The long-running issue of the divorce and domestic violence between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, come to an end

The long dispute that been carrying out in the court between Johnny Depp and, now, former wife, Amber Heard finally comes to a halt with the settlement of divorce case and with Amber withdrawing her claim of domestic violence and physical abuse against the Pirates of The Caribbean actor, Johhny Depp.

Amber had filed a complaint of physical and verbal abuse against Johnny Depp while she sought for restraining orders and took legal actions for getting a divorce. However, after many court hearing and gruesome revelations, the divorce was peacefully settled but Amber withdrew her complaint of abuse.

This happened a day before the hearing of restraining order was scheduled. Earlier this year, when Heard had attended a court session with a bruise in her right cheek, the judge had refrained Johnny from calling her and had ordered him to stay 100 yards away from her.

The hearing began on Wednesday, however, Pierce O’Donnell who is Amber’s attorney, as well as, Laura Wasser and Blair Berk, Depp’s appointed lawyers, did not release much information soon after, until recently.

Amber Heard has, time and again, confessed that she did not file a case for domestic violence in the greed of bagging a hefty share of Johnny’s properties. In fact, she has conveyed her intensions of donating the money from their divorce to a charity organisation.

After the settlement, Johnny Depp and Amber heard collective released a statement that read “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love,” a joint statement released by Heard and Depp said. “Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.”

The statement also read that “Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future”. Johnny’s good wishes were not to be spotted on the documents.
