Johnny Depp, Amber Heard file for divorce – reports
MANILA, Philippines – Actor Johnny Depp and wife Amber Heard are divorcing after 15 months of marriage, reports from US entertainment outlets say.
According to a report from People magazine, Amber, 30, filed for divorce on Monday, May 23, "citing irreconcilable differences." Amber is also seeking "spousal support" from Johnny according to the magazine, which has obtained documents.
The divorce was filed after Johnny's mother died last week.
Johnny and Amber married last year at the former's home in West Hollywood. The pair met on the set of The Rum Diary (2011), and got engaged in 2014.
The two came out as a couple in 2012 after Johnny had split from longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children.
The couple became controversial last year after allegedly smuggling their pet dogs, Pistol and Boo, into Australia, which is in violation of the country's quarantine laws. Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce threatened to have their pets put down unless they "buggered off back to the United States."
They have since apologized, releasing a video last April, which was played when they attended a hearing in Australia regarding the matter. – with reports from Agence France-Presse/Rappler.com
