Amber Heard compensates Johnny Depp with $1 million, actor will donate sum to charity

Johnny Depp received one million dollars from his ex-wife, Amber Heard, as a consequence of the highly publicised defamation lawsuit that the actress lost and the actor won. According to gossip site TMZ.com, Depp did not keep the money in a safe, but donated it to various charities.

The $1 million was divided into five parts of $200,000 each and given to various non-profit organisations. 

These include the 'Make-A-Film Foundation', which works to give film opportunities to disadvantaged young people, 'The Painted Turtle', a camp for sick children, 'Red Feather', an organisation that supports disenfranchised communities, 'Tetiaroa Society', which works to preserve natural ecosystems globally, and finally 'Amazonia Fund Alliance', which works to protect the Amazon.
