The defamation suit between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is resolved for $1 million. To resolve Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit against her, Amber Heard has agreed to pay him $1 million.

By signing the agreement, Depp allows Heard, 36, to forego the full $10.35 million judgment that a jury had awarded him.

The source claims that the seven-figure settlement, which Heard’s insurance policy will cover, will end the bitter court battles between the ex-couples that started soon after their 2016 breakup.

She wrote on Instagram on Monday, “After much thought, I have made a tough decision to settle the defamation case brought against me by my ex-husband in Virginia.

“I must emphasize that I never selected this. My life as I knew it was destroyed because I stood up for my truth, “The sentence reads. When women come forward, they are re-victimized in amplified ways, as evidenced by the vilification I have experienced on social media.

Heard added that she is free to discuss the case and her allegations of abuse without restriction under the terms of the agreement.

She wrote, “I have not admitted; this is not an act of concession.

A source close to Depp noted that if she keeps alleging abuse against her ex-husband, she may face further defamation claims.

Benjamin Chew and Camille Vasquez, Depp’s attorneys, claimed that their client’s case was never about money.

They released a statement saying, “We are pleased to officially close the door on this painful chapter for Mr. Depp, who made clear throughout this process that his priority was about bringing the truth to light.”

According to his attorneys, Depp promised to donate the $1 million payment to charity.

The source continued, “There is now a final judgment finding that her allegations of abuse against Mr. Depp were untrue. She will never be able to appeal that decision, which is now final.

The star of “Danish Girl” claimed that she signed the agreement after “losing faith in the American legal system.”

She compared the case in the United States to Depp’s unsuccessful lawsuit against the Sun newspaper for calling him a “wife-beater.” Heard spoke in court on the publisher’s behalf, and her abuse claims were verified.

She explained why she decided against pursuing her appeal: “Even if my US appeal is successful, the best outcome would be a re-trial where a new jury would have to consider the evidence again.” “I can’t possibly go through that again twice,”
