For once, AH had some bad luck in that the CoA coincided with JL on streaming services so her google news is all about the CoA. All the UK newspapers have it in their headlines that JD's lawyer say she lied and that influenced the ruling. I was expecting the headlines "AH confirms she has "donated" the $7 million". Some muppets will say it you just watch.

Super interesting that she has posted nothing about JL on her social media - anyone else find that odd?

She’s barely in the film ah ah. She must have three minutes of screen time max.

Zac Snyder's Justice League is not going to help Heard's career.
Mera is not a significant character. She has about 3 minutes of screen time in a 4 hour movie. The new scene with Mera is an epilogue with multiple characters.
Heard is listed 16th in the closing actor credits. In the opening credits, 14 actors have their name alone on screen then Heard has a shared card with another actor.
AH might not want to encourage people to watch ZSJL because it would reveal how insignificant her role is.

Holy Hell! Amber caught in another lie and ACLU complacent!

In the hearing today, Depp team brought up the Pledge form from ACLU that was undated and unsigned claiming she would donate $3.5M within 10 years. There were two other letters dated 2016. It was assumed the pledge form was from 2016 also. But the logos are different, and the pledge form uses the Centential logo which is from 2020!

Great catch Lbock - simply unbelievable how much the ACLU have enabled her hoaxing. Have they always been like this ie at the beck and call of their super donors?

I guess now comes the question of how AH dealt with the $7 million on her taxes. She surely cannot have claimed she donated and got the tax relief can she? On US tax forms do you have to show that you have made the donation?

I hear you on how much screen time she has in JL but when did that stop her in the past - anyone remember the Economist conference where she was billed as the star of Danish Girl? I hadn't even realised she was in it! I find it extremely curious that she has not made a big song and dance about it - I would have expected at the very least an Instagram post and a walk with the dog through LA so paps could photograph her and then refer to her starring role. And no interviews? I wonder if the negative reaction she got from when she was interviewed for The Stand prompted WB to tell her not to say anything.

Soooo....we are supposed to believe she will fulfill her "pledge" to the ACLU till 8/19/26?
And ignore, that she publicly stated she made the donation already? And, that her lawyer made a cheap excuse for her?
Well, buckle up AH, time+money is running out.

And Elon paid part of the other 3.5million to CHLA? (Need to check the sums again but I am sure the CHLA is still missing money)

The spin is unbelieveable.

Which charity asked if she would be making any more payments?

ForeverYoung: CHLA

BTW: Stevie J Raw. (YouTube) and guests will be doing a live stream fund raiser for CHLA - #JusticeforJohnny - as AH failed to give the monies as per the divorce settlement. :girlwave2:

Sorry CHLA also covered her butt after she publicly announced she donated to them. They partially enabled all this. Imo

LBock: I thought JD had prove she hasn't. He made the initial $100,000 payment but she has not covered anything else. When did that happen?

Yes, JD proved CHLA only received his initial $100K donation. ACLU confirmed her initial $350K prior to the divorce and the $100K Johnny made. Both entitites have received anonymous donations in varying amounts (none total the $7M). What is important to note, all letters regarding the Anon donations include some statement that they "cannot be applied to existing pledges" or wording to some effect. Even IF the letters stated the donations were being given in her name, that caveat was still stated in the letters.

Assuming that AH will somehow get away with the "pledge" being fulfilled to the ACLU over 10 years that does not cover the 3.5million to CHLA.

A twitter account did the math and CHLA seem to miss 2.65 Mio. (When you accept anonymus donations made on her behalf until this point...) Do CHLA also have an undated, unsigned letter in which the donations could be stretched over a decade? Just wondering.

Agree Lbock - there are two things here (1) Elon Musk's donations could not be used against existing pledges - presumably for his tax reasons (2) SHE DID NOT DONATE. And yes Adam Wolanski I know what that word means.

I am going to slightly defend the CHLA here because she put them into a terribly difficult position. As far as I can tell they initially thanked her publicly for her donation which was a pledge, granted but when her name appeared on the list of donors, it did make clear that those names were for money paid and money promised.

I think most people wouldn't have had any problem if she had made her pledge in 2016/17 and then made the donation in the following year - everyone has tax planning and cash flow to manage.

Once it was clear to the CHLA that she was not going to pay - what are they supposed to do? They could publicly shame her but that would go down very badly with other potential donors. Unlike the ACLU, the CHLA did not carry on thanking her or letting her speak for them.

I've served as a director of charity and it was so awkward when people made a promise of money - usually in a public way when we were auctioning at a fundraiser say - and then they don't come through with the money. What are you supposed to do?

The CHLA did not dodge the subpoena like the ACLU.

The ACLU appears to have done whatever their largest donor wanted them to, including enabling and covering for an abuser.

Sorry and can you all indulge me once again whilst I rant about something else which irritated beyond belief.

Everyone remember that love-in exchange of emails between the ACLU director and AH? You remember the one where he says he loves her and they haven't even met. He asks AH if the anonymous donation which has just come in should be counted towards her pledge (although clearly is shouldn't be) because it came from one of Elon Musk's charitable trusts and she says "oh yes it wasn't supposed to come from there" - like it was some trivial matter where the money came from. Oh I am so sorry ACLU, I meant to write the cheque from my bank account but accidentally it appears to have come from somewhere else. Goodness silly me.

Second, ACLU director writes about "the Depp money" - I think he says it twice. Maybe I am being too proper and British but that seemed so rude. He's accepted 100k, the proper way to refer to it would have been "money from Mr Depp" or just use his full name. I may be over sensitive over manners but that just came across as totally disrespectful.

Ok, thanks. I am just wondering why the organization would be asking when she will be donating again if they knew it was a ten year period.
