A Los Angeles judge awarded Amber Heard a temporary restraining order against Johnny Depp on Friday, after she claimed she was a recurred victim of domestic violence.
The 30 -year-old actress filed for divorce from Depp on Monday and TMZ was the first to report that she demonstrated up to court with her lawyer on Friday , armed with photos she claims demonstrate bruises that the 52 -year-old actor dedicated her during the course of their relationship.
Requests for commentary made by The Huffington Post to Heard’s rep and lawyer were not immediately returned. Request for comment made to Depp’s rep was also not immediately returned.
On Thursday, Depp’s rep dedicated a statementto Us Weekly considering his split from Heard, expressing that he did not want to drag out the divorce:
“Given the brevity of this wedding and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, rumor, misinformation and lies about his personal life, ” Depp’s rep told.“Hopefully the dissolution of this short wedding will be resolved quickly.”
