Amber Heard & Johnny Depp Settle Divorce & Domestic Violence Case, Release Statement

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have reportedly settled their divorce case, his rep confirms to Just Jared.

The 30-year-old actress has also dismissed her domestic violence restraining order petition due to the case being settled. The pair withdrew legal documents on Tuesday (August 16) for the domestic violence case, which was tied into the divorce case.

Johnny is reportedly paying Amber $7 million plus her legal fees.

“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains. There was never an 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,” a joint statement read.

TMZ was first to report the news.

    Amber Heard officially gold digging whore and liar

  • Just Saying

    7 million is three times what she has made in her whole “career”. I’m surprised she got so much though, I doubt she will donate that to any charity after she worked soooooo hard for that money.

  • Arwa M.

    Damage Control. Hope no one will hire this violent, alcoholic piece of sh*t

  • Sara

    Johnny lost.

  • Little Paper Stars

    Jeez, she’s so full it. Everything she’s done, she’s played out by manipulating the media. I don’t doubt Johnny has his problems and sure, he’s not perfect (tho I still don’t believe the physical abuse part of the story) but she’s manipulated and exploited the whole situation from the get go for her own gains. I truly hope that money does go to charity, and I seriously hope this is the end of her exploiting the situation. No interviews, no media, no book. She’s vile

    this is typical PR BS. How much is she donating ROTFLOL…and to what charity…the charity of “AH expensive lifestyle.” She cannot afford to live the lifestyle she had when married…Depp will always do well…his movies are very unique and quirky and there is place for them. She is just boring and a bad actress.

  • YupVideoFever

    Well, one dollar is still a donation, right? :)

  • Christian

    messed up. tmz reported johnny would not sign anything admitting to domestic violence. the “neither party” stuff is the compromise i guess, i’m not sure i would’ve signed

  • Christian

    you mean amber yeah i agree

  • joyyyyy

    I never doubted that Depp could be a violent man; what made me angry was people trying to turn this woman into a feminist martyr, a victim. It was never her intention to stand trial because of the violence, on contrary, she was in a violent marriage because the money. All premeditated since the beginning, taking pictures making videos. In the end this two deserve themself. John still rich, now she is millionaire and I am still very much poor. EVERYTHING STILL NORMAL.

  • Christian

    and chump change for johnny. hopefully he doesnt get michael jackson’d, where the public thinks a settlement means you’re guilty

  • Christian

    if by violent marriage you mean johnny slammed some cabinets then yeah

  • LOL Blue

    no, the wine glass lost.

  • VanityInsecurity

    I guess it was about the money after all.. I srly doubt she donates any money to charity.. And what did she gain really? The entire public thinks she is a horrid human being.. you lost Amber. And the only reason JD paid was cus of no-prenup policy & she probably will go through the 7 mill quickly being that her career is over.

  • joyyyyy

    I said because their joint statement “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile”.

  • Will

    Well I don’t think anyone believes her for one second but she was manipulating him and recording him she must have been planning it for quite some time. Sad really, next time choose a more decent woman and your life will be a lot easier.

  • Ashley

    Thank god this is over

  • Will

    Your right in the end she will lose, no one will hire her after what she did and she’ll blow threw that money thinking there will be more waiting for her. Her reputation is shot.

  • AeeJay

    7 million is peanuts to JD he makes that in his sleep.

  • LOL Blue

    He was already guilty to the “feminists” who think all men are evil.

  • 777

    This statement would’ve been nice 2 months ago. After everything that happened, no one buys any word that is written there.

  • willowbee

    Amber Heard is a conniving witch. I’m not fond of Johnny Depp either as I really believe he needs to seek help and check into rehab. Two people using each other. Sad.

  • Martyna

    Isn’t she playing female lead in Aquaman and Justice League?

