Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are officially divorced and single.

The actress had filed papers to end their 15-month union in May 2016. Court papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday detailed a splitting of marital assets and an agreement by Depp, 53, to pay a previously announced sum of $7 million to Heard, 30, that she said will be donated to charity.

The judge denied Depp’s request to impose a $100,000 sanction on Heard for allegedly delaying the proceeding. Depp will also pay $500,000 towards Heard’s legal fees, according to court papers.
A source told ‘The New York Post’ that, "The judge just said, ’Enough is enough. If you both want to be divorced, let’s just get this done.’ Both sides are paying their own legal fees. Depp hasn’t paid any instalments in his settlement so far, but now he is going to start paying."  

Heard’s attorney Pierce O’Donnell told the Post, "It is a great day, all Amber wanted was to be divorced and now she is. In the words of Gerald Ford, ’Our long national nightmare is over.’
The couple has no children together, but Heard will keep their dogs, Pistol and Boo, and a horse named Arrow.
