After the divorce settlement, the former couple released a joint statement which read,

"Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm."

Heard also released an individual statement about the settlement amount saying,

“Money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully, help those less able to defend themselves.”

Recently, Heard who rose to stardom from 2008 movie Never Back Down shared a number of photos and video on social media sites including Snapchat and Twitter where she is seen visiting Happiness Again Center in Amman, Jordan. In the snaps, she is seen with kids giving them gifts and hugs.

The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) also shared pictures of Heard visiting the center.
