Annnnnnnnd the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard divorce is officially messy. Amber was granted a domestic violence restraining order against Johnny today claiming that the actor has repeatedly abused her throughout their marriage. The last straw was Saturday night when he allegedly smashed his iPhone on her face. Not helping his case is the giant bruise Amber was sporting on the side of her face as she left court today (she looks solemn in the pic above, but she broke down like a baby once she reached her car). From USA Today:
Heard's filing Friday alleged a history of abuse throughout her relationship with Depp, according to The Associated Press.
"During the entirety of our relationship, Johnny has been verbally and physically abusive to me," Heard wrote. "I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him."
Heard said the actor was high and drunk when Saturday's alleged abuse occurred. "I live in fear that Johnny will return to (our house) unannounced to terrorize me, physically and emotionally," Heard wrote in a sworn declaration.
In case you're wondering, Amber will be represented by attorney Samantha Spector, while Johnny . . . who was Chris Brown's lawyer again? Seriously, that guy was good. With all the shit he's done, Chris Brown should be panhandling right now to make ends meet. Instead he spits at panhandlers from one of his eight Lamborghinis. Or is it nine?

The last time we checked in when Johnny Depp and Amber Heard they were making a super awkward video apologizing for sneaking their dogs into Australia. And now this. After a little over a year of marriage, Amber filed for divorce on Monday. To make matters somehow worse for Johnny, his mom -- who he was extremely close to -- died on Friday. Jesus fucking Christ that is a shitty three day weekend. From TMZ:
Amber filed her divorce petition Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple married in February of last year, yet Amber is asking for spousal support.
Our sources say the couple had NO prenup.
Johnny has filed his response through his lawyer, Laura Wasser. He is asking the judge to reject Amber's claim for spousal support.
God damn Amber Heard is a fucking ice queen. The man's mom died on Friday. Was it really necessary to file divorce papers the following Monday? What could he have done so wrong that you wouldn't give him a month to mourn the death of his mother? Unless . . . no way . . . could it be . . . Johnny Depp is gonna start campaigning for Donald Trump, isn't he? Okay, completely understandable, Amber. Carry on.

As part of the plea deal and to avoid jail time for failing to declare their Yorkshire terriers during a trip to Australia last year, Johnny Depp and his wife Amber Heard had to record a hilarious video apology to the entire nation. Mission accomplished: the #WarOnTerrier is officially over. From CNN:
In the video apology released by the Australian government, a stony-faced Heard sits alongside Depp to state she is "truly sorry that Pistol and Boo were not declared. Protecting Australia is important."
"Australia is a wonderful island with a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people," the actress said. "Australia is free of many pests and diseases that are commonplace around the world. That is why Australia has to have such strong biosecurity laws."
Depp added: "Australians are just as unique, both warm and direct. When you disrespect Australian law, they will tell your firmly. Declare everything when you enter Australia."
Yes, it may seem ridiculous that Johnny and Amber had to go through all this over a couple of dogs, but don't forget that Australia is also the nation that banned Chris Brown so fuck you they can do whatever the hell they want. I'm starting a GoFundMe to send Malcolm Turnbull a fruit basket.

Since news broke about their engagement, people have naturally been wondering how Amber Heard finally convinced Johnny Depp to propose. His last girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis, went 14 years without getting a ring. It look Amber a little over a year. Turns out Johnny just needed a little direction in his life. Via Contact Music:
A source who knows them both said: "Amber has called the shots since day one, dictating when they went public, for example. She's half his age and that's part of why he'll do whatever she wants in order to keep her."
Another source added: "He has definitely toned down his behavior since he started dating Amber. He acts like a mature and charming man now."
Come on, people, work with me. Amber isn't running anything, she only thinks she is because Gilbert Grape lets her get away with her hot uppitiness for now. Mr. Depp was always gonna survive the Lone Ranger debacle just by his star power alone, so I'm pretty sure he can take an order or two -- as long as it's followed by a toe-curling mouth favor. Look, at 27-years-old, Amber is in the second half of her prime but unless she figures out how to stop time like Kate Beckinsale, she's about three seasons away from getting exchanged for Selena Gomez.

Did Johnny Depp propose to Amber Heard? The two haven't even made their relationship "official" yet (I demand you seek my approval!), but Amber was spotted trying to hide a huge diamond ring earlier this week in L.A. Maybe she was trying to steal it? From E!:
Despite a good effort to keep her left hand covered, an eagle-eyed paparazzo got a bird's-eye view of what appeared to be a diamond ring on that ringer as Heard was leaving a restaurant last night in Los Angeles.
A source tells E! News, meanwhile, that Heard and another woman hit L.A. restaurant Ago for dinner last night and it was when she was first heading in that the intrepid photographer noticed her hand. Heard was inside for about an hour and a half and, on her way out, she was doing everything to hide her hand, the source said. The actress also waited for the valet driver to open her car door for her, seemingly so as not to have to expose her hand for an extra second.
So did Johnny propose to Amber? Maybe he did, maybe he didn't -- it doesn't matter because it's all just part of the dance. Here's a little info for my younger readers that will help you be major successes in life or just total douchebags in general, depending on your point of view: Sometimes men exaggerate feelings, like our dear Captain Jack Sparrow over here. Johnny really enjoys plowing Amber, but at 27-years-old, the gal is three years away from being put out to the Hollywood pasture (which for actors is a long run on the SyFy channel). Johnny will string Amber along for another year with that meaningless bobble, and by then his future girlfriend will be finished with high school and will be totally legal -- as commanded from the bible of Clooney, amen.
