Amber Heard and Johnny Depp to divorce

Associated Press Associated Press 25/05/2016

Johnny Depp's wife has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences after 15 months of marriage.

Amber Depp, an actress known as Amber Heard, filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court and is seeking spousal support from the Oscar-nominated actor.

Heard listed their date of separation as Sunday. The pair has no children together.

Depp and Heard met while co-starring in the 2011 film The Rum Diary.

The actors have been embroiled in a dispute with Australia's deputy prime minister, who last year threatened to euthanize their dogs, Boo and Pistol, after they were illegally smuggled into the country.

Heard pleaded guilty last month to falsifying documents to conceal the pets when she arrived by private jet to join her husband on the set of the fifth movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean series.

The pair videotaped an apology as part of a deal that allowed Heard to avoid a conviction. But the actors have been derided because of their wooden deliveries in the film.

Depp has one previous marriage and was in a long relationship with French actress and model Vanessa Paradis before he began dating Heard.

The divorce was first reported on Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
