The divorce of Amber Heard and Johnny Depp may quickly become the celebrity break-up of the year, as each side raises the stakes step by step in an all out courtroom war, one which has already started to wage its first wars in the media.
On the heels of the news that Johnny Depp's mother had passed away, Amber Heard filed for divorce and in such a way that news of the filing was leaked to the media almost immediately. Heard followed this up with a request for a restraining order and allegations that Depp had assaulted her with a cell phone. Amber claims Johnny has had a long history of abusing her in their 15 month marriage and Johnny has remained silent, until now.
