Amber Heard is reportedly in court today attempting to get a restraining order against her estranged husband, Johnny Depp, days after filing for divorce.
According to TMZ, the 30-year-old actress “just showed up in court with a bruise on her face claiming Johnny Depp physically assaulted her and is the victim of repeated domestic violence.”
Accompanied by her lawyer Samantha Spector, Heard came with photos showing various bruises, bruises “she claims Depp inflicted various times during their marriage.”
The photo obtained by TMZ shows her with a huge bruise around her eye, which she says Depp inflicted on her on Saturday night by smashing his iPhone on her face. The photo was allegedly taken after she was struck.
According to TMZ, “Heard claims after he allegedly hit her he offered her money to stay quiet, but instead she filed for divorce first thing Monday morning.”
She asked for, and was granted, a temporary restraining order due to there being immediate threat of harm. TMZ notes that Depp has been out of town since Wednesday promoting his new movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass, and that Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, appeared in court on his behalf.
