Celebrity actress Amber Heard has paid the $1 million she owed her ex-husband, celebrity Johnny Depp, following her loss in a defamation trial, major outlets reported. The trial, which took place in Virginia in June 2022, ruled that Heard had defamed Depp in a Washington Post op-ed discussing domestic abuse. Although Depp was not directly named in the op-ed, the jury awarded him $15 million in damages, later reduced to $10,350,000 due to statutory limitations. In her countersuit, Heard was awarded $2 million in damages.
After years of legal battles, Depp and Heard settled their defamation claims against each other in December. As part of the settlement, Depp agreed to receive $1 million, which was paid by Heard’s insurance company, according to major sources. Depp reportedly plans to distribute the payout evenly among five charities: the Make-A-Film Foundation, The Painted Turtle, the Red Feather, Tetiaroa Society, and the Amazonia Fund Alliance.

This payment seems to mark the end of the protracted divorce and legal disputes between the former couple, which have spanned over seven years. Depp and Heard married in 2015 but separated the following year amid allegations of abuse and infidelity.
Meanwhile, the celebrity actress is making efforts to revive her acting career and is scheduled to appear at the Taormina Film Festival in Italy for the premiere of her new film “In the Fire.” This event will be her first red carpet appearance since the defamation trial.
On a different note, Johnny Depp celebrated his 60th birthday recently, a year after his highly publicized defamation trial against Amber Heard. Over 40,000 people sang “Happy Birthday” to him while he performed in Bucharest, Romania, with The Hollywood Vampires, his band. Depp expressed his gratitude for the gesture and shared his contentment with his current state of life.
Despite his legal battles, the celebrity actor has been actively involved in his career. His French-language film, Jeanne Du Barry, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and he is currently working on a movie called Modi, which is being produced by Al Pacino.
