Amber Heard was successful — she just obtained a temporary restraining order against estranged husband Johnny Depp, whom she accused of assaulting her on May 21. Here’s what we know.
Amber Heard, 30, has been granted a temporary restraining order against her ex Johnny Depp, 52, today, May 27, after claiming that he has physically abused her on multiple occasions. Read on to see what the restraining order entails.
A judge in court today has given Amber Heard the restraining order she wants, TMZ reports. The temporary restraining order will require Johnny to stay at least 100 yards away from Amber until there is a hearing next month. (Johnny is currently in Europe promoting his new movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass.)
Furthermore, Amber has been given the right to live in the family home, though the judge has rejected other requests that Amber made, including that Johnny be kept away from one of their dogs. TMZ reports that the judge said there was “an insufficient showing to protect the pet dog”, and it is unclear as to why the second dog wasn’t referenced.
TMZ adds that the judge rejected Amber’s request for spousal support and attorney’s fees from Johnny, and that her request for possession of their Range Rover vehicle was denied. Amber also asked that Johnny be forced to enroll in an anger management program, but this, too, was denied.
People reports that Johnny knew that Amber was planning to file the restraining order, and that he offered her money to keep her from doing it.
As we previously told you, Amber accused Johnny of domestic abuse today in court when she filed the restraining order, citing an alleged attack on May 21 when he apparently smashed an iPhone into her face. When police came on the scene, Johnny had reportedly already fled, and Amber refused to file a statement for the report. “Prior incidents were worse,” a source tells People. So horrifying.
