Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's divorce has been finalised after 18 months of marriage.

According to court documents obtained by People magazine, the actress will be paid £5.6 million and will keep the couple's two dogs, Pistol and Boo and a horse. She will also keep two cars – a Ford Mustang and 2015 Range Rover, while the Pirates of the Caribbean actor will retain over 40 vehicles as well as properties in LA, Paris and a private island in the Bahamas. Amber has previously confirmed that she plans to donate the money from the settlement to two charities – the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. Speaking about the settlement, her lawyer said it was a "great day" for the star. He said: "All Amber wanted was to be divorced and now she is." Amber filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences" back in May, and requested a restraining order a few days later after claiming that her then-husband had been physically abusive, with an event in December 2015 in which she "truly feared that my life was in danger."

Amber and Johnny's divorce has been finalised

She wrote: "I live in fear that Johnny Depp will return to [our home] unannounced to terrorise me, physically and emotionally. During the entirety of our relationship Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me. I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him." After reaching a settlement in August last year, the pair released a joint statement on the split which read: "Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. There was never an intent of physical or emotional harm. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gains."
