Actress Amber Heard announced last week that she would be donating the entirety of her $seven million divorce settlement from actor Johnny Depp to deserving charities, and Depp is perfectly fine with that. He's so okay with that plan that he's planning on sending her first settlement checks directly to the ACLU and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, so there.

Depp's rep told TMZ, "Ms. Heard's generosity in giving to these wonderful causes is deeply respected."

But Heard's lawyers smell a rat, suspecting Depp might be donating the money directly because he'd then get half of it back as a tax break. In fact, one of her lawyers spoke to TMZ as well, saying: "If Johnny wishes to change the settlement agreement, we must insist that he honor the full amount by donating $14 million to charity, which after accounting for his tax deduction, is equal to his $7 million payment obligation to Amber."

The actress, who filed a restraining order against Depp after accusing him of domestic violence, reportedly claimed she would be donating the settlement because "money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves."
