Amber Heard filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for spousal support from husband, Johnny Depp. According to court docs obtained by ET, on Wednesday, Depp filed a response, asking the court to
“terminate the court’s ability to award support.”
Depp also wants the Heard to pay her own attorney fees –when she filed, Heard asked that Depp pay her costs too. Depp’s other responses include listing their separation dates as “To Be Determined.” Heard claimed it was May 22, the day before she filed for divorce –and, btw, two days after the death of Depp’s mother, Betty Sue Palmer. Cold.
Even if he doesn’t have to pay spousal support, the divorce could still cost Depp, BIG TIME as the couple married without a prenup. (Dumb.) Johnny is worth in the (VERY fancy) neighborhood of $400 million. He made $30 million last year alone!
In California, where they are divorcing, a judge simply divides the couple’s joint assets in half in the absence of a prenup.
UPDATE: Heard showed up showed up in court with her lawyer, Samantha Spector, armed with photos showing various bruises … she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage. TMZ obtained this pic … showing Amber with a bruise around her eye, which she says Depp inflicted Saturday night. According to TMZ,
Heard claims the pic was taken shortly after she was allegedly struck.
Heard claims after he allegedly hit her he offered her money to stay quiet, but instead she filed for divorce first thing Monday morning.
…she’s asking for a temporary restraining order claiming there’s an immediate threat of harm, but Depp has been out of town since Wednesday promoting his new movie. Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, appeared on his behalf.
