There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

The blonde beauty went to court to ask for — and ultimately receive — a restraining order against Johnny Depp, alleging that the eccentric actor would regularly beat her over the course of their 15-month marriage.
As more information about the Friday Night Lights alum's court documents is revealed, we're learning more about the actress' horrifying accusations.
In the legal papers, the gorgeous gal claims her estranged husband "has a short fuse" and she even feared for his life when he went on his reported rampages, saying:
"His temper is exceptionally scary for me as it has proven many times to be physically dangerous and/or life-threatening to me."
The star says Saturday's supposed incident wasn't an isolated one, explaining that there were several instances of the A-lister's alleged abuse.
She even mentioned one specific situation last year was particularly scary, adding:
"In particular there was one severe incident in December 2015 where I truly feared that my life was in danger."
However, she didn't provide any details about what exactly went down.
And as we previously reported, Miz Heard claims that she and the Alice Through The Looking Glass star got "into a bad argument" after her birthday in April.
In the court docs, she described the 52-year-old's reportedly violent behavior last month, recounting:
"Johnny then grabbed me by the shoulders and pushed me onto the bed, blocking the bedroom door. He then grabbed me by the hair and violently shoved me to the floor."
"Johnny ripped the cell phone from my hand and began screaming profanities and insults at iO [the friend]. I heard iO yell at me to get out of the house. Johnny then grabbed the cellphone, wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher and threw the cellphone at me striking my cheek and eye with great force."
She continued to say he "charged" at her and "taunted" her, adding:
"He then forcibly pulled back my hair as I attempted to stand up from the sofa. I then yelled 'Call 911' – hoping it would be heard by iO who was still on the phone."
Amber explained the violence continued:
"Johnny continued screaming at me, pulling my hair, striking me and violently grabbing my face."
Finally, the celeb said a neighboring friend came into the apartment, and Johnny ran out "smashing everything he could" once she arrived.
The neighbor even added that he "slapped my hands away and screamed foul obscenities at me."
