When it comes to Hollywood divorces, things can get messy fast, especially when there’s a fortune at stake. Splitting up big bucks can lead to drawn-out court battles and hefty settlements. And don’t even get us started on prenuptial problems!
Take the whirlwind divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Despite being married for a mere 15 months, Amber walked away with a cool $7 million settlement, which she promptly donated to charity. But the drama was far from over. After Amber accused Johnny of domestic violence, he turned around and sued her for defamation. The highly publicized trial ended in Johnny being awarded $15 million in damages. She initially appealed the case, before settling with her ex in Dec. 2022, as reported by the LA Times. The tables were turned back in Nov. 2022, when Johnny lost a libel case against The Sun. The newspaper had labeled him a “wife-beater,” and the judge found the claim to be substantially true.
