Los Angeles (Reuters): Hollywood Film star Johnny Depp 's disruptive divorce from actress Amber Heard was nail down on Friday, ending the couple's marriage after months of highly publicized claims by Heard of domestic violence and counterclaims from Depp of financial blackmail.
Court papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday detailed a splitting of marital assets and an agreement by Depp , 53, to pay a previously announced sum of $7 million to Heard , 30, that she said will be donated to charity.
She claimed in court filings that Depp was abusive to her throughout their marriage, culminating in an argument in May in which he hurled a cell phone into her face and shattered various objects in her apartment.
"Having his request for entry of the dissolution judgment granted today made it a particularly lucky Friday the 13th."
She also dropped her defamation lawsuit against Depp 's friend, comedian Doug Stanhope, over an article he had written accusing the actress of blackmailing and manipulating her estranged husband.
The divorce papers showed that Depp would retain sole possession of numerous real estate assets, including properties in Los Angeles, Paris and his private island in the Bahamas. He will also keep more than 40 vehicles and vessels, including vintage cars and his motorcycle collection.
Heard will maintain custody of her dogs Pistol and Boo, the two canines at the center of a scandal in Australia in which Heard pleaded guilty to falsifying travel documents to sneak her pets into the country in 2015 without proper quarantine procedures.
Court papers said Depp has paid $200,000 of the settlement so far, and will pay the rest over the course of the year.
The payments will be made from Depp 's compensation from his upcoming film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" and sale of some of his properties, the papers showed.
There was no immediate statement from Depp .
