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 actress is claiming that during an alleged incident on Saturday, the Alice Through The Looking Glass star bruised her when he smashed an iPhone into her face.
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, the Pirates of the Caribbean star had left.
Sources are also saying that the cops told Miz Heard that they would track her former flame down and book him if she offered up a statement.
However, Amber reportedly refused.
Officials said that the blonde could call them if she decided to make a formal statement after all, but TMZ is saying she hasn’t gone back to the police.
And even though the gorgeous gal filed the restraining order while her ex is out of town, sources tell E! News that the specific timing isn’t what’s important in this serious situation:
“This is not about right now. It’s an ongoing thing that she needs protection from.”
The insider added:
“She did what she had to do to protect herself. It wasn’t an easy decision, but this is the truth. It was very hard for her.”
The 30-year-old is also saying she has video from one of the times he supposedly hit her.
