Heard and Depp were married for 15 months before calling it quits in May. Shortly after, the actress claimed she was a repeated victim of domestic violence at the hands of Depp and soon the pair were entangled in a nasty divorce saga. They reached a settlement in August, with Depp agreeing to pay Heard $6.8 million, but after a recent mix-up, the actor is taking a step back. Heard plans on donating all the money to charity. –JASON LAVERIS VIA GETTY IMAGES

We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on.
