Amber Heard is clearing out the last of her connections to Johnny Depp. After settling her domestic-violence lawsuit with her ex-husband last month, Heard has dropped her related defamation suit against comedian Doug Stanhope, according to a report from TMZ. After Heard’s accusations against Depp became public, Stanhope wrote a column for the Wrap, titled “Johnny Depp Is Being Blackmailed by Amber Heard — Here’s How I Know,” full of statements that Heard’s lawyers called “highly defamatory” and “very hurtful.” Meanwhile, Heard recently donated all $7 million from her settlement with Depp to charity.
