In most recent divorce petition, Amber Heard drops abuse allegations against Johnny Depp

Thirty-year-old actress Amber Heard dropped allegations of domestic abuse from her divorce petition from her husband, 53-year-old actor and producer Johnny Depp last Tuesday, August 16.

In a joint statement, Heard and Depp said, “Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love. Neither party has made false accusations for financial gain. There was never any intent of physical or emotional harm.”

Heard filed a divorce petition from Depp, only 15 months after they got married, on grounds of irreconcilable differences. She then filed a temporary restraining order against Depp, accusing him of “excessive emotional, verbal, and physical abuse” throughout the course of their marriage.

In her new divorce petition, Heard is seeking $400 million in spousal support.

Depp reached worldwide renown for his fantasy swashbuckler film series, Pirates of the Caribbean. He and Heard met on the set of his 2011 film, The Rum Diary.
