Let the games begin├óΓé¼┬ª
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!
