Heard withdrew her petition to extend a restraining order against Depp on Tuesday, according to her attorneys. The estranged couple then released a statement saying they
“have agreed to resolve their divorce proceeding privately.”
“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love,”
the statement read.
“Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain,”
the statement continued.
“There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.”
According to the statement, Heard will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity.
The pair, who met on the set of “The Rum Diary” in 2009, have been embroiled in a contentious split for months, with charges of bad behavior levied by both sides.
Two days after filing for divorce in May, Heard accused Depp of domestic violence and received a temporary restraining order against him. Depp has denied those accusations, and through his representatives, claimed Heard made up the abuse.
On Wednesday, the estranged couple had been due back in court for a hearing on whether the order would be extended.
Depp and Heard’s relationship was eventful.
