worth of donations ... and they can both put the nightmare marriage and divorce behind them.

OK but she already advanced the charities $350K of her own money before receiving a penny from Johnny back in August. So what’s with the f-cking shade? And while we’re throwing shade, why aren’t we throwing shade at the real reason this non-story is blowing up? Nobody was paying attention to donation schedules until Team Johnny started implying that Amber hadn’t made her donations… even though HE was the one holding up the cash delivery. Given the timeline of events, to me, the way I read the situation, it feels like he was holding it up and then leaking the insinuation because he was pissed at her about the PSA. Pissed that he can’t control what she says, what she does. The way I read it, lashing out like this is an attempt to reclaim power. This is someone who’s used to having the power. And Amber was able to escape it.

Here she is out for dinner earlier this week with ex-boyfriend Mark Wystrach, a musician. They broke up back in 2007, before she hooked up with Tasya van Ree. What kind of a hissy is Johnny going to pull when he sees these pictures?
