A judge has granted Amber Heard a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp.
Heard filed a domestic violence restraining order against Depp on Friday, arriving at court in Los Angeles with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, “with photos showing various bruises … she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage,” according to TMZ.
Heard said in a sworn declaration that Depp threw her cellphone at her during a fight Saturday, striking her cheek and eye, reports the Associated Press.
She also wrote that the actor pulled her hair, screamed at her and repeatedly hit her and violently grabbed her face.
She said the actor was high and drunk when the incident occurred.
Heard submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order Friday. The actress filed for divorce on Monday after 15 months of marriage.
Early Friday afternoon, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor ordered Depp to stay 100 yards away from Heard until a hearing is conducted on June 17. The judge also ruled that Depp shouldn’t try to contact Heard. Depp is currently in Portugal for a performance with his band Hollywood Vampires.
In Heard’s divorce filing she sought spousal support, and two days later, Depp’s legal team responded with a ‘no,’ asking the judge to deny her request. Depp also requested that Heard pay her own attorney fees, according to court documents cited by The Associated Press.
“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,” a rep for the actor told People in a statement on Thursday.
Depp’s lawyer is Laura Wasser, an A-list divorce lawyer-to-the-stars (such as Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom) who is known to be a tough negotiator. Heard’s lawyer, Spector, is listed as a family-law specialist in Los Angeles. Both actors cited irreconcilable differences for the breakup.
Depp, 52, and Heard, 30, married in February 2015 in an intimate beach ceremony on Depp’s private island in the Bahamas, one year after revealing they were engaged. They have no children together.
The former couple met on the set of the film The Rum Diary in 2009. At the time, Depp was still with his partner of 14 years and mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis, and he later stated that his relationship with Heard did not begin until after he and Paradis separated in 2012.
