Amber Heard’s lawyer retracts Johnny Depp settlement statement

So much for a seamless resolutAmber Heard and Johnny Deppion.

Amber Heard‘s lawyer has retracted the joint settlement statement released by her and newly ex-husband Johnny Depp yesterday.

In the initial statement, Amber’s attorney Samantha F. Spector and fellow lawyer Joseph P. Koenig stated that Amber was “vindicated in the Court of Public Opinion,” following the reported $7 million settlement the former spouses reached in court.

However, Spector has now issued a formal retraction to ABC News, saying that the statement was given “without the knowledge or approval” of her client.

“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,” she said. “We regret the error and apologize to Johnny Depp.”

The full settlement statement read, “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter.”

Johnny and Amber finally settled their drawn-out divorce yesterday after months of allegations by The Danish Girl actress against her then-estranged hubby, from whom she filed for divorce in May.

Although she accused the Alice in Wonderland actor of mental and physical abuse (claims his lawyer has vehemently denied), Amber withdrew her request for a domestic violence restraining order with prejudice, which means she cannot refile the case. According to TMZ, Johnny in turn agreed to pay Amber approximately $7 million, as well as cover her legal fees.

This news comes just a day after TMZ reported that Johnny wrote Billy Bob Thornton‘s name in blood during an argument with Amber in 2015, leading the media to speculate that an affair went on between the actress and the Bad Santa 2 actor. Billy Bob denied the allegations, calling them “completely false.”

What do you think — is it time for these exes to move on? Or is the drama just too juicy to pass up? Tell us below!

    Enough with these fools! I’d rather hear about how Joan Rivers’ corpse is doing.

    The problem with celebrity marriages is the age gap. She is young and has nothing in common with a man that much older. This marriage was pure impulse to energize her career.

    I don’t think she is giving that money to charity for a minute.

    7 million for 15 months. I would take some verbal abuse and put up with his eyeliner and stupid hats for that much. The finger however was really gross he is going to have to not touch anyone with that.

    Good, it’s finished! Now hopefully Johnny won’t marry another gold digging twat. And if he does he really needs to insist on a pre nup.

    Amber and Billy Bob? Perfect!
