On the Today show last week, Amber Heard was interrogated over her decision to donate her $7 million divorce settlement to charity—and said that she “shouldn’t had to have donated” at all.
Her ex-husband Johnny Depp’s defamation suit against Heard revealed that she had not yet contributed the whole settlement to charity, as she had previously stated, during the week-long trial. It was Guthrie’s concern that the jurors could have issues about Heard’s trustworthiness if she had been discovered lying.

“Do you believe to the jurors sitting there that it was you getting caught in a lie?” “Do you think to the jurors sitting there that that was you getting caught in a lie?” Guthrie had inquired.
“So as of today, you have not donated—paid—$7 million of your divorce settlement to charity, right?” Depp’s attorney, Camille Vasquez, asked during cross-examination. “I haven’t been able to meet those duties yet,” said Heard.
As part of its investigation, the jury was given a Danish TV interview in which Heard stated that “$7 million was contributed in all.”
A clip of Guthrie stating over the air that he had made a donation was shown at trial, although Guthrie subsequently claimed, “You say donated you know that everybody believes you’ve promised it—not you’ve contributed.”
“So much of the trial” was used to attempt to “cast aspersions” on her credibility, Heard argued back.
According to her testimony, “I do not know because so much, I feel like so much of the trial was geared to cast aspersions on who I am as a person… on my credibility, and to label me as a liar in every possible way.”
“That was the trial, it was a credibility contest—that was it,” Guthrie said.
Heard’s response was, “This is another situation where, if you step back and think about it, I shouldn’t have contributed it in an attempt to be believed. ‘It should not have been necessary for me to designate the full amount,'” I said.
Interrupted: “You shouldn’t have,” the presenter scolded the guest for saying. The response that Heard gave was, “Right, and that was the direction that it was designed to follow.”
During the course of her testimony, she also mentioned that she considers the terms “pledge” and “donate” to be synonymous.
In addition, the ACLU stated during its testimony that it had only received a portion of the $3.5 million payment that had been promised by Heard.

Following Heard’s high-profile legal fight with Depp, who sued her for $50 million over a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post in which she claimed to be a survivor of domestic abuse, the jury judged her claim to be false and defamatory.
On June 1, a jury awarded Johnny Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive penalties after a six-week trial.
