Johnny Depp: Amber Heard Inventing Domestic Violence Charges to Get Millions in Divorce
A representative for Johnny Depp claims that Amber Heard fabricated allegations of domestic violence in order to win a significant financial settlement in their upcoming divorce.
Heard, 30, appeared in a California court on Friday to file for a restraining order against Depp and submitted photos of her bruised face as evidence. The Rum Diary actress alleged Depp repeatedly verbally and physically assaulted her over the course of their 15-month marriage, leaving her “truly fearing for her life.”
Heard filed for divorce from the Pirates of the Caribbean star, 52, on Monday.
But in statement to the Sun, Laura Wasser, an attorney representing Depp, said that the actress and model fabricated claims of domestic violence in order to gain the upper hand in the couple’s upcoming divorce proceedings.
“Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse,” Wasser told the UK newspaper. “Amber is a successful model and actress who earns her own income and is capable of supporting herself.”
