Johnny Depp ordered to stay 100 yards away from Amber Heard
Johnny Depp has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife Amber Heard.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor made the ruling on Friday (05.27.16) and cautioned Johnny, 52, not to try to contact the actress after Amber, 30, alleged that she had been the victim of physical assault by her husband.
TMZ reports that Amber told the judge that she filed for divorce on Monday (05.23.16) because Johnny hit her with an iPhone two days before, leaving her with a bruised eye, which she showed a picture of in court.
She is said to have claimed that Johnny offered her money to keep quiet about the injury and also included pictures taken at other times she alleges he assaulted her.
Johnny is currently in Europe and his lawyer, Laura Wasser, who represented him in court on Friday, has yet to comment on Amber’s allegations or the judge’s ruling.
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star – who is estimated to be worth around $400 million – recently asked a judge to reject Amber’s claim for spousal support.
The pair are not thought to have put a pre-nuptial agreement in place before they wed in February 2015 in Los Angeles, followed by another ceremony in the Bahamas.
The former couple met on the set of 2011 film ‘The Rum Diary’.
Johnny previously divorced his first wife, make-up artist Lori Anne Allison, in 1985 after just two years of marriage and he split from French actress partner Vanessa Paradis – who he has daughter Lily-Rose, 16, and 13-year-old son Jack with – in 2012 after 14 years together.
Amber was in a three-year relationship with girlfriend Tasya van Ree until 2011.
