1 minute read

Amber Heard has been granted a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp after she accused him of domestic violence.

Mary Hearn, spokesperson for Los Angeles Superior Court, confirmed to TIME that Judge Carl H. Moor granted Heard a temporary restraining order against Depp Friday after she accused him of domestic violence. The restraining order was denied for her dog.

Variety reports that Heard appeared in court Friday morning with a black eye, saying that Depp had assaulted her. She and her lawyer also submitted photos of other bruises as evidence for Heard’s accusation that Depp repeatedly assaulted her during their marriage.

On Thursday, Depp released a statement after the pair filed for divorce after 15 months of marriage.

“Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly,” Depp’s rep said in a statement.

Lawyers for Depp and Heard did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
