The drama between actor Johnny Depp and his soon-to-be ex-wife Amber Heard has been ramped up yet again. Heard has reportedly shown up in court with a bruise on her face, alleging that Depp hit her and demanding a restraining order against the actor.
Amber Heard accuses Johnny Depp of assault
According to tabloid website TMZ, Heard appeared in court on Friday and alleged that Johnny Depp physically assaulted her on more than on occasion. She alleges that she has repeatedly been a victim of domestic violence and went to court with pictures showing a number of bruises that she claims the Pirates of the Caribbean star inflicted upon her throughout their one-year marriage.
Heard also reportedly wants a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp and claims that there is an immediate threat from him, but TMZ reports that the actor has been out of town since Wednesday to promote his new movie. His actor Laura Wasser appeared in court on his behalf.
Johnny Depp, Amber Heard’s marriage in trouble quickly
Various media outlets reported earlier today that the couple’s marriage was already in trouble after only three months. According to the Daily Mail, tension arose between them because of Heard’s love for Hollywood glamor and a lesbian activist and friend Heard spent a lot of time with.
She filed for divorce on Monday, only three days after his mother died after lying ill for a long time. Court documents reportedly state that Heard gave the date of separation as May 22, the day before she filed for divorce, but Depp’s response requested that the date be changed to “to be determined.” He also requested that the court deny the spousal support Heard seek and asked that some assets be separated.
The Daily Mail reports that although Amber Heard and Johnny Depp have been struggling since May 2015, they decided to give the marriage a year to see if they could patch things up.
