Fiji Sun - - Showbiz -

Los An­ge­les: Ac­tors Johnny Depp and Am­ber Heard pri­vately set­tled their di­vorce case, the ac­tors said in a joint state­ment on Tues­day, a day ahead of a court hear­ing on the sta­tus of a re­strain­ing or­der that Heard had filed against Depp. The set­tle­ment end­ing the 15-month mar­riage comes af­ter weeks of highly pub­li­cised claims of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence by Heard, 30, and coun­ter­claims of fi­nan­cial black­mail­ing by Depp, 53. “Our re­la­tion­ship was in­tensely pas­sion­ate and at times volatile but al­ways bound by love,” Depp and Heard said in a state­ment. “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.” The state­ment said Heard “will be do­nat­ing fi­nan­cial pro­ceeds from the di­vorce to a char­ity” and that there would no fur­ther pub­lic com­ment. Depp, one of Hol­ly­wood’s top ac­tors and box-of­fice draws with fran­chises such as “Pi­rates of

the Caribbean,” mar­ried Heard, known for “Fri­day Night Lights,” in Fe­bru­ary 2015 af­ter meet­ing on the set of the 2011 film “The Rum Diary.”
