Amber Heard on Johnny Depp Abuse Allegations: It's NOT About Money!

by at .

The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard divorce has been one of the ugliest and most divisive in history.

Of course, this is to be expected after the scathing domestic abuse allegations Heard has lodged against Depp.

While Heard has accused Depp of physically abusing her on a number of occasions, Depp claims that his ex has conjured up these claims in a play to get more money out of the divorce settlement.

In fact, comedian Doug Stanhope, a close friend of Depp's, accused Heard of blackmailing the actor for a juicy settlement. (Heard has since filed a defamation lawsuit against Stanhope for his allegations.)

But sources close to Heard say money is the farthest thing from her mind, according to a new report by TMZ.

According to the site, Heard's top concern is protection from Depp, and that a cash grab is "the lowest priority" in this entire debacle.

The estranged couple's legal teams have been negotiating a settlement, with the last offer coming from Depp's camp.

He has offered spousal support of about $50,000 per month for eight months.

Heard has not yet responded to the offer, which some assume means she's holding out for more money.

However, sources say the reason she has yet to react to the offer is because it comes with a rider that Heard takes issue with.

The offer reportedly includes a mutual restraining order, which Heard will not allow since she was the one subjected to the abuse.

Heard has supplied photos of her bruises to the court as well as text messages to Depp's assistant Stephen Deuters that appear to confirm past instances of abuse.

Deuters rushed to his employer's defense, claiming that he never sent the texts and the screenshots were doctored.

Unfortunately for Depp, an expert has authenticated the text messages as real.
