Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp after just 15 months of marriage amid claims his family hated her. The actress cited irreconcilable differences for the split and is seeking spousal support, triggering a battle over the star's $400million fortune. . She listed May 22 as the stars’ date of separation – just two days after the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star lost his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, following a long illness.
“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 representative for Depp said on Thursday. “Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.”
Depp and Heard tied the knot on the actor's private island in the Bahamas. He purchased a 45-acre private island in the Bahamas with six beaches for $3.6 million in 2004. He has called the tropical getaway "pure and beautiful," and the pair wed there in February 2015 after legally tying the knot at a private civil ceremony at their home in Los Angeles.
