Johnny Depp and Amber Heard settle divorce.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have settled their divorce, saying neither of them intended to cause the other any physical or emotional harm.

In a joint statement, the pair acknowledged their relationship had been volatile.

"Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love," it read.

Lawyers for Heard filed a motion on Tuesday to dismiss a temporary restraining order against Depp.

News of the divorce settlement came just a day before a hearing regarding the restraining order was due to begin.
The temporary order had ordered Depp not to contact Heard, and stay 100 yards away from her, after she accused him of striking her and throwing a mobile phone during a fight earlier this year.

The Hollywood star, 53, had always denied abuse allegations made by his former wife.

Heard, 30, filed for divorce in May and obtained the temporary restraining order against Depp a few days later.
