It looks like Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s divorce is going to be full of drama. The actress is seeking spousal support from her ex, and since they have no prenup, his massive fortune could be in major jeopardy!
The 52-year-old is reportedly worth $400 million, and when Amber filed divorce papers on May 23, she asked for spousal support, according to TMZ. A battle has already somewhat begun, too, as Johnny filed response papers rejecting her request. Yikes!
Shockingly, Amber filed for divorce just two days after the tragic death of her husband’s mother. The duo just got married — in an extremely private ceremony on his island — back in Feb. 2015, but things have reportedly been tense for a while between them.
We recently saw the couple together publicly when they filmed an apology video for smuggling their dogs into Australia. Needless to say, the clip was totally awkward and insincere! So far, there’s been no word on what the ex-lovers plan to do with the pooches they share — could that be yet another legal war?!
Johnny is currently promoting his new movie Alice Through The Looking Glass, but the 30-year-old has noticeably been missing from all recent press events. “I try not to react to the horrible misrepresentation of our lives, but it’s strange and hard,” Amber admitted to Marie Claire in November.
She also gushed over her relationship with Johnny’s kids, Lily-Rose Depp and Jack John Christopher Depp. “[It is] an honor and the greatest, most surprising gift I have ever received in my life,” she told the mag. “I feel new flavors that I didn’t know existed. New colors that I didn’t know existed have been added to my life. I’m so happy.” Hopefully they’re still able to keep a close relationship despite the split!
Do you think Johnny should have to pay Amber spousal support, HollywoodLifers?
