Johnny Depp: Divorce Settlement with Heard
In 2016, Heard asked for a divorce and got a temporary order to keep Depp away from her. In August 2016, a decision was made about how much the settlement would be, and Heard said she would give half of the money to the ACLU and the other half to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
The final terms of the settlement, which were reached in 2017, said that Depp had to pay Heard $7 million by the beginning of 2018.

Johnny owns a private 45-acre island in the Bahamas that hasn’t been built on much. The island does have a house that is 3,500 square feet and is surrounded by six beaches with white sand and palm trees. The yacht Vajoliroja, which is 156 feet long and runs on steam, is docked in a private harbour on the island. The island home is said to be eco-friendly because it runs on solar and hydrogen power and was built using green building techniques and sustainable architecture.
