The legal battle
between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp is over.
The exes settled their case on Tuesday, and 30-year-old Heard withdrew her request for a domestic violence restraining order against the 53-year-old actor, ET can confirm.
"Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love," Heard and Depp said in a joint statement. "Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains. There was never an intent of physical or emotional harm."
"Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future," the statement continues. "Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity."
A source tells ET that it was "the photo that came out yesterday [of Depp's severed finger
] and Johnny being anxious about it going to trial that prompted the quick settlement." Depp agreed to pay Heard $7 million to settle the case, which includes attorney's fees, according to TMZ
Heard's lawyers, Samantha F. Spector and Joseph P. Koenig said they were "pleased" with the outcome of the case in a statement on Tuesday.
"We are very pleased that this matter has been settled and Amber has been vindicated in the Court of Public Opinion," the statement reads. "The case was incredibly challenging and demanding on everyone involved, but mostly on Amber who showed great grace and strength under fire. It was an honor to represent her."
However, Heard's lawyers later retracted and apologized for that comment. "The statement made today on behalf of myself and Joseph Koenig was made without the knowledge or approval of Amber Heard. The statement is untrue and we retract it, without qualification," Spector said. "My assertion that Amber Heard has been vindicated in the court of public opinion is not true. We regret the error and apologize to Johnny Depp."
Heard filed for divorce from Depp
in May after one year of marriage. She was granted a temporary restraining order against him on May 27, after alleging that Depp was both emotionally and physically abusive towards her
throughout their relationship. Depp's attorney previously responded to Heard's allegations, claiming the actress is "attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse."
Leading up to this settlement, a video that appears to show Depp throwing a wine bottle and glass during an argument with Heard was leaked last Friday. Heard denied releasing the tape
, while Depp sources maintained it was "heavily edited."
On Monday, there were also reports of a gruesome incident where Depp allegedly severed his finger
in March 2015 during an argument with Heard in which he allegedly accused her of cheating with actor Billy Bob Thornton. Heard and 61-year-old Thornton worked together on 2008's The Informers
and the yet-to-be-released film, London Fields
Sources told ET at the time that Depp had punched a wall
during an argument with Heard, after which he had to halt production of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
in Australia, and return to the United States to have a pin put into his finger.
