Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, 15 months after the couple got married in Februrary 2015.
Court records filed on Monday show that Heard believes the couple have “irreconcilable differences”. ‘The Danish Girl’ star Heard is seeking spousal support from Depp. It’s believed Depp and Heard did not have a pre-nuptial agreement.
The pair met when they starred in the Bruce Robinson-directed film ‘The Rum Diaries’, and recently hit the headlines when the couple tried to illegally bring their dogs into Australia.
To avoid a conviction, the couple were forced to film an awkward-looking video apologising for their actions, after Australian deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to have the dogs put down unless Depp and Heard “buggered off back to America”.
News of the divorce comes a week after Depp’s mother Betty Sue Palmer died aged 81 on May 20 following a long illness.
They got legally married in Los Angeles in a private ceremony in February 2015, before having a public wedding with guests on a private island in the Bahamas days later.
Speaking about their relationship to Elle in June 2015, Heard said that “nothing much had changed” since the couple got married, adding: “I fall in love again and again.”
