Johnny Depp And Amber Heard’s Divorce Is Final
After an ugly, nearly eight-month battle, the divorce between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is final.
“It is a great day,” Heard’s attorney Pierce O’Donnell told Us Weekly Friday. “All Amber wanted was to be divorced and now she is.”
Heard filed for divorce against the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor in May of 2016. The former couple settled for $7 million in August. The “Danish Girl” actress tried to renegotiate the settlement with Depp, subsequently delaying the divorce. Depp then filed legal documents requesting Heard pay his $100,000 in attorney’s fees for delaying the divorce proceeding.
The judge reportedly “rejected Johnny’s request for Amber to pay his attorney fees,” according to an inside source and the original settlement terms will be enforced.
Heard previously promised to donate the entirety of her settlement with Depp to charity, and according to her lawyer she still plans to do so. The actress already gave $350,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union and plans to donate the remainder of her $7 million settlement once she receives it.
“The settlement documents are being finalized and will be signed this week,” O’Donnell told Us Weekly. “Johnny is obligated by the settlement to pay Amber, and she in turn will honor her pledges to Children’s Hospital and the American Civil Liberties Union.”
