Johnny Depp Sells NFTs For $800K & Donates Money To Charity Since Amber Heard Didn’t

Johnny Depp has donated nearly $800,000 made from the sales of NFTs to four charities including one to which ex-wife Amber Heard pledged millions of dollars. His first NFT collection, called Never Fear Truth, launched earlier this year and has been incredibly successful, enabling him to make the donations.

  1. Amber Heard has not yet paid the $7 million she pledged. Following her divorce settlement with Depp, Heard vowed to donate the $7 million she received to The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the American Civil Liberties Union. However, she has not yet paid the full amount to either charity because of what she describes as financial difficulties.
  2. Depp announced his donations this week. The sale of some of the actor’s NFTs resulted in a pretty hefty profit, and his company announced this week that they’d be splitting the cash between four charities including The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. “We are pleased to be able to confirm that nearly $800,000 in total donations,” Never Fear Truth told RadarOnline in a statement.
  3. Three other charities also received sizeable donations. Money from the sales of Johnny Depp’s NFTs also went to Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, and The Footprint Coalition, all of whom will have welcomed the cash.
  4. Never Fear Truth is a celebration of Depp’s art. The company describes Johnny Depp’s art as “an important outlet for his creativity” and describes it as being “at the intersection of Pop Art and Street Art.” It adds: “The result is a series of iconic images of media figures that have moved beyond the impersonal graphic simplicity of Pop Art. It’s Pop Art with feeling.”
