OREANDA-NEWS  Hollywood actor Johnny Depp won a key victory in the seven million case against ex-wife Amber Heard. Now the charitable organization must disclose information about the donations of the ex-wife of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, writes USA TODAY. 

"Mr. Depp is very pleased with the court's decision" , -said the actor's lawyer Benjamin Chu.

The actress was supposed to donate to charity the amount received as a result of her divorce from Depp. A New York court ordered the American Civil Liberties Union to release documents confirming Amber Heard's donations.

Johnny Depp's advocates said his ex-wife lied about donations to a children's hospital in Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union. All this could have influenced the outcome of the libel case against the British tabloid The Sun, which the actor lost in 2020. In 2018, the publication published a scandalous article about the beatings in the Depp and Heard family. Foreign media claimed that Embert was a victim of domestic violence, allegedly the actor repeatedly tortured his wife.

The unfolding scandal around Johnny Depp almost ruined his career. The Netflix platform has removed all films with the actor from its filing cabinet. And the creators of the movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3" removed the celebrity from the main role.
