Amber Heard files for a domestic violence restraining order from Johnny Depp.
Just over 24 hours ago it was announced that Amber Heard filed for divorce from her husband, Johnny Depp, after just 15 months of marriage, and rumors began swirling of the couples relationship troubles, but no one expected this. Amber Heard has officially filed a domestic violence restraining order against Johnny Depp, with sources close to the actress saying that his violence against her is not an isolated event, but has been ongoing. What's more is Amber has a photo to prove her shocking allegations against her husband, which she submitted with the restraining order request, and the photo is more than enough to prove that she is in the right to want Johnny Depp to stay away from her.
The photo, below, shows Amber revealing a black eye and tiny red scratches on her upper right cheek. Her right temple also appears to be bruised and reddened. There is no denying Amber was injured, and it may be hard to believe for fans of the beloved actor that he is capable of such a thing, but the photo isn't lying.
A source close to the actress told People that the photo is only from the latest of many incidents between Johnny and Amber, but neither's reps have officially commented on the domestic violence claims or restraining order. A domestic violence restraining order protects the concerned party from abuse or threat of abuse from someone close to them, like family or a spouse.
While Johnny hasn't commented on the abuse allegations, he did break his silence yesterday about the split through his rep, 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."
Wow. This is just crazy, and saddening. If these allegations against Johnny are accurate, which it seems they are, then this whole thing will change his career. How can we support someone who beats up women? Hopefully this situation will force him to get some help. Truthfully, I am in shock about the situation, but on the bright side it seems Amber Heard is taking the right steps to protect herself in such an awful situation. Still, isn't this whole thing just nuts?
