Amber Heard has filed for divorce from Johnny Depp, just three days after the actor’s mother died.
Depp, 52, and Heard, 30, met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and married in February 2015 at a private civil ceremony at their LA home. It was the first marriage for Heard and the second for Depp. The actor split from French actress Vanessa Paradis in 2012 after 14 years together and was previously married to Lori Anne Allison for two years until 1985. He also had a long-term relationship with Kate Moss. Depp has 2 children with Paradis – 16-year-old daughter Lily-Rose and 13-year-old son Jack.
It’s understood that Heard is asking for spousal support and that the couple had no prenuptial agreement. The actress and model filed her divorce petition on Monday citing ‘irreconcilable differences’.
It’s been a particularly difficult week for Depp as his beloved mother Betty Sue Palmer, 81 died on Friday, May 20 in Los Angeles after a long illness.
Depp was very close to his mum and the 52 year old actor even has a tattoo of her name, “Betty Sue,” on his left upper arm. In a 2013 interview with Rolling Stone, Depp spoke about his mother’s difficult upbringing.
“My mother was raised in a shack, in the wilds of Appalachia, where the toilet was an outhouse,” he said. “She used to say she did the same things that her mom did — and her mom certainly didn’t know any better. With my kids, they’re told 75 times a day that they’re loved. One thing I know is they feel loved and secure and happy and needed and necessary and a part of something.”
