Amber Heard, who cited irreconcilable differences when she filed for divorce from Depp earlier this week, appeared in a Los Angeles court room Friday to request a restraining order against her husband of 15 months. Heard said in a sworn declaration that Depp threw her cellphone at her during a fight Saturday, striking her cheek and eye. She submitted a picture of her bruised face when she applied for a restraining order Friday. She also wrote that the actor pulled her hair, screamed at her and repeatedly hit her and violently grabbed her face.
Los Angeles Police responded to a domestic violence call at the couple’s home on May 21, but the person who made the call declined to file charges and officers determined no crime occurred.
A judge ordered Depp to stay away from Heard and not to attempt contact with her before a June 17 hearing.
