Amber Heard has recently divorced Johnny Depp and, according to News Australia, she has also retracted her request for spousal support from her estranged husband.
Amber Heard’s motives have been misinterpreted, she believes. As was stated in court documents, Heard wants to make it clear that her divorce was not about money. Amber Heard claims that her initial request for $50,000 per month is being used against her to distract and divert the public away from the real issue behind the divorce from Johnny Depp: domestic violence. She feels that false and negative media depictions have led her attempts to attain a Domestic Violence Restraining Order to seem as if it were financially motivated, which ultimately led her to decide to withdraw the request for spousal support. Heard initially asked for a monetary figure, as she thought it was simply standard procedure in a divorce case.

The divorce and the public backlash it has created is taking a toll on Amber Heard, which was plainly evident when she was spotted heading for church. According to the Daily Mail, Amber Heard was spotted heading to a church in Los Angeles and then being comforted by a friend after becoming emotional.
Amber Heard was in the comfort of her friend, Amanda de Cadenet, and she appeared to dress down during her trip to the church, possibly in order to keep a low profile during her visit. The Zombieland actress has appeared to have lost a noticeable amount of weight from her already slender frame since the divorce. Looking to overcome her pain, she was seen becoming emotional and embracing her friend after leaving the church.
Amber Heard wore a black long-sleeved shirt with the sleeves rolled up, which she tucked into her jeans that showed her slim figure. Amber tried to keep herself composed as she arrived at the church with a cup of coffee in one hand and a phone in the other, yet she looked noticeably agitated as she left the church.

Fortunately for Amber, her friend was there to give her the comfort she needed. As she left, Amber could no longer contain herself, as she put her hair up in a bun while she appeared to cry on the shoulder of her friend. Heard looked disheartened as she left, walking with her head down and her puffy face hidden behind her sunglasses.
While Heard has been taking the divorce hard, her former husband has been reported to be laying low in his private island in the Bahamas. The rumors state that Depp, who has been accused of physically and verbally abusing his estranged wife, has no plans of returning to Los Angeles and was most recently visited by his 17-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose.

In the aftermath of the divorce, Johnny Depp has reportedly altered a tattoo bearing the name of Amber Heard. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Johnny Depp has been spotted onstage with a tattoo of an altered version of Amber Heard’s nickname.
He previously had the word “SLIM” tattooed across the knuckles of his right hand. The word is reported to be a nickname that had been given to Amber Heard. Pictures of Depp performing with his band in Pennsylvania, where he was on tour with his band Hollywood Vampires, show that the “L” and the “I” of the tattoo have been redrawn as a “C” and “U” which changed the “SLIM” tattoo into “SCUM.”

The origin of the nickname given to Heard had never been fully confirmed by either Amber Heard or her former spouse, yet fans of the couple have suggested that Heard earned the nickname as a reference to 1940s Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall, who played “Slim” against Humphrey Bogart’s “Steve,” who Depp said Heard reminded him of.
