Amber Heard accidentally admits she LIED UNDER OATH?

In her first sitdown interview since her blockbuster defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp, Amber Heard was interrogated by Savannah Guthrie about being “caught in a lie” over her commitment to give her $7 million divorce settlement to charity.

The NBC Today anchor pressed Ms Heard on the inconsistencies between her vow and the actual money received, wondering whether this cast doubt on the jury’s “credibility.”

“Do you believe it was you getting caught in a lie to the jury sitting there?” Ms Guthrie, whose husband works for Mr Depp’s legal team, said.

Ms Heard defended the controversy surrounding the charitable donation, claiming that the trial was used to try to portray her as a “liar” and arguing that she shouldn’t have had to pledge her entire settlement in order for people to believe her allegations of abuse against her ex-husband in the first place.

Ms Heard stated in August 2016 that the couple’s $7 million divorce settlement will be shared evenly between the ACLU and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

During the six-week trial, the Aquaman actress came under intense scrutiny over the pledge after it emerged that the ACLU had so far received less than half of the $3.5m payment it was promised.

“You had promised to donate $7m of your divorce settlement to charity,” said Ms Guthrie.

“It was revealed at trial that you haven’t done so yet however they played a tape where you state on air that you have donated it.”

She asked: “Do you think that raised questions as to your credibility with the jury?”
