Actress Amber Heard has paid her ex-husband Johnny Depp $1 million in the settlement, a year after their trial case to close out the Virginia defamation case.
A source says Johnny Depp will give the money to five charities: Make-A-Film Foundation, The Painted Turtle, Red Feather, Tetiaroa Society, and Amazonia Fund Alliance, reports the People.
After both Depp and Heard made appeals following the June 1, 2022 verdict, they decided to drop them and reached a settlement that was announced in December.
In a statement at the time, Heard, 37, said the “very difficult decision” to settle was “not an act of concession.”
Heard said she was “exposed to a type of humiliation that I simply cannot re-live” during the live-televised trial and she “simply cannot go through that for a third time.”
Also in December, Depp’s attorneys Benjamin Chew and Camille Vazquez issued a statement about the settlement.
Depp made a public appearance on the opening day of the Cannes Film Festival last month.
Meanwhile, Heard, who now lives in Spain with her daughter, will attend Italy’s 69th Taormina Film Festival for the world premiere of her movie In the Fire on June 24.
