On Tuesday morning, Heard and Johnny Depp arrived at a settlement in their months-long, very contentious divorce battle.

The resolution came pretty swiftly and it included $7 million being given to Heard from her ex-husband

But Heard has now stunned the world and delivered a pretty clear message by taking that $7 million... and DONATING EVERY PENNY OF IT TO CHARITY.

"The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU, with a particular focus to stop violence against women, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years," Heard tells TMZ.

Why is this more than a mere kind gesture?

Because Heard has accused Depp of physically and emotionally abusing her throughout their relationship.

She first made these claims back in May, entering a courthouse at the time with bruises on her face.

As part of their settlement, Heard and Depp released a rather telling and fascinating joint statement.

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

Okay, fine, fair enough. They're acknowledging their rocky times, yet talking about their deep feelings for each other. Boiler plate stuff so far.

It continues: Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain.

This, of course, is a reference to those who think Heard made up her allegations of abuse in order to reap some kind of fiscal reward down the line.

Heard just shut those critics up one and for all with this incredible donation.

The statement also read: There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.

This is amazing. It's clearly referencing these same allegations and it can easily be interpreted as an admission on Depp's part that he DID get physical with Heard.

He's just trying to claim he loved her, he never meant for anything to be taken that far, yadda, yadda, yadda. The word "intent" is what's key here.

Finally: Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future. Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity.

And then she went ahead and did so!

In a separate statement obtained by People Magazine, Heard said the following:

"As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, 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."

She concluded:

"As reported in the media, the amount received in the divorce was $7 million and $7 million is being donated.

"This is over and above any funds that I have given away in the past and will continue to give away in the future."

That is over and beyond any funds nearly any celebrity has given to charity at once at any time in history.

We're pretty blown away here.

Days prior to this settlement being reached, the above video of Depp flipping out on Heard went viral.

It was followed by a report that Depp once cut off his own finger during an argument with the actress and use the sliced-off nub to scrawl a message on a mirror that accused Hear of cheating on him with Billy Bob Thornton.

Pretty insane stuff overall.

Heard and Depp

We can't say for certain that Depp really did abuse Heard.

Nearly no one outside of their marriage can state that at this point.

But considering the recent reports and rumors... considering the video above... considering their joint statement... and considering Heard's shocking donation, it must be asked:

Do you really have any doubt that Depp raised his hands to her?

Does this assumption change your view of Depp? Will it affect his career? How will Heard now be received by the public?

There are so many questions to ask oneself after the last several months of following Heard and Depp's ugly journey.

But Heard has to be admired and saluted by pretty much anyone and everyone after doing what she did here with $7 million.
