Settlement awards dogs and horse named Arrow to Heard along with $7m she plans to give to charity
Joyce said no one should be able to bypass biosecurity rules, even if they had been voted the world’s sexiest man twice.
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.
Neither actor will receive spousal support, and a confidentiality provision calls for them to refrain from discussing their relationship in interviews or on social media.
The judgment ends a marriage that lasted less than two years. The pair met on the set of the 2011 film The Rum Diary and married in February 2015, but separated in May 2016.
Depp denied he physically abused Heard. Police officers who responded to their apartment in May after a fight between the couple said they found no evidence of a crime.
“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love,” the actors said in a joint statement released after Heard dismissed her restraining order petition. “Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.”
On Friday Depp filed a lawsuit against The Management Group (TMG) over claims he has been the victim of “gross mismanagement” which has cost him “tens of millions of dollars”.
According to documents filed with the Los Angeles superior court, Depp, 53, claims the company and its owners, Joel and Robert Mandel, failed to properly pay his taxes, made unauthorised loans and overpaid for security and other services.
He has filed 11 complaints, including fraud, breach of contract and professional negligence, and is seeking damages of more than $25m.
The complaint states: “As a result of years of gross mismanagement and sometimes outright fraud, Mr Depp lost tens of millions of dollars and has been forced to dispose of significant assets to pay for TMG’s self-dealing and gross misconduct.
“In essence, TMG treated Mr Depp’s income as their own, available to either TMG or third parties to draw upon as desired.”
Michael Kump, representing TMG, said Depp’s lawsuit was a “fabrication” and the firm did “everything possible to protect Depp from his irresponsible and profligate spending”.
He also claimed the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor owed TMG $4.2m from a $5m loan it provided.
“His tactics and lawsuit will fail, and he will be forced to pay back the loan as promised,” Kump added.
