Depp divorce settled

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard settled their contentious divorce this week and the actress withdrew her allegations that the actor had been physically abusive towards her one day before a restraining order hearing was scheduled to begin. Both Depp (aged 53 years) and Heard (aged 30 years) issued a joint statement drawing a line under a saga, which has appalled, titillated and divided the film industry and fans. ‘‘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.’’ Heard filed for divorce in May and days later obtained a temporary restraining order accusing Depp of hitting her during a fight in their LA apartment. Depp denied he abused her, and police said they found no evidence of a crime. The statement said Heard would donate proceeds from the divorce to charity, without specifying how much, and struck a tone of reconciliation. “Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future.”
