Amber Heard accuses Johnny Depp of domestic abuse amidst divorce proceedings
Hollywood actor Johnny Depp, known for his leading roles in films like Edward Scissorhands, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Sweeney Todd, and others, is coming under fire for domestic abuse. On May 21, Depp’s wife, Amber Heard, filed for a temporary restraining order in light of physical violence that resulted in her injury.
In the ongoing drama of the divorce between actor Johnny Depp, 53, and actress Amber Heard, 30, accusations of further domestic violence have surfaced. Heard claims that, in addition to the incident on May 21, Depp was verbally and physically abusive throughout their three-year relationship. She refuses to give a deposition under oath or produce documents that might support her allegations. Questions have arisen concerning the validity of her accusation, considering that the actress filed for divorce three days after filing for a restraining order. Depp’s team has accused Heard of attempting to use abuse charges in order to gain a larger settlement in the divorce.
