The beginnings of a divorce battle? Johnny Depp has asked the judge to reject Amber Heard’s request for spousal support, according to TMZ. The Alice Through the Looking Glass actor reportedly filed the response through his high-profile celeb divorce attorney, Laura Wasser.
Heard, 30, filed for divorce from the 52-year-old actor on Monday, May 23, in the Los Angeles Superior Court, after 15 months of marriage. She cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her petition.
The very private couple have not been spotted together in recent weeks. The Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales actor was supposed to attend the Met Gala with Heard earlier this month, but he canceled last minute and she walked the red carpet solo.
The couple, who have a 22-year age difference, met in 2011 on the set of The Rum Diary. They exchanged vows at two ceremonies in February 2015 — the first at their home in West Hollywood and again on Depp’s private Bahamian island. Depp and Heard didn’t have any children together, but they shared two dogs, Pistol and Boo, who became the center of a scandal after the stars smuggled them into Australia last year.
Depp was previously in a long-term relationship with Vanessa Paradis for 14 years, but the pair never married and eventually split in June 2012. They share daughter Lily-Rose, 16, and son Jack, 14. Heard, who is openly bisexual, dated photographer Tasya van Ree prior to Depp.
