What a week it’s been for Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. On Monday, Heard filed for divorce just days after Depp’s mother passed away. Then, allegations of spousal abuse occurred when Heard showed up to court with a bruise on her face and claimed that Depp physically assaulted her. According t0 TMZ, Depp offered his wife of 15 months ‘hush money’, but instead Heard filed for divorce and asked for a restraining order. The temporary restraining order was granted on Friday and the Pirates of the Caribbean star has to stay 100 yards away from Heard. The next hearing will be on June, 17.

Variety had details of the restraining order which Heard stated,“I am extremely afraid of Johnny and for my safety.” The incident in question happened last weekend when Depp allegedly threw an iPhone at his wife causing a bruise on her face is apparently not an isolated event. Heard stated to the court that Depp has a massive drug and alcohol problem:

“Depending on his interaction with alcohol and drugs. Johnny has a long-held and widely-acknowledged public and private history of drug and alcohol abuse. He has a short fuse. He is often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary.”
