More details on Amber's domestic violence claims.

Woah.

Amber Heard's domestic violence claims against Johnny Depp sound super serious. On Friday, the Friday Night Lights alum went to court to request a domestic violence restraining order against her estranged husband, only days after she filed for divorce.

The Danish Girl actress says that during the attack over the weekend, the eccentric actor was smashing a bunch of things in their apartment.

She also added that she was on the phone with a friend at the time, and told her pal to call the cops when the 52-year-old snatched the phone from her hand.

Apparently, the friend called the police, who arrived at Johnny and Amber's home. But by the time the authorities made it to the scene,

Don't mess with the Kardashians!

The doc in question, Dr. Gary Eldridge, has been touting the "Kardashian facelift" on his site for months now. The doc also went as far to put in an application to trademark the term.

Here's the problem — Kris Jenner and her gang say they have ownership of all branding related to cosmetics and anything similar. The momager is convinced that Eldridge is trying to capitalize on the clan's fame which is a big NO NO.

As for Gary's defense, he claims he simply named the facelift after his dog Kardashian.

Either way, the surgeon has wiped the "Kardashian facelift" from his website in addition to withdrawing his trademark app. Let's just say Eldridge has learned his lesson.

So, do YOU believe the doc's defense?

Dramaaa!

On Thursday, Gawker Media founder Nick Denton took to his site to SLAM his newly revealed nemesis, who is the tech billionaire Peter Thiel, for bankrolling lawsuits against the digital news operation. Oh snap!

As you may know, this beef all started when Thiel gave an interview to the New York Times and accused the media site of outing him as gay and causing pain to several of his dear friends. Obviously, Denton was not thrilled about this — especially since this bit of legal drama comes not long after Hulk Hogan's major victory over Gawker.

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineJohnny DeppAmber HeardBreakups

What drove them to divorce?!

We're pretty sure this star-studded split is going to have people picking sides.

On Monday, Amber Heard added insult to injury when she filed for divorce from Johnny Depp only days after his mother passed away.

Since word got out, there's been a lot of back-and-forth about whether or not the blonde beauty was actually hated by the acclaimed actor's family.

But insiders have exclaimed that the celebs' marriage showed signs of trouble from the start, which is probably why the 52-year-old wants to get this divorce over with ASAP.

Amber Heard Could Walk Away With HOW MUCH From Johnny Depp?!

| Filed under: Legal MattersLove LineJohnny DeppAmber HeardBreakups

Let the games begin…

As we reported, Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp three days after the death of his mother. The actress is seeking spousal support, and is asking the 50-year-old actor to pay her legal fees.

On the flip side, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star shot back and has asked the judge to deny the 30-year-old monetary benefits.

What makes this case tricky is that the couple did NOT sign a prenup before they got married 15 months ago.

So what's up for grabs?! A LOT, considering the fact that Depp has DEEP pockets!

In 2015, the hunk brought in $30 million and is estimated to be worth $400 million overall. In the past year, he shot Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell and Alice Through the Looking Glass, in addition to becoming the face of men's fragrance Dior Sauvage.

While California is a 50-50 state — where couples split the assets acquired during the time of their marriage — this isn't a steadfast rule.

Several factors go into the amount of money Heard can walk away with: the duration of the marriage, each spouse's earning potential, the lifestyle of the lesser-earning spouse, the effect of marriage on her professional life, and if she experienced any mental or physical harm during their nuptials.

And let's not forget the fact that Amber is a successful actress herself, with roles in The Justice League Part One and Aquaman.

We just hope these two can settle their differences peacefully!
