Johnny Depp and his estranged wife Amber Heard have reached a private settlement in their acrimonious divorce proceedings.

“Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise star Depp, 53, and Heard, 30, said in a joint statement Tuesday. “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.”

Heard, who will play Aquaman’s love interest Mera in next year’s “Justice League Part One,” met Depp while they were filming the 2011 film “The Rum Diary.” They later began dating and wed on Feb. 3, 2015. She filed for divorce on May 23 after 15 months of marriage. They have no children together.

Depp had been in a 14-year relationship with French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children, daughter Lily-Rose, born May 27, 1999, and son John, called Jack, born April 9, 2002. In June 2012, Paradis and Depp announced they had broken up.

He was married to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1985, and successively engaged to actresses Jennifer Grey, Sherilyn Fenn and Winona Ryder. In 1994 he began a tempestuous four-year relationship with model Kate Moss.
