Horse called Arrow will also remain with Amber Heard. Depp, as part of the divorce settlement, will get to keep vintage cars and motorcycle collection – totaling to nearly 40. He will also retain the possession of real estate assets and his private island in the Bahamas. Heard, as part of the agreement, will drop the request for continued restraining order against Depp. However, the duo cannot discuss their relationship status publicly, since they are bound by confidentiality provision.
Heard has said in her filing that she had endured excessive emotional and physical abuse from Johnny Depp, an allegation his lawyers denied. Heard had asked for $50,000 a month in spousal support, which was later retracted by her Attorney. Depp’s lawyer said Heard was attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse. Now that the divorce is final, Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, said – “All pleased to put this unpleasant chapter in Mr Depp and his family’s lives behind them”. Amber’s lawyer Pierce O’Donnel added – “All Amber wanted was to be divorced and now she is”.
