Johnny Depp‘s wife, Amber Heard has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences after 15 months of marriage. Amber Depp, filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court and is seeking spousal support from the Oscar-nominated actor. Heard listed their date of separation as Sunday.
It’s been a tough year for Depp, his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, died last Friday, May 20, in Los Angeles after a long illness. She was 81.
The couple has also been embroiled in a dispute with Australia’s deputy prime minister, who last year threatened to euthanize their dogs, Boo and Pistol, after they were illegally smuggled into the country.
Heard pleaded guilty last month to falsifying documents to conceal the pets when she arrived by private jet to join her husband on the set of the fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
They met while co-starring in the 2011 film The Rum Diary and Depp’s latest film, Alice Through the Looking Glass, is due to be released on Friday. Depp has one previous marriage and was in a long relationship with French actress and model Vanessa Paradis before he began dating Heard.
I blame Australia.
