Amber Heard Files Domestic Abuse Restraining Order Against Johnny Depp, Releases Photo of Bruised Eye
Days after Heard's divorce order, she now alleges the actor is physically abusive.
Mere days after Amber Heard's request to divorce Johnny Depp, she has now released evidence that the actor physically abused her.
According to People, 30-year-old Heard has filed a domestic violence restraining order against Depp, 22 years her senior. The publication's unknown source alleges "this was not an isolated event," and that the disturbing picture below shows evidence of "only the latest incident."
Heard and Depp were married only 15 months when Heard filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences." Since news of the divorce order broke, the fate of Depp's considerable fortune has been in question as The Adderall Diaries actress has requested spousal support. No pre-nup was signed.
On Thursday, Depp's reps released a statement to People:
"Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."
This story is developing.
Update — 2:16 p.m.: According to Page Six, a Los Angeles judge granted Heard's request for a domestic abuse restraining order on Friday afternoon. The actress will be allowed to stay in their marital LA home, though Heard's request to retain temporary custody over their Range Rover and dogs has been denied. She also requested that Depp enter anger management classes and that he pay her $50,000 per month in legal fees until such time as the divorce process is completed — both of these stipulations were also denied.