  • Amy

    She was SO afraid for her life but now she forgets it for 7 million? This is why I always insisted she wanted money.
    She’s an idiot for playing with something as sensitive and hard as domestic violence. It is not something to play.
    And she’s going to donate the money? Yeah, sure. For the Amber Heard Fundation.
    Amber, you’re a horrible person. And I really hope that now everyone realizes that.

  • Celina

    Team Amber. I believe she got way more than that figure they’re calling. Probably the real figure is confidential. Depp’s camp seriously did not want to go to court. Who knows what kind of horror videos would have been leaked next huh? Anyway congrats Amber. You’re finally free!

  • LindSAY

    I hope there’s a gag order on her.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    She won’t donate a thing to charity. She blows 50k per month on her ‘necessities’. Very sad that Depp settled but atleast she didn’t geta huge chunk. 7 million is nothing for him and she will easily blow it.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Exactly. She has cost herself future work. How long will that 7 million last?

  • GroundControl500

    Looks like she got exactly what she said she was looking for. Her fair legal share of the marital earnings. There is nothing manipulative or gold diggerish about that at all. Depp made that relationship intolerable and she got out as soon as she realized he was never going to seek help or get better – especially with that paid retinue with its sycophants covering up for him and publicly trying to smear her and make him look good.

    I knew Depp would never go under oath and allow himself to be questioned under oath. His whole shtick was a bluff to save face and protect his career and image.

    His statement debunks his team’s and stupid fans’ accusations that Heard lied about her accusations of abuse – as if anyone with half a brain couldn’t tell this already with the photos of her injuries, the texts, the video, the eyewitnesses.

    Depp is in dire need of an intervention. He is nothing but a sad, pathetic mess. Nice example for his children. 🙄

  • GroundControl500

    You really don’t get how this works do you? She got what she wanted which was her legal share of the marital earnings.

    Your misogyny toward this woman who clearly was in an abusive realtionship with an out of control alcoholic, drug addled control freak is scary.

    So now she – she who did nothing wrong – is supposed to give all her earnings away? Not just some of it, mind you, but ALL of it to satisfy the mental cretins who worship this drunken celebrity.

    Damn I hope you’re not old enough to vote. Or have children.

  • GroundControl500

    And your misogyny continues. Duly noted.

  • GroundControl500

    What? No racist tirades against me?

    Bless your stupid, uneducated heart.

  • GroundControl500

    Not at that figure. No way did Johnny want to have to testify under oath and risk suborning perjury. I knew he’d call it quits before any hesring or trial came.

    Sounds like she got her legal share of the marital earnings so for that Johnny couldn’t make his ridiculous demands.

    It’s her life and she can talk about it all she wants.

  • GroundControl500

    Probably spends that much in his sleep as well. It’s expensive to live his OTT life and to pay for all those sycophants to protect you from yourself.

  • GroundControl500

    What exactly did SHE do? I take it you think Johnny did nothing wrong. SMDH

  • GroundControl500

    The deliberately blind see only when they want to see. Keepfvcking that chicken, pal.

  • sarah

    she’s not a female lead, she plays Aquaman’s love interest, that’s all. we’ll probably see her five seconds in total.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Go die of cancer you dumb bitch. I thought you had blocked me? Pathetic Jolie loon!

  • GroundControl500

    I see you missed all the evidence that showed Depp was abusive and violent. Keep living in that imaginary world.

  • GroundControl500

    No. This proves she’s not. And Depp’s very telling admission that she didn’t lie is all you need to see she told the truth.

  • GroundControl500

    FALP FALP FALP. What can I say? You need to get a dog. 😂😂😂

    Tell me, why is your idols 2nd oldest son wearing a T-shirt of a vulgar, X-rated movie meant for the 18+ crowd?

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Won’t happen. Alot of his movies earn a ton of money and that’s the bottom line in that business….money.

  • Arwa M.

    No I was clear and wrote “violent, alcoholic” which is exactly how people should address the “sweet, kind” Johnny Depp. And by now, no one can argue against these claims.

  • MissyMiss

    I believe her.

  • Leyzzle Swizzle

    7 millions??? Got him
