Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were seen in a tight embrace at a charity gala in Los Angeles on Friday night. Putting split rumours to rest, the lovebirds heated things up with a passionate liplock as they arrived at the event.

Dressed in a form-fitting white dress the actress looked gorgeous alongside Depp. The duo, who has been engaged for a year now, reportedly couldn't put their hands off each other. They were even spotted dancing to the romantic tune of "The First Cut Is the Deepest," in the VIP area. They reportedly looked much in love and stayed with each other throughout the event.

Heard was invited to the event as the Spirit of Elysium fraternity wanted to honour her with an award for her fundraising efforts for the benefit of children and other people in need. She has been reportedly working on the behalf of the organisation for years now. "It didn't take long before I was jumping around the hospital in bunny ears, anything to make the kids laugh," the actress said after accepting the award according to E Online. She also spoke about her association with the Art of Elysium group and acknowledged their charitable efforts.

Meanwhile, Heard and Depp have been plagued by split rumours for a while. In December, it was reported that the two were having some issues. "They have extreme personalities and are both very intense people. Arguments are bound to arise," a source previously said to the E Online. It was also said that they were planning to put marriage plans at the back burner as Heard is "not ready to settle down."

The couple started dating in 2011 while shooting for the movie "The Rum Diary." They went public with their relationship after a year of dating and have been spotted together at various public events since then. Prior to getting involved with Amber, Depp was in a relationship with French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis. He was with her for 14 years. The actor also has two children with Paradis.
