Amber Heard's Request For A Restraining Order Against Johnny Depp Is Reportedly Granted By Judge
On Friday afternoon, it was reported that Amber Heard filed a request for a restraining order against Johnny Depp and claimed that he physically abused her. Depp has not yet responded to this claim. Now, a judge has reportedly granted Heard's request, according to both USA Today and BBC News. The BBC also reported that Depp has been ordered to not try to contact his soon-to-be ex-wife. Bustle has reached out to reps for Heard and Depp for comment, but has not received a response.
People shared video of Heard leaving the Los Angeles court building after filing her restraining order. A source who spoke with People claimed that the Magic Mike XXL actor filed the order in response to an alleged incident that occurred on Saturday, which resulted in the police being called to Depp's L.A. apartment. "This was only the latest incident," the source claimed to the publication. Meanwhile, TMZ claimed Friday that according to the LAPD, Heard had no evidence of injuries on Saturday when the police were called.
Earlier in the day on Friday, both People and TMZ shared a photo of Heard's face, showing what appears to be a bruise on the actor's right eye. People reported that Heard submitted the photo to the court as evidence.
While Depp has not commented on the reported claims from Heard or the restraining order, he did release a statement via his rep to People on Thursday in regards to other rumors surrounding his divorce from Heard:
Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly.
