The Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) has confirmed that Amber Heard did donate part of her divorce settlement to the charity after promising that she would following her split from Johnny Depp.

The 31-year-old actress divorced Johnny in 2016 and won a whopping $7 million in her settlement, which she promised she would split between two charities, American Civil Liberties Union, and CHLA.

And now, CHLA have published a report for 2017 which listed "Ms. Amber Heard" on its "Honor Roll of Donors", which indicated she had donated an undisclosed amount within the bracket of $1 million to $5 million.

The report stated: "We are honored to acknowledge our extraordinary donors for their generosity during fiscal year 2017. On behalf of all the children and families whose lives you have impacted, and everyone at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, we offer our sincere thanks. (sic)"

Amber and Johnny, 54, released a joint statement after reaching their divorce settlement in August 2016 - before their divorce was officially finalised in January 2017 - in which it was stated Amber would be making the charitable donation.

It read: "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.

"Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter."

Since divorcing Johnny, Amber has since enjoyed a romance with Elon Musk, which came to an end last year, before the pair reconciled and split again at the start of this year.

Previously, Elon said of their first split: "I just broke up with my girlfriend. It hurt bad. Well, she broke up with me more than I broke up with her, I think ...

"'I never want to be alone. That's what I would say [as a child], 'I don't want to be alone.' I will never be happy without having someone. Going to sleep alone kills me. It's not like I don't know what that feels like: Being in a big empty house, and the footsteps echoing through the hallway, no one there - and no one on the pillow next to you. How do you make yourself happy in a situation like that? Is there anybody you think I should date? It's so hard for me to even meet people. I'm looking for a long-term relationship. I'm looking for a serious companion or soulmate, that kind of thing."
