Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have finally settled their court case.
Amber Heard finally pays off the $1 million settlement Johnny Depp after one whole year, finally closing out their Virginia case.
Sources close to Depp stated that the 60-year-old actor will be donating the settlement to five charities of his choosing. The charities listed are Make-A-Film Foundation, The Painted Turtle, Red Feather, Tetiaroa Society, and Amazonia Fund Alliance.
Both Heard and Depp filed appeals after the court decision but they both decided to drop it and come to a settlement in December 2022..
In response to the settlement, Heard said that she made the "very difficult decision" to settle was "not an act of concession."
"It's important for me to say that I never chose this," Heard wrote. "I defended my truth, in doing so my life as I knew it was destroyed. The vilification I have faced on social media is an amplified version of the ways women are re-victimized when they come forward."
"Now I finally have an opportunity to emancipate myself from something I attempted to leave over six years ago and on terms I can agree to," she continued. "I have made no admission. This is not an act of concession. There are no restrictions or gags with respect to my voice moving forward."
Both of Depp's attorneys, Benjamin Chew and Camille Vazquez also issued a statement about the settlement. They said:
"The jury's unanimous decision and the resulting judgment in Mr. Depp's favor against Ms. Heard remain fully in place," they said. "The payment of $1 million — which Mr. Depp is pledging and will (actually) donate to charities — reinforces Ms. Heard's acknowledgment of the conclusion of the legal system's rigorous pursuit for justice."
