Film star Johnny Depp's tumultuous divorce from actress Amber Heard was finalized Friday, ending the couples marriage after months of bitter dispute between the pair. Heard accused Depp of domestic violence and there were counter claims from Depp of financial blackmail. Court papers filed in Los Angeles Friday detailed a splitting of martial assets.
Depp also agreed to pay a previously announced sum of $7 million to 30 year-old Heard. The actress said she will donate the sum to charity. Heard filed for divorce in May after 15 months in marriage, and days later obtained a temporary restraining order against Depp. That order has been dismissed as part of the divorce settlement.
The divorce papers showed that Depp would retain sole possession of numerous estate assets while Heard will remain custody of her dogs, Pistol and Boo. Heard's attorney hailed the finalization as a great day for his client adding all Amber wanted was to be divorced, and now she is. There was no immediate statement from Depp or his representatives.
