Amber Heard settles $1 million defamation case with Johnny Depp
The world recently witnessed a bittersweet end to the highly-publicized and controversial legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp.
After months of court proceedings, the former couple have reportedly reached a $1 million settlement in their defamation case.
The lawsuit stemmed from 2018, when Heard wrote an article for the Washington Post alleging she had been the victim of domestic abuse and that her ex-husband was the perpetrator of those acts.
In response, Depp filed a defamation suit against his ex-wife, citing emotional distress and damages to his career.
Ultimately, the two parties have agreed to come to an arrangement and avoid further litigation. According to sources, Heard will pay Depp $1 million in the settlement.
Additionally, Heard admits that the allegations against Depp were not what she intended, but that the events she described were personally difficult to recount.
