IT APPEARS actress Amber Heard will not be returning to Queensland for her court case today, despite facing charges for the illegal importatio­n of her and husband Johnny Depp’s dogs, Boo and Pistol. After being issued in July with a summons to appear in Southport Magistrate­s Court this morning, Heard has spent her weekend living the A-lister life at the Venice Film Festival. Just yesterday the 29year-old walked the red carpet with Depp for her film, The Danish Girl, with the two apparently unconcerne­d by the legal case against them.

It is understood that Heard’s lawyers will seek an adjournmen­t.

Heard has been accused of sneaking the pups into Queensland via a private jet, without declaring them to authoritie­s.

Depp was with her at the time, arriving Down Under to film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

She could face up to 10 years jail and a fine of $100,000.
