... but actress says she lives in fear
Johnny Depp’s lawyer has accused Amber Heard of alleging abuse in order to secure a financial settlement.
Johnny has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from his estranged wife Amber, 30, after she filed for a restraining order amid allegations the actor physically abused her.
But his lawyer insisted the abuse claims are a bid by Amber to get money from the Golden Globe winner.
Laura Wasser, who represents Johnny, 52, said in court documents: “Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”
Amber asked for spousal support after filing for divorce but the Pirates of the Caribbean star - estimated to be worth about $400 million - is said to have rejected the claim and asked the judge not to allow it.
The pair are not thought to have put a prenuptial agreement in place before they wed in February 2015.
Amber claims she is living in fear of Johnny and said in a written declaration to the court that she had “endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse” during their 15-month marriage.
Variety reported that Amber wrote: “During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me. I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him.
“I live in fear that Johnny will return to (our house) unannounced to terrorise me, physically and emotionally.”
