Amber Heard went to court today with a big bruise on the right side of her face. The actress is seeking a restraining order against husband Johnny Depp and says that he has been violent towards her many times.
Heard’s lawyer Samantha Spector brought photos showing various injuries that allegedly occurred during multiple incidents of domestic violence. TMZ obtained a photo of the actress’ bruised face which she claims was caused on Saturday night after Depp hit her with an iPhone. Heard says that night she was on the phone with a friend while Depp smashed objects in their home. When he grabbed her phone she says she yelled at her friend to call 911 and that’s when the police were notified. The 30-year-old claims Depp left the home before the police arrived and that he offered her hush money. Instead she filed for divorce.
Heard also claims to have video evidence of one of the domestic violence incidents.
“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,” a statement reads.
“Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”
The couple got married in February of 2015.
The evidence is certainly pointing in Heard’s direction and we hope she has a speedy and safe recovery.
UPDATE: The judge granted Heard a temporary restraining order until a hearing next month. The judge also ruled that she can live in the family home. However, she cannot keep their shared Range Rover and the judge rejected an order to keep Depp away from their pet dog.
