Amber Heard celebrated the end of her bitter divorce battle with celebrity friends Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne in London.

Amber Heard was spotted partying with celebrity pals Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne days after finalising her divorce from Johnny Depp.

The 30-year-old actress ended her three-month legal battle with the actor earlier this week (beg15Aug16), and as part of their official marriage termination agreement she received a hefty payout of $7 million (£5.4 million).

During the divorce proceedings Amber alleged she was physically abused by Depp throughout their 15-month marriage, and following the settlement The Danish Girl star announced she would be donating the money to a domestic violence charity and a children's hospital.

Amber was spotted in London on Thursday (18Aug16) with friends Margot, Margot's boyfriend Tom Ackerley and Cara attending a Rolling Stones exhibition. The group later grabbed a bite to eat in upscale Kensington, E! News reports, and were pictured laughing and joking as they tried to get into a nightclub in Marylebone, according to an eyewitness, but were not allowed in.

They laughed off the embarrassing incident and headed to London hotspot Chiltern Firehouse to carry on with the festivities.

Amber said in a statement, obtained by TMZ.com, that she would be using the settlement from ex-husband Johnny to support charities close to her heart.

"The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), with a particular focus on helping defend battered women, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years. Hopefully this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most," she said.

Less than a week after filing for divorce in May (16), Amber obtained a domestic violence restraining order against him, which was rescinded as part of the terms of the couple's separation agreement.

The actress is currently filming the DC Comics blockbuster Justice League in London, alongside Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot.
