(Newser) – The drama in the breakup of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard appears to be over. TMZ reports that the former couple has reached a settlement in their divorce that calls for Depp to pay Heard $7 million. As part of the deal, Heard has dropped her domestic violence case against Depp, whom she had accused of physically assaulting her. "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love," says a statement released by the couple, adding that "there was never an intent of physical or emotional harm." It ends by saying that Heard will donate money from the settlement to charity, though it does not provide specifics. (She may have a new billionaire boyfriend.)
