Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Amber Heard filed for a divorce from her husband of more than a year, Johnny Depp, on May 22 just two days after his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, passed away after battling illness for a long time.
The two have been married for over a year and the 30-year-old was said to be the one who officially ended their marriage. She has cited irreconcilable differences in the documents for the divorce from the 52-year-old “Alice Through The Looking Glass” actor.
Heard is asking for spousal support according to the reports. The two also did not have a prenuptial agreement.
Depp did not seem too pre-occupied with the divorce as he went touring with his band Hollywood Vampires as well as promoted his new Walt Disney flick.
When asked at one of the promotional events for the film if he and Heard are planning to have a baby, he said, "Well it is the 21st century, and there are all kinds of strange digital…I don't know. I think at this point babies are still made the same way—with the stork and all that, so we'll just wait for the stork." He and Heard have reportedly spent some time apart for the past months as she is also busy shooting a new film.
Heard and Depp got married in February 2015, which was more than a year after engagement reports about the two broke. They married in a civil ceremony at the home of Depp in front of their family members. They celebrated their wedding at the island of Depp in the Bahamas.
In a December interview of Heard for Marie Claire, she said that being a stepmother to the two children of Depp, 16-year-old Lily Rose and 13-year-old Jack, has been an honor for her and the greatest gift she has ever received in her life.
The divorce news comes after they had to publicly apologized to Australia after smuggling their two dogs, Boo and Pistol into the county without declaring them. They released a PSA video last April talking about the fragile ecosystem of Australia.
The two are yet to comment on the validity of the reports.
