Amber Heard Files For Divorce From Johnny Depp

After just over a year of marriage, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are headed for divorce.


Johnny Depp has asked the court to reject  Amber Heard's request for spousal support. 

He has enlisted lawyer, Laura Wasser, who PEOPLE calls "one of the most high-powered celebrity divorce attorneys in Hollywood."

Johnny also released a statement via a representative, saying: 

"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."

Read the full story:

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are headed for a divorce after 15 months of marriage.

TMZ reports the 30-year-old actress filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences". 

Amber is reportedly seeking spousal support from Johnny, 52, meaning she may be entitled to half of what Johnny has earned in the past 15 months while working on Pirates of the Caribbean and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

TMZ reports no prenuptial agreement was signed between the two. 

The pair met while filming 'The Rum Diaries' in 2011, when Johnny was still in a relationship with  French actress and model Vanessa Paradis.

He and Vanessa split in 2012, and Johnny married Amber in February 2015.

Amber reportedly filed for divorce on Monday, only three days after Johnny's mother passed away.

Johnny hasn't given any indication of the split despite doing several interviews this week while promoting his new movie Alice Through the Looking Glass, which is released in the US later this week.

The pair recently made headlines when they travelled to Australia without declaring their dogs Pistol and Boo, before making a public apology and highlighting the importance of Australian biosecurity laws.

We guess the only question now is, who gets Pistol and who gets Boo?
