Johnny Depp has received Amber Heard’s $1 million settlement payment, thereby ending their Virginia defamation case a year later.

According to a source close to Depp, the actor, 60, will donate $200,000 to five charity of his choosing. Make-A-Film Foundation, The Painted Turtle, Red Feather, Tetiaroa Society, and Amazonia Fund Alliance are the organizations.

Following the June 1, 2022 ruling, both Depp and Heard chose to forgo their appeals and seek a settlement, which was disclosed in December.

Heard, 37, stated in a statement at the time that the “very difficult decision” to settle was “not an act of concession.”

“It is critical for me to emphasize that I never chose this,” Heard wrote. “I defended my truth, and in doing so, I destroyed my life as I knew it.” The vilification I have encountered on social media is an exaggerated example of how women are re-victimized when they speak up.”

“Now I finally have an opportunity to emancipate myself from something I tried to leave over six years ago on terms I can accept,” she concluded. “I have not admitted anything. This is not a sign of weakness. Moving forward, there are no constraints or gags on my voice.”

During the live-televised trial, Heard said she was “exposed to a type of humiliation that I simply cannot re-live,” and she “simply cannot go through that for a third time.”

“I cannot afford to risk an impossible bill — one that is not only financial, but also psychological, physical, and emotional,” she said at the time. Women should not have to fear violence or bankruptcy for speaking their truth, yet this is all too prevalent.”

“… I will not be intimidated, disheartened, or discouraged from speaking the truth because of what happened.” Nobody can and will ever take that away from me. “My voice will always be the most valuable asset I have,” Heard remarked.

Depp’s attorneys, Benjamin Chew and Camille Vazquez, also made a statement on the settlement in December.

“The jury’s unanimous decision and the resulting judgment in favor of Mr. Depp against Ms. Heard remain fully in place,” they stated. “The $1 million payment, which Mr. Depp is pledging and will (actually) donate to charities, reinforces Ms. Heard’s recognition of the end of the legal system’s rigorous pursuit of justice.”
