This is getting messy! Amber Heard’s potential divorce settlement with Johnny Depp will likely not be effected by her latest abuse claims says a California Divorce attorney EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. Keep reading for the latest legal news on this major Hollywood split!
Breaking up is so hard to do. Model Amber Heard, 30, has filed a restraining order against Johnny Depp, 52, the same week she filed for divorce from the actor. Despite pictures which show Amber with a bruised face, a California divorce attorney explains EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com that the actress’ abuse claims will have little effect on her divorce from the Alice Through The Looking Glass star. Keep reading to learn how this will all shake out.
“The physical abuse and restraining order will not do any change to Amber’s settlement,” says California divorce attorney David Pisarra. But if the alleged abuse will not effect the divorce settlement, what other compensation may Amber seek for the abuse?
“Amber could do a civil suit for physical harm but rarely done,” says David whose book, ‘What About Wally,’ explains how Johnny & Amber may coparent their infamous puppies. “Amber could come after Johnny for damages, emotional, physical, like a regular personal injury battery lawsuit.” This is really terrible. Both Amber and Johnny seem like such nice people it is too bad that things are not working out for the beautiful couple.
According to a source who spoke with People, this is not an isolated incident. Even more disturbing are Amber’s claims in her restraining order request that Johnny used an iPhone as a weapon bruising her face. Yikes, this is so not cool if it turns out to be true.
David goes on to explain, “However, Amber’s physical damages do not seem big enough to warrant a large payout, she may not be working much. The actress may not have much in lost wages and will not have permanent damage from a slap in the face type of bruise like the pictures show.” Wow, this is all really wild.
