According to court records obtained by CNN, Heard filed for divorce last Sunday citing irreconcilable differences. This morning, TMZ reports, she showed up for a court hearing with a facial bruise allegedly made by Depp, who is currently on the road promoting a movie and did not attend the hearing.
The pair reportedly did not have a prenuptial agreement and Heard is seeking spousal support.
A spokesperson for Depp says: “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.”
Amber claims during the alleged attack, Johnny shattered various objects in the apartment. She says she was on the phone with a friend during the fight, and when Johnny grabbed her phone she screamed to her friend, “Call the cops!” The friend called 911 and cops came to the residence.
Amber says when cops arrived Johnny had already fled, so they took a report.
We’re told cops told Amber they would find Johnny and arrest him if she gave a statement about the alleged violence, but she refused. Officers told her if she changed her mind she could call them.
The report to which TMZ refers appears to be an LAPD business card with handwritten notes, dated 5/21/16 at 9:16 p.m.: “RADIO CALL OF DISPUTE. REFUSED REPORT. ADV’D CAN CALL @ LATER TIME IF CHANGES MIND.”
The site reports Heard also claims to have video of another assault.
