LOS ANGELES (Web Desk) – Film star Johnny Depp and his actress wife Amber Heard are going to divorce, US court documents have revealed.

Ms Heard, 30, filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court citing “irreconcilable differences”. They married 15 months ago and have no children.

According to legal documents, Ms Heard said they separated on May 22, meaning the Rum Diary co-stars broke up just days after the death of Depp’s mother, Betty Sue Palmer, TMZ said.

Ms Heard is seeking spousal support from 50-year-old actor husband. They had no pre-nuptial agreement. However, TMZ reported that Depp has asked a judge to reject Heard’s claim for spousal support.


The actress last month escaped conviction for illegally smuggling her two Yorkshire Terriers into Australia. She and Depp were subsequently seen in a widely mocked, viral video apologizing for not declaring their pets when they entered the country.

Depp is currently promoting his latest fantasy movie Alice Through the Looking Glass, due to be released on Friday.
