Earlier this week, Amber Heard filed for divorce from one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, Johnny Depp. The two were married for just 15 months.
Heard arrived to court with a bruise on her face which she claims Depp caused by smashing his iPhone in her face on Saturday, May 21, according to TMZ. She also brought photos of other bruises sustained over the course of their marriage.
Heard claims the couple got into an argument and Depp broke several objects in their apartment. She was on the phone at the time and when he tried to take the phone away from her, she told her friend to call 911. When police arrived on the scene, Depp was gone and Heard refused to file a report.
Heard asked the court for spousal support, but the judge denied her request for spousal support and attorney’s fees. However, Heard is allowed to live in the family home, but cannot have possession to their Range Rover.
According to TMZ, Heard and Depp didn’t sign a pre-nuptial agreement.
Depp’s net worth is estimated at $400 million, and Forbes Magazine estimates he made $30 million last year.
A judge has granted Heard’s request for a restraining order against Depp. He must stay 100 feet away from Heard.
Heard wrote in the court documents obtained by ABC News:
“I live in fear that Johnny will return to [our home] unannounced to terrorize me, physically and emotionally. There also have been several prior incidents of domestic violence with Johnny, in particular there was one severe incident in December 2015 when I truly feared that my life was in danger.”
She also accused Depp of having a substance abuse problem and said he was physically, verbally and emotionally abusive throughout their relationship, which began when they started dating in 2012 after meeting on the set of 2011’s The Rum Diary.
