It’s a beautiful day, now that I don’t have to report on these divorce proceedings no mo.
The divorce case between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp settled yesterday, which means Amber has dismissed her domestic violence restraining order petition against Johnny, and with prejudice (meaning she can never re-file it). CASE CLOSED!
So what’s the damage? Well, Johnny agreed to pay Amber approximately $7 million to walk away (that includes attorneys’ fees). According to TMZ, $8 million was once on the table, but 7 million isn’t too shabby.
Johnny’s lawyers, Laura Wasser and Blair Berk, along with Amber’s lawyers, Pierce O’Donnell and Samantha Spector, crafted a settlement after Amber’s extensive deposition on Monday. And they all released a statement, saying:
“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.”
Interesting, because essentially it means neither made false statements. Also, it doesn’t specify what charity or how much of Amber’s money she’s donating. Hmmm.
What do you think of this settlement? Jubilant? Relieved? WEIGH IN BELOW!
