After news of the settlement broke, Spector and fellow attorney Joseph P. Koenig released a statement expressing that they were "pleased" with the outcome of the case, and saying that the 30-year-old actress had been "vindicated in the Court of Public Opinion."
Later in the day, Spector fully retracted the comment in a statement released to ET. Spector said that the earlier comments were "made without the knowledge or approval of Amber Heard."
"The statement is untrue and we retract it, without qualification. My assertion that Amber Heard has been vindicated in the court of public opinion is not true," Spector's statement continued. "We regret the error and apologize to Johnny Depp."
"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."
