Judge orders Johnny Depp to stay away from estranged wife Amber Heard
LOS ANGELES — A judge has ordered Johnny Depp to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife, actress Amber Heard.
Heard said in a sworn declaration that Depp threw her cellphone at her during a fight Saturday, striking her cheek and eye. She submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order Friday.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor also ruled that Depp shouldn’t try to contact Heard.
She filed for divorce Monday, citing irreconcilable differences and saying the pair separated the day before. She is seeking spousal support from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, but Depp’s response filed Wednesday asked a judge to deny the request.
Depp’s attorney, Laura Wasser, declined to comment. Depp is in Portugal for a performance with his band Hollywood Vampires.
