Johnny Depp and Amber Heard settle divorce
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have settled their divorce case — the day after it surfaced that the jealous actor scrawled the names of men he thought she was sleeping with on the walls of their villa in his own blood, sources told The Post on Tuesday.
Depp, 53, agreed to pay Heard “in the region of $8 million” to settle, a source said.
After the bloody-finger photos surfaced, “Johnny freaked out, and he didn’t want to face trial or any further revelations,” the source said.
“The settlement was inked very late last night,” around midnight Los Angeles time.
Sources told The Post on Monday that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor accidentally chopped off the tip of his middle finger during a jealous argument with Heard about a month after they married in February 2015.
Depp, who also starred in the flick “Edward Scissorhands,” then dipped the bleeding digit in blue paint and scrawled the names of the men — most notably actor Billy Bob Thornton, sources said.
Heard, 30, also famously accused a drunken, high Depp of attacking her in May, producing a sensational photo of her with a bruised eye that she said she received when he bashed her in the face with his iPhone.
The warring pair had been due back in court Wednesday for the start of a hearing over domestic-violence allegations brought by Heard against Depp.
As part of their settlement, the actress dismissed the petition “with prejudice,” meaning she can’t file it again.
“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love,” the pair said in a joint statement Tuesday.
“Neither party has lied nor made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.
“Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter.”
