Amber Heard and Johnny Depp had a highly contested divorce.

During this time, Depp retained possession of their properties in Los Angeles, Paris and the Bahamas, as well as their vehicles and motorcycles. Although they had no children together, they shared two Yorkshire terrier dogs named Pistol and Boo, both of whom went to Heard. The “Aquaman” actor also kept his horse, Arrow.
