“Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm. Amber wishes the best for Johnny in the future."
"Amber will be donating financial proceeds from the divorce to a charity. There will be no further public statements about this matter”, the statement read.
It was gathered in earlier reports that the pair had been lining up witnesses in anticipation of their court date.
