Amber Heard has dropped her lawsuit against ex-husband Johnny Depp’s friend Doug Stanhope.

The 30-year-old actress filed a defamation case against Stanhope in June, in which she alleged that the comedian had accused her of blackmailing Depp in an online column he wrote titled “Johnny Depp Is Being Blackmailed by Amber Heard – Here’s How I Know.”

“He is sorry there was a falling out, but is happy that everyone is taking the high road and moving on,” continued Gingras.
