Amber Heard is desperate to make it known that her restraining order against her allegedly abusive, estranged husband is her first priority in their divorce, and NOT spousal support! New court docs reveal that she just wants Johnny to stay away.
In the wake of Amber Heard‘s estranged husband, Johnny Depp, 52, allegedly broke his temporary restraining order and sending his people to the apartment they once shared, Amber, 30, has made it clear in court that she needs him to stay away. Amber is no longer looking for spousal support, which she filed for in her original divorce docs, but focusing on keeping the restraining order upheld. Click through for the details!
Amber filed a declaration for withdrawal of temporary spousal support, according to TMZ. Though Amber and Johnny have a court hearing on Friday, June 17, she wants money off the table because she feels that Johnny and his team have been twisting her request in the media.
Amber said in her declaration that she filed for the spousal support because she thought it was a standard proceeding in divorce cases. But she’s now giving up, at least temporarily, because she feels her request is being “used against me to distract and divert the public away from the very serious real issue of domestic violence.“
It’s sad that it’s come to this, but Amber wants to focus completely on ensuring that Johnny, who she’s accused of brutally abusing her throughout their 15-month marriage, is legally forced to stay away from her. Amber allegedly called 911 on June 13 because members of Johnny’s team stormed into their apartment, where Amber is staying, and “ransacked it.”
The terms of Amber’s temporary restraining order permit a “move out order,” which allows Johnny to take essentials from the home to get him through the week until their hearing on June 17. But Amber believed that the forceful manner in which his team came to the apartment, and the alleged large amount of stuff they took, was a violation of the order. While Johnny himself was not there (he’s in the Bahamas), it still scared her enough to call the cops. How terrible for Amber, who’s allegedly extremely frightened of Johnny.
Now keep in mind that Amber’s not giving up completely on getting her legal right to spousal support someday. She just wants her safety to be addressed first!
