Support Casper Foundation, from surgeon Casper van Eijck, has been researching pancreatic cancer for years. Derksen likes to contribute. “It is a side of him that may not be so prominent. Johan says what he thinks, that’s how we know him. But he has a small heart,” Zwanenburg tells Algemeen Dagblad.
There is no official settlement with Derksen. “There never was. He just transferred an amount in the past, that will be no different now. I have no contact with him about that. If I interfere with that, Johan says: There you have the director again.”
Derksen has a special relationship with the foundation. He previously worked with a benefit for Support Casper in the New Luxor. “Johan’s fee then went entirely to the foundation,” says Zwanenburg. “But also, for example, when he shot a commercial for TOTO. He transferred everything he earned before that to us.”
